A 31-year-old male, who had received a cadaveric renal allograft in April 2003, consulted a clinic for a transient hemiplegia in August 2004. At that time, a course observation without medication was chosen. In October 2004, he was admitted to our hospital by ambulance with a clonic seizure and a recurrence of hemiplegia on the right side of his body. Head(More)
Pearson's syndrome is a disease of refractory sideroblastic anemia and exocrine pancreatic dysfunction due to abnormal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). A male infant with Pearson's syndrome developed necrosis of both thalami and basal ganglia when he suffered from gastroenteritis at 1 year and 11 months of age. He died of sepsis at the age of 2 years and 4(More)
INTRODUCTION Peripheral sensory neuropathy is known to be associated with several medical conditions; however, it has not been reported in patients with cerebral palsy. Authors have observed pathological changes in the sensory nerve rootlets taken during selective dorsal rhizotomy. This paper reports a possible novel cause of peripheral sensory neuropathy:(More)
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) has been increasingly recognized as a common source of elevated pulmonary vascular resistance and pulmonary hypertension. It is clear that development of pulmonary thromboemboli is the inciting event for this process, yet it remains unclear why some patients have persistent pulmonary artery occlusion(More)
A case of idiopathic nonarteriosclerotic cerebral calcification was studied post mortem by histochemical and scanning and transmission electron microscopic methods. Calcification was found bilaterally in the basal ganglia, cerebral cortex, granular layer and white matter of the cerebellum. Histochemical examination revealed that deposits were composed of a(More)
A 47-year-old female presented with an unusual cystic meningioma. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic tumor with marked edema in the left parietal region of the brain, resembling a metastatic tumor. The tumor was totally removed. Histological examination revealed meningioma with dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates.
It has been reported that cytokeratin 8 (CK8) is expressed in all non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLC). We hypothesized that antigenic changes of CK8 may occur in some NSCLC cell lines. To prove this, Western immunoblot analysis using anti-human CK8 monoclonal antibodies as well as immunohistological staining of CK8 were performed in NSCLC cell lines. As a(More)
A 74-year-old man was referred to our hospital because of persistent cough. A chest radiograph revealed an elevation of the right diaphragm. Computed tomography (CT) images revealed a small nodule localized on the right mediastinum. Five months later, the nodule had grown and was diagnosed as malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) by a CT-guided needle(More)
PURPOSE It has been advocated that intraoperative electrophysiological monitoring is mandatory in selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR). However, it is still uncertain whether the monitoring procedure effectively differentiates dysfunctional rootlets. We histologically analyzed sectioned rootlets in SDR, in order to confirm the efficacy of the monitoring. (More)
