Neuropathology and neuroimaging of long-term survival cases of arginase deficiency are rarely reported. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of our case showed severe multicystic white matter lesions with cortical atrophy, which were more severe compared with previous reports. In this patient, low-protein diet successfully reduced hyperammonemia, but(More)
OBJECTIVE De novo SCN8A mutations have been reported in patients with epileptic encephalopathy. Herein we report seven patients with de novo heterozygous SCN8A mutations, which were found in our comprehensive genetic analysis (target capture or whole-exome sequencing) for early onset epileptic encephalopathies (EOEEs). METHODS A total of 163 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Proteolipid protein 1 gene (PLP1) mutations result in a continuum of neurological findings characterized by X-linked hypomyelinating leukodystrophies of the central nervous system, from mild spastic paraplegia type 2 to severe Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease. PATIENTS We report spastic paraplegia type 2 in three individuals in one family. A(More)
A female patient presented with developmental delay, distinctive facial features, and congenital anomalies, including a heart defect and premature lambdoid synostosis. The patient showed a paternally inherited 16p13.11 microduplication and a de novo 19p13.3 microdeletion involving the mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 2 gene (MAP2K2), in which(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE X-linked α-thalassemia/mental retardation syndrome (Mendelian Inheritance in Man, 301040) is one of the X-linked intellectual disability syndromes caused by mutations of the ATRX gene and characterized by male predominance, central hypotonic facies, severe cognitive dysfunction, hemoglobin H disease (α-thalassemia), genital and(More)
Sever motor and intellectual disabilities (SMID) patients can't express their feelings with languages. That's why it is important to measure and analyze their brain activity. In this study, we tried to investigate the brain response to hearing subject's own name of healthy people and one patient with SMID by analyzing EEG. The results of time frequency(More)
BACKGROUND In order to clarify the correlation between morphological characteristics and clinical features in epilepsy patients with unilateral hippocampal abnormality, morphological and morphometric magnetic resonance imaging studies were performed. METHODS We selected a series of childhood-onset epilepsy patients with unilateral hippocampal abnormality.(More)
BACKGROUND Aspartylglucosaminuria (AGU) is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder caused by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme, aspartylglucosaminidase (AGA). This disorder is rare in the general population except in Finland. Since the most characteristic feature of this disorder is a progressive developmental regression, patients often show no(More)
PURPOSE The level of residual cognitive function in patients with early brain injury is a key factor limiting rehabilitation and the quality of life. Although understanding residual function is necessary for appropriate rehabilitation, the extent of its effects on cognitive improvement remains unknown. This study evaluated cognitive function in patients(More)
