PURPOSE Our purpose was to report the patterns of injury observed in five patients who suffered brain damage consequent to neonatal hypoglycemia. METHODS The imaging studies and clinical records of five patients with brain damage caused by neonatal hypoglycemia were reviewed retrospectively. Patterns of injury were compared with those described in the(More)
UNLABELLED Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is sometimes diagnosed based on a positive antimitochondrial antibody in the appropriate clinical setting without a liver biopsy. Although a liver biopsy can assess the extent of liver fibrosis and provide prognostic information, serum fibrosis markers avoid biopsy complications and sampling error and provide(More)
Intracranial resistance and compliance were assessed in the cerebrospinal fluid system of rat, dog, and man by means of low-volume, short-duration infusions of artificial CSF into the subarachnoid space. A family of pressure/time response curves was obtained for each species: at low flow rates, steady-state pressure elevations were associated with normal(More)
Arachnoid villi in the intracranial dural sinuses constitute the principal sites for absorption of proteins and particulates from the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) system. Although arachnoid villi in the rat are morphologically less complex than those found in other mammals, their resistance to CSF outflow, as assessed by a graded series of contstant flow(More)
Unilateral cerebrovascular occlusion was produced in heparinized rats within 60 seconds after an injection of sodium arachidonate (in doses exceeding 0.45 milligram per kilogram) into the carotid artery. Electroencephalographic activity over the affected cerebral hemisphere was suppressed, and cerebral blood flow decreased by half. Microscopic examination(More)

Cerebral palsy refers to a neurologic disorder of motor skills that is static in nature and is the result of injury to the brain before its development is complete. Many neurodegenerative or metabolic disorders have a slow rate of progression and can be misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy. Diseases that have been misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy are presented here(More)
Unilateral cerebrovascular occlusion was produced in heparinized rats within seconds after injection of microgram quantities of sodium arachidonate into the internal carotid artery. Electroencephalographic activity over the affected cerebral hemisphere became attenuated, and cerebral blood flow decreased by half. A neurologic syndrome, including ipsilateral(More)
A cluster of eight patients in two adjacent hospital wards acquired acute diarrhoea within a period of 11 days. All their stool samples contained Clostridium difficile toxin and C. difficile was isolated in every case. Three patients had rectal biopsy findings compatible with pseudomembranous colitis (PMC). All the patients responded to treatment with oral(More)
Somesthetic information from lower extremities is processed by cerebral cortex after traversing the sensory pathways of peripheral nerve, spinal cord, brain-stem and thalamus. Clinical utility of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) during human development requires systematic analysis of normative data acquired during various stages of body growth and(More)
