A 13-year-old girl with nephrotic syndrome (NS) developed acute leucoencephalopathy during combination therapy with cyclosporin A (CyA) and prednisolone (PSL). The patient had a generalized motor seizure followed by coma at 19 days after CyA administration. Magnetic resonance scanning performed on the 1st hospital day revealed white matter lesions in the(More)
We present the case of a 26 year-old man who developed normally until he began having difficulty walking at age 12. He subsequently became unable to stand at 15 years old and exhibited mental regression and generalized tonic convulsions by age 20. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed incomplete myelination of cerebral white matter, which resembled that of(More)
Pallister-Killian syndrome (PKS) is a disorder caused by a mosaic tetrasomy of chromosome 12p, which manifests with dysmorphism, intellectual disabilities, auditory disturbance, and epilepsy. Here, we describe the findings of brain magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in two patients with PKS. One patient, a 43-year-old man, showed multiple lesions with high(More)
We reported a 36-year-old man, who suffered from cluster headache (CH) associated with hemicrania continua (HC). The continuous, dull or pressure-type headache appeared on the same side of the CH during the third month of a prolonged cluster period, and fluctuated in the severity of pain. This headache was aggravated when the CH was ameliorated by the(More)
We report the autopsy case of a 40-year-old woman with severe intellectual and motor disabilities, who showed calcification in the cerebellum and pons but not in the basal ganglia on CT scan, and died of intracranial hemorrhage due to intractable hypertension. At autopsy, numerous calcium deposits were noted in the cerebellar cortex, the dentate nucleus,(More)
We report on three patients with xeroderma pigmentosum group A (XPA) who showed laryngeal stridor in their 20s. The stridor appeared on feeding and emotional excitation, was exaggerated during respiratory infection and was life-threatening on some occasions. Adduction of the vocal cords during inspiration, observed by laryngoscopy, confirmed laryngeal(More)
We report the case of a 2-year-old boy who experienced total asphyxia at 4 months of age, and suffered abnormalities at specific phases of the respiratory cycle. The patient was bedridden due to severe tetraplegia and showed little response to external stimuli. He has been tube-fed since the initial asphyxia and a tracheotomy was performed after recurrent(More)
We report here a 25-year-old girl with Friedreich's ataxia (FA) who showed slowly progressive ataxia, deep sensory disturbance and loss of large myelinated fiber in the sural nerve. There was no evidence of cerebellar atrophy or abnormal values of vitamin E, albumin, CK, and gamma-globulin in the serum. Except for mild mental retardation, her clinical and(More)

Children with acute encephalopathy (AEP) or acute encephalitis(AE) show variable findings in the clinical manifestations and on the neuroimaging. Patients with AE present variable symptoms: disturbance of consciousness, seizure, ataxia, dystonia, abnormal behavior, apnea, and others. This variability depends on the location of lesions including basal(More)
