INTRODUCTION Behçet's disease (BD) is a multisystemic, recurrent, inflammatory disorder. Neurological involvement is well-known but cerebral vasculitis and ischaemic stroke are unusual. CASE DESCRIPTION A 43-year-old male patient presented with acute left hemiparesis, he had recurrent oral aphthae and scrotal ulcerations. Two episodes of transient(More)
INTRODUCTION Treatment of spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage (SICH) is controversial. This study aims to evaluate the outcome and invasiveness of one surgical approach that provides complete evacuation of SICH, the image-guided keyhole evacuation. METHODS The technique was employed in 20 consecutive patients, nine of whom harbored deep(More)
INTRODUCTION Few studies have tested the hypothesis of whether the beneficial effect of Stroke Units (SUs) can be reproduced in routine clinical practice and whether SU are also superior to neurological wards [NWs]. We aimed to compare the outcomes of patients of a newly implemented SU to the outcomes of patients hospitalized in a NW. METHODS We made a(More)
BACKGROUND The diversity of clinical presentation and neuroimaging findings of CADASIL (cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy) from different regions of the world has not yet been studied in depth. Here we investigated the variability of clinical, radiological and genetic data of 48 patients analyzed for(More)
Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the most devastating subtype of stroke (1). One of the causes of late neurological deterioration (LND) in ICH is thought to be perihematomal edema (PHE), which arises early during the course of an acute ICH mostly within the first week after onset (2,3,4,5,6). Herein we report three patients of acute ICH who developed very(More)
Introduction: Epileptic, migrainous, and vascular pathologies may cause transient global amnesia (TGA); however, the mechanism of causation remains unclear. We investigated possible vascular causes of TGA. Methods: We retrospectively evaluated the clinical and radiologic studies of 13 patients with TGA. On admission, patients underwent diffusion-weighted(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The outcome of thrombolysis for early morning and sleep time strokes may be worse because of uncertainty of stroke onset time or differences in logistics. The aim of the study was to analyze if stroke outcome after intravenous thrombolysis differs depending on time of day when the stroke occurs. METHODS The data collected in the(More)
Ad dress for C or res p on den ce/Ya z›fl m a Ad re si: An ah tar ke li m e ler: Frontal, sinus, epidural, aspergillosis, ampiyem ABS TRACT Aspergillosis infection located primarily in the frontal sinus and invading into the dura is rare. A 74-year-old male patient was admitted with headache of 3-month duration that did not respond to analgesics. Cranial(More)
Unilateral pain in the cervical region and limitation of neck movements are nonspecific symptoms frequently encountered in daily medical practice. Vertebral artery dissection is rarely considered as a diagnostic possibility unless brainstem or cerebellar ischemia follows the acute pain. Three cases of vertebral artery dissection (VAD) having the sole(More)
