OBJECTIVE In the past decade, hereditary forms of motor neuron disease (spinal muscular atrophy and/or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) are increasingly identified. As advanced genetic testing is performed, molecular diagnosis can be obtained. Identifying new gene mutations can lead to further understanding of disease. METHODS AND RESULTS We report a single(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe an underrecognized side effect of high-dose IV immunoglobulin (IVIg), hemolytic anemia. BACKGROUND There are no established guidelines on treating patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) who relapse or do not improve after a standard course of treatment (IVIg or plasma exchange). Some centers will opt for a second course of the(More)
Neuropathy as extramuscular manifestation of dermatomyositis (DM) is controversial due to uncommon occurrence, heterogeneity of associated nerve pathology, and lack of unifying pathogenetic mechanism(s). We describe a patient with classic manifestations of DM and extramuscular manifestation of neuropathy. Nerve pathology showed deposits of terminal(More)
POEMS (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal protein, skin changes) is a disorder that mainly affects adults. We report a pediatric patient, initially considered to have Guillain-Barré syndrome, who continued to have progression of neuropathic disease leading to the diagnosis of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. Diagnosis(More)
The synthesis of nanostructured anionic-surfactant-templated mesoporous silica (AMS) recently appeared as a new strategy for the formation of nanostructured silica based materials. This method is based on the use of anionic surfactants together with a co-structure-directing agent (CSDA), mostly a silylated ammonium precursor. The presence of this CSDA is(More)
