The varicella zoster virus vasculopathies
Rash or CSF pleocytosis is not required to diagnose varicella zoster virus (VZV) vasculopathy, whereas MRI/CT abnormalities are seen in almost all patients, and determination of optimal antiviral treatment and benefit of concurrent steroid therapy awaits studies with larger case numbers. Expand
A Proposal for a Coordinated Effort for the Determination of Brainwide Neuroanatomical Connectivity in Model Organisms at a Mesoscopic Scale
A concerted effort is advocated for a concerted effort to fill this gap, through systematic, experimental mapping of neural circuits at a mesoscopic scale of resolution suitable for comprehensive, brainwide coverage, using injections of tracers or viral vectors. Expand
The Community Preceptor Crisis: Recruiting and Retaining Community-Based Faculty to Teach Medical Students—A Shared Perspective From the Alliance for Clinical Education
Recommendations are designed to assist clerkship directors and medical school leaders overcome current challenges and ensure high-quality, community-based clinical learning opportunities for all students. Expand
Ommaya reservoir infections: a 16-year retrospective analysis.
OmR infection occurs in one of every 20 persons with the device, and a third of the infections appear related to OmR placement while the remainder may occur at any time and usually are associated with recent reservoir access. Expand
Review of levetiracetam, with a focus on the extended release formulation, as adjuvant therapy in controlling partial-onset seizures
The extended release formulation of levetiracetam (Keppra XR) provides an efficacious and well-tolerated treatment option for adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial-onset seizures. Expand
Bacterial and fungal meningitis in patients with cancer
Patients with cancer do not manifest symptoms of meningitis as often as patients without cancer and display a very different set of CSF organisms compared to a general population, suggesting the CSF inflammatory response is muted in patients with cancer withMeningitis. Expand
Incorporating sleep medicine content into medical school through neuroscience core curricula
Objective To present (1) justification for earmarking sleep medicine education as an essential component of all medical school curricula and (2) various avenues to incorporate sleep medicine exposureExpand
Netter's concise neuroanatomy
Netter's concise neuroanatomy is presented, which aims at clarifying the role of language in the development of knowledge in motor neurone disease. Expand
The safety of levetiracetam
The most common adverse effects are somnolence, asthenia and dizziness, which usually appear early after initiation of levetiracetam therapy and generally resolve without medication withdrawal. Expand
Varicella zoster virus meningitis with hypoglycorrhachia in the absence of rash in an immunocompetent woman
Cerebrospinal fluid examination revealed the presence of VZV DNA, anti-VZV immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody, and intrathecal production of anti-vZV IgG antibody. Expand
