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.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.Spasms, Infantile: An epileptic syndrome characterized by the triad of infantile spasms, hypsarrhythmia, and arrest of psychomotor development at seizure onset. The majority present between 3-12 months of age, with spasms consisting of combinations of brief flexor or extensor movements of the head, trunk, and limbs. The condition is divided into two forms: cryptogenic (idiopathic) and symptomatic (secondary to a known disease process such as intrauterine infections; nervous system abnormalities; BRAIN DISEASES, METABOLIC, INBORN; prematurity; perinatal asphyxia; TUBEROUS SCLEROSIS; etc.). (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp744-8)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.Syndrome: A characteristic symptom complex.Papilloma, Choroid Plexus: A usually benign neoplasm that arises from the cuboidal epithelium of the choroid plexus and takes the form of an enlarged CHOROID PLEXUS, which may be associated with oversecretion of CSF. The tumor usually presents in the first decade of life with signs of increased intracranial pressure including HEADACHES; ATAXIA; DIPLOPIA; and alterations of mental status. In children it is most common in the lateral ventricles and in adults it tends to arise in the fourth ventricle. Malignant transformation to choroid plexus carcinomas may rarely occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p667; DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2072)Sex Chromosome Disorders: Clinical conditions caused by an abnormal sex chromosome constitution (SEX CHROMOSOME ABERRATIONS), in which there is extra or missing sex chromosome material (either a whole chromosome or a chromosome segment).Periventricular Nodular Heterotopia: A disorder resulting from a defect in the pattern of neuronal migration in which ectopic collections of neurons lie along the lateral ventricles of the brain or just beneath, contiguously or in isolated patches.Malformations of Cortical Development: Abnormalities in the development of the CEREBRAL CORTEX. These include malformations arising from abnormal neuronal and glial CELL PROLIFERATION or APOPTOSIS (Group I); abnormal neuronal migration (Group II); and abnormal establishment of cortical organization (Group III). Many INBORN METABOLIC BRAIN DISORDERS affecting CNS formation are often associated with cortical malformations. They are common causes of EPILEPSY and developmental delay.Eye Abnormalities: Congenital absence of or defects in structures of the eye; may also be hereditary.Click Chemistry: Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.Visual Fields: The total area or space visible in a person's peripheral vision with the eye looking straightforward.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Alkynes: Hydrocarbons with at least one triple bond in the linear portion, of the general formula Cn-H2n-2.Double-Blind Method: A method of studying a drug or procedure in which both the subjects and investigators are kept unaware of who is actually getting which specific treatment.Internet: A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.Algorithms: A procedure consisting of a sequence of algebraic formulas and/or logical steps to calculate or determine a given task.Software: Sequential operating programs and data which instruct the functioning of a digital computer.Electromagnetic Fields: Fields representing the joint interplay of electric and magnetic forces.Focal Dermal Hypoplasia: A genetic skin disease characterized by hypoplasia of the dermis, herniations of fat, and hand anomalies. It is found exclusively in females and transmitted as an X-linked dominant trait.Microphthalmos: Congenital or developmental anomaly in which the eyeballs are abnormally small.Skin Abnormalities: Congenital structural abnormalities of the skin.Genetic Diseases, X-Linked: Genetic diseases that are linked to gene mutations on the X CHROMOSOME in humans (X CHROMOSOME, HUMAN) or the X CHROMOSOME in other species. Included here are animal models of human X-linked diseases.Macrocephaly: A congenital abnormality in which the occipitofrontal circumference is greater than two standard deviations above the mean for a given age. It is associated with HYDROCEPHALUS; SUBDURAL EFFUSION; ARACHNOID CYSTS; or is part of a genetic condition (e.g., ALEXANDER DISEASE; SOTOS SYNDROME).Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic: A chronic, relapsing, inflammatory, and often febrile multisystemic disorder of connective tissue, characterized principally by involvement of the skin, joints, kidneys, and serosal membranes. It is of unknown etiology, but is thought to represent a failure of the regulatory mechanisms of the autoimmune system. The disease is marked by a wide range of system dysfunctions, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and the formation of LE cells in the blood or bone marrow.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Ribonuclease H: A ribonuclease that specifically cleaves the RNA moiety of RNA:DNA hybrids. It has been isolated from a wide variety of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms as well as RETROVIRUSES.Ribonuclease H, Human Immunodeficiency Virus: A ribonuclease activity that is a component of the HIV REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE. It removes the RNA strand of the RNA-DNA heteroduplex produced by reverse transcription. Once the RNA moiety is removed a double stranded DNA copy of the HIV RNA can be synthesized.ItalyMedlinePlus: NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE service for health professionals and consumers. It links extensive information from the National Institutes of Health and other reviewed sources of information on specific diseases and conditions.International Cooperation: The interaction of persons or groups of persons representing various nations in the pursuit of a common goal or interest.Iris Diseases: Diseases, dysfunctions, or disorders of or located in the iris.SwitzerlandCysts: Any fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM. Cysts can be of normal, abnormal, non-neoplastic, or neoplastic tissues.Color: The visually perceived property of objects created by absorption or reflection of specific wavelengths of light.Iris: The most anterior portion of the uveal layer, separating the anterior chamber from the posterior. It consists of two layers - the stroma and the pigmented epithelium. Color of the iris depends on the amount of melanin in the stroma on reflection from the pigmented epithelium.Hemoglobins, Abnormal: Hemoglobins characterized by structural alterations within the molecule. The alteration can be either absence, addition or substitution of one or more amino acids in the globin part of the molecule at selected positions in the polypeptide chains.Terminology as Topic: The terms, expressions, designations, or symbols used in a particular science, discipline, or specialized subject area.

When Brookie was 5 weeks old she was diagnosed with a life threatening, non curable disease called Aicardi Syndrome. It was a hard time in our lives but we have accepted it, embraced it, and are loving the life lessons we learn with her along the way. What is Aicardi Syndrome? In short, Aicardi syndrome is a rare genetic neurological syndrome characterized by the partial or complete absence of a key structure in the brain called the corpus callosum, the presence of retinal abnormalities, seizures, global developmental delays, cerebral palsy and scoliosis. While all of this sounds super scary, Brookie is a thriving little girl despite her disabilities. Always a baby, she will be very delayed developmentally, but spiritually she is a strong shining light. Brookie has taught us to remember what is truly important and to look for the silver lining in the clouds on dark days. Though are lives were changed forever, it has been for the best.

Lili is 2 and a half years old. She has a very rare genetic condition named Aicardi Syndrome. Lili was born 10 weeks prematurely by emergency C Section due to placenta previa. She weighed just 2lb 15oz and was absolutely tiny.. She was well cared for in our local SCBU. She had a few ultrasound head scans which had showed she had some abnormalities on her brain. We were told to look out for things that didnt seem right. We took her home after a very long and stressful 7 weeks. We enjoyed feeding her via bottle, seeing her grow and start reaching her milestones, smile, laugh, hold head and so on. We honestly thought she was proving all these health professionals wrong!. Then on 2nd December 2012 Lili had her very first seizure where we immediately rushed her to our Hospital. From there she was transmitted to the UHW (University Hospital of Wales). After running a few tests, Lili was diagnosed with Aicardi Snydrome. We were absolutely heart broken. We were just given a diagnosis and that was it. ...

Aicardi syndrome is a sporadic X-linked dominant, presumably male-lethal, neurodevelopmental disorder. It was initially characterized by agenesis of the corpus callosum, neuronal migration defects, eye abnormalities (chorioretinal lacunae, colobomas of the optic nerve and microphthalmia) and severe early-onset seizures and neurodevelopmental delay. It is now well recognized that other brain abnormalities, such as polymicrogyria, agyria, cysts and heterotopias are common features of Aicardi syndrome. We previously hypothesized that the gene causing Aicardi syndrome and possibly additional phenotypically similar disorders with X-linked inheritance, such as Goltz syndrome or Focal Dermal Hypoplasia, are in or near the region on chromosome Xp22 that is deleted in another condition named microphthalmia with linear skin defects syndrome (MLS), because all three have some clinical similarities. However, interim studies have shown that this is likely not the case because no mutations were found in ...
Dr. Elliott Sherr and his collaborators at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) are studying the genetic causes of disorders of cognition and epilepsy, in particular disorders of brain development that affect the corpus callosum, such as Aicardi syndrome, as well as two additional brain malformations, polymicrogyria and Dandy-Walker malformation. The goal of the investigators research is to use a better understanding of the underlying genetic causes as a foundation to develop better treatments for these groups of patients.. ...

Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS), which is completely distinct from the similarly named Aicardi syndrome, is a rare, usually early onset childhood, inflammatory disorder most typically affecting the brain and the skin (neurodevelopmental disorder). The majority of affected individuals experience significant intellectual and physical problems, although this is not always the case. The clinical features of AGS can mimic those of in utero acquired infection, and some characteristics of the condition also overlap with the autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Following an original description of eight cases in 1984, the condition was first referred to as Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS) in 1992, and the first international meeting on AGS was held in Pavia, Italy, in 2001. AGS can occur due to mutations in any one of a number of different genes, of which seven have been identified to date, namely: TREX1, RNASEH2A, RNASEH2B, RNASEH2C (which together encode the Ribonuclease H2 ...
Although gait disorders are frequently associated with Alzheimers disease (AD), few studies have focused on their characterization and mechanism. Exploring the associations of the gait characteristics - more particularly the gait variability - with the cognitive performance of AD patients on one hand, and with the morphological brain abnormalities on the other hand, could be useful to understanding the mechanisms of gait disorders in AD.. The main objective of this study is to examine and to compare gait characteristics under single- and dual-task conditions among healthy subjects together with AD patients at different stages of disease (i.e., pre-dementia, mild and moderate dementia stages). ...

Neurology is the medical discipline dealing with neurological disorders (disorders of the nervous system). To be specific, neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease and disorders involving the central and peripheral nervous system, as well as related symptoms (e.g., back pain), signs (e.g., aphasia), and syndromes (e.g., Aicardi syndrome). The term neurology was once used in a synonymous way with the current definition of neuroscience. For example, MaGills Medical Guide (2008) defines neurology as "the study of the nervous system" and "the study of the structure and function of the nervous system" (Hollar 2008). However, today neurology is limited to the medical specialty dealing with disorders and diseases of the nervous system. As such, it can be seen as a branch of neuroscience. It also can be seen as part of clinical neuroscience, along with psychiatry and many allied health professions such as speech-language pathology. Psychiatry is the medical ...

Conclusion. Subacute and chronic avulsion injuries of the extensor mechanism of the knee are commonly encountered abnormalities on MR imaging in children and adult patients participating in sports related activities. Although the prognosis is usually good, prompt and accurate diagnosis is still essential for initiation of proper treatment and prevention of more serious injury. Radiographic findings may be subtle or may be misinterpreted, especially in the skeletally immature patient. MRI allows evaluation of the full extent of osseous and tendon abnormalities. Chronic avulsion injuries of the extensor mechanism are sometimes incidental findings when patients are being imaged for internal derangement of the knee, and knowledge of the correct terminology and the variable appearances of these injures will assist in clinical management..

X-linked dominant disorders are caused by mutations in genes on the X chromosome. Only a few disorders have this inheritance pattern, with a prime example being X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets. Males and females are both affected in these disorders, with males typically being more severely affected than females. Some X-linked dominant conditions, such as Rett syndrome, incontinentia pigmenti type 2, and Aicardi syndrome, are usually fatal in males either in utero or shortly after birth, and are therefore predominantly seen in females. Exceptions to this finding are extremely rare cases in which boys with Klinefelter syndrome (47,XXY) also inherit an X-linked dominant condition and exhibit symptoms more similar to those of a female in terms of disease severity. The chance of passing on an X-linked dominant disorder differs between men and women. The sons of a man with an X-linked dominant disorder will all be unaffected (since they receive their fathers Y chromosome), and his daughters will ...
The early and effective treatment of infantile spasms has been associated with better developmental outcomes for patients, while delayed remission of the infantile spasms may contribute to poorer outcomes. In fact, a U.S. Consensus Report on infantile spasms has recommended early changes in treatment (e.g. 2 weeks) if there is no remission of infantile spasms.. But a study from Nationwide Childrens Hospital has found that one of the most frequently used first- or second-line treatments for the spasms, the anticonvulsant topiramate, is largely ineffective. And even in the few cases where topiramate led to remission, the remission was temporary with all responders subsequently experiencing relapse.. "We lose precious time if we fiddle around with medications that dont often work," says John R. Mytinger, MD, a neurologist at Nationwide Childrens, director of the hospitals Infantile Spasms Program, and senior author of the study. "We have only three drugs that have greater than class IV evidence ...

EPILEPSY: NATURE, MANAGEMENT, AND MEMORY. This paper provides a brief description of Epilepsy and its impact upon cognitive functioning. Particular reference is made to memory in individuals affected, and to the prognosis for memory INTRODUCTION. It is noted (by Aicardi 1992) that a diagnosis of epilepsy may evoke a range of myths and prejudices that have been associated with seizure disorders. The implication is to provide maximal information to all those concerned with the child in respect of the likely impact of the condition and the needs that may be linked to it.. For example, it should be pointed out that epilepsy is not a disease in its own right, and that seizures are just one form of symptoms of various types of brain disfunction of which some are quite benign.. Further, it must be recognised that epilepsies are by no means necessarily life long conditions and that it is inappropriate to fear that brain tumours or other serious brain disorders are a common cause of the epileptic ...

This year-long proof of concept explores the interplay between bacterial communication circuits and the surface topology of the substrate they are on, to see if certain designed surface features can be made to trigger genetic development switches. Differentiation due to a diffusible chemical signal is central in the development of multicellular organisms. Success in replicating this strategy on a synthetic structure enables a spatially programmable consortium of bacterial cells. Our aims were to enable the self-assembly of multicellular microbial films on the surface of synthetic silicon and polymer forms to form hybrid constructs, generation of construct polarity in gene expression driven by the topology of the synthetic form, and size control of the assembled multicellular film. These achievements would enable our long term vision, which is to create a micro scale, programmable cellular-synthetic hybrid robot capable of autonomous motility, sensing and response in aqueous environments.

We report 13 cases of ophthalmic complications resulting from dengue infection in Singapore. We performed a retrospective analysis of a series of 13 patients with dengue fever who had visual impairment. Investigations included Humphrey automated visual field analyzer, Amsler charting, fundus fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography. Twenty-two eyes of 13 patients were affected. The mean age of patients was 31.7 years. Visual acuity varied from 20/25 to counting fingers only. Twelve patients (92.3%) noted central vision impairment. Onset of visual impairment coincided with the nadir of serum thrombocytopenia. Ophthalmologic findings include macular edema and blot hemorrhages (10), cotton wool spots (1), retinal vasculitis (4), exudative retinal detachment (2), and anterior uveitis (1). All patients recovered visual acuity to 20/30 or better with residual central scotoma by 12 weeks. These new complications suggest a widening spectrum of ophthalmic complications in dengue infection.
