The specific clinical and radiological features of encephalitis/encephalopathy are described and it is pointed out that the condition is not always mild and may be severe. Expand
ZNF512B gene is a prognostic factor in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
This study is the first, as per knowledge, to indicate that the association between the new susceptibility gene for ALS and its pathway could be identified and the influence of the new SNP in actual ALS patients was revealed. Expand
Utility of cystatin C for renal function in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Cystatin C (CysC), which is unaffected by muscle mass, is potentially an ideal biomarker of nephrotoxicity in ALS; however, its utility requires validation. Expand
Creatinine/cystatin C ratio as a surrogate marker of residual muscle mass in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
The creatinine/cystatin C (Cr/CysC) ratio is studied as a useful surrogate marker of residual muscle mass in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Expand
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome: A review with emphasis on neuroimaging characteristics
This algorithm may provide a better understanding of the characteristics that compose PRES and bring us one step closer to the standardization of PRES diagnosis, helping clinicians evaluate individual features while also considering competing differential diagnoses. Expand
Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration associated with an onconeural antibody against creatine kinase, brain-type
It is demonstrated that anti-CKB antibody may be added to the list of PCD-related autoantibodies and may be useful for diagnosis ofPCD. Expand
Prevalence of elevated serum anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antibody titers in patients presenting exclusively with psychiatric symptoms: a comparative follow-up study
Serum anti-NMDA receptor antibody titers may be associated with psychiatric conditions, however, an association with specific psychiatric symptoms was not observed in the present study. Expand
The Criteria for Diagnosing Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis May Be Unsuitable for Clinical Use
It is suggested that some of motor neuron disease cases who only exhibit LMN signs can be diagnosed as ALS, and the revised El Escorial Criteria for the Diagnosis of ALS may be unsuitable for clinical use. Expand
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) reactivation during fingolimod treatment for relapsing and remitting multiple sclerosis.
A 38-year-old female with relapsing and remitting multiple sclerosis who developed reactivation of hepatitis C virus (HCV) during administration of fingolimod for 16 months is reported, the first case report of HCV reappearance. Expand
Importance of correctly interpreting magnetic resonance imaging to diagnose posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome associated with HELLP syndrome: a case report
MRI findings were useful for the prompt diagnosis of PRES, characterized by hypersignals in FLAIR and ADC, but not in DWI, but these lesions were not recognized in diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). Expand
