Dengue is an acute mosquito-borne infection caused by dengue viruses from the genus flavivirus. Neurologic complications have been attributed chiefly to metabolic alterations and to focal and sometimes massive intracranial haemorrhages, but anecdotal cases and limited case series have indicated the possibility of viral CNS and skeletal muscle invasion(More)
Neuroplasticity (also referred to as brain plasticity, cortical plasticity or cortical re-mapping) is the changing of neurons, organization of their networks, and their function via new experiences. The brain consists of nerve cells or neurons and glial cells which are interconnected, and learning may happen through changing of the strength of the(More)
Rheumatiod arthritis (RA) is a multisystem connective tissue disorder. The predominant presentation is polyarticular, symmetric peripheral arthritis with relative sparing of axial skeleton. Inflammatory synovitis is the pathologic hallmark. Extra-articular manifestations of RA can involve several other organ systems and amongst them pulmonary manifestations(More)
Sporadic inclusion body myositis (s-IBM) is an acquired inflammatory myopathy. Clinical presentation is variable. The usual presentation is progressive weakness and atrophy of the arms and leg muscles, especially of the quadriceps femoris which is invariably affected. It is classified under inflammatory myopathies, along with polymyositis and(More)
Hypocalcemia due to hypoparathyroidism may manifest as serious neurologic symptoms such as seizures, movement disorders, or raised intracranial pressure. Several patients were observed to have these dangerous neurologic complications even without subtle signs of hypocalcemia like tetany, chvostek's sign or carpopedal spasms. We present a case of recurrent(More)
Short-latency SEPs were monitored in eight patients undergoing hemodialysis for end-stage renal disease. The peak latencies of EP,N13, and N20 were significantly delayed compared with those of the control group. Because the interpeak latency of N13 - N20 (central conduction time) was not significantly prolonged, there could be no possible subclinical(More)
