Aggravation of brainstem symptoms caused by a large superior cerebellar artery aneurysm after embolization by Guglielmi detachable coils--case report. (1/22)

An 81-year-old male presented with right oculomotor nerve paresis and left hemiparesis caused by a mass effect of a large superior cerebellar artery aneurysm. Endovascular treatment was performed using Guglielmi detachable coils. The patient subsequently suffered aggravation of the mass effect 3 weeks after the embolization. Bilateral vertebral artery occlusion was performed, which decreased the cerebral edema surrounding the aneurysm, but his neurological symptoms did not improve. Parent artery occlusion is recommended as the first choice of treatment for an unclippable large or giant aneurysm causing a mass effect on the brainstem.  (+info)

Residual cerebral activity and behavioural fragments can remain in the persistently vegetative brain. (2/22)

This report identifies evidence of partially functional cerebral regions in catastrophically injured brains. To study five patients in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) with different behavioural features, we employed [(18)F]fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), MRI and magnetoencephalographic (MEG) responses to sensory stimulation. Each patient's brain expressed a unique metabolic pattern. In three of the five patients, co-registered PET/MRI correlate islands of relatively preserved brain metabolism with isolated fragments of behaviour. Two patients had suffered anoxic injuries and demonstrated marked decreases in overall cerebral metabolism to 30-40% of normal. Two other patients with non-anoxic, multifocal brain injuries demonstrated several isolated brain regions with relatively higher metabolic rates, that ranged up to 50-80% of normal. Nevertheless, their global metabolic rates remained <50% of normal. MEG recordings from three PVS patients provide clear evidence for the absence, abnormality or reduction of evoked responses. Despite major abnormalities, however, these data also provide evidence for localized residual activity at the cortical level. Each patient partially preserved restricted sensory representations, as evidenced by slow evoked magnetic fields and gamma band activity. In two patients, these activations correlate with isolated behavioural patterns and metabolic activity. Remaining active regions identified in the three PVS patients with behavioural fragments appear to consist of segregated corticothalamic networks that retain connectivity and partial functional integrity. A single patient who suffered severe injury to the tegmental mesencephalon and paramedian thalamus showed widely preserved cortical metabolism, and a global average metabolic rate of 65% of normal. The relatively high preservation of cortical metabolism in this patient defines the first functional correlate of clinical- pathological reports associating permanent unconsciousness with structural damage to these regions. The specific patterns of preserved metabolic activity identified in these patients do not appear to represent random survivals of a few neuronal islands; rather they reflect novel evidence of the modular nature of individual functional networks that underlie conscious brain function. The variations in cerebral metabolism in chronic PVS patients indicate that some cerebral regions can retain partial function in catastrophically injured brains.  (+info)

Posterior encephalopathy subsequent to cyclosporin A presenting as irreversible abulia. (3/22)

A case of cyclosporin A (Cys A)-induced posterior encephalopathy developed into persistent abulia despite rapid and marked improvement of abnormal T2- and FLAIR MRI hyperintense regions. Diffusion-weighted MRI signal intensity was also high at the onset. This change is atypical in Cys A-induced encephalopathy and was thought to predict poor recovery from the encephalopathy. Persistent abulia was probably due to marked hypoperfusion in the whole cortex including bilateral frontal lobes and basal ganglia as detected by SPECT. Apart from the breakdown of the blood-brain barrier, direct toxicity of Cys A to the brain may play a role in the pathogenesis of chronic, irreversible encephalopathy.  (+info)

Leukoencephalopathy induced by tegafur: serial studies of somatosensory evoked potentials and cerebrospinal fluid. (4/22)

A case of leukoencephalopathy induced by tegafur, an antineoplastic derivative of 5-FU, is reported. The patient received 600 mg of tegafur p.o. for 16 days before excision of rectal cancer. After the operation, gait disturbance and mental abnormalities appeared. He became akinetic and mute within a few days following readministration of tegafur. Serial studies of brain CT, somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) were made, and myelin basic proteins (MBP) in the cerebrospinal fluid were measured. The level of MBP was about twice the normal value and the central conduction time (CCT) of SEP was prolonged at admission. The value of MBP and CCT improved with recovery from akinetic mutism.  (+info)

Abulia following penetrating brain injury during endoscopic sinus surgery with disruption of the anterior cingulate circuit: case report. (5/22)

BACKGROUND: It is common knowledge that the frontal lobes mediate complex human behavior and that damage to these regions can cause executive dysfunction, apathy, disinhibition and personality changes. However, it is less well known that subcortical structures such as the caudate and thalamus are part of functionally segregated fronto-subcortical circuits, that can also alter behavior after injury. CASE PRESENTATION We present a 57 year old woman who suffered penetrating brain injury during endoscopic sinus surgery causing right basal ganglia injury which resulted in an abulic syndrome. CONCLUSION: Abulia does not result solely from cortical injury but can occur after disruption anywhere in the anterior cingulate circuit--in the case of our patient, most prominently at the right caudate.  (+info)

MRI findings from a case of fulminating adult-onset measles encephalitis. (6/22)

We report a rare case of fulminating adult-onset measles encephalitis. A 34-year-old man developed a comatose state after measles eruptions and ultimately akinetic mutism. Titers of anti-measles IgM antibodies were elevated in both serum and cerebrospinal fluid. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) 3 months after onset revealed widespread hyperintense lesions in the periventricular white matter and marginal hyperintense lesions in the brainstem on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery and diffusion-weighted images. The marginal lesions in the brainstem are similar to subpial demyelinating lesions seen in postinfectious encephalomyelitis. This case of encephalitis may be related to an autoimmune-mediated process triggered by measles infection.  (+info)

Akinetic mutism after right internal watershed infarction. (7/22)

We describe a 72-year-old man who developed akinetic mutism following a cerebrovascular accident involving his right internal watershed area and responded well to dopaminergic agonists. We discuss this rare condition and the unusual unilateral location of the lesion.  (+info)

Akinetic mutism responsive to bromocriptine following subdural hematoma evacuation in a patient with hydrocephalus. (8/22)

An 11-year-old girl with obstructive hydrocephalus developed akinetic mutism after treatment for hydrocephalus due to aqueductal stenosis by ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunting. Bilateral chronic subdural hematomas developed about 2 months after insertion of the VP shunt and were evacuated. Postoperatively, the patient developed akinetic mutism, but her condition improved after administration of bromocriptine. Absence of abnormalities on dopamine transporter single photon emission computed tomography, lack of clinical response to levodopa treatment, and normal homovanillic acid concentration in the cerebrospinal fluid all indicated normal dopamine production. Pressure on the periventricular monoamine projections in the thalamus and hypothalamus without major dopamine deprivation in the striatum may have been the most important factors in the development of akinetic mutism in this patient.  (+info)

Synonyms for akinetic mutism in Free Thesaurus. Antonyms for akinetic mutism. 1 synonym for mutism: muteness. What are synonyms for akinetic mutism?
Akinetic mutism is a medical term describing patients tending neither to move (akinesia) nor speak (mutism). Akinetic mutism was first described in 1941 as a mental state where patients lack the ability to move or speak. However, their eyes may follow their observer or be diverted by sound. Patients lack most motor functions such as speech, facial expressions, and gestures, but demonstrate apparent alertness. They exhibit reduced activity and slowness, and can speak in whispered monosyllables. Patients often show visual fixation on their examiner, move their eyes in response to an auditory stimulus, or move after often repeated commands. Patients with akinetic mutism are not paralyzed, but lack the will to move. Many patients describe that as soon as they will or attempt a movement, a counter-will or resistance rises up to meet them. Akinetic mutism varies across all patients. Its form, intensity, and clinical features correspond more closely to its functional anatomy rather than to its ...

We studied a 70-year-old woman with a unique combination of hyperkinesia and mutism. These findings differed from akinetic mutism because there was continuous bilateral ballism and dystonia--hence the term hyperkinetic mutism. CT demonstrated bilateral calcifications in the basal ganglia, and MRI indicated bilateral watershed infarcts. Different dopaminergic mechanisms may underlie the hyperkinesia and mutism.
ABSTRACT: The locked-in syndrome (pseudocoma) describes patients who are awake and conscious but selectively deefferented, i.e., have no means of producing speech, limb or facial movements. Acute ventral pontine lesions are its most common cause. People with such brainstem lesions often remain comatose for some days or weeks, needing artificial respiration and then gradually wake up, but remaining paralyzed and voiceless, superficially resembling patients in a vegetative state or akinetic mutism. In acute locked-in syndrome (LIS), eye-coded communication and evaluation of cognitive and emotional functioning is very limited because vigilance is fluctuating and eye movements may be inconsistent, very small, and easily exhausted. It has been shown that more than half of the time it is the family and not the physician who first realized that the patient was aware. Distressingly, recent studies reported that the diagnosis of LIS on average takes over two and half months. In some cases it took four to ...
Akinetic mutism describes a situation where a patient is alert but unable to move or talk. These symptoms are caused by brain damage.

Selective mutism occurs when a child only feels comfortable talking to one or two people, but does not talk to others. Selective mutism is not a communications disorder, and children with selective mutism are not developmentally delayed. Anxiety causes this problem, and most children with selective mutism fit the adult definition of social anxiety disorder.
Brocas aphasia may manifest as mutism in some patients. Mutism may be misinterpreted as part of a depressive illness in patients with a psychiatric history. We report on a patient presenting with acute mutism who had a history of amphetamine and cannabis abuse and was later found to have sustained an infarct of the dorsolateral frontal cortex. Recognition of this mode of presentation will aid early diagnosis and treatment. ...
To help a child suffering in silence, an understanding of which stage the child is in during particular social encounters must be developed. The Social Communication Anxiety Inventory (SCAI©) can be used to determine the stage of social communication on the Social Communication Bridge®. Treatment is then developed via the whole child approach. This means under the direction of the treatment professional, the child, parents, and school personnel work together.. Dr. Shipon-Blum emphasizes that although anxiety lowering is key, it is often not enough, especially as children age. Over time, many children with Selective Mutism no longer feel anxious, but their mutism and lack of proper social engagement continue to exist in select settings.. Children with SM need strategies and interventions to progress from nonverbal to spoken communication. This is the Transitional Stage of Communication; an aspect missing from most treatment plans. In other words, how do you help a child progress from nonverbal ...
A 55-year-old female is presented with transient cerebellar mutism caused by a well-circumscribed left pontine infarction due to postoperative basilar perforator occlusion. Although conventional T2 imaging shows a well-demarcated lesion confined to the pontine region, diffusion tensor imaging shows an asymmetry in fractional anisotropy in the superior cerebellar peduncle. This supports the general hypothesis that cerebellar mutism is caused by functional disruption of the dentate-rubro-thalamic tract. Correlating postoperative anatomic changes to a heterogenic clinical syndrome remains challenging, however.
Note: I wrote this article for a local magazine published in 2009 and am sharing it here five years on. This is one instalment in a series on selective mutism that I will be posting throughout this year.. _________________________________________________________. "She doesnt speak in class.". Thats how my ten-year-old classmates explained it. Not she cant speak, not she wont speak, just a matter-of-fact behavioural observation, uttered in a non-judgmental chorus as the supply teacher struggled to understand why I did not respond to the register.. I was always quiet. I was the midwives favourite infant for bathing demonstrations - I refused to cry in front of adults. I made them look good.. I was not physically incapable of speech. In fact, I was very talkative - to other children and to my immediate family. With others I was trapped in silence.. At twenty-one, a friend emailed me an interesting webpage, saying, "Doesnt this sound like you?" and I discovered "Selective Mutism", a social ...
Selective Mutism (previously called Elective Mutism) occurs when a child persistently fails to speak in certain social situations where speaking is expected.

In-depth narrative interviews were conducted with six individuals who had continued to experience selective mutism throughout their adult life. Data from my own experience of suffering from SM were also included. Interpretative phenomenological analysis was used to identify five essential themes. These findings provide an insight into the embodied experience of selective mutism, the process of sense making in which individuals engage to negotiate their identities and the effects of social isolation. Furthermore this research explores the experiences of therapy and help seeking which were important topics within participant narratives ...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to examine the prevalence of selective mutism (SM) in Kocaeli, Turkey. METHOD Kindergarten, first, second and third grade students of all public/private schools within the city were included in the study. SM screening forms prepared on basis of DSM-IV were submitted to classroom teachers in all these schools asking whether they had any students meeting such symptoms. RESULTS About 84.51% of the schools returned forms covering 64,103 children. Five hundred and twenty six of these children were thought to have symptoms of SM by their teachers. After their DSM-IV based clinical evaluation by a child and adolescent psychiatrist, only 21 children were diagnosed as SM. Among the SM group, three were in the kindergarten, 15 were in the first grade and three were in the second grade. Twelve of the children were male and nine were female (male: female ratio is 1.3:1). In this cross-sectional study, 0.83% of children were reported to have SM symptoms by their teachers.

Dr. Rachel Busman discusses selective mutism disorder, from its prevalence, and how it impacts school and social life, to the most effective treatments.
This started me thinking of the slow progress Josiah did show, what he was already achieving already. If one is honest he/she must admit dealing with Selective Mutism as a parent is frustrating it takes some time to achieve anything and even then they can regress without warning or any reasons why. This is what lead to our decision, did I want to start medication out of frustration. Secondly for medication to work there must be a strong support base, which in some aspects we didnt have. We were and still are waiting on the results of the funding application the school had made. If were to take a risk and try the medication we want to have everything set in place at this point that isnt the case. I also considered that the impact for Josiah to overcome his fears and the strength of self he would have if he was able to do this on his own. Now dont get me wrong I wouldnt allow him to suffer in his anxiety or flounder, this only works as long as their is small baby steps of progress. So for now ...

So this week I had an experience online on facebook on one of the communities were we were discussing organisation, home routines and how we all cope with the pressures that we face. During the discussion it was revealed how hard it is for us all to cope and how much we need to take a handle on our lives to make things easier, less stressful and much easier to run. One of my weird passions is organisation, not in the sense that I have my house clean or that everything is run perfectly. But in the sense of my life I try to keep things under control by using the tools that we have online and using our technology such as our phones and ...
The application of twin screw extrusion (TSE) as a scalable and green process for the manufacture of cocrystals was investigated. Four model cocrystal forming systems, Caffeine-Oxalic acid, Nicotinamide-trans cinnamic acid, Carbamazepine-Saccharin, and Theophylline-Citric acid, were selected for the study. The parameters of the extrusion process that influenced cocrystal formation were examined. TSE was found to be an effective method to make cocrystals for all four systems studied. It was demonstrated that temperature and extent of mixing in the extruder were the primary process parameters that influenced extent of conversion to the cocrystal in neat TSE experiments. In addition to neat extrusion, liquid-assisted TSE was also demonstrated for the first time as a viable process for making cocrystals. Notably, the use of catalytic amount of benign solvents led to a lowering of processing temperatures required to form the cocrystal in the extruder. TSE should be considered as an efficient, scalable, and
Selective mutism is different from being shy. And the inability to speak is not the same (but can co-occur with) social anxiety disorder.
This report raises the issue of a patient who, despite the preservation of intraoperative mMEPs, emerged from anaesthesia with hemiplegia and mutism. Unexpected postoperative neurological deficits are traumatic to both patients, their family, and the surgical team. In this setting, the ability to predict outcome significantly contributes to the clinical management of these patients. Whenever neuroimaging studies are not conclusive, functional-rather than morphological-evaluation of the integrity of M1/CST using neurophysiological tests could be useful.. Zentner et al 8 described 13 patients who had resective procedures involving the SMA. Despite preservation of mMEPs at the end of surgery in all of them, five patients emerged from anaesthesia with a typical SMA syndrome including hemiplegia contralateral to the resection side. Elicitability of mMEPs was tested early postoperatively using the single magnetic stimulus technique, but mMEPs were not present in the immediate postoperative period and ...
There is no way back to the Garden of Eden, back to nature, and no chance of becoming the gods we appear to think we are now. We neither would want to overcome nature nor would we want to go back to nature. There is at least one more option: to find balance with nature. This could be a sensible, alternate path to the future and a goal to be reached with all deliberate speed for the sake of the children. After all, we are borrowing this world from our children. Surely we will not continue mortgaging the childrens future and ruining the planet all of us inhabit here now to the point Earth cannot be fruitfully inhabited by them and coming generations. Certainly not on our watch!. Responsible people will have to stop colluding in elective mutism and ignoring the best available scientific evidence of human population dynamics and human overpopulation of the Earth. The time remaining for us elders to secure a good enough future for the children is fairly short, I suppose. We cannot effectively ...

Climate change is causing growing variability and uncertainty in rainfall in Africa. Since the continents food production systems are dominantly rain-fed, these changes are putting food security at even higher risk. In order to reduce this dependency, institutional reforms in the agricultural water sectors have become a priority in research and policy.. In this report, Atakilte Beyene, senior researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute, together with twelve researchers based in Africa, studies current agricultural water reforms in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and other East African countries. The report consists of four case studies and an introductory section. The first case study evaluates the performance of community participation in water resources governance in the Mount Kenya Region. It uncovers the implication of a ban on traditional institutions on water security at a catchment level. The second case analyses the prospects of introducing pro-poor water schemes in conditions where climate ...
This book addresses the history of interaction in the Aegean world during the third century BC. The main focus is the island of Delos and its important regional sanctuary. Through a thorough investigation of the Delian epigraphic and material evidence, it explores how and to which degree the islands of the southern Aegean formed active networks of political, religious, and cultural interaction. The book aims to show that this kind of regional interaction in the southern Aegean resulted in the creation of a regional identity, which was expressed, among other things, in the existence of a federal union of the islands, the so-called Islanders League. It is structured along the lines of four case studies which explore different types of networks around Delos: the federal organization of islands (Islanders League), the participation of Delian and other agents in the processes of monumentalization of the Delian landscape, the network of honours, and the social dynamics of dedication through the record of

© 2014 Mac Keith Press. Aim: Paediatric opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome (OMS) is a poorly understood condition with long-term cognitive, behavioural, and motor sequelae. Neuroimaging has indicated cerebellar atrophy in the chronic phase, but this alone may not explain the cognitive sequelae seen in many children with OMS. This study aimed to determine the extent of structural change throughout the brain that may underpin the range of clinical outcomes. Method: Nine participants with OMS (one male, eight females; mean age [SD] 14y, [6y 5mo] , range 12-30y) and 10 comparison individuals (three males, seven females; mean age 12y 6mo, [4y 9mo], range 10-23y) underwent magnetic resonance imaging to acquire T1-weighted structural images, diffusion-weighted images, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy scans. Neuroblastoma had been present in four participants with OMS. Voxel-based morphometry was used to determine changes in grey matter volume, tract-based spatial statistics to analyze white matter integrity,
Transient cerebellar mutism is a well-known clinical entity which may develop after surgery to the cerebellum. As the period of mutism is followed by motor speech deficits, the condition has also been termed the syndrome of (cerebellar) Mutism and Subsequent Dysarthria (MSD). In children, its incidence is estimated between 8% and 31%. Unfortunately, the literature provides contradictory information regarding motor speech production post-mutism. We therefore critically reviewed data on 283 childhood cases to chart the mode of recovery of motor speech production after the mute period. After applying stringent exclusion criteria, we found that 98.8% of the children displayed motor speech deficits. This percentage is much higher than commonly reported in the literature. In addition, recovery of speech appeared to be less favourable than previously ascertained. Future studies should investigate more carefully the patients speech characteristics in order to be able to offer children an adequate and ...

As a young child, thankfully, I was not over-exposed to television. It was kept absolutely minimal. I say, thankfully, because growing up in Queensland, it just doesnt do to live your life indoors with that perfect climate day in, day out.

A watershed stroke or watershed infarct is defined as ischemia that is localized to the vulnerable border zones between the tissues supplied via the Anterior, Posterior and Middle Cerebral arteries.(Note that the actual blood stream blockage/restriction site can be located far away from the infarcts. See "Pathogenesis" followed.) Watershed locations are those border-zone regions in the brain supplied by the major cerebral arteries where blood supply is decreased. Watershed strokes are a concern because they comprise approximately 10% of all ischemic stroke cases. The watershed zones themselves are particularly susceptible to infarction from global ischemia as the distal nature of the vasculature predisposes these areas to be most sensitive to profound hypoperfusion. Watershed strokes are localized to two primary regions of the brain, and are termed cortical watersheds (CWS) and internal watersheds (IWS). Patients with many different cardiovascular diseases have a higher likelihood of ...

I was 9-11 years old when I progressively went from 90% meaning deaf and predominantly stored phrases, TV scripts and echolalia to being only 50% meaning deaf and finally striving to string simple novel sentences together. By age 11 I could construct slow, klunky simple sentences (and still also had fluent, expressive echolalia), by age 12 I could do long litanies at people and was developing simple conversing skills. By 18 I had learned to suppress much of my echolalia, keeping my self chatter for when I was alone. So how did this happen?. Around age 9-11 my father left a record player and a pile of old 78 records in my room featuring a vast array of theatrical songs from the 1920s-1940s and I came to sing in a vast array of voices with far expanded, albeit echolalic, vocabulary. This also greatly improved my confidence with verbal speech and my enjoyment of it and countered many an episode of Selective Mutism as I progressively moved into functional speech.. Around age 9-10 I was also left a ...

Tinley 1979:33). The Pilanesberg was to be different and the aim was to reflect a new vision of conservation practice in Africa.. Not only did they introduce the radical idea of using national parks sustainably as engines of regional development sensitive to local community needs, Van Riet and Tinley also introduced a novel concept of planning and design (Farrell et al. 1978). After surveying the geomorphology and other aspects of the landscape, habitats and vegetation cover, their report proposed that in order to maximise wildlife viewing in the small area and utilise it to the best advantage, all major tourism facilities should be located on the boundaries of the park, thus preserving the interior of the crater from unsightly camps, restaurants and other amenities. This peripheral development was different from other national parks and game reserves which had normally sited major visitor accommodation within the protected area itself. Moreover, using the internal watersheds as ecological ...

The symptoms of congenital heart failure are addressed in this surgical procedure for mounting a patch in the ventricle of the heart to reduce ventricular volume. Placement of the patch is facilitated by palpating a beating heart to identify akinetic, although normal appearing, tissue. An apical patch having an oval configuration facilitates return of the heart to a normal apical shape which enhances muscle fiber efficiency and a normal writhing pumping action. An inferior patch having a triangular configuration can also be used. The patches include a semi-rigid ring, and a circumferential rim to address bleeding. Patch placement is further enhanced by creating a Fontan-type neck and use of pledged sutures. Intraoperative vascularization and valve replacement is easily accommodated. Increased injection fraction, reduced muscle stress, improved myocardial protection, and ease of accurate patch placement are all achieved with this procedure.
A system for improving cardiac function is provided. A foldable and expandable frame having at least one anchoring formation is attached to an elongate manipulator and placed in a catheter tube while folded. The tube is inserted into a left ventricle of a heart where the frame is ejected from the tube and expands in the left ventricle. Movements of the elongate manipulator cause the anchor to penetrate the heart muscle and the elongate manipulator to release the frame. The installed frame minimizes the effects of an akinetic portion of the heart forming an aneurysmic bulge.

article{3b94fe51-5ede-44c7-b145-50a32f25b51b, abstract = {,p,Background: Central nervous system tumours constitute 25% of all childhood cancers; more than half are located in the posterior fossa and surgery is usually part of therapy. One of the most disabling late effects of posterior fossa tumour surgery is the cerebellar mutism syndrome (CMS) which has been reported in up to 39% of the patients but the exact incidence is uncertain since milder cases may be unrecognized. Recovery is usually incomplete. Reported risk factors are tumour type, midline location and brainstem involvement, but the exact aetiology, surgical and other risk factors, the clinical course and strategies for prevention and treatment are yet to be determined. Methods: This observational, prospective, multicentre study will include 500 children with posterior fossa tumours. It opened late 2014 with participation from 20 Nordic and Baltic centres.

To test our principal hypothesis that there is an imbalance of pro-inflammatory (Th1) and anti-inflammatory (Th2) cytokines in OMS, a comprehensive cytokine panel will be measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and multiplexed fluorescent bead-based immunoassay detection (LUMINEX 100 Lab MAP system)in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 400 children. To test the second hypothesis that cytokines could serve as biomarkers of disease activity in OMS, cytokine concentrations will be correlated with clinical variables, such as disease severity, OMS duration, prior relapses, and remissions, as well as immunological variables, such as lymphocyte subset analysis. The cytokine biomarker profile could aid decision making for early intervention by identifying children at high risk for relapse and ...
We describe 2 children with postinfectious opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome. Although the patients initially responded to monotherapy with methylprednisolone, intravenous immunoglobulins, or rituximab, they manifested persistent neurologic deficits and relapsing signs. Treatment with rituximab in combination with intravenous immunoglobulin, however, resulted in significant longterm clinical improvement ...
Opsoclonus-myoclonus ataxia syndrome (OMS) is a rare immune mediated paraneoplastic syndrome that occurs in approximately 2 to 3% of children with neuroblastoma. Children with neuroblastoma associated opsoclonus-myoclonus tend to have a favorable prognosis from the standpoint of the cure of their cancer. Unfortunately,approximately two-thirds of this subgroup of patients are left with long term sequellae of the syndrome, including residual symptoms of opsoclonus, myoclonus, ataxia, learning difficulties and disturbance of sleep and mood.. Multiple lines of evidence indicate an immune mechanism to this rare disorder. This includes occurence of OMS in the post-infectious state, aggressive lymphocytic infiltration of the tumor in children with OMS, and documented responses to therapries that act through suppression of the immune system.. The current study utilizes four weekly doses of anti-CD 20 antibody (rituximab) to treat children with refractory OMS. Refractory disease is defined as continued ...
Few comparative studies have evaluated the heterogeneity of sociability across a range of neurodevelopmental disorders. The Sociability Questionnaire for People with Intellectual Disability (SQID) was completed by caregivers of individuals with Cornelia de Lange (n = 98), Angelman (n = 66), Fragile X (n = 142), Down (n = 117) and Rubinstein Taybi (n = 88) syndromes and autism spectrum disorder (ASD; n = 107). Between groups and age-band (18yrs) comparisons of SQID scores were conducted. Rates of behaviors indicative of selective mutism were also examined. Fragile X syndrome achieved the lowest SQID scores. Cornelia de Lange, ASD, and Fragile X groups scored significantly lower than Angelman, Down and Rubinstein Taybi groups. Selective mutism characteristics were highest in Cornelia de Lange (40%) followed by Fragile X (17.8%) and ASD (18.2%). Age-band differences were identified in Cornelia de Lange and Down syndrome ...

Background. Assessment of myocardial viability is important for the risk stratification of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Low-dose dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) is useful for the detection of viable myocardium in akinetic area but its accuracy depends on the experience of the readers. Strain image analysis based on 2-dimensional (2D) speckle tracking enables objective and quantitative evaluation of regional myocardial contractility. We investigated whether 2D strain image analysis could detect myocardial viability on the early stage of AMI.. Methods. Myocardial viability was assessed by low-dose DSE on day-3 in 16 patients (age 61±12 years) with AMI, using Vivid-7 (GE Medical Systems). We measured longitudinal and transverse peak systolic strain and strain rate (SR) at baseline and during low-dose DSE within akinetic segments on the apical images.. Results. Low-dose DSE detected viability in 24 out of 48 akinetic segments. The viable segments showed better ...
Medical procedures could be executed on mass lesions or to do away with objects that have penetrated the brain. Mass lesions which include contusions or hematomas causing a major mass impact (shift of intracranial buildings) are viewed as emergencies and therefore are eliminated surgically.[fifteen] For intracranial hematomas, the collected blood might be removed applying suction or forceps or it might be floated off with drinking water.[15] Surgeons search for hemorrhaging blood vessels and seek to manage bleeding.[15] In penetrating brain injury, weakened tissue is surgically debrided, and craniotomy could possibly be get more info essential ...
Scientists from Northwestern University in Illinois claim they have discovered a connection between head trauma and a persons unwillingness to accept new ideas - a link, researchers say, makes some people more zealous about their faith.. Writing in the journal Neuropsychologia, the studys lead neurologist, Jordan Grafman, says that religious "flexibility" is dependent on the health of the area of the brain governing "openness.". After consulting a registry of around 2,000 US soldiers who had suffered head trauma during the Vietnam War, Grafman conducted tests - including a religious fundamentalism scale - on 119 veterans who had experienced penetrating brain injuries.. Grafmans team then used CT scans to identify lesions on the area of participants brains known as the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. This area is thought to play a cognitive role in critical thinking, problem-solving, planning, and spiritual experiences.. Article here. ...
title:A Morphometric Analysis of Fourth Ventrical of Human Cadaveric Brain by Plastination. Author:Akbari V J, Saiyad S S, Pandya A M, Solanki S V, Dangar K P. Keywords:4th Ventricle, Plastination, Luminal cast, Morphometry. Type:Original Article. Abstract:The fourth ventricle enlarges in various conditions like hydrocephalus, dementias, mutism etc. So, it is necessary to know the normal range of dimensions of forth ventricle. Present study was conducted at anatomy Dept. P.D.U. medical college, Rajkot, Gujarat during October 2009 to October 2010. The casts of ventricular system of 20 formalinized cadaveric human brains were prepared after injecting epoxyresin+hardener (BOND TITE) mixture. From the cast, measurements of height (from upper end of impression of superior medullary valum to obex) and breadth (at the level of lateral recesses) of 4th ventricle were taken by vernier caliper. The data was analyzed statistically and was compared with the data obtained from radiological methods. In ...

The moral economy of Belle Époque France is analyzed by means of four case studies. The fierce discussion on the vie chère, the heavy increase in prices since 1896, will allow to cover the classic problem of subsistence and of a just price. In a second step, the perspective will be narrowed to the Paris quarter of les Halles, the central markets of the capital. Everyday transactions with goods and food products took place in a context of local and social proximity and were completed face to face. Traditional codes of conduct may have persisted, although conflicts and irregularities were a daily occurrence. A third case study will approach the problem ex negativo by analyzing the failure and personal crisis of the commerçant honnête: his insolvency and bankruptcy. Finally, financial capitalism and its practices will appear on stage. The fourth case study will pay attention to the appropriation and adaption of financial practices by small investors and savers. Their desire to participate in ...
Opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome (OMS) is well known as a paraneoplastic syndrome or as a parainfectious neurologic complication. However, OMS associated with a neurodegenerative disorder has not been described previously. A 48-year-old woman had been diagnosed as multiple system atrophy-parkinsonian type (MSA-P) based on the findings of dopamine non-responsive parkinsonism with autonomic failure and typical findings on magnetic resonance imaging 5 years ago. She exhibited recurrent asynchronous and arrhythmic myoclonic movements of the upper limbs and abdomen with a very short duration, and involuntary eye movements, which were repetitive, rapid, random, multidirectional, conjugate saccades of irregular amplitude and frequency at rest. Based on hematological and radiological findings, the diagnosis was advanced MSA-P associated with OMS. As far as we are aware, there have not been any previous reports of such a case.
The accurate identification of taxa from mixed assemblages using genetic analysis remains an important field of molecular biology research. The common principle behind the development of numerous documented genetic detection technologies is to exploit specific nucleotide sequences inherent to each taxon. This body of work focuses on practical applications of real-time nucleic acid sequence-based amplification (RT-NASBA) in marine science, and is presented in four case studies. Each study represents novel work in the genetic identification of respective taxa of interest using RT-NASBA. Two case studies documented the development of an assay targeting mitochondrial 16S rRNA to discern legally salable grouper species in the U.S. from fraudulently mislabeled surrogate fish. This technology was first validated using lab-based, benchtop instrumentation, and was then adapted into a complete field detection system. The third study documented an internally controlled RT-NASBA (IC-NASBA) assay for the
Opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome is a well recognised disease in children. The aetiology, except for neuroblastoma accounting for a few patients, remains unknown.1 Viral infection is one of the presumed physiopathological mechanisms. We report a case of opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome due to enterovirus infection with spontaneous remission, no recurrence, and full recovery after 36 months follow up.. A two year old girl, with a previously normal development, exhibited acute ataxia after a two day history of fever and vomiting. One day later, she developed myoclonic jerks and opsoclonus. Initially, she was febrile (39°C), irritable, and unable to sit or to stand because of truncal ataxia. There was resistance to neck flexion. Rapid irregular and oscillatory eye movements were seen with continual myoclonus of the neck and limbs. Enterovirus RNA was detected in CSF at day 3 by polymerase chain reaction (PCR).2 The CSF, on day 3, contained 113 leucocytes/mm3 (98% lymphocytes and 2% polymorphonuclear ...
Background: Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis is a recently described life-threatening autoimmune disorder associated with a characteristic multi-stage neuropsychiatric syndrome. Although it is known that the majority of patients experience neuropsychological disturbance post-treatment, some aspects of the cognitive profile remain unclear. Methods: This study sought to investigate patterns of cognitive functioning in a sample of anti-NMDAR encephalitis patients. Seven (6F:1M; mean age, 26.4 years; range, 16-37 years) treated patients completed a comprehensive set of neurocognitive and social functioning measures. Performance was analyzed using normative data (where available), and comparison with matched controls (10F:4M; mean age, 25.8 years; range, 16-38 years). Results: Individual cognitive profiles ranged from within normal limits to extensive dysfunction. Relative to controls, the patient groups performance was affected in the domains of verbal/ visual memory, working ...
Watershed infarcts involve the junction of the distal fields of 2 nonanastomosing arterial systems. Classic neuropathologic studies1 describe 2 distinct supratentorial WS areas: (1) between the cortical territories of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA), middle cerebral artery (MCA), and posterior cerebral artery (PCA); and (2) in the white matter along and slightly above the lateral ventricle, between the deep and the superficial arterial systems of the MCA, or between the superficial systems of the MCA and ACA. The former, superficial areas have been commonly referred to as the cortical watershed (CWS), and the latter have been referred to as the internal watershed (IWS).. In autopsy studies, CWS and IWS infarcts-also termed external and internal border-zone infarcts, respectively-together represent ≈10% of all brain infarcts.2 However, because WS infarction is seldom fatal, this is probably an underestimate, and imaging studies in severe internal carotid artery (ICA) disease report an ...

  • Other causes of akinetic mutism are as follows: Respiratory arrest and cerebral hypoxia Acute cases of encephalitis lethargica Meningitis Hydrocephalus Trauma Tumors Aneurysms Olfactory groove meningioma Cyst in third ventricle Toxical lesions and infections of central nervous system Delayed post-hypoxic leukoencephalopathy (DPHL) Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (mesencephalic form) Akinetic mutism can be misdiagnosed as depression, delirium, or locked-in syndrome, all of which are common following a stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similarly to akinetic mutism, patients with locked-in syndrome experience paralysis and can only communicate with their eyes. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, akinetic mutism most often appears in two different forms: frontal and mesencephalic. (wikipedia.org)
  • Akinetic mutism as a result of frontal lobe damage is clinically characterized as hyperpathic. (wikipedia.org)
  • Akinetic mutism is often the result of severe frontal lobe injury in which the pattern of inhibitory control is one of increasing passivity and gradually decreasing speech and motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • In one case, a 59-year-old woman was administered intravenous magnesium sulfate in an attempt to resolve her akinetic mutism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lack of motor function (but not paralysis) Lack of speech Apathy Slowness Disinhibition Akinetic mutism can be caused by a variety of things. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients with depression can experience apathy, slurring of speech, and body movements similar to akinetic mutism. (wikipedia.org)
