OBJECTIVE The characteristics of intracranial tuberculoma on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are not well known. The authors reviewed the features of tuberculoma on CT scans and MRI. The authors also correlated the MRI characteristics on various pulse sequences with neuropathological findings. METHODS The charts of patients(More)
This study presents a large multicenter cohort of children with cerebral venous thrombosis from 5 centers in the United States and analyzes their clinical findings and risk factors. Seventy patients were included in the study (25 neonates, 35%). The age ranged from 6 days to 12 years. Thirty-eight (55%) were younger than 6 months of age, and 28 (40%) were(More)
Small retrospective studies have shown the benefit of endovascular treatment with intrasinus thrombolysis (IST) or mechanical thrombectomy (MT) with/without IST (MT ± IST) in cases of multifocal cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). Our study compares the mortality, functional outcome and periprocedural complications among patients treated with MT ± IST versus(More)
Our objective was to identify the outcome of patients treated with tissue plasminogen activator (r-tPa) in Pakistan and compare these data to available regional and international data. The charts of all patients treated with r-tPa for acute stroke at two centers in Pakistan (Aga Khan University, Karachi and Liaquat National hospital, Karachi) were(More)

BACKGROUND Autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysfunction is present in up to one third of patients with tetanus. The prognostic value of ANS dysfunction is known in severe tetanus but its value is not well established in mild to moderate tetanus. METHODS Medical records of all patients admitted with tetanus at two academic tertiary care centers in Karachi,(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to identify clinical and neuroimaging features and outcome of patients with encephalitis and myelitis associated with dengue viral infection. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 225 cases of dengue viral infection. The diagnosis of dengue was confirmed by serology (presence of IgM antibodies). (More)
Temporal lobe abnormalities on brain imaging have been described as strong evidence for herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) in appropriate clinical settings. Extra temporal abnormalities are less well described in these patients. We retrospectively reviewed 20 patients of HSE and found extra temporal involvement in 11 (55%) patients. Three patients (15 %) had(More)
Wernekink commissure involves the decussation of superior cerebellar peduncle (SCP) in midbrain. We report an elderly hypertensive, diabetic man who developed slurred speech, ataxia, and internuclear ophthalmoplegia. MRI examination revealed an unusual ischemic stroke involving Wernekink commissure. This rare stroke pattern involving decussation of SCP(More)
