Pulmonary angiosarcoma is an uncommon vascular and usually secondary tumor. Only a few primary cases of pulmonary angiosarcoma have been described. We report a case of primary pulmonary angiosarcoma in an adult man who presented with hemoptysis. Chest x-ray film and chest CT showed a right para-cardiac opacity associated with diffuse alveolar consolidation(More)
BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has shown significant efficiency in the treatment of several psychiatric disorders. In depressive disorders, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) is the main target for rTMS, but the effects of this stimulation on cognitive functions and their neural correlates are not well known. Previous(More)
BACKGROUND High frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) has shown significant efficiency in the treatment of resistant depression. However in healthy subjects, the effects of rTMS remain unclear. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to determine the impact of 10 sessions of rTMS applied to the(More)
Resistant auditory hallucinations are reported in 25% of schizophrenia cases (Shergill et al., 1998). Recent meta-analyses (Aleman et al., 2007; Freitas et al., 2009) have shown that low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS at 61 Hz) applied to the left temporoparietal cortex (LTPC) half way between T3 and P3 using the 10–20 EEG(More)
BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation has been explored in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder, but with negative or conflicting results. This randomized double-blind study was designed to assess the efficacy of 1-Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation over the presupplementary area. METHODS Forty medication-resistant(More)
A few open-labeled studies have investigated the use of maintenance rTMS to prevent relapse for treatment-resistant depression (TRD) after rTMS treatment. We aim to assess the benefits of maintenance rTMS treatment for TRD patients who respond to rTMS treatment using a randomized, double-blind controlled design. Fifty eight TRD patients received rTMS over(More)
Benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) is a form of focal dystonia, characterized by excessive involuntary closure of the eyelids due to spasms in orbicularis oculi muscles. Its prevalence ranges from 5 to 13 per 100,000 individuals [1]. It preferentially affects people aged 50–70 years [2]. BEB etiology is not well known, although different hypotheses have(More)
INTRODUCTION Carotid body tumors are rare hypervascular lesions arising from neural crest paraganglion cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the imaging features of six patients with carotid body tumors to precise their imaging characteristics in order to find specific signs and elaborate a strategy for diagnosis. RESULTS Imaging(More)
Background: Several studies reported on the effectiveness of 1 Hz repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the temporoparietal cortex (TPC) on refractory auditory hallucinations (AH) in schizophrenia but little is known about the long-term therapeutic effect of this tool. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate rTMS’ impact on auditory(More)
Synovial chondromatosis is a rare metaplasia of the synovium of unknown etiology that may involve occasionally the subacromial bursa. We report a new case diagnosed by ultrasound in a 30-year-old man and we present pathogenetic, diagnostic and therapeutic features of this disease with a literature review.
