OBJECTIVES To estimate the risk of seizure recurrence after antiepileptic drugs (AED) withdrawal and to identify related predictive features in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) commencing at developing age (up to 16 year). METHODS Medical records of consecutive patients with IGE from two refferal hospitals were evaluated between 2001(More)
Paragangliomas are tumors arising from the extra-adrenal paragangliar neural crest cells. The sympathoadrenal neuroendocrine system consists of extra-adrenal paragangliar cellular layer along the paravertebral and para-aortic axis, and the adrenal medullae. Paraganglioma should be included in the differential diagnosis of secondary erythrocytosis due to its(More)
Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) affects more commonly patients over 60 years. These patients have vast number of comorbidities which can modify survival as well as other clinical parameters. The aim of this study was to evaluate prognostic significance of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network International Prognostic Index (NCCN-IPI), absolute(More)
BACKGROUND Microcephaly-capillary malformation syndrome is a newly described neurocutaneous entity that is characterized by congenital and progressive microcephaly, intractable epilepsy, profound developmental delay, multiple small capillary malformations on the skin, and poor somatic growth. Recently, mutations in the STAMBP gene have been identified as(More)
PURPOSE The goal of the study was to assess the outcome of antiepileptic drug (AED) withdrawal in children and adolescents with cryptogenic focal epilepsies (CFE). METHODS Medical records of consecutive patients with CFE from two referral hospitals were retrospectively evaluated over a nine-year period. Inclusion criteria were: (1) diagnosis of CFE(More)
BACKGROUND People with epilepsy who became seizure-free while taking antiepileptic drugs might consider discontinuing their medication, with the possibility of increased quality of life because of the elimination of adverse events. The risk with this action, however, is seizure recurrence. The objectives of our study were to identify predictors of seizure(More)
A variety of normal human tissues have been reported to harbor small cell populations carrying potentially oncogenic gene rearrangements. This backdrop of mutant cells may be present in the majority of healthy individuals and is apparently weakly selected against. This may provide empirical support for the concept of global neutrality, or near-neutrality(More)
