BACKGROUND Mutations in the progranulin gene (PGRN) are a major cause of frontotemporal lobar degeneration with tau-negative and ubiquitin-positive neuronal inclusions. Most previous studies aimed at characterizing the clinical and neuropsychological phenotype of PGRN mutation carriers included patients with different PGRN mutations, assuming that the(More)
We report a 61-year-old alcoholic man who presented with subacute physical deterioration and severe dysarthria. MRI, suggestive of corpus callosum demyelination with associated white matter involvement in both cerebral hemispheres, indicated the diagnosis of Marchiafava-Bignami disease. During his stay in hospital the patient showed remarkable improvement,(More)
INTRODUCTION The appearance of tremor after thalamic lesions is well-known but infrequent. Amongst the semiological varieties of thalamic tremors, a particularly uncommon type--which is extremely incapacitating owing to its great amplitude, appearance during action and poor therapeutic response--is the so-called rubric or mesencephalic tremor. CLINICAL(More)
INTRODUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT The subthalamic nucleus (STN) plays a crucial part in the pathophysiology of Parkinsonism. Its inactivation improves all the main signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Surgery of the STN in patients with the disease is effective and the benefit/risk relationship very favorable. Although the dyskinesias are not a definite(More)
INTRODUCTION Mesencephalic infarcts usually produce clinical features that allow the lesion to be located with precision, although they do not always match the patterns included in the classical syndromes reported in the literature, as occurs in the case we describe here. CASE REPORT We report the case of a 73-year-old female with no cardiovascular risk(More)
Recently, with the advent of emerging technologies such as radio frequency identification (RFID), various sensors, and wireless tele-communication, we can have the visibility of asset status information over the whole asset lifecycle. It gives us new challenging issues for improving the efficiency of asset operations. One of the most challenging problems is(More)
We report the case of a woman presenting with a gait disorder. Magnetic resonance the brain showed a large parieto-neuroepithelial cyst. Surgery was ruled out and a new image taken nearly two years later showed the cyst cavity had collapsed spontaneously. The benign course of this type of lesion and the possibility of spontaneous recurrence suggest that a(More)
