BACKGROUND Recently, homocysteine (Hcy), folate, and vitamin B12 have been proposed to have several roles on MS pathogenesis. OBJECTIVE We performed this study to determine the role of serum levels of Hcy, vitamin B12, and folate in patients with relapsing remitting MS (RRMS) and compared them with healthy controls. METHODS We recruited 75 RRMS patients(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most prevalent central nervous system demyelinating disease. There are known risk factors for MS. However, there is uncertainty in its protective factors. Few studies have demonstrated that some chronic infections may have protective effects on this disease. We carried this study to investigate the relation between(More)
Motor neuron diseases have been reported as a rare paraneoplastic syndrome (PNS) of a systemic neoplasm. We present a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in association with neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of stomach, which is the first case of motor neuronopathy with underlying neuroendocrine tumor.

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is a common hereditary neuro-cutaneous disease, with known gene mutations, that mainly involves the skin and nervous system. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an acquired inflammatory disease in which the myelin of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord is damaged. These two disease do not share any apparent pathological(More)
Background: One of the main progressive consequences of optic neuritis is inflammatory axonal loss manifested by Retinal Nerve Fiber layer (RNFL) thinning on Optical Coherence Tomography. We assessed RNFL thickness in the fellow eye in patients with unilateral optic neuritis. Methods: Twenty nine patients with unilateral optic neuritis after three months of(More)
