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 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 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 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 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 47-year-old man with a history of thrombophlebitis of his left leg for several years presented with a mild left hemiparesis and ipsilateral hypesthesia. Magnetic resonance imaging showed subacute thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus and a cortical vein of the right cerebral hemisphere. A linear hyperintense area was found in the white matter of the(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)
We report a patient with cerebellar meningo-encephalitis by Epstein-Barr virus(EBV) in which the responsible lesions were detected by Gd-enhanced MRI. A 61-year-old woman with a history of liver cirrhosis and diabetes mellitus presented with cerebellar signs such as ataxia of the trunk, bilateral upper and lower extremities and slurred speech two weeks(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. The(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)
