PURPOSE To determine the MR and CT appearance of the normal pediatric larynx. METHODS Fifteen CT scans and 15 MR examinations of children with normal larynges and airways were reviewed retrospectively. Characteristics that were noted included the level of the hyoid bone, calcification and signal intensity within separate laryngeal components, amount of(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) occurs frequently after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). It is a clinical challenge to distinguish between SIRS and incipient infection. Procalcitonin (PCT) has been studied among general critical care patients as a biomarker for infection. We hypothesized that PCT could be useful to(More)
Autoimmune encephalitis associated with antibodies targeting the neuronal surface antigen leucine-rich, glioma-inactivated 1 (LGI1) protein is accompanied by faciobrachial dystonic seizures (FBDS) in up to half of patients. These hallmark episodes can be mistaken for psychiatric disorders, particularly as the ictal episodes are usually not detectable with(More)
Corporations, industries and non-governmental organizations have become increasingly concerned with growing water risks in many parts of the world. Most of the focus has been on water scarcity and competition for the resource between agriculture, urban users, ecology and industry. However, water risks are multi-dimensional. Water-related hazards include(More)
OBJECTIVE Most patients with localization-related epilepsy (LRE) and genetic generalized epilepsy (GGE) are classified based on semiology and video-EEG, but both features occasionally fail to provide a definitive diagnosis. Several reliable lateralizing signs have been described, although hand and finger posturing has received little attention. We sought to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and identify the frequency of hand postures during generalized convulsions in patients with genetic generalized epilepsy (GGE), localization-related epilepsy (LRE), and nonepileptic attacks (NEA). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 98 consecutive videos of generalized convulsions in 62 patients who were admitted for diagnostic(More)
INTRODUCTION Precision medicine provides individualized treatment of diseases through leveraging patient-to-patient variation. Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage carries tremendous morbidity and mortality with cerebral vasospasm and delayed cerebral ischemia proving devastating and unpredictable. Lack of treatment measures for these conditions could be(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether patients who have acute graft-versus-host disease (AGVHD), are more likely to have radiographically abnormal paranasal sinuses after bone marrow transplantation than patients without AGVHD. METHODS This retrospective case-control study population comprised 45 adult allogeneic or matched unrelated donor patients who underwent(More)
