We report a biopsy-proven case of neurolymphomatosis (NL) presenting with sensory motor axonal polyneuropathy, polymyositis, and cerebral involvement. Ours is the second reported case of NL caused by natural killer-cell lymphoma defined by morphology and immunophenotyping. For 3 months, the patient developed stocking-glove distribution of hypesthesia,(More)
This study was planned to investigate the dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system in fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) using sympathetic skin responses (SSR) and RR interval analysis. Thirty-four FM and 22 healthy subjects were recruited for the study. They were questioned for symptoms that are characteristic for FM and medical outcome study short form-36(More)
A relationship between hormones and seizures has been reported in animals and humans. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the association between serum levels of prolactin, nesfatin-1 and ghrelin measured different times after a seizure or non-epileptic event and compared with controls. The study included a total of 70 subjects, and of(More)
Several studies based on psychometric tests have determined an impairment of cognitive functions in patients with androgen deficiency. However, little is known about event-related potentials (ERPs) alterations in male hypogonadism. We investigated alterations of ERP in male hypogonadism before and 3 months after gonadotropin treatment. ERPs were elicited in(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate cutaneous-silent-period (CSP) parameters in patients with restless legs syndrome (RLS) and examine the effects of treatment on CSP which, to our knowledge, have not been investigated till date. METHODS A total of 25 patients with RLS and 25 healthy volunteers were studied. CSP latency and duration in the(More)
Cerebrovascular blood flow in absence seizures and flow patterns during the ictal period have not been thoroughly investigated. We aimed to evaluate cerebral blood flow changes in typical juvenile absence seizures during the ictal and postictal phases. Seizures were recorded in three patients (mean age: 21 ± 1 years) with multiple daily typical absence(More)
We report the first case of Isaacs' syndrome in which an inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy was documented histologically. For 9 months, the patient developed slowly progressive weakness, muscle spasms and stiffness, fasciculations, and myokymia in the arms, which were unmodified by sleep. Nerve conduction studies showed multifocal motor conduction(More)
Maternal use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) during pregnancy has been associated with an increased risk of congenital abnormalities in the fetus. This is partly attributable to AEDs. We aimed to analyse seizure frequency and the rate and type of any congenital malformation related to pregnancies in women with epilepsy in this prospective study. Eighty four(More)
The electrophysiological results in 51 patients with diabetes mellitus type II were compared with those in 30 age and sex matched healthy control subjects. Peripheral and cortical latencies of median and tibial somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP), bilateral I-III and I-V interpeak latencies (IPL) of brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP), bilateral(More)
A patient with mirror movements associated with cervical meningocele has been presented in this report. The MRI showed normal cerebrum and cervical meningocele, and an anomaly at the posterior to the cervical spinal cord-medulla junction. Unilateral transcranial magnetic stimulation evoked bilateral responses at similar latencies on the thenar muscles which(More)
