We describe an unusual case of cerebral intravascular lymphomatosis wherein the patient presented with multiple embolic strokes predominantly in the posterior circulation. Using this case as an illustration, we review the literature of this malignancy, which consists of extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. For patients (More)
Invasive mold infection (IMI) remains a major cause of mortality in high-risk hematological patients. The aim of this multicenter retrospective, observational study was to evaluate antifungal combination therapy (ACT) for proven and probable IMI in hematological patients. We analyzed 61 consecutive cases of proven (n=25) and probable (n=36) IMI treated with(More)
A nitrifying consortium was kinetically, stoichiometrically and molecularly characterized via the in situ pulse respirometric method and pyrosequencing analysis before and after the addition of m-cresol (25 mg C L−1) in a sequencing batch reactor (SBR). Five important kinetic and stoichiometric parameters were determined: the maximum oxygen uptake rate, the(More)
BACKGROUND Simultaneous presentation of arteriovenous malformation (AVM) and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is rarely reported in the literature and needs to be differentiated from "angioglioma", a highly vascular glioma and other differential diagnosis such as hypervascular glioblastoma. Incorporating critical features of both, malignant glioma and AVM,(More)
Identification and localization of epileptogenic zone (EZ) is vital in patients with medically-intractable focal epilepsy, who may be candidates for potentially curative resective epilepsy surgery. Presence of a lesion on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) influences both diagnostic classification and selection for surgery. However, the implications for(More)
PURPOSE Segmentation and diffusion-tensor-imaging of the corpus callosum (CC) have been linked to gait impairment. However, such measurements are impracticable in clinical routine. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between simple linear measurements of CC thickness with gait. METHODS Two hundred and seventy-two community-dwelling(More)
Background: Food intake fluctuates throughout the menstrual cycle ; it is greater during the early follicular and luteal phases than in the late follicular (periovulatory) phase. Ovarian steroids can influence brain areas that process food-related information, but the specific contribution of individual hormones and the importance of the prandial state(More)
