[A case of Marchiafava-Bignami disease that responded to high-dose intravenous corticosteroid administration].
TLDR
It is suggested that corticosteroid therapy has beneficial effects for Marchiafava-Bignami disease by means of its the anti-edema effect and by normalizing blood-brain barrier. Expand
MRI of adrenoleukodystrophy involving predominantly the cerebellum and brain stem
TLDR
The patient was a 30-year-old man with no family history of adrenoleukodystrophy, whose neurological symptoms were progessive cerebellar ataxia and spastic paraparesis, and his neurological symptoms improved slightly after steroid administration. Expand
[Complex visual hallucinations in the hemianopic field following an ischemic lesion of the occipitotemporal base--confirmation of the lesion by MRI and speculations on the pathophysiology].
TLDR
Not only pure release phenomena but irritative phenomena in the association visual cortex may be involved in the complex visual hallucinations in the hemianopic field, as Lance and Kölmel suspected. Expand
Serial MRI and SPECT in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A case report
TLDR
Changes in the MRI and SPECT findings may reflect progressive degeneration of the upper motor neurons in ALS. Expand
[Efficacy of TRH-T for spinocerebellar degeneration--the relation between clinical features and effect of TRH therapy].
TLDR
Although mild or moderate improvement of the balance function during the course of TRH therapy was seen in 16 of the 23 patients, patients with cerebellar forms (CCA and H-CCA) improved significantly as compared to patients with MSA, and may be recommended for support of ADL in patients with the Cerebellar form of SCD.

Serial MR findings of chronic idiopathic ataxic neuropathy
TLDR
MR abnormalities in a 70-year-old woman with chronic idiopathic ataxic neuropathy may reflect the degeneration of the posterior column of the spinal cord subsequent to sensory ganglionic neuropathy. Expand
[A case of toxoplasmic chorioretinitis and meningoencephalitis in an immunocompetent adult].
TLDR
Toxoplasmosis associated with neurological complications as an opportunistic infection is a serious problem in the immunocompromised hosts, especially in AIDS, but this infection is rare in immunologically normal adults. Expand
[HTLV-I associated myelopathy (HAM) with cerebellar atrophy presenting a down-beat nystagmus].
TLDR
The presence of nystagmus and prominent cerebellar signs plus the CT and MRI findings strongly suggest that the lesions in HAM are not limited to the spinal cord but extend to the brainstem and cerebellum. Expand
[Periodic alternating nystagmus in familial congenital cerebellar ataxia].
TLDR
The mechanism of PAN could be attributed to the periodic hyperfunction of vestibular nuclei caused by reduced suppression from cerebellar uvula and nodulus causing vestibulo-ocular reflexes, changes of direction and prolonged cycle of PAN. Expand
Opsoclonus showing only during eye closure in hereditary cerebellar ataxia.
TLDR
Subarachnoid haemorrhage may be yet another serious adverse effect of the abuse ofMDMA and adds to the increasing number of reports of serious morbidity and mortality associated with this drug. Expand
