It has been widely suggested that selenium (Se) deficiency play an important role in the pathophysiology of epilepsy. It has been reported that Se provides protection against the neuronal damage in patients and animals with epilepsy by restoring the antioxidant defense mechanism. The neuroprotective effects of topiramate (TPM) have been reported in several(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in migraine patients with unilateral headache. METHODS A total of 58 patients diagnosed with migraine headache consistently occurring on the same side and 58 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects were evaluated in this cross-sectional study. RNFL thickness was measured using spectral-domain(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To evaluate the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) and to compare the results with those of healthy controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty patients (mean age: 75.02 ± 6.34 years; 23 women) with untreated AD and 40 age-, sex-, and education-matched healthy patients were examined in this(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the main chronic inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system that causes functional disability in young people. The aim of this study was to investigate the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with MS and the relationship between the NLR and the severity of the disease. One hundred and two MS patients(More)
Migraine and asthma are comorbid chronic disorders with episodic attacks thought to involve inflammatory and neurological mechanisms. The objective of the present study is to investigate the relationship of asthma features between the asthma patients with migraine and those without migraine headache. A cross-sectional study was conducted from October 2015(More)
Objective The present study aims to analyze the levels of resistin, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, IL-18, and C-reactive protein (CRP) in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and also investigate a potential relationship between resistin levels and TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-18, and CRP levels in patients with AD.

The aim of this study was to evaluate blink rate (BR), tear tests and corneal parameters by Scheimpflug imaging and also to clarify the associations between the severity of disease and corneal parameters in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Forty patients with PD and 40 healthy subjects were included in this study. All participants underwent a(More)
Cardiac autonomic dysfunction assessed by the presence of arrhythmia, by the methods, such as heart rate variability or blood pressure variability, and by the electrocardiographic abnormalities is common in Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS). The goal of present study was to analyze the P-wave dispersion (PWD), which is the non-invasive marker of atrial(More)
Objective: The aim of this study was to report our experience with Botulinum toxin (BoNT) in the treatment of various neurologic conditions. Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 128 patients who received BoNT in our Neurology clinic during an 11-year period (January 2003 to December 2014). All patients received BoNT type A(More)
Extrapyramidal symptoms (EPSs) include acute dystonia, akathisia, parkinsonism, and tardive dyskinesia. Antipsy-chotic drug-induced EPSs are mostly related to antipsy-chotic drugs that target the dopaminergic system. Atypical antipsychotics cause lower EPSs than typical antipsy-chotics [1]. In Parkinson's disease, the thalamus is a key nucleus in the tremor(More)
