Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a highly specialized thermogenic tissue and has profound effects on body weight, energy balance, and glucose metabolism. Body temperature regulation depends on the integrated activities of the autonomic nervous system, which is centered predominantly in the hypothalamus. The purpose of this study was to explore the interaction(More)
BACKGROUND there are several variants of Wallenberg's syndrome. Wallenberg's syndrome with proximal quadriparesis has not been reported before. CASE SUMMARY we report a 25-year-old woman presenting with sudden onset of vertigo, hoarseness, dysphagia, right facial numbness, and proximal quadriparesis. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed right(More)
Although carbuncles are commonly seen and may heal on their own or respond well to treatment, in rare conditions, bacteria from carbuncles can spread into the bloodstream and migrate to other areas of the body. Herein, we report on an elderly female who suffered from forehead carbuncle with intractable headache, later confirmed as having subgaleal abscess.(More)
Both diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and fat embolism syndrome could be the cause of altered consciousness in patients who suffered from traffic accident. In some situations, distinguishing DAI from fat embolism syndrome may be difficult because routine brain imaging could not detect the lesions. Susceptibility weighted imaging is sensitive to detect petechial(More)
Nonepileptic seizures are sudden changes in behavior that resemble epileptic seizures but are not associated with the typical neurophysiological changes that characterize epileptic seizures. Cardiovascular disorders may cause loss of consciousness complicated by abnormal movements due to generalized cerebral hypoxia, leading to the initial impression of(More)
BACKGROUND Upper limbs dysmetria caused by spinal cord injury is very rare. We will discuss the associated mechanism in our articles. CASE PRESENTATION A 51-year-old male had sudden onset of weakness, dysmetria over bilateral upper limbs and ataxia after he fell accidentally. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed no specific findings. C-spine(More)
