The relationship between the effect of aldose reductase inhibitors (ARIs) on the activation of the polyol pathway and on diabetic neuropathy has not been fully established. To address this issue, we investigated the effect of epalrestat (150 mg/day), an ARI, on erythrocyte sorbitol levels as an index of polyol activation and on nerve function test results(More)
A 50-year-old female presented with right painful abducens nerve palsy persisting for 4 months and mild panhypopituitarism with diabetes insipidus for 6 months. T(1)-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the sellar region showed a homogeneously enhanced mass lesion in the right cavernous sinus which seemed to extend from the swollen pituitary gland.(More)
A case of ACTH deficiency and partial GH deficiency associated with neurohypophyseal ectopy is described. A 42-year-old woman of short stature was admitted for hypoglycemic coma. The patient had hypocortisolemia, an increase in urinary 17-OHCS after consecutive injections of ACTH-Z, and a low plasma ACTH level which showed no response to(More)
