Iron deficiency anemia is a rare cause of cerebral sinovenous thrombosis in children. We report three cases of cerebral sinovenous thrombosis and iron deficiency anemia treated at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, between 1998 and 2001. The children were 9, 19, and 27 months old at the time of admission. Hemoglobin levels ranged(More)
Five patients with a continuous band of heterotopic neurons between the lateral ventricles and the cerebral cortex are described. All patients presented with intractable seizures and moderate-to-severe developmental delay. The identification of this anomaly is difficult because of its symmetry and the minimal abnormality of the gyral pattern of the cortex.(More)
There is little longitudinal data examining outcome of pediatric near-drowning. Most literature tracks status 5 years or less post insult, focusing primarily on gross neurologic status as opposed to more subtle neurocognitive deficits. The present case tracks the neuropsychological profile of a child who was submerged for 66 min, the longest time(More)
The effects of local infusion of a 16 mM K+ solution or of a nociceptive stress on the release of somatostatin (SRIF) from the hypothalamus was measured in unanesthetized male rats implanted with a push-pull cannula in the median eminence. Although the baseline secretion rate of SRIF was increased in animals displaying agitation as a result of handling(More)
The MR and CT findings in 12 adolescents with multiple sclerosis were compared with reported findings in adults. The adolescent group showed a more striking female predominance, more severe disease characteristics, and more frequent infratentorial involvement. Cortical atrophy and abnormal iron accumulation in the basal ganglia were uncommon in the(More)
We describe how clauses in resolution programs can be represented and used Without applying substitutions or cons-ing lists of literals. The amount of space required by our representation of a clause is independent of the number of literals in the clause and the depth of function nesting. We introduce the concept of the value of an expression in a binding(More)
A simple, inexpensive method of displaying electroencephalographic (EEG) dipole sources on magnetic resonance images (MRIs) is presented. It consists of measuring the head according to the 10-20 system but instead of placing electrodes, benzonatate capsules (Tessalon Perles) (100 mg) are affixed to the patient's scalp. MRI is obtained with the capsules in(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether pontomedullary corticospinal tract involvement is a common and specific finding of adrenoleukodystrophy on MR images. METHODS MR images of 10 patients with biochemically proved adrenoleukodystrophy who were examined during the last 6 years were reviewed retrospectively to determine the frequency of corticospinal tract(More)
Two female infants with callosal agenesis, infantile spasms, chorioretinal lacunae, optic disc colobomas and cortical heterotopias were diagnosed with Aicardi syndrome. A choroid plexus papilloma was found in one patient, and choroid plexus cysts were found in the other. Choroid plexus lesions are common findings in the Aicardi syndrome and are discussed in(More)
