A 63-year-old man presented with cognitive impairment including disturbance of memory functions and character change. Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed signal hyperintensities in the bilateral medial temporal lobes. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed high protein concentrations, positive results for the(More)
Animal bite injuries are often encountered in daily practice. In particular, these injuries of the upper limbs can result in severe functional impairment. We have performed early debridement of contaminated tissue and primary closure for these injuries. The subjects consisted of 15 patients (6 males and 9 females) aged 1–91 years (mean 53.6 years) who(More)
