BACKGROUND Although recent studies have suggested that adherence to antihypertensive treatment reduced stroke incidence, the relationship of adherence to antihypertensives with stroke severity has not been studied. This study attempted to know whether nonadherence before stroke is associated with initial severity of acute ischemic stroke. METHODS(More)
We report a case of aortic dissection masquerading as acute ischemic stroke followed by intravenous thrombolysis. A 59-year-old man presented with dizziness. After examination, the patient had a seizure with bilateral Babinski signs. Soon after identifying multiple acute infarctions in both hemispheres on diffusion-weighted brain magnetic resonance (MR)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The association between blood glucose fluctuation and poststroke cardiovascular outcome has been largely unknown. This study attempted to evaluate whether initial glycemic variability increases cardiovascular events and mortality in diabetic patients with acute ischemic stroke. METHODS We recruited consecutive patients with acute(More)
Uremic encephalopathy with bilateral basal ganglia lesions has been reported as an acute neurometabolic disease which shows reversible clinical course and brain imaging features. The exact nature and pathophysiology have not been well established. We encountered two patients who showed a relapsing and aggravating course and an atypical phenotype including(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is conflicting evidence for whether or not the incidence of stroke is influenced by the daily temperature. The association between daily temperature and incidence of stroke is largely unknown in Korea. This study attempted to evaluate whether the maximum or minimum daily temperature is associated with increased numbers of(More)
