Enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces is occasionally encountered during neuroimaging of children. This enlargement is generally regarded as a nonpathologic process that resolves uneventfully. However, there are several genetic disorders in which enlargement of the subarachnoid spaces can be an early sign, or the feature of an associated syndrome, that may(More)
Measurements of the lithium concentration in the occipital pole of the head and calf muscle of nine patients with bipolar disorder in remission were performed using in vivo lithium-7 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (7Li NMR). 7Li NMR measurements were performed on a 1-m-bore, 1.85-T, superconducting magnet supplemented with a multinuclear(More)
Nine children with the "happy puppet" syndrome are presented here and 19 previously reported cases are reviewed. A characteristic psychological profile is suggested by the children's "unfocused" activities and inconsistent responsiveness to their surroundings. Behavioral characteristics are atypical for mental age and do not appear to represent unusual(More)
BACKGROUND Mucopolysaccharidosis VII (MPS VII) is an ultra-rare disease characterised by the deficiency of β-glucuronidase (GUS). Patients' phenotypes vary from severe forms with hydrops fetalis, skeletal dysplasia and mental retardation to milder forms with fewer manifestations and mild skeletal abnormalities. Accurate assessments on the frequency and(More)
Persons with opiate use disorders, especially veterans, have a number of both chronic and acute indicators of risk for suicide, but are not typically screened for suicidal ideation on a routine basis, beyond initial evaluations. One hundred one veterans receiving treatment for opiate dependence at an urban VA medical center were screened for suicidal(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the locations and characterize the types of brain abnormalities noted on brain magnetic resonance imaging in patients with probable and definite neurofibromatosis type 1. Patients with definite neurofibromatosis type 1 (n = 17) were studied when clinically indicated, and patients with probable neurofibromatosis(More)
