Distal anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) aneurysms are rare and most cases have been treated surgically by clipping, wrapping or trapping. We recently treated this 20-year-old male patient by an endovascular technique. At first, he was treated by intra-aneurysmal embolisation with parent artery preservation. But he presented with rerupture 1 month(More)
PURPOSE The neurological outcome of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) may depend on multiple factors, including age, symptom duration, cord compression ratio, cervical curvature, canal stenosis, and factors related to magnetic resonance (MR) signal intensity (SI). Each factor may act independently or interactively with others. To clarify the factors in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Malformations of cerebral cortical development are common anomalies of the brain, typically causing developmental delay or seizures that are classically thought to begin in childhood. We present clinical and MR imaging data of 16 patients with cortical malformations in whom evidence of neurologic dysfunction was first noted in(More)
We document the MRI features in six patients aged 5-14 years with acute encephalitis following measles. The diagnosis was made on a characteristic morbiliform rash and detection of specific IgM and IgG antibodies. The symptoms of encephalitis occurred 1-11 days after the appearance of the rash. All patients underwent MRI within 1-4 days of the onset of(More)
15-Deoxy-(Delta12,14)-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)) is a naturally occurring cyclopentenone metabolite of prostaglandin D(2) (PGD(2)) and is known as a specific potent ligand for the peroxisome proliferators activator receptor-gamma (PPARgamma). 15d-PGJ(2) inhibits cell growth and induces apoptosis in a number of different cancer cells. However, the(More)
BACKGROUND Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) may increase the risk of spinal cord injury (SCI) with various neurological deficits after minor trauma. However, few studies have investigated the influence of OPLL on neurological outcome after acute cord injury. We examined whether severe spinal canal stenosis caused by OPLL affects(More)
The aim of this study was to reveal the clinical and encephalographic (EEG) features of infantile spasms (IS) with malformations of cortical development (MCDs). The clinical features, EEG findings, neuroimaging studies and outcomes of various therapeutic modalities for 27 patients with IS and MCDs were reviewed. Background activities of EEG on the MCDs,(More)
Patients with intramedullary signal intensity (SI) changes have a poor prognosis after surgical decompression in cervical compressive myelopathy (CCM); however, some patients show no clear relationship between the SI and postsurgical prognosis. This discrepancy may be because no comprehensive and proper quantitative evaluation exists to assess SI on(More)
Bifid inferior nasal turbinates-two inferior turbinates with a single root observed in the nasal cavity-are an extremely rare anatomical variation, especially when they are observed bilaterally and exist with other variations. We report a case of bilateral bifid inferior nasal turbinates with bilateral secondary middle turbinates. We discuss the findings of(More)
