This longitudinal study examined whether bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine and the proximal femur is maintained in pre-, peri-, and postmenopausal women by regular exerise. BMD was measured using dualenergy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Twenty-six Japanese women (mean age 47.8 years) were followed 4–5 years. Twenty-two subjects from volleyball or(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the corelations between the muscle torque of the leg extensors (quadriceps femoris) and leg flexors (Hamstrings) and the bone mineral density (BMD) of the proximal femur and lumbar spine. To investigate the decline in BMD of proximal femur and lumbar spine, we examined the relative importance of muscle torque, age,(More)
Lesions in acute herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) have been reported to show decreased uptake of Tc-99m ethyl cysteinate dimer (ECD). A patient with acute HSE displaying a lesion in the left temporal lobe was evaluated by means of Tc-99m ECD single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Dynamic SPECT images indicated regionally increased uptake of(More)
A 28-year-old woman suffered severe back pain and headache during exercising on three occasions during the prior two-month period. On admission, the physical examination revealed symptoms of meningeal irritation, nuchal rigidity, severe headache, continuous nausea, and vomiting. Cerebral computed tomography of the intracranial subarachnoidal space revealed(More)
