PURPOSE To report the ocular and genetic findings of a Japanese family with Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome associated with a novel Pro79Thr mutation in the FKHL7 gene. METHODS Observational case series. Genomic DNA of patients from a family with Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome was extracted from leukocytes, and exons of the FKHL7 gene were amplified by polymerase(More)
A 47-year-old male receiving anticoagulant therapy for thrombophlebitis in the left leg for several years presented with mild left hemiparesis and ipsilateral hypesthesia. The cause of the thrombophlebitis was still unknown. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed subacute thrombosis of both the superior sagittal sinus (SSS) and a cortical vein in the right(More)
A 61-year-old female with a past history of gastric cancer presented with altered mental status, a few seizures, and low-grade fever. Lumbar puncture revealed elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure, lymphocytic pleocytosis, elevated protein level, remarkably decreased glucose level, and presence of cryptococcal antigen. Cryptococcus neoformans was(More)
A 59-year-old male presented with a left organized subdural hematoma. The hematoma appeared as a homogeneous low density area on brain computed tomography and as hyperintense and isointense area on both fluid-attenuated inversion recovery and T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Echo-planar diffusion-weighted MR imaging showed a crescent(More)
A 67-year-old female with a history of hypertension and cerebral infarction presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) (Hunt and Kosnik grade 4). Brain computed tomography (CT) revealed a clot dominantly on the right (Fisher's classification Group 4). Cerebral angiography showed funnel-shaped widenings at the origins of the bilateral posterior(More)
A 59-year-old diabetic male presented with transient motor aphasia and monoparesis of the right upper limb. Brain CT scan showed a low density area in the left subdural space with a mild midline shift. Magnetic resonance (MR) T2-weighted and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imagings revealed homogenous hyperintensity with a hypointense web-like(More)
A 72-year-old man with a history of hypertension had a left cerebellar infarction and followed by a right cerebellar infarction within about one and a half months after the initial stroke. Brain magnetic resonance images(MRI) showed infarctions in both middle cerebellar peduncles and in the mid-portion of lower pons. Right veretebral artery(VA) terminated(More)
Five cases of traumatic subdural hematomas in the subacute stage (from 7 to 20 days after head injury) were treated in one male and four females, aged from 63 to 82 years, with evacuation via craniotomy in three and aspiration via burr hole surgery in two. All hematomas were evaluated by T1-, T2-, and diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging, and(More)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the functional changes following the orthodontic treatment of anterior reversed occlusion in children. Samples consist of 94 children with anterior reversed occlusion as the experimental group and 34 children with normal incisor occlusion as the control group. Experimental samples were classified into 3 groups(More)
The diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging characteristics of chronic subdural hematoma and the correlation between hematoma liquidity and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) were investigated in 26 consecutive patients, 16 males and 10 females aged 42 to 92 years (mean +/- SD 73.3 +/- 13.1 years), with 31 chronic subdural hematomas.
