To determine the involvement of the corticospinal tract in Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), we examined central motor conduction in patients with GBS-like symptoms and hyperreflexia using a magnetic stimulation technique. The subjects were 3 patients who exhibited ascending muscle weakness 2-4 weeks after preceding infections. Deep tendon reflexes were(More)
OBJECTIVES Several serum antibodies against gangliosides are diagnostically important, particularly in Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS), and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN). Although hyperreflexia is an atypical symptom in these disorders, it has been found in some patients with GBS, MFS, and MMN. The aim of the study was to(More)
A 67-year-old diabetic man suffered from right neovascular glaucoma following the ipsilateral cataract surgery. Three years later, he underwent left cataract surgery and again developed left neovascular glaucoma after the operation. Fluorescein angiogram showed a marked delay in retinal circulation. Moreover, severe stenosis of bilateral carotid origins and(More)
A 19-year-old man with cervical myeloradiculopathy is reported. He was admitted to our hospital because of acute muscle weakness of upper limbs, which developed two weeks after respiratory tract infection. Neurologic examination revealed prominent muscular weakness of upper limbs. Deep tendon reflexes showed hyporeflexia in upper limbs and hyperreflexia in(More)
Bronchogenic cysts arise from abnormal budding of the ventral diverticulum of the foregut or tracheobronchial tree during embryogenesis, are the most common cystic masses in the mediastinum, and are generally asymptomatic. A spontaneous regression in a mediastinal bronchogenic cyst (MBC) with pneumonia is rare. A 30-year-old male had a tumor shadow in the(More)
PURPOSE To develop a new treatment in glaucoma-filtering surgery using combined treatment with electroporation and the antiproliferative drug bleomycin. METHODS Pigmented rabbits were treated with both bleomycin (10 micrograms/ml) and localized electric pulses (EP) using a special probe (5 V/cm, 100 msec, 8 pulses) (n = 10; group A). After EP treatment,(More)
