There is insufficient information on the epilepsies in Saudi Arabia. The objectives were to classify the patients according to seizure types and epilepsies as well as to determine the factors associated with control. In a hospital-based study, clinical information, electroencephalographic and neuroimaging findings were utilized to classify the cases into(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the pattern of presentation, the types of dementia and the associated conditions in Saudi patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hospital-based study using DSM-IV and ICD 10 criteria for consensus diagnosis of cases from clinical information and results of investigations. Dementia subtypes were made according to NINCDS-ADRDA, NINDS-AIREN(More)
Evoked potential audiometry and brain-stem auditory evoked potentials were evaluated in 15 patients with systemic brucellosis in whom brucella meningitis was suspected clinically. In 8 patients cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was abnormal with high brucella titre, and evoked potentials were abnormal in all of them. In 7 patients the CSF was normal and evoked(More)
The clinical, biochemical and histochemical features of 14 patients (nine females and five males) with severe childhood autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy (SCARMD) seen at a tertiary hospital in Riyadh from 1982 to 1993 are described. Onset was at 3 to 9 (median 3) years and four of five children aged > 12 years lost ambulation. Five of the eight pairs(More)
We determined the motor terminal latency index (MTLI) of the median nerve across the carpal tunnel in 41 upper extremities of 31 patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. Changes in motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV), motor terminal latency (MTL), sensory action potential and the amplitude of the compound muscle action potential recorded from the abductor(More)
The mean values for the brain stem auditory evoked response, the somatosensory evoked response and the visual evoked responses were higher in patients with Parkinson's disease as compared to those who did not have the disease. Significant differences were only seen as prolonged latencies in median nerve somatosensory evoked response, as well as delayed(More)
OBJECTIVES Identification of the clinical spectrum and the electrophysiological responses of a Saudi population with Parkinson's disease as opposed to a matched normal population. METHODS Fifty four subjects (41 males and 13 females) were selected for the study. The patients were clinically evaluated for the occurrence of Parkinson's disease symptoms, as(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the correlation of randomly-tested total antiepileptic plasma levels and seizure control in a retrospectively collected group of pregnant epileptic Saudi women. METHODS The medical records of 30 Saudi epileptic female patients were reviewed during their subsequent pregnancies (total of 50). The type of antiepileptic drugs used during(More)
