We previously demonstrated that repeated cold-immobilization stress exposure had lethal effects in cardiomyopathic Syrian hamsters. To clarify the mechanisms of the sudden death, we investigated the effects of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor blockade by dizocilpine on the sudden death of cardiomyopathic hamsters. Repeated exposure (5 days) to(More)

His symptoms had changed into right facial anesthesia with right-ear hearing impairment 8 months before first consulting a neurosurgeon at our hospital. Results obtained(More)
Primary spinal atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is extremely rare. A 9-month-old boy presented with tetraparesis. Subsequent MRI showed an intradural extramedullary bulky mass extending from C4 to T6. Subtotal removal of the tumor was performed and spinal AT/RT was proven histologically. Despite chemotherapy and radiation therapy, leptomeningeal(More)
