INTRODUCTION Recurrent Guillain-Barré syndrome is a very rare entity. Few cases have been reported. CASE REPORT We report two patients who have developed a recurrent Guillain-Barré syndrome where one or even two episodes occurred after the same type of surgery, a hip prosthesis replacement. DISCUSSION Occurrence of Guillain-Barré syndrome after surgery(More)
Sampling from conditional distributions is a problem often encountered in statistics when inferences are based on conditional distributions which are not of closed-form. Several Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms to simulate from them are proposed. Potential problems are pointed out and some suitable modifications are suggested. Approximations based(More)
INTRODUCTION Primo-infection by varicella-zoster virus (VZV) may be associated with several neurologic complications. Bilateral facial palsy is a rather uncommon manifestation. CASE REPORT We report the case of a 38-year-old woman who developed bilateral facial diplegia and paresthesia affecting all four limbs with subacute onset several days after(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t We describe a new version of GBS, a 3D global, flux-driven plasma turbulence code to simulate the turbulent dynamics in the tokamak scrape-off layer (SOL), superseding the code presented by Ricci et al. (2012) [14]. The present work is driven by the objective of studying SOL turbulent dynamics in medium size tokamaks(More)
This paper describes the image registration block developed in the hepatic planner HepaPlan. The proposed method is intended to support clinical decisions about treatment of liver pathologies. The initial stage is the segmentation of the liver tissue as well as its internal structures and tumours in contrast-enhanced CT volumes. The second stage is(More)
INTRODUCTION Neuralgic amyotrophy is considered to be a form of mononeuropathy multiplex which generally involves the nerves of the upper limbs. OBSERVATIONS We describe four cases of neuralgic amyotrophy revealed by dyspnea due to phrenic nerve involvement, with asymptomatic motor deficit in the upper part of the brachial plexus. CONCLUSION Phrenic(More)
We report a case of FXTAS in a 58-year-old man who presented with postural tremor, mild ataxia and dysexecutive cognitive signs. The syndrome had a slow progressive course. Brain imaging by MRI showed characteristic abnormalities with mild cerebellar atrophy, symmetric high signals in the middle cerebellar peduncles and in the subcortical white matter of(More)
