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)
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)
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)
Although blepharospasm has been occasionally associated with parkinsonism, it has rarely been reported in patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA). We report a 65-year-old woman with MSA who developed blepharospasm seven years after onset, rendering her functionally blind. Clinical course and the findings of magnetic resonance imaging indicated(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)
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)
In neuro-Behcet's disease (NBD), myelitis is a rare clinical form. We report the case of a woman with NBD presenting with unsteady gait and generalized spasticity. Spinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed multiple and confluent hyperintensities extending throughout the entire spinal cord on a T2-weighted image with some contrast enhancement. High-dose(More)
Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by acute severe headache with or without additional neurological symptoms and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction. Unruptured aneurysm has been reported in some cases with RCVS. We report a severe case of a 53-year-old woman with RCVS having an unruptured cerebral aneurysm and presenting(More)
A 49-year-old man with cataracts had uneventful phacoemulsification, continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis, and implantation of an MA30BA acrylic foldable intraocular lens (IOL) in the bag. One week later, 1 haptic spontaneously dropped off and the optic dislocated into the anterior chamber. The IOL was surgically removed and replaced with a new acrylic(More)
