OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the pathomechanism underlying the reduction of serum creatinine (Cr) concentrations in spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA). METHODS We evaluated blood chemistries, motor function, and muscle mass measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in male subjects with SBMA (n = 65), amyotrophic lateral(More)
Intramedullary spinal cord hemorrhage (hematomyelia) is rare and usually related to trauma. Spinal vascular malformations such as intramedullary cavernomas and intradural arteriovenous malformations are the most common cause of atraumatic hematomyelia. Other considerations include warfarin or heparin anticoagulation, bleeding disorders, spinal cord tumors,(More)
We retrospectively studied the clinical features and the outcome of first acute symptomatic seizure in elderly. The subjects were 457 patients, who were more than 15 years old, and whose electroencephalograms were available in our hospital. The subjects were divided into two groups, the elderly (236 patients; age more than 60 years, mean age; 73.2±8.2, 105(More)
