The aim of this study was to evaluate the thyroid function alterations in a group of epileptic children taking antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Patients demographic data and the free throxine (fT4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels at the beginning of the treatment and at the third, sixth and ninth months of AED treatment were recorded(More)
In this study, technetium-99 ((99)Tc)-hexamethylpropyleneamine-oxine single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) was performed on 13 children with classic lissencephaly (nine with epileptic seizures, four without seizures). Focal or multifocal hypoperfusions were observed in 12 patients. The hypoperfused areas observed on SPECT scanning did not(More)
In this investigation of congenital muscular torticollis, 311 infants treated consecutively for congenital torticollis over an 8-year period (1995-2003) at the Pediatric Neurology Clinic of Istanbul Medical Faculty, Istanbul University, Turkey were reviewed retrospectively. The clinical presentation, associated abnormalities, treatment, and outcomes of the(More)
Cranial computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or both, of 143 patients with West syndrome were retrospectively reviewed. Twenty-four children had normal CT scans. The most striking findings on pathologic scans were cerebral atrophy, ventricular enlargement, and encephalomalacia. Of 78 children who underwent MRI, 14 had normal scans.(More)
The authors studied 20 patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) to investigate the correlations between MRI, magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), and clinical status. MRI findings did not correlate with clinical status. By contrast, all patients had reductions in N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) and increase in myoinositol (mI) (p < 0.01), and NAA(More)
Although primary varicella-associated central nervous system complications and herpes zoster ophthalmicus with delayed hemiplegia are well known, and chickenpox is a common infection, cerebral vasculopathy associated with chickenpox has only been described recently. We report the case of an 18-month-old girl who developed a right hemiplegia 10 days after(More)
A 10-year-old male presented with vision loss and behavioral changes. He had midpoint pupils with no reaction to light and normal funduscopic examination. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging revealed bilateral cortical lesions at parieto-occipital lobes. Elevated measles antibody titers in the cerebrospinal fluid confirmed the diagnosis of subacute(More)
We report a 16-month-old girl who presented with global developmental delay and hearing loss. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a pattern that could be interpreted as a "new leukoencephalopathy." Etiologic investigations revealed a positive polymerase chain reaction for cytomegalovirus DNA using her stored Guthrie card, indicating a congenital(More)
A retrospective study is presented of the clinical features and outcome of late onset haemorrhagic disease due to vitamin K deficiency in 11 babies who were admitted to the emergency or child neurology unit during a 4-year period (January 1994-December 1997). The disease occurred in infants between 30 and 119 days of age (mean: 56+/-24 days). None of them(More)
Neuroblastoma, a common tumor of neural crest origin, demonstrates an extremely variable clinical presentation and behavior. Paraspinal tumors may occur anywhere along the spinal column where they may invade the intervertebral foramina and produce cord compression. Cervical involvement may produce Horner's syndrome. Opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome is also a(More)
