Acrocallosal Syndrome: Autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by hypogenesis or agenesis of CORPUS CALLOSUM. Clinical features include MENTAL RETARDATION; CRANIOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES; digital malformations, and growth retardation.Agenesis of Corpus Callosum: Birth defect that results in a partial or complete absence of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. It may be isolated or a part of a syndrome (e.g., AICARDI'S SYNDROME; ACROCALLOSAL SYNDROME; ANDERMANN SYNDROME; and HOLOPROSENCEPHALY). Clinical manifestations include neuromotor skill impairment and INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY of variable severity.Abnormalities, MultipleSyndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Intellectual Disability: Subnormal intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period. This has multiple potential etiologies, including genetic defects and perinatal insults. Intelligence quotient (IQ) scores are commonly used to determine whether an individual has an intellectual disability. IQ scores between 70 and 79 are in the borderline range. Scores below 67 are in the disabled range. (from Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p28)Optic Atrophy: Atrophy of the optic disk which may be congenital or acquired. This condition indicates a deficiency in the number of nerve fibers which arise in the RETINA and converge to form the OPTIC DISK; OPTIC NERVE; OPTIC CHIASM; and optic tracts. GLAUCOMA; ISCHEMIA; inflammation, a chronic elevation of intracranial pressure, toxins, optic nerve compression, and inherited conditions (see OPTIC ATROPHIES, HEREDITARY) are relatively common causes of this condition.Gait Disorders, Neurologic: Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.Gait: Manner or style of walking.Optic Atrophy, Autosomal Dominant: Dominant optic atrophy is a hereditary optic neuropathy causing decreased visual acuity, color vision deficits, a centrocecal scotoma, and optic nerve pallor (Hum. Genet. 1998; 102: 79-86). Mutations leading to this condition have been mapped to the OPA1 gene at chromosome 3q28-q29. OPA1 codes for a dynamin-related GTPase that localizes to mitochondria.Diagnostic Errors: Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.Gait Apraxia: Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.Optic Atrophies, Hereditary: Hereditary conditions that feature progressive visual loss in association with optic atrophy. Relatively common forms include autosomal dominant optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHY, AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT) and Leber hereditary optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHY, HEREDITARY, LEBER).Cellulitis: An acute, diffuse, and suppurative inflammation of loose connective tissue, particularly the deep subcutaneous tissues, and sometimes muscle, which is most commonly seen as a result of infection of a wound, ulcer, or other skin lesions.Blood Vessels: Any of the tubular vessels conveying the blood (arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and veins).Edema: Abnormal fluid accumulation in TISSUES or body cavities. Most cases of edema are present under the SKIN in SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE.Pulmonary Edema: Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.Brain Edema: Increased intracellular or extracellular fluid in brain tissue. Cytotoxic brain edema (swelling due to increased intracellular fluid) is indicative of a disturbance in cell metabolism, and is commonly associated with hypoxic or ischemic injuries (see HYPOXIA, BRAIN). An increase in extracellular fluid may be caused by increased brain capillary permeability (vasogenic edema), an osmotic gradient, local blockages in interstitial fluid pathways, or by obstruction of CSF flow (e.g., obstructive HYDROCEPHALUS). (From Childs Nerv Syst 1992 Sep; 8(6):301-6)Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Polydactyly: A congenital anomaly of the hand or foot, marked by the presence of supernumerary digits.Pallister-Hall Syndrome: A pleiotropic disorder of human development that comprises hypothalamic HAMARTOMA; central and postaxial POLYDACTYLY; bifid EPIGLOTTIS; ANAL ATRESIA; and renal and other abnormalities. This disorder is associated with FRAMESHIFT MUTATIONS in the GLI3 gene which encodes the GLI3 protein, a KRUPPEL-LIKE TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS family member.Orofaciodigital Syndromes: Two syndromes of oral, facial, and digital malformations. Type I (Papillon-Leage and Psaume syndrome, Gorlin-Psaume syndrome) is inherited as an X-linked dominant trait and is found only in females and XXY males. Type II (Mohr syndrome) is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.Hypothalamic Diseases: Neoplastic, inflammatory, infectious, and other diseases of the hypothalamus. Clinical manifestations include appetite disorders; AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; SLEEP DISORDERS; behavioral symptoms related to dysfunction of the LIMBIC SYSTEM; and neuroendocrine disorders.Hamartoma: A focal malformation resembling a neoplasm, composed of an overgrowth of mature cells and tissues that normally occur in the affected area.Hernia, Umbilical: A HERNIA due to an imperfect closure or weakness of the umbilical ring. It appears as a skin-covered protrusion at the UMBILICUS during crying, coughing, or straining. The hernia generally consists of OMENTUM or SMALL INTESTINE. The vast majority of umbilical hernias are congenital but can be acquired due to severe abdominal distention.Rectus Abdominis: A long flat muscle that extends along the whole length of both sides of the abdomen. It flexes the vertebral column, particularly the lumbar portion; it also tenses the anterior abdominal wall and assists in compressing the abdominal contents. It is frequently the site of hematomas. In reconstructive surgery it is often used for the creation of myocutaneous flaps. (From Gray's Anatomy, 30th American ed, p491)Surgical Mesh: Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.Hernia: Protrusion of tissue, structure, or part of an organ through the bone, muscular tissue, or the membrane by which it is normally contained. Hernia may involve tissues such as the ABDOMINAL WALL or the respiratory DIAPHRAGM. Hernias may be internal, external, congenital, or acquired.Hernia, Inguinal: An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.Surgery, Veterinary: A board-certified specialty of VETERINARY MEDICINE, requiring at least four years of special education, training, and practice of veterinary surgery after graduation from veterinary school. In the written, oral, and practical examinations candidates may choose either large or small animal surgery. (From AVMA Directory, 43d ed, p278)Hernia, Diaphragmatic: Protrusion of abdominal structures into the THORAX as a result of congenital or traumatic defects in the respiratory DIAPHRAGM.Antibodies: Immunoglobulin molecules having a specific amino acid sequence by virtue of which they interact only with the ANTIGEN (or a very similar shape) that induced their synthesis in cells of the lymphoid series (especially PLASMA CELLS).Antibody Specificity: The property of antibodies which enables them to react with some ANTIGENIC DETERMINANTS and not with others. Specificity is dependent on chemical composition, physical forces, and molecular structure at the binding site.Antibodies, Monoclonal: Antibodies produced by a single clone of cells.Antibodies, Viral: Immunoglobulins produced in response to VIRAL ANTIGENS.Rabbits: The species Oryctolagus cuniculus, in the family Leporidae, order LAGOMORPHA.

Infants are born with intact spinal cords, cerebellums, and brainstems, but lack formation of neural structures above this level. The skull is only partially formed but the eyes are usually normal. This condition may be associated with folate deficiency. Affected infants are only capable of primitive (brain stem) reflexes and usually do not survive for more than two weeks. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p247)Spinal Dysraphism: Congenital defects of closure of one or more vertebral arches, which may be associated with malformations of the spinal cord, nerve roots, congenital fibrous bands, lipomas, and congenital cysts. These malformations range from mild (e.g., SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA) to severe, including rachischisis where there is complete failure of neural tube and spinal cord fusion, resulting in exposure of the spinal cord at the surface. Spinal dysraphism includes all forms of spina bifida. The open form is called SPINA BIFIDA CYSTICA and the closed form is SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)Spina Bifida Occulta: A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)Neural Tube Defects: Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation.

Lumen within the neural tube is called neural canal which gives rise to the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain. For malformation of the neural tube, see NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.Corpus Callosum: Broad plate of dense myelinated fibers that reciprocally interconnect regions of the cortex in all lobes with corresponding regions of the opposite hemisphere. The corpus callosum is located deep in the longitudinal fissure.Aicardi Syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by partial or complete absence of the CORPUS CALLOSUM, resulting in infantile spasms, MENTAL RETARDATION, and lesions of the RETINA or OPTIC NERVE.Communication Aids for Disabled: Equipment that provides mentally or physically disabled persons with a means of communication.

Hydrolethalus syndrome (less commonly referred to as Salonen-Herva-Norio syndrome) is a rare genetic disorder that causes improper fetal development, resulting in birth defects and often stillbirth. It is associated with HYLS1 mutations. Hydrolethalus syndrome can cause heart and brain defects, a cleft lip or palate, an abnormally shaped nose or jaw, or incomplete lung development. These defects are typically serious enough to cause stillbirth or death within a few days of birth. Hydrolethalus can be readily diagnosed during pregnancy through the use of ultrasound, which will often reveal hydrocephaly and an abnormal structure of the brain. No cure or treatment option for individuals with Hydrolethalus syndrome currently exist. E-Notes: Hydrolethalus Syndrome "Orphanet: Hydrolethalus". 2017-09-10. Retrieved 2017-09-10 ...

Following unilateral lesion of the primary motor cortex, the reorganization of callosal projections from the intact hemisphere to the ipsilesional premotor cortex (PM) was investigated in 7 adult macaque monkeys, in absence of treatment (control; n = 4) or treated with function blocking antibodies against the neurite growth inhibitory protein Nogo-A (n = 3). After functional recovery, though incomplete, the tracer biotinylated dextran amine (BDA) was injected in the ipsilesional PM. Retrogradely labelled neurons were plotted in the intact hemisphere and their number was normalized with respect to the volume of the core of BDA injection sites. (1) The callosal projections to PM in the controls originate mainly from homotypic PM areas and, but to a somewhat lesser extent, from the mesial cortex (cingulate and supplementary motor areas). (2) In the lesioned anti-Nogo-A antibody-treated monkeys, the normalized number of callosal retrogradely labelled neurons was up to several folds higher than in ...

Horizontal and vertical line bisection was studied in 129 children and adolescents between 8 and 19 years of age, one group (n=32) of typically developing controls and one group (n=97) with spina bifida (SBM), a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with dysmorphology of the corpus callosum, posterior cortex, and midbrain. For each participant, structural brain MRIs were analyzed qualitatively to identify beaking of the midbrain tectum and corpus callosum agenesis and hypoplasia and quantitatively by segmentation and volumetric analyses of regional cortical white and gray matter. Each group showed the line length effect, whereby greater estimation errors are made with longer lines. The group with SBM differed from controls in terms of both accuracy and variability of line bisection. Children with SBM showed pseudoneglect, attending more than controls to left hemispace. The extent of rightward bisection bias was unrelated to right posterior brain volumes, although an intact corpus callosum ...
Rehabilitative treatment in stroke survivors has shown to be effective in improving functional outcome and reducing dependency. Plasticity of the central nervous system, along with coping strategies and adaptations, seems to play a key role in functional recovery. Some data support the hypothesis that drug which improve dopaminergic, serotoninergic and noradrenergic transmission in the central nervous system could improve recovery in stroke patients. In this population, antidepressants as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) are associated to better outcomes, as evidenced by small clinical trials. However, since depression is a common consequence of stroke, observed improvements could be biased by the action of these drugs on depressive symptoms, thus improving participation in rehabilitative treatment.. The hypothesis of this study is that SSRI could improve functional outcome in stroke survivors not only because of their action on depressive symptoms, but mainly because of a direct ...
left hemispheres of the brain together. Disorders of the corpus callosum, or DCCs, are "conditions in which the corpus callosum does not develop in a typical manner." This important brain superhighway is usually formed by 12 to 16 weeks after conception. However, there are some people born without a corpus callosum at all, this is otherwise known as agenesis of the corpus callosum. My 4 year old son has hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, which means that his corpus callosum is thin and therefore may be less efficient. A few other included disorders are partial agenesis, as in partially absent, and dysgenesis, or malformation, of the corpus callosum.. DCCs, like Autism, are a spectrum disorder, where there is no textbook answer to how happy or healthy someone will be just based off of diagnosis. Many parents are finding out during pregnancy due to the advancement in technology and equipment. Unfortunately, they are not always getting the best advice or support, due to the lack of knowledge on ...

Hydrolethalus syndrome is a severe complex malformation syndrome, which leads to death of the fetus in most cases in utero, or immediately after the birth. The causative gene, still waiting to be cloned, is located at chromosome 11q23-q25. The characteristic malformations are external asymmetric hydrocephalus, a keyhole-shaped foramen magnum and polydactyly in all extremities. Other common findings are poorly developed mandible, small, often bifid nose and hypoplastic eyes. Atrioventricular communis defect of the heart is frequently found as well as abnormal lobation of the lungs. Careful clinical examination provides the diagnosis of the hydrolethalus syndrome distinct from Meckels syndrome. Prenatal diagnosis by ultrasound can be established already at 12th week of gestation.

The agenesis of the corpus callosum and lipoma is a very rare association. We report the case of an 18-years old young patient with no history who was admitted to the emergency department for generalized seizures and atypical headache, the onset of symptoms dated back to two months, neurological examination was normal. The brain computed tomography scan and the magnetic resonance showed the lipoma and the partial agenesis of the corpus callosum.
Purpose To refine methods that assess structural brain abnormalities and calculate intracranial volumes in fetuses with congenital heart diseases (CHD) using in utero MR (iuMR) imaging. Our secondary objective was to assess the prevalence of brain abnormalities in this high-risk cohort and compare the brain volumes with normative values. Methods We performed iuMR on 16 pregnant women carrying a fetus with CHD and gestational age ≥ 28-week gestation and no brain abnormality on ultrasonography. All cases had fetal echocardiography by a pediatric cardiologist. Structural brain abnormalities on iuMR were recorded. Intracranial volumes were made from 3D FIESTA acquisitions following manual segmentation and the use of 3D Slicer software and were compared with normal fetuses. Z scores were calculated, and regression analyses were performed to look for differences between the normal and CHD fetuses. Results Successful 2D and 3D volume imaging was obtained in all 16 cases within a 30-min scan. Despite ...
Shapiro syndrome is an extremely rare disorder consisting of paroxysmal hypothermia (due to hypothalamic dysfunction of thermoregulation), hyperhydrosis (sweating), and agenesis of the corpus callosum with onset typically on adulthood. The disease affects about 50 people worldwide. The duration and frequency of the episodes vary from person to person, with some episodes lasting hours to weeks and occurring from hours to years. Very little is known about the disease due to the small number of people affected.

Hamzeh et al (2016) reported a family with two brothers affected with Chudley McCullough Syndrome. The two children were born to healthy consanguineous Yemeni parents. Both had bilateral severe sensorineural hearing loss and had cochlear implants placed in their right ears. Both had moderate speech delay and mild developmental delay. They had hyperextensible elbow and knee joints. Brain CT in the older brother revealed posterior third ventricular cystic lesion, suggestive of an arachnoid cyst, along with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. In the younger brother, CT brain showed the presence of a large posterior third ventricular arachnoid cyst extending to the left of the midline, compressing the left hemisphere and lateral ventricles. Partial agenesis of the corpus callosum was also seen. There was a positive family history of hearing loss and speech delay in the family, with the two of the parents maternal cousins being affected. Molecular analysis identified a novel homozygous mutation ...
MRI pituitary showed partial agenesis of the corpus callosum with absence of splenium and posterior body. The pituitary gland is of normal size. An incidental CT abdomen and pelvis done 3 weeks later for symptoms suggestive of bowel obstruction revealed no pathology in the adrenals.. This may be a case of idiopathic adrenocorticotropin deficiency. Patients were typically over 40 years, hypogonadism may be present and there is absence of structural pituitary defects except for an empty sella1. It can also be associated with a transient growth hormone deficiency6. The partial agenesis of the corpus callosum is likely to be an incidental finding.. Some studies have shown increased biochemical adrenal insufficiency and prevalence of adrenal antibodies in patients with type 1 diabetes2,3whereas others did not show significant increase in prevalence compared with control subjects4,5. Testing for anti-adrenal antibodies would be necessary to completely rule out coexisting primary adrenal ...
The Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) program was created and funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) in 1987 to demonstrate the benefits of a coordinated system of neurotrauma and rehabilitation care and conduct innovative research on all aspects of care for those who sustain traumatic brain injuries. Each Center systematically collects important data about each individual who meets criteria for inclusion in the TBI National Database and sends this information to the TBI National Data Center at KMRREC. The Centers are currently located at 16 sites throughout the United States that provide comprehensive systems of brain injury care to individuals who sustain a traumatic brain injury, from acute care through community re-entry. The mission of the TBIMS is to improve the lives of persons who experience traumatic brain injury, their families and communities by creating and disseminating new knowledge about the course, treatment and outcomes relating to
Brett is one of triplet boys born in 2008 six weeks premature.. At 7-months-old, he was hospitalized with an epileptic seizure disorder - infantile spasms, and diagnosed with a rare birth defect, partial agenesis of the corpus callosum (P-ACC), which is an abnormality in the formation of the brain.. At 14-months-old, Brett was also diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy.. Brett works hard every day to develop abilities we take for granted.. Brett is able to sit for very short periods and cannot yet stand, walk or speak. Despite all he has been through he is a very smart, happy and patient boy. He loves school and playing with his brothers. He adores Elmo, Spiderman and music..

1. Nine men aged 20-33 years with essential hypertension measured their own blood pressure at home, lying and standing, three times daily, under conditions of everyday living. The last 14 days readings (eighty-four observations) from control and treatment periods of at least 4 weeks duration were used to calculate mean pressures.. 2. In eight patients, propranolol (40 mg thrice daily with meals) significantly lowered mean blood pressure (diastolic + ⅓[systolic - diastolic]) but methyclothiazide (5 mg with breakfast) did not. In five subjects, prindolol (5 mg thrice daily with meals) significantly lowered mean blood pressure but methyclothiazide (5 mg with breakfast) did not.. 3. In six subjects there was no significant difference between mean blood pressure when taking propranolol doses 120 mg with breakfast, 60 mg with breakfast and with the evening meal, and 40 mg with each meal. In five subjects there was no significant difference between mean blood pressure when taking metoprolol ...

One final note: formation of the corpus callosum is a dramatic example of a process that is susceptible to developmental variation. What I mean is this: when patients inherit a mutation that results in callosal agenesis, this phenotype occurs in some patients but not all. This is true even in genetically identical people, like monozygotic twins or triplets (or in lines of genetically identical mice). Though the corpus callosum contains millions of nerve fibres, the initial events that establish it involve very small numbers of cells. These cells, which are located at the medial edge of each cerebral hemisphere, must contact each other to enable the fusion of the two hemispheres, forming a tiny bridge through which the first callosal fibres can cross. Once these are across, the rest seem able to follow easily. Because this event involves very few cells at a specific time in development, it is susceptible to random "noise" - fluctuations in the precise amounts of various proteins in the cells, for ...
Vrushali Angadi, PhD, CCC-SLP, University of Kentucky. Changes to the anatomy and physiology of the aerodigestive tract and larynx secondary to head and neck cancer and its treatments present special challenges for the rehabilitation of swallowing and voice. Both surgery and radiation therapy may alter the strength, range of motion and function of the oral cavity, tongue, pharynx, larynx and esophagus. Salivary function may also be altered. These changes, alone or in combination, have deleterious effects on communication (voice) and swallowing.

I am a speech-language pathologist working with a first-grader with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. He speaks in complete sentences and produces most sounds correctly. However, I have just begun working on his prosody. In our first session addressing voicing issues, he was unable to imitate/approximate exaggerated high and low pitch. His mother reports that he does not hum or sing tunes but he does make voices when playing independently with action figures. I have searched our ASHA professional website but did not find any therapy techniques or suggestions. Do you have any resources that might help me?. Response by JoAnne Tully CCC-SLP (2009). I dont know of any articles or discussions that have directly talked about prosody in children with DCC. I do know, however, that a lot of children with DCC have some degree of apraxia, and prosody disorders often accompany apraxia. The Apraxia-Kids website has a good article by Shelley Velleman about prosody. The link to that article is ...

Methods: We studied 41 patients with CM and epilepsy, and the patients were divided according to the age at onset of epilepsy into two groups: one group of 15 patients with very early onset before age 3 months, and the other group of 26 patients with onset at 3 months or later. Statistical relationship was examined between the types of dysplastic lesions demonstrated by MRI and the age at onset of epilepsy. The effects of the onset age and the features of CM ...
The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in cerebral hemodynamics in young patients with uncomplicated hypertension before and after effective antihypertensive treatment with a beta-blocker drug. Changes in mean flow velocity in the middle cerebral artery from normal condition to hypercapnia were evaluated by means of a transcranial Doppler in 42 hypertensive patients and 21 healthy subjects comparable for age and sex distribution. We obtained hypercapnia with breath-holding and evaluated cerebrovascular reactivity with the breath-holding index (BHI). After a baseline evaluation (time 0), patients were randomly assigned to a placebo (group 1) or atenolol (group 2) therapy. The evaluation was repeated after 30 (time 1) and 60 (time 2) days of treatment. Before treatment, hypertensive patients had significantly lower BHI values (0.96 +/- 0.1 group 1 and 0.85 +/- 0.3 group 2) than controls (1.69 +/- 0.4) (P , 0.0001). During treatment, mean blood pressure significantly decreased in group 2 ...

In our lab we are using a combination of biochemical, cell biological and genetic approaches in the nematode C. elegans to investigate the fundamental and conserved molecular mechanisms underlying centriole assembly and function. In previous work we have taken advantage of the availability of data from genome-wide RNAi-based screens to define the molecular requirements for centriole assembly. The six-protein molecular pathway we identified has since been found to be conserved from ciliates to vertebrates, and is thought to form the core of the centriole assembly machinery in all eukaryotes. We further identified the hydrolethalus syndrome protein HYLS-1 as a core centriolar protein that is incorporated into centrioles during their assembly to confer on them the ability to initiate cilia. The single amino acid missense mutation associated with hydrolethalus syndrome impairs HYLS-1 function in ciliogenesis, identifying this disorder as a severe (perinatal lethal) ciliopathy ...
The corpus callosum is a thick band of nerve fibers that is located at the center of the brain underneath the cerebrum and divides the brain into left and right hemispheres. It allows both sides of the brain to communicate by transferring sensory, cognitive, and motor information between the two hemispheres. The corpus callosum is also involved with eye movement and maintaining the balance of attention and arousal. It changes structurally throughout ones life especially during childhood and adolescence. ...

Symptoms of the following disorders can be similar to those of Pallister-Hall syndrome. Comparisons may be useful for a differential diagnosis:. There are a number of related disorders characterized by mutations in the GLI3 gene. This group of disorders includes Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome, Pallister-Hall syndrome, postaxial polydactyly type A, preaxial polydactyly type IV, oral-facial-digital syndrome, and acrocallosal syndrome. These disorders occur due to different mutations of the GLI3 gene (allelic disorders) and share some similar characteristics. Despite similarities, these disorders are considered distinct clinical entities.. Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS) is a rare inherited disorder characterized by physical abnormalities affecting the fingers and toes (digits) and the head and facial area. Characteristic digital features may include extra fingers and/or toes, webbing and/or fusion of the fingers and/or toes, and/or additional abnormalities. Craniofacial features ...
This severe disease is most often associated with midline defects: mental retardation with head malformations (microcephaly; cranial asymmetry; arhinencephaly; holoprosencephaly; cerebellar malformations; corpus callosum agenesis; neural tube defects; anencephaly; spinal dysraphism; seizures; sloping forehead; wide sagittal suture and fontanels; cebocephaly; premaxillary agenesis; scalp defects; dysplastic low-set ears; microphthalmia; hypertelorism or hypotelorism; coloboma; retinal dysplasia orbital; cyclopia; choanal agenesis; cleft lip or palate) and skeleton anomalies (polydactyly of the fingers and toes, ectrodactyly, valgus deformity, spina bifida, hyperconvex narrow fingernails) are also observed.

Smith Lemli Opitz syndrome (SLOS) is a 46,XY disorder of sex development, included in the subgroup of disorders in androgene synthesis. The disease is caused by mutations of 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase (DHCR7) gene, conducting to deficient synthesis of the correspondent enzyme and of cholesterol, with important role in embryogenesis, adrenal and gonadal steroidogenesis. Clinical manifestations includ facial dysmorphism, syndactyly, ambiguous external genitalia and visceral malformations.. We present the case of an infant born by cesarean section for fetal suffering (Apgar score 8/1′ 8/5′), with multiple malformations (dysmorphic face, polydactyly, syndactyly, hypospadias, cryptorchidism) detected already at birth. Investigations diagnosed small atrial septal defect and corpus callosum agenesis was suspected. The clinical examination at 4 months of age showed growth failure, dysmorphic face, bilateral ptosis and epicantus, generalized muscle hypotony, asymmetrical polydactyly (complete on ...
This condition occurs when the callosal fibers may have started to grow, but are unable to cross between the hemispheres. The fibers grow toward the back of the same hemisphere where they began. These fibers form what are called Bundles of Probst. Some smaller connections between the hemispheres develop in most individuals with ACC. These are the anterior commissure, posterior commissure, and hippocampal commissure. However, each of these is at least 40,000 times smaller than the corpus callosum. Thus, they cannot compensate completely for the absence of the corpus callosum. ...

A child with Meningomyelocele usually is operated on within two to three days of birth. This prevents infections and helps save the spinal cord from more damage.. A child with Meningocele usually has it treated with surgery, and more often than not, the child is not paralyzed. Most children with this condition grow up fine, but they should be checked by a doctor because they could have other serious problems, too.. A child with OSD should see a surgeon. Most experts think that surgery is needed early to keep nerves and the brain from becoming more damaged as the child grows.. Spina Bifida Occulta usually does not need to be treated. . ...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the antihypertensive agent(s) more likely to mitigate an exaggerated rise in exercise blood pressure (BP) in hypertensive patients. BACKGROUND: An exaggerated rise in exercise BP is associated with increased cardiovascular risk. There are no recommendations for treating such response. METHODS: Participants were hypertensive men (n = 2,318; age 60 +/- 10 years), undergoing a routine exercise test at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Washington, DC. Antihypertensive therapy included angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (n = 437), calcium-channel blockers (n = 223), diuretics (n = 226), and combinations (n = 1,442), beta-blockers alone (n = 201) or in combination with other antihypertensive agents (n = 467), and none (n = 208). Exercise BP, heart rate (HR) and rate-pressure product (RPP) at maximal and submaximal workloads were assessed. RESULTS: After adjusting for covariates, patients treated with beta-blockers or beta-blocker-based ...

The effect of electrical field stimulation (1, 2, 5, 10 Hz for a total of 480 pulses at 15-minute intervals) on the release of 3H-norepinephrine from the superfused portal vein of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) or Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) of various ages was studied. The ages of the animals were (in weeks) 5-6 (prehypertensive), 8-10 (young hypertensives), 16-18 (older hypertensives), and 28 (mature hypertensives). There was no difference in the release of 3H-norepinephrine or developed tension of the portal vein to any frequency of field stimulation of SHR or WKY at 5-6 weeks of age. However, there was a significantly greater release of 3H-norepinephrine and developed tension of veins of SHR in response to low (1 or 2 Hz) but not high frequencies (5 or 10 Hz) at 8-10, 16-18, and 28 weeks of age. Vessels from hypertensive animals also developed greater resting tension and spontaneous activity, which was reduced to that of WKY in the presence of an alpha-adrenergic antagonist. The alpha 2 ...
METHODS AND RESULTS The study was carried out in 796 young hypertensive patients (592 men) who had never been treated who took part in the HARVEST trial. The diagnosis of stage I hypertension was made on the basis of six office BP measurements. Subjects underwent noninvasive 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring, 24-hour urine collection for catecholamine assessment, and echocardiography (n = 457). They were classified as exercisers if they reported at least one session of aerobic sports per week and as nonexercisers if they did not engage regularly in sports activities. Age (P , .0001), body mass index (P = .002), 24-hour heart rate (P , .0001), alcohol intake (P = .02), smoking (P = .02), and norepinephrine output (P = .04) were lower in the active (n = 153) than the inactive (n = 439) men. Physically active men exhibited a lower 24-hour and daytime diastolic BP than the inactive men, while there were no group differences in office BP or in nighttime diastolic BP and in ambulatory systolic BP. The ...
DISCUSSION. To investigate whether retinal influences on callosal topography are mediated by NMDARs, we studied the topography of callosal linkages in adult rats that had been injected with the NMDAR blocker MK-801 during the P4-P6 critical period. We expected that blockade of NMDARs during this critical period would lead to the development of mirror-symmetric callosal linkages, thus replicating the effect of removing retinal input at P4 (Olavarría and Hiroi, 2003). Instead, we found that pharmacological blockade of NMDARs from P4-P6 did not induce obvious abnormalities in the topography of callosal linkages: callosal linkages were non-mirror symmetric, as in control rats. These results provide evidence that the influences that the eyes exert on callosal topography during the P4-P6 critical period do not opérate through NMDAR-mediated processes. In contrast, we found that interfering with NMDAR function either through MK801-induced blockade of NMDARs starting at P6 or neonatal enucleation ...

A number of studies have investigated NPC migration in the presence of EFs, termed galvanotaxis (galvanotaxis) in vitro (Babona-Pilipos et al., 2011, 2015, 2018). In this study, we investigated the effects of biphasic charge-balanced electrical stimulation for galvanotaxis of transplanted NPCs in vivo in the mouse brain. We found that transplanted NPCs had a propensity to migrate laterally along the corpus callosum under baseline conditions and established that endogenous electric potential differences exist along the corpus callosum (more negative laterally compared to medially). This endogenous EF is consistent with the default migration pathway of transplanted NPCs revealing that the corpus callosum is an endogenous migratory pathways that utilizes EFs as a guidance cue in the brain (Cao et al., 2013; Feng et al., 2017). Further, we determined that an applied EF (3-d paradigm) was able to enhance the cathodal distance of cell migration on the corpus callosum, while longer stimulation (6-d ...

Agenesis of the corpus callosum can occur isolated or as part of a complex congenital syndrome. Patients with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum may present with severe intellectual disability, although a proportion of affected individuals develop normal intelligence. However, even in patients with no apparent deficits, subtle neuropsychological alterations may occur as the cognitive demand increases with age. Hence, patients with this deffect require a strict follow-up during their postnatal life. Thus, physicians require a better knowledge of the cognitive features of agenesis of the corpus callosum to improve their approach to this cerebral malformation. Here, we report an illustrative case of a school-age child with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum and normal intelligence. We also provide a literature review about the postnatal screening of neurocognitive deficits in patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum.

Melanoma is unique among skin cancers in that it can spread anywhere in the body," Dr. Wray says. "Its thickness is a very important prognostic factor and determines whether we need to do a sentinel lymph node biopsy. If the lymph node biopsy is positive, it can significantly affect survival.". In a surgery performed under general anesthesia at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, Dr. Wray removed the spots with a wide local excision. He sent Jay for a sentinel lymph node biopsy, the removal of one or two lymph nodes from each arm. The pathology report came back negative. Because of the small number of lymph nodes removed, he was not at risk for lymphedema, which can cause swelling and pain, usually in the arms, and require rehabilitative treatment.. "Everything about the process was impressive," Jay says. "My professional career has led me to become an operations expert. My role has always been to make a process better, but I couldnt find any way to improve on my experience. I was really ...
Agenesis of the corpus callosum is the most frequent brain malformation. This anomaly may be diagnosed by ultrasound screening. In half of these prenatal cases, the anomaly seems to be isolated. In this setting, there are no prospective data concerning the development of these children, preventing any clear information to be delivered to parents. Prenatal diagnostic centers therefore face extremely variable rates of termination of pregnancies (TOP), which can reach up to 80%.. This is a multicentric prospective interventional study whose primary objective is to assess the neurological development at three years of age of children born after prenatal diagnosis of isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum.. Evaluation at three years will include Intellectual Quotient (IQ) quantification using the WPPSI-III, 3rd edition of Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence and evaluation of intra-hemispheric coordination using the Vineland adaptative behaviour scale.. Secondary objectives will ...

Aim: To evaluate the positive predictive value of the midsagittal view of the fetal brain in recognizing the cause of ventriculomegaly diagnosed with traditional axial scan.. Methods: Fifty-eight pregnant women, referred to our Center following a generic diagnosis of ventriculomegaly have been evaluated: 38 had marked and 20 had borderline ventriculomegaly. The fetal brain was scanned by the midsagittal view using a transabdominal probe in fetuses in breech presentation or transverse lie and a transvaginal probe in fetuses in cephalic presentation. The possible cause of ventriculomegaly was postulated by combining the findings of the corpus callosum/cavum septi pellucidi complex with those of the posterior fossa. The prenatal diagnoses were compared with the anatomical specimens of aborted fetuses or with postnatal neuroimaging.. Results: The prenatal diagnoses were confirmed in 54/58 cases (PPV 93.1%). In the marked ventriculomegaly group, one case of partial agenesis of the corpus callosum was ...
Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy with agenesis of the corpus callosum (HMSN/ACC or ACCPN), also known as Andermann Syndrome, a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by severe progressive sensorimotor neuropathy with resulting hypotonia, areflexia, and amyotrophy and variable degrees of dysgenesis of the corpus callosum.NIH ACCPN is inherited as an autosomal recessive, through mutations in the SLC12A6 gene. Several SLC12A6 mutations leading to ACCPN have been identified, including: ...
