Hydrocephalus is a common but complex condition caused by physical or functional obstruction of CSF flow that leads to progressive ventricular dilatation. Though hydrocephalus was recently estimated to affect 1.1 in 1000 infants, there have been few systematic assessments of the causes of hydrocephalus in this age group, which makes it a challenging(More)
Rhombencephalosynapsis is a midline brain malformation characterized by missing cerebellar vermis with apparent fusion of the cerebellar hemispheres. Rhombencephalosynapsis can be seen in isolation or together with other central nervous system and extra-central nervous system malformations. Gómez-López-Hernández syndrome combines rhombencephalosynapsis with(More)
Little is known about the epilepsy that often occurs in the juvenile form of Huntington's disease (HD), but is absent from the adult-onset form. The primary aim of this study was to characterize the seizures in juvenile HD (JHD) subjects with regard to frequency, semiology, defining EEG characteristics, and response to antiepileptic agents. A multicenter,(More)
OBJECTIVE Mutations of ATP1A3 have been associated with rapid onset dystonia-parkinsonism and more recently with alternating hemiplegia of childhood. Here we report one child with catastrophic early life epilepsy and shortened survival, and another with epilepsy, episodic prolonged apnea, postnatal microcephaly, and severe developmental disability. Novel(More)
We present the case of a female infant referred for prenatal MR evaluation of ventriculomegaly, which had been attributed by the referring obstetrician to aqueductal stenosis. Fetal MR confirmed ventriculomegaly but also demonstrated cerebral volume loss and white matter abnormalities. After birth, the infant developed persistent lactic acidosis. A(More)
Rhombencephalosynapsis (RES) is an uncommon cerebellar malformation characterized by fusion of the hemispheres without an intervening vermis. Frequently described in association with Gómez-López-Hernández syndrome, RES also occurs in conjunction with VACTERL features and with holoprosencephaly (HPE). We sought to determine the full phenotypic spectrum of(More)
The reaction of the [Ru(bpy)(NO(2))(4)](2-) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine) ion in aqueous solutions produces two different nitrosyl complexes, depending on the pH of the solution. At acidic pH, complex cis,cis-Ru(bpy)(NO(2))(2)(ONO)(NO) was isolated. At neutral or basic pH, [Ru(bpy)(NO(2))(4)](2-) reacts to give cis,trans-Ru(bpy)(NO(2))(2)(NO)(OH). Both new(More)
OBJECTIVE Hydrocephalus, a complex condition characterized by progressive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid within the ventricular system of the brain, affects ∼ 6 in 10,000 infants and is heterogeneous in nature. Previous investigations of risk factors have not considered etiologic heterogeneity. METHODS We conducted a case-control study of 1748(More)
OBJECTIVE Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is a complication of prematurity often associated with ventricular dilation, which may resolve over time or progress to posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH). This study investigated anatomical factors that could predispose infants with IVH to PHH. METHODS The authors analyzed a cohort of premature infants diagnosed(More)
PurposeNext-generation sequencing (NGS) often identifies multiple rare predicted-deleterious variants (RDVs) in different genes associated with a recessive disorder in a given patient. Such variants have been proposed to contribute to digenicity/oligogenicity or "triallelism" or to act as genetic modifiers.MethodsUsing the recessive ciliopathy Joubert(More)
