Ischemia of the motoneurons in the anterior horn is a well known pathological entity. Their clinical signs and symptoms are similar to those of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Evidence by selective angiography of angiomas of the spinal cord or compression or deviation of Adamkiewicz artery may be suggestive of an initial vascular lesion. Various data(More)
Perineal pain is the basis of presentation to different specialities. This pain is still rather unknown and leads the different teams to inappropriate treatments which may fail. For more than twenty years, we have seen these patients in a multidisciplinary consultation. Our anatomical works have provided a detailed knowledge of the nervous supply of the(More)
Neuropathic perineal pains are generally linked to suffering of the pudendal nerve. But some patients present pains described as a type of burning sensation located more laterally on the anal margin and on areas including the scrotum or the labiae majorae, the caudal and medial parts of the buttock and the upper part of the thigh. These pains extend beyond(More)
Clinical observations in patients suffering from positional perineal pain have led us to performing an anatomical study of the pudendal nerve in order to demonstrate compression of this nerve trunk by elements likely to compress it in the sitting position. Thus we observed that the falciform process of the sacrotuberous ligament may act in this way. Besides(More)
PURPOSE Rectal examination is difficult to carry out by students because of their lack of knowledge and fear. It is therefore necessary to search for methods in order to facilitate its practice. This work mainly focuses on the palpation of the posterior lateral area of the rectum. METHODS This work bases itself on the study of the average length of(More)
Three cases of rapid onset neuropsychological frontal dementia preceded the development of sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis by 12 to 24 months. HmPAO Tc99m scintigraphy demonstrated hypoactivity in the cortex, predominantly in the frontal region. Three hypotheses are discussed: 1) coincidence between two degenerative diseases, Alzheimer's disease or(More)
The anatomic study of the pudendal nerve and its relation allows an approach of the mechanisms of compression likely to engender perineal neuralgia. Two conflictual zones are isolated: the first is linked to the clamp which is produced by the insertion of the sacro-epinous ligament on the ischial spine and the sacro-tuberal ligament; the second is linked to(More)
A case of rigid spine syndrome in a woman is reported. There were a diffuse myopathic process, with atrophy and mild weakness not involving the face and a major rigidity of the spine. Contractures were present as well as a pure restrictive respiratory failure. Heart-rythm disorders and prolapse of the mitral valve were present. Histological features of a(More)
