A 75-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of sudden onset of paresis in her left arm and face. She had untreated hypertension and hyperlipidemia. When she came back home after playing with children in the park, she felt weakness in her left hand. On admission, physical examination revealed that her blood pressure was very high (200/102 mmHg).(More)
A 47-case-year old male was admitted to our hospital because of high fever and general fatigue. He had no immune deficiency, and had no other disease in his past history. On admission, the white blood cell count and C-reacted protein were severely elevated (18,700/microliter, 27.7 mg/dl, respectively) and abdominal CT revealed multiple low density, From(More)
Positional distribution of fatty acids in triacyl-sn-glycerols of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-rich tuna orbital and bonito head oils has been reanalyzed by a method based on chromatographic separation of isomeric and enantiomeric monoacyl-sn-glycerol (MAG) derivatives. When boric acid thinlayer chromatography (TLC) was used for separation of 1(3)- and 2-MAG(More)
In order to investigate the cerebral blood flow objectively, the easy Z score imaging system (eZIS), was developed, and has been applied in clinical practice. SPECT with 99mTc-ethyl cysteinate dimer (99mTc-ECD) was performed, and the images were analyzed using the SPM97 and the eZIS Ver. 2 to investigate cerebral blood flow in patients with two types of(More)
We present a case with walking-induced equinovarus caused by dystonic contraction of the left ankle. This abnormal motor behavior occurred only when the patient walked, more specifically when the left leg was at the end of the swing phase. Surface electromyography confirmed continuous abnormal discharges in the left gastrocnemius muscles during the swing(More)
Sirs: Bickerstaff ’s brainstem encephalitis (BBE) is characterized by acute ophthalmoplegia and cerebellar ataxia preceded by infection. While generally considered a variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome, Fisher syndrome (FS) is believed by some neurologists to involve the brainstem [1]. Owing to the apparent similarities in the clinical presentations of FS(More)
Due to the wide spread use of smart phones and PCs, people can access information everywhere in everyday life. However, there are very few methods to access content within an bathing environment. Some people carry smart phones into a bathroom but it is unnatural to be holding a device during bathing. This paper proposes an interactive water surface display(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed the symmetry and pointedness of the posterior segment of highly myopic eyes. METHODS We studied 234 eyes of 117 patients with bilateral high myopia (refractive error ≤-8.00 diopters [D]) and 40 eyes of 20 patients with emmetropia (refractive error between -1.0 and +1.0 D). Volume renderings of high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR)(More)
Information is becoming accessible everywhere in everyday life due of the spread of smart phones and portable personal computers; however are very few methods in accessing contents in a bathing environment. Sometimes smart phones can be carried into a bathroom but it is unnatural to be holding a device at during bathing, so a suitable technique for(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate tri-ethylene glycol mono-methacrylate (TEGMA) in terms of dermatological allergic reaction using a Guinea Pig Maximization Test. Skin reaction was evaluated according to the criteria of International Contact Dermatitis Research Group. TEGMA, as a constituent in new primers, has been reported to contribute to a priming(More)
