Unilateral atrophy of a cerebellar hemisphere occurring as a sequela of ischemic or destructive injury of the contralateral cerebral hemisphere is uncommon in children. We reviewed our experience with this phenomenon and found an unexpected association with extreme prematurity and a complicated perinatal course with a poor subsequent neurologic outcome. We(More)
The possible existence of asymmetry in the control of ovulation by the medial amygdala was explored. Unilateral lesions of the medial amygdala were performed on each day of the estrous cycle. The estral index diminished in almost all animals with a lesion in the right side of medial amygdala. Lesions of the right medial amygdala, when performed on(More)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) overlaps major depression (MD) clinically, but differs with respect to treatment response and some biological markers. Sleep disturbances represent core features of PTSD and are also common in MD. Rapid eye movement sleep (REM) has been postulated to be involved in the pathophysiology of PTSD, and REM abnormalities(More)
We describe 10 infants with developmental delay and congenital cerebral anomalies who were found to have had in utero exposure to vasoactive drugs. Nine infants had ophthalmological abnormalities; these included strabismus, nystagmus, and/or hypoplastic optic discs. Six mothers used cocaine, one used cocaine and heroin, one used only heroin, one used(More)
BACKGROUND Aortic intramural hematoma (IMH) evolves very dynamically in the short-term to regression, dissection, or aortic rupture. The aim of the present study was to assess the long-term clinical and morphological evolution of medically treated IMH. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty of 68 consecutive patients with aortic IMH monitored clinically and by imaging(More)
PURPOSE To analyze and discuss the MR and CT features of Chiari type III malformations. PATIENTS AND METHOD MR and CT studies in nine neonates born at term with Chiari type III malformations were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS High cervical/low occipital encephaloceles were present in all cases. Hypoplasia of the low and midline aspects of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the population pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationships of racemic ibuprofen administered in suspension or as effervescent granules with the aim of exploring the effect of formulation on the relevant pharmacodynamic parameters. DESIGN The pharmacokinetic model was developed from a randomised, cross-over bioequivalence study of(More)
Spinal cord cavitation is a frequent finding in optic neuromyelitis (Devic's syndrome) (DS) but it is also, although rarely, observed in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The objective of our study was to compare the MRI characteristics of the syringomyelic cavities in 6 patients with DS and 3 patients with MS. All the patients with DS had a relapsing(More)
