BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Though routine neuroimaging is usually normal in essential tremor (ET) there is clinical evidence of widespread involvement of central nervous system. This study aimed at determining morphological changes in brain of patients with ET using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) analysis and also compare the subtypes of ET. METHODS Clinical(More)
INTRODUCTION Essential tremor (ET) is a common movement disorder with motor and non-motor symptoms. We aimed to investigate the neurodegenerative changes in the brain white matter of patients with ET using Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI). METHODS Clinical and MRI data from 20 patients (5 women and 15 men; age-38.2 ± 16.5 yrs) with ET and 17 controls (3(More)
Isolated sulfite oxidase deficiency is a rare neurometabolic disorder that closely mimics hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy both clinically and radiologically. Phenotypic and imaging observations in 2 children (aged 14 months and 8 years) with this disease are described. Both had profound mental retardation, microcephaly, spastic quadriparesis, and(More)
Brains reveal amplified plasticity as they recover from an injury. We aimed to define time dependent plasticity changes in patients recovering from mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Twenty-five subjects with mild head injury were longitudinally evaluated within 36 h, 3 and 6 months using resting state functional connectivity (RSFC). Region of interest(More)
We describe two children from a consanguineous family who manifested mega-corpus callosum, polymicrogyria, and psychomotor retardation. These patients also exhibited the brain anomalies of pontine hypoplasia and an abnormal cerebellar vermis. Our report confirms the genetic nature of megalencephaly-polymicrogyria-mega-corpus callosum syndrome, suggests a(More)
BACKGROUND The occurrence of epilepsy is higher among elderly patients. The clinical manifestations of seizures, causes of epilepsy, and choice of anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) are different in elderly people with epilepsy compared to the young. AIM To evaluate the imaging (CT/MRI) observations in elderly patients manifesting with new-onset seizures. (More)
BACKGROUND While oxidative stress (OS) may be one of the crucial factors determining the initiation and progression of Parkinson's disease (PD), its correlation with gray matter (GM) atrophy is not known. AIMS To determine the GM volume (GMV) changes using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and correlation with OS marker serum malondialdehyde (MDA) in PD. (More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the pattern of muscle involvement using MRI findings and correlate with functional as well as muscle strength measurements. Fifty genetically confirmed DMD children with a mean age of 7.6 ± 2.8 (4-15 years) underwent muscle MRI and qualitative assessment was done for muscle changes using Mercuri staging for(More)
Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) affects a range of cognitive functions and musical abilities. We report a 16-year-old boy diagnosed with drug-resistant right-medial TLE. He is a professional musician, trained in Carnatic classical music. Clinical, electrophysiological, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography evaluation(More)
The clinical and MR imaging features of neurosyphilis are highly varied. In this study, we describe the spectrum of the imaging findings in patients with neurosyphilis. The MR imaging observations of 35 patients diagnosed to have neurosyphilis on the basis of cerebrospinal fluid reactive for the Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test were reviewed. All(More)
