A 25-year-old man with multifocal weakness and fasciculation was thought to have motor neuron disease. Signs progressed for 1 year, plateaued, and 3 years later resolved almost completely. There was no evidence of paraproteinemia, lymphoproliferative disorder, or vasculitis, and myelography was normal. Electrodiagnostic study disclosed multifocal, acute and(More)
We report serial electrophysiologic observations in a patient with acute bulbar and respiratory paralysis following ingestion of saxitoxin-contaminated clams. Prolonged distal motor and sensory latencies, slowed conduction velocities, and moderately diminished amplitudes were present at the outset. All values returned to normal over 5 days. These findings,(More)
IMPORTANCE Newer sequencing technologies in combination with traditional gene mapping techniques, such as linkage analysis, can help identify the genetic basis of disease for patients with rare disorders of uncertain etiology. This approach may expand the phenotypic spectrum of disease associated with those genetic mutations. OBJECTIVE To elucidate the(More)
Rizatriptan (MK-462) is a potent 5HTID receptor agonist. This multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, outpatient study investigated the clinical efficacy, safety, and tolerability of rizatriptan (2.5, 5, and 10 mg) as a function of dose for acute migraine. Patients with moderate or severe migraine (n = 417) were treated with placebo (n = 67),(More)
Onion bulb formations involving cranial nerves are an unusual pathologic feature. We report the postmortem neuropathologic findings in a 69-year-old man with a longstanding neuropathy characterized by progressive muscle weakness, sensory ataxia and multiple cranial nerve abnormalities. Electrodiagnostic testing disclosed features of an acquired(More)
