Measurements of the cross sectional area of the sciatic nerve are described in a group of 10 patients with genetically confirmed Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A), nine patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and 10 healthy controls using MRI. One mid-thigh of each individual was imaged using a short tau inversion… (More)
For many commentators the defining characteristic of Internet discussion is its facelessness. In the current state of technological play, it is rare to see our on-line interlocutors or to be seen by them: the self is, quite precisely, said. This paper brings together two lines of thought proceeding from this simple observation in order to consider the use… (More)

Methods: Rufiji District in Tanzania was used as a case study. Data on medicines ordered and patients seen were compiled from routine information at… (More)
Central nervous system infratentorial superficial siderosis (iSS) is increasingly detected by blood-sensitive MRI sequences. Despite this, there are no standardized diagnostic criteria, and the clinical-radiological spectrum, causes and optimum investigation strategy are not established. We reviewed clinical and radiological details of patients with iSS… (More)
The authors describe the case of a 32-year-old woman known to have Russell-Silver syndrome who presented with repeated aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Multiple intracranial aneurysms and advanced peripheral vascular disease were demonstrated. The authors postulate a link between these vascular features and the patient's genetic condition.
Imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of dementia. This review covers the imaging features of the most common dementing illnesses: Alzheimer's disease (AD), vascular dementia (VaD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). It describes typical findings on structural neuroimaging and discusses… (More)
We present a patient with a suspected intracerebral malignant lesion admitted with signs and symptoms of an intracerebral mass lesion and managed operatively. Histological diagnosis demonstrated papillary endothelial hyperplasia (Masson's tumour). This highlights the ability of benign reactive processes associated with intracerebral haematoma to clinically… (More)
