Auditory brain stem responses were recorded in 20 patients with anorexia nervosa and 10 normal control subjects. Twenty patients were studied during two phases of illness, 1) anorexia nervosa group with under weight (U-AN group), and 2) anorexia nervosa group with recovered normal weight (N-AN group). Absolute latencies, interwave latencies, absolute(More)
A 39-year-old male with psychogenic alopecia universalis is reported to be a rare adult case. There are two characteristic features which are the reactive depressive state and hair loss on the head, eyebrows, axilla and genital organ. Discussions on the psychogenesis of these findings are as follows: The first is that the psychic escape from social life may(More)
Endometriosis is prevalent among women of reproductive age, and is most commonly found in the gynecologic organs themselves and the surrounding pelvic peritoneum. Endometriosis of the appendix, however, is rare. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult and a definitive diagnosis is usually established following histopathological examination of the appendix. We(More)
Here is a case of long-term cortical blindness after a head trauma. Its etiology is ascribed to the cerebral vascular occlusion caused by the head trauma. From the findings of both a computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance image (MRI), the lesions of our case are assumed to be in the bilateral areas 17 (Brodmann), some part of the bilateral(More)
We have reported a 38-year-old female who did not show clinical seizures during continuous spikes in the left occipital area over a period of 18 years. As to the neurological findings, visual disturbance, optic nerve atrophy and right hemianopsia were almost always present. The low density area distributing from the left occipital area to the left temporal(More)
Auditory brain stem responses were recorded in 10 eating disorder patients and 10 normal control subjects. Absolute latencies, interwave latencies, absolute amplitudes, and amplitude ratios were investigated. A nonsignificant difference was found between the eating disorder group and the normal control group as far as the absolute latencies and interwave(More)
The authors describe a variant of alpha rhythm, which is remarkable because of its great amplitude (200-300 microV). It is observed quite exceptionally in children and adolescents with a severe encephalopathy of either ante- or perinatal etiology. They suggest that the surplus amplitude of this alpha rhythm could depend upon a deafferentation of the(More)
