Cerebral Magnetic Resonance imaging in acute postictal period is performed to exclude structural processes that can be responsible for the epileptic activity. Sometimes, the findings are the result of the epileptic activity, and not the cause reflecting the pathophysiologic changes during epileptic activity. In this paper we describe a patient with status(More)
The study of gene expression in plants is fundamental, and understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in important biological processes, such as biochemical pathways or signaling that are used or manipulated in improvement programs, are key for the production of high-quality soybean seeds. Reports related to gene expression of lignin in seeds are(More)
Spinal subdural haematoma is a rare pathology and may cause severe neurological deficit. In this paper a case of acute spinal subdural haematoma of multifactorial etiology--traumatic versus iatrogenic--is presented, in which the clinical evaluation, Computerized Tomography and Magnetic Resonance were of utmost importance as far as the early diagnosis is(More)
We quantified and characterized the expression of heat-resistant proteins during seed development of maize lines with distinct levels of tolerance to high drying temperature. A corn field was planted for multiplication of seeds of different lines, two tolerant and two non-tolerant to high drying temperatures. Harvest of the seeds was carried out at various(More)
Fusarium oxysporum f. sp cubense (Foc), the causal agent of Panama disease, is responsible for economic losses in banana crops worldwide. The identification of genes that effectively act on pathogenicity and/or virulence may contribute to the development of different strategies for disease control and the production of resistant plants. The objective of the(More)
Renal transplant patients are often found to have high blood pressure. We studied 12 cyclosporine-treated patients 8-10 days after kidney transplantation by 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and once again at 35-40 days after kidney transplantation. The patients were found to have high mean blood pressure values at 8-10 days after(More)
Dr. Pedro Beleza – Serviço de Neurologia / Hospital São Marcos Largo Carlos Amarante, Apartado 2242 4701-965 Braga Portugal. E-mail: Acute arteriopathies represent 79% of stroke in children. Chickenpox is the primary etiologic agent involved in 60% of cases and usually carries a good prognosis. We report on a patient with multiple(More)
We present a case of a 75-year-old woman with right mandible cystic lesion and primary hyperparathyroidism. The MRI demonstrated marked loss of signal intensity on T2 gradient-echo images, suggesting intralesional hemossiderin. After an open biopsy, histology was consistent with "brown tumor." The finding of susceptibility on T2 gradient-echo images in a(More)
