As the Internet grows in scale and complexity, the need for accurate traffic measurement increases. Among the different parameters relevant to traffic measurement, the paper pays attention to the available bandwidth of a path. In particular, a performance comparison of three different techniques, devoted to available bandwidth measurement, is attained under(More)
Arachnoid cysts (AC) are usually asymptomatic. However, very rarely they can become symptomatic due to cyst enlargement or haemorrhage, often after head trauma. In such cases bleeding is often confined to the subdural space, but intracystic haemorrhage has rarely been observed. We report a case of a child who had intracranial hypertension syndrome due to a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the frequency and the main clinical features of tremor in primary adult-onset dystonia (PAOD). METHODS This cross-sectional study was conducted on 429 patients with PAOD from eight Italian movement disorder centres. RESULTS Of the 429 dystonic patients, 72 (16.7%) had tremor. Although sex and age at dystonia onset were similar(More)
Despite clinical similitude, there is a tendency to consider trigeminal pain in multiple sclerosis (MS) as a distinct condition. To evaluate clinical differences in trigeminal pain presentation in patients with and without underlying MS, we compared clinical characteristics of facial pain found in 15 consecutive MS patients with those reported by 13(More)
Sir, with very few exceptions, neurological paraneoplastic syndromes do not remit spontaneously [1]. Critical analysis of the role of immunosuppressive therapy is hampered by the rarity of the syndrome and by reports in which patients received concomitant tumour therapy and immunosuppressive treatment [2, 3]. In our case, instead, we observed the effect of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Despite the growing number of reports describing adult-onset primary lower limb dystonia (LLD) this entity has never been systematically evaluated in the general population of patients with primary adult-onset dystonia. METHODS From outpatients with adult-onset primary dystonia attending nine Italian University centres for movement(More)
BACKGROUND The site of dystonia onset is known to affect the risk of spread in primary adult-onset focal dystonia, but other factors possibly influencing spread are unknown. This study explored the relationship between age and spread of dystonia in primary adult-onset focal dystonia. METHODS Two survival models analyzed spread of dystonia in a large(More)
Weak cathodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the human hand area modulates corticospinal excitability with a suppression of motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) evoked by transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The changes in excitability persist beyond the time of stimulation if tDCS is given for several minutes and can remain stable for an(More)
