BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Nocturia is a common complaint in sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), but there is no study demonstrating the prevalence and frequency of nocturnal urination in a large number of SDB patients. To determine the prevalence and frequency of nocturnal urination among patients with SDB of different severities and to discover the factors(More)
Nocturia is an often-described symptom of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). The aim of our study was to determine the frequency of nocturnal urination among patients with different severity of SDB and to find out whether frequency of nocturnal urination reflects the severity of disease. A retrospective chart review was conducted among 1075 subjects of(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the effect of breathing and physical exercise on pulmonary functions, apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), and quality of life in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Twenty patients with mild to moderate OSAS were included in the study either as exercise or control group. The control group did not receive any(More)
Segmental zoster paresis, a rare complication of herpes zoster, is characterized by focal, asymmetric motor weakness in the myotome that corresponds to the dermatome of the rash. The pathogenesis of segmental zoster paresis is inflammation caused by the spread of the herpes virus. Motor damage may affect the root, plexus, or peripheral nerve. A woman in her(More)
Miller Fisher syndrome classically presents with ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. The syndrome may present rarely with atypical clinical features. Whether the central or peripheral nervous system is primarily involved remains controversial. Miller Fisher syndrome usually follows an infection, the most likely being Campylobacter jejuni. Mycoplasma(More)
INTRODUCTION Several co-morbid diseases have been shown to affect sexual functions in both genders. In the literature, sexual function status in men with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has been studied; however, sexual functions in women with OSAS have not yet been studied. AIMS In this prospective study, we aimed to determine sexual function(More)
STUDY DESIGN Magnetic lumbar stimulation was used to detect spinal nerve degeneration in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). OBJECTIVE To evaluate delays in the motor conduction time in the cauda equina of patients with LSS. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Previous studies suggested a bilateral slowing of motor conduction in the cauda equina in LSS.(More)
OBJECTIVE To find out whether there is a relationship between the headache characteristics and polysomnographic findings in patients with prediagnosis of the sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) and, if there is, to search for its possible cause. BACKGROUND Chronic morning headache is considered by many to be an important part of the SAS. Some reports support this(More)
A 66-year-old woman with no history of trauma presented with severe shoulder pain. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed rupture of the supraspinatus tendon, for which surgical treatment was considered. However, it was noted that shoulder pain was accompanied by weakness in the shoulder muscles, and the patient underwent electroneuromyographic examination,(More)
Movement disorders and epilepsy rarely occur in the early stage of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) but have not been reported concurrently. We report on a 47-year-old patient with probable CJD who presented with generalized chorea and focal dystonia with myoclonic jerks on the right hand. Myoclonic jerks progressed to epilepsia partialis continua within 5(More)
