Sweet's disease with central nervous system involvement, tentatively named neuro-Sweet's disease, has rarely been reported. Although systemic corticosteroid therapy is highly effective for neurologic symptoms in neuro-Sweet's disease, relapse is common. Here, we describe the case of a 38-year-old Japanese man who presented with relapsing neuro-Sweet's(More)
We report a patient with the varicella zoster viral (VZV) infection of multiple cranial nerves mimicking Garcin syndrome, who initially presented with Ramsay Hunt syndrome (herpes zoster oticus). A 78-year-old man showed left facial palsy with zosteric eruptions in his left auricle and dysphagia, followed by left total ophthalmoplegia. His serum anti-VZV(More)
The involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) in Sweet's syndrome (acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis) is rare. We report a 47-year-old woman who presented with acute encephalitis and was subsequently diagnosed as having Sweet's syndrome. She developed altered consciousness following fever and erythematous skin plaques in the extremities.(More)
We report the rare case of a 38-year-old man who suffered from aseptic meningitis. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed an ovoid lesion with a high signal intensity on T2- and diffusion-weighted images in the splenium of the corpus callosum that completely disappeared within a week. There were no symptoms or signs associated with the lesion, and the(More)
We prospectively studied the clinical and electrophysiological features of myoclonic tremulous movements in patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA). Among 42 consecutive patients, 12 MSA-p (parkinsonian type) and 3 MSA-c (cerebellar type) patients showed small-amplitude myoclonic movements. These movements occurred in the distal part of the arms and(More)
OBJECTIVES Segmental zoster paresis is a relatively rare complication characterized by focal motor weakness, which may occur in limbs affected by herpes zoster. We demonstrate the clinical characteristics of segmental zoster paresis by reviewing the cases of 138 patients, including 3 of our patients. CASE REPORT AND REVIEW SUMMARY We report 3 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Since serum anti-aquaporin-4 (AQP4) antibody/neuromyelitis optica (NMO)-IgG has been detected as a specific biomarker for NMO), new diagnostic criteria have been proposed. Recently, a rare coexistence of NMO and myasthenia gravis (MG) has been documented. Here, we provide further evidence of the association of these 2 immunologic disorders and(More)
Although seizures have been described in hypocalcemia, myoclonus has been rarely reported. We report the first case of a patient with hypocalcemic cortical myoclonus due to hypoparathyroidism following a previous thyroidectomy. The patient was an 84-year-old woman who presented with multifocal myoclonus, which was predominant in the upper extremities, neck,(More)
