The syndrome of cutaneous vascular naevus, varicose veins appearing in childhood and hypertrophy of soft tissue and bone in one limb was described in 1900 by Klippel and Trenaunay [1]; later, Parkes-Weber added arteriovenous fistulae to the findings of the syndrome [2]. Bilateral involvement is not uncommon [3]. The syndrome is known as a sporadic condition(More)
PURPOSE To define various cranial MR appearances in Wilson's disease (WD). MATERIAL AND METHODS MR examinations of 30 patients (9-44 years old) with WD were retrospectively reviewed. Six patients were asymptomatic siblings. Three other patients had isolated hepatic involvement, one with no symptoms. The remaining 21 patients had neurological involvement,(More)
The pattern of inflammatory infiltration was studied in the frontal brain biopsies of 28 cases with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) by immunohistochemistry. Lymphocytic infiltration and gliosis were common pathologic findings. CD4+ T lymphocytes were often observed in perivascular areas and CD8+ lymphocytes in the parenchyma. B lymphocytes were(More)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is associated with inflammatory infiltration, neuronal loss, and demyelination. The pathogenesis of these changes is unclear. We examined DNA fragmentation and Bcl-2 expression in brain biopsies of nineteen SSPE patients to investigate the role of apoptosis in tissue damage. DNA fragmentation was present in(More)
Twenty-four Turkish children who had had neonatal tetanus were evaluated by means of physical and neurological examinations and psychometric tests at four to 15 years of age. Enuresis, mental retardation and growth retardation were frequent findings. The prevention of neonatal tetanus is important not only because of the high mortality rate but also because(More)
Genomic imbalances constitute a major cause of congenital and developmental abnormalities. GLUT1 deficiency syndrome is caused by various de novo mutations in the facilitated human glucose transporter 1 gene (1p34.2) and patients with this syndrome have been diagnosed with hypoglycorrhachia, mental and developmental delay, microcephaly and seizures.(More)
Thirty-four MRI studies of 26 patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis are reported. Lesions of high signal intensity on T2-weighted images are the most common finding; they frequently involve the periventricular or subcortical white matter. Lesions tend to start in the cortex-subcortical white matter and progress with periventricular white matter(More)
