A case of hepatic encephalopathy with increased cerebral blood flow in single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and abnormalities upon magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is reported. SPECT showed increased blood flow exceeding 70 ml/100 g/min in the cerebellum, basal ganglia and cerebral cortex, with hyperammonemia and abnormal(More)
We report a case of complete atrioventricular (AV) block in a 40-year-old patient with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). While he was bed-ridden and required mechanical ventilation, his cardiac involvement was mild. He had the deletion of exon 45-52 in the dystrophin gene. He underwent transient complete AV block and came to require pacemaker implantation(More)
A total of 151 cases of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), comprising 89 cases treated with MND-19 (Inosiplex) and 62 untreated cases, were retrospectively investigated as to background characteristics, survival rate and clinical course in order to compare the findings in the 2 groups of cases. The survival rate for the cases treated with MND-19(More)
Carmofur, a derivative of 5-fluorouracil, has recently been noted to have an infrequent but serious association with leukoencephalopathy. To our knowledge, there has been no report of early MRI findings in this leukoencephalopathy. We describe a case in which diffuse high signal intensity of the entire cerebral white matter, including the corpus callosum,(More)
We reported a case of 89-year-old woman showing rhythmic skeletal myoclonus mainly on the right upper limb. This myoclonus appeared five days after the cerebral infarction. It was seen constantly both at rest and in posture, and decreased during voluntary movement. When the patient was under emotional stress, it spread to the submandibular, neck and trunks(More)
A 12-year-old boy developed occasional attacks of oculogyric crisis after physical exercises or when tired. Following the initial symptom, progressive Parkinsonian features such as bradykinesia, muscular rigidity, hand tremors in posture, mild dysarthria and disorder of postural reflexes developed. There was no marked diurnal fluctuation o symptoms. Serum(More)
Generalized komuragaeri disease (Satoyoshi disease) is a rare disorder of unknown etiology, characterized by painful muscle spasms, alopecia, diarrhea and various endocrine disorders. We administered glucocorticoid to a girl with this disease, resulting in a marked improvement of all clinical features. The patient was a 15-year-old girl. Since the age of 13(More)
To elucidate the mechanisms of the beneficial hemodynamic action of nifedipine in congestive heart failure, the systolic and diastolic hemodynamic parameters were evaluated for 30 min after sublingual administration of 20 mg of nifedipine in 12 dogs with acute mitral regurgitation (group 1) and in 5 dogs without mitral regurgitation (group 2, sham operation(More)
