We studied medial dorsal superficial peroneal (MDSP) nerves in 52 patients with clinical evidence of mild chronic sensorimotor polyneuropathy and normal sural nerve responses, in order to assess the diagnostic sensitivity and usefulness of MDSP nerve testing in electrodiagnostic practice. To determine the effect of age on MDSP nerve parameters, 98 normal(More)
Transient alterations in polyamine (PA) metabolism, termed the polyamine stress response (PSR), constitute a common cellular response to stressful stimuli. In contrast to the adult brain and liver, the PSR in the adrenal gland and thymus is characterized by a reduction in PA metabolism. The brain PSR undergoes an early postnatal period of(More)
We report three patients with a typical clinical picture of unilateral meralgia paresthetica in whom routine nerve conduction studies were normal. However, cortical somatosensory evoked potentials were absent after lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) stimulation on the affected side. After stimulation of the LFCN in the anterosuperior iliac spine (ASIS)(More)
