An 11-year-old girl had a painless oculomotor nerve palsy confined to the inferior division. Anti-galactocerebroside and anti-GM1 antibodies were elevated during the acute phase and decreased to normal limits with clinical improvement, suggesting a possible autoimmune basis for this mononeuropathy.
UNLABELLED A case of acute cerebellar ataxia without any prodromal illness showed cerebellar hypoperfusion on 123I-iodoamphetamine single photon emission computed tomography. The symptoms did not resolve spontaneously or with methylprednisolone pulse therapy but disappeared rapidly with intravenous immunoglobulin therapy. CONCLUSION Intravenous… (More)
We report a rare association of juvenile dermatomyositis with subclinical hypothyroidism due to auto-immune thyroiditis. Although the patient had no symptoms of hypothyroidism, thyroid auto-antibodies remained elevated even after disease remission.
A 6-month-old girl developed West syndrome and it remitted in association with valproate-induced hepatic dysfunction. Plasma -alanine elevated after valproate hepatotoxicity, which seemed to be a possible cause of remission. The patient has been seizure-free with normal electroencephalogram for 12 months without any anticonvulsants. Her developmental… (More)
A 15-month-old girl developed frequent seizures at the eruptive stage of exanthema subitum. The eruption persisted for 2 weeks. Serum immunoglobulin G antibody to human herpes virus type 6 (HHV-6) increased markedly. Interleukin-6 was elevated whereas HHV-6 deoxyribonucleic acid was not detected in cerebrospinal fluid. These findings suggest that… (More)
Three-dimensional magnetic resonance (MR) myelography  is a form of MR hydrography which shows free water as high signal intensity and is useful in cases of dorsal dermal sinus to show, non-invasively, communication between the dorsal dermal sinus and the intraspinal space. A 10-month-old girl suffered meningitis with persistent fever, increased white… (More)
UNLABELLED A low dose of oral etidronate (3.7 mg kg(-1) d(-1)) was administered for immobilization hypercalcaemia associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome in a 12-y-old boy. There was a slight increase in osteoblastic bone formation reflected by alkaline phosphatase and in particular bone-specific alkaline phosphatase during the treatment and serum calcium… (More)
