Bunina bodies (BBs) are small eosinophilic neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions (NCIs) found in the remaining lower motor neurons (LMNs) of patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (SALS), being a specific feature of the cellular pathology. We examined a case of SALS, unassociated with TDP-43 or C9ORF72 mutation, of 12 years duration in a 75-year-old(More)
A 66-year-old, right-handed male, was admitted to our hospital with difficulty in recognizing faces and colors. He had suffered a stroke in the right occipital region three years earlier that had induced left homonymous hemianopsia, but not prosopagnosia. A neurological examination revealed prosopagnosia, color agnosia, constructional apraxia, and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Our aim was to study the efficacy of robotic therapy as an adjuvant to standard therapy during poststroke rehabilitation. METHODS Prospective, open, blinded end point, randomized, multicenter exploratory clinical trial in Japan of 60 individuals with mild to moderate hemiplegia 4 to 8 weeks post stroke randomized to receive standard(More)
Although stroke affects nearly 15 million people worldwide annually, with 5 million experiencing some degree of permanent paralysis, appropriate rehabilitation programs can improve motor function and quality of life. For example, repetitive voluntary movement of the paralyzed limb can improve function and remodel neural circuits. Robotic technologies may be(More)
A 76-year-old man who rapidly developed quadriparesis was admitted to our hospital. MRI showed an epidural mass extending from C4 to C6, displacing the spinal cord anteriorly. It showed isointensity on the T1-weighted imagines, hyperintensity on the T2-weighted images, and diffuse hyperintensity with gadolinium enhancement. Plain radiographs, CT and MRI(More)
The origin of patchy white matter hyperintensities commonly seen in the elderly on magnetic resonance (MR) images with long repetition time (TR) is still controversial. We describe MR findings in older patients in whom white matter hyperintensities were attenuated by compression of the cerebral hemisphere from a chronic subdural hematoma. These sequential(More)
