RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A syndrome characterized by a TONIC PUPIL that occurs in combination with decreased lower extremity reflexes. The affected pupil will respond more briskly to accommodation than to light (light-near dissociation) and is supersensitive to dilute pilocarpine eye drops, which induce pupillary constriction.

The association of sterile inflammatory bone lesions and neutrophilic skin eruptions is indicative of this syndrome.
Semiautonomous, self-reproducing organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of all cells of most, but not all, eukaryotes. Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER).

Disorders that feature impairment of eye movements as a primary manifestation of disease. These conditions may be divided into infranuclear, nuclear, and supranuclear disorders. Diseases of the eye muscles or oculomotor cranial nerves (III, IV, and VI) are considered infranuclear. Nuclear disorders are caused by disease of the oculomotor, trochlear, or abducens nuclei in the BRAIN STEM. Supranuclear disorders are produced by dysfunction of higher order sensory and motor systems that control eye movements, including neural networks in the CEREBRAL CORTEX; BASAL GANGLIA; CEREBELLUM; and BRAIN STEM. Ocular torticollis refers to a head tilt that is caused by an ocular misalignment. Opsoclonus refers to rapid, conjugate oscillations of the eyes in multiple directions, which may occur as a parainfectious or paraneoplastic condition (e.g., OPSOCLONUS-MYOCLONUS SYNDROME).

Idiopathic spinal cord herniation: value of MR phase-contrast imaging. (1/30)

We report two patients with an idiopathic transdural spinal cord herniation at the thoracic level. Phase-contrast MR imaging was helpful in showing an absence of CSF flow ventral to the herniated cord and a normal CSF flow pattern dorsal to the cord, which excluded a compressive posterior arachnoid cyst.  (+info)

High cervical disc herniation and Brown-Sequard syndrome. A case report and review of the literature. (2/30)

We describe a rare herniation of the disc at the C2/C3 level in a 73-year-old woman. It caused hemicompression of the spinal cord and led to the Brown-Sequard syndrome. The condition was diagnosed clinically and by MRI six months after onset. Discectomy and fusion gave complete neurological resolution.  (+info)

Cardiovascular responses to static exercise in patients with Brown-Sequard syndrome. (3/30)

1. The purpose of this study was to determine the contributions of central command and the exercise pressor reflex in regulating the cardiovascular response to static exercise in patients with Brown-Sequard syndrome. In this rare condition, a hemisection of the spinal cord typically leaves one side of the body with diminished sensation and normal motor function and the other side with diminished motor function and normal sensation. 2. Four, otherwise healthy, patients with Brown-Sequard syndrome and varying degrees of motor and sensory dysfunction were studied during four isometric knee extension protocols involving both voluntary contraction and electrically stimulated contractions of each leg. Heart rate, blood pressure, force production and ratings of perceived exertion were measured during all conditions. Measurements were also made during post-contraction thigh cuff occlusion and during a cold pressor test. 3. With the exception of electrical stimulation of the leg with a sensory deficit, protocols yielded increases in heart rate and blood pressure. Cuff occlusion sustained blood pressure above resting levels only when the leg had intact sensation. 4. While voluntary contraction (or attempted contraction) of the leg with a motor deficit produced the lowest force, it produced the highest ratings of perceived exertion coupled with the greatest elevations in heart rate and blood pressure. 5. These data show that the magnitude of the heart rate and blood pressure responses in these patients was greatly affected by an increased central command; however, there were marked cardiovascular responses due to activation of the exercise pressor reflex in the absence of central command.  (+info)

Traumatic invagination of the fourth and fifth cervical laminae with acute hemiparesis. (4/30)

We describe a patient with traumatic right-sided invagination of two consecutive laminae into the spinal canal. The injury resembled a greenstick fracture and resulted in an acute Brown-Sequard syndrome. There was also an undisplaced hangman's fracture of the axis vertebra. These injuries were caused by an acute hyperextension and axial compression of the cervical spine. Open reduction and internal fixation of the laminar fractures without fusion was followed by full neurological recovery within six weeks.  (+info)

A case of Brown-Sequard syndrome with associated Horner's syndrome after blunt injury to the cervical spine. (5/30)

A 26 year old motorcyclist was received by the trauma team in our accident and emergency department after a head on collision with a motor vehicle. He had been correctly immobilised and his primary survey was essentially normal. He was alert and orientated with a Glasgow Coma score of 15 and had no symptoms or signs of spinal injury. His cervical spine radiography was also normal. Neurological examination however, revealed anisocoria, his left pupil being smaller than his right, and a Brown-Sequard syndrome, with a sensory level at C6. Immobilisation was maintained and he was transferred to the regional neurosurgical centre where magnetic resonance imaging revealed a contusion of the left half of the spinal cord adjacent to the 6th cervical vertebrae. Computed tomography revealed no bony injury but spinal column instability was demonstrated after flexion-extension spinal views and he underwent surgery to fuse his spine at the C5-C6 level. This report highlights the necessity to observe strict ATLS guidelines. This must include a thorough examination of the central and peripheral nervous system where spinal injury is suspected, even in the absence of radiographic abnormality and neck pain. This article also presents the unusual phenomena of Brown-Sequard syndrome and unilateral Horner's syndrome after blunt traumatic injury to the cervical spine.  (+info)

Idiopathic spinal cord herniation associated with calcified thoracic disc extrusion--case report. (6/30)

A 48-year-old man presented with idiopathic spinal cord herniation associated with calcified thoracic disc extrusion at the T7-8 intervertebral level, manifesting as Brown-Sequard syndrome at the thoracic level persisting for 20 years. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography myelography revealed ventral displacement of the spinal cord and extrusion of a calcified disc at the T7-8 intervertebral level. At surgery, the spinal cord herniation at this level was released from the dura mater and carefully returned to the dural sac. An extruded calcified thoracic disc was found just below the dural defect at the same level. The development of idiopathic spinal cord herniation is associated closely with a defect in the ventral dura mater of unknown etiology. In our case, the etiology of the ventral dural defect was probably associated with the calcified thoracic disc extrusion.  (+info)

Brown-Sequard syndrome after blunt cervical spine trauma: clinical and radiological correlations. (7/30)

The objective of this study was to describe clinical and radiological features of a series of patients presenting with Brown-Sequard syndrome after blunt spinal trauma and to determine whether a correlation exists between cervical plain films, CT, MRI and the clinical presentation and neurological outcome. A retrospective review was done of the medical records and analysis of clinical and radiological features of patients diagnosed of BSS after blunt cervical spine trauma and admitted to our hospital between 1995 and 2005. Ten patients were collected for study, three with upper- and seven with lower-cervical spine fracture. ASIA impairment scale and motor score were determined on admission and at last follow-up (6 months-9 years, mean 30 months). Patients with lower cervical spine fracture presented with laminar fracture ipsilateral to the side of cord injury in five out of six cases. T2-weighted hyperintensity was present in seven patients showing a close correlation with neurological deficit in terms of side and level but not with the severity of motor deficit. Patients with Brown-Sequard syndrome secondary to blunt cervical spine injury commonly presented T2-weighted hyperintensity in the clinically affected hemicord. A close correlation was observed between these signal changes in the MR studies and the neurologic level. Effacement of the anterior cervical subarachnoid space was present in all patients, standing as a highly sensitive but very nonspecific finding. In the present study, craniocaudal extent of T2-weighted hyperintensity of the cord failed to demonstrate a positive correlation with neurological impairment.  (+info)

Focal akinetic seizures as the only clinical manifestation of partial epilepsy. (8/30)

Episodic hemipareis is usually thought to have a vascular etiology. Ictal paresis during seizures usually occurs with other clinical signs. The exact mechanism by which weakness occurs during seizures is difficult to determine as positive and negative motor phenomenona occur in rapid succession. This case describes a girl with episodic ictal hemiparesis since infancy as the only clinical seizure manifestation with VEEG suggesting mesial frontal ictal onset.  (+info)

Charles-Edouard Brown-Sequard, French physiologist and neurologist (1817-1894). Brown-Sequard studied medicine in Paris. He was professor of physiology and pathology at Harvard and subsequently taught in New York, London and Paris. He is best known for his work on the adrenal gland. In his experiments on hormonal secretions, he demon- strated the connection between excision of the adrenal glands and Addisons disease. He worked on the spinal cord and discovered the Brown- Sequard syndrome (crossed hemiplegia). He worked with various hormones, but his claim to have reversed his own ageing by injecting himself with dog testicular extracts is no longer accepted. - Stock Image H402/0163

Conclusion For most symptomatic spinal CM lesions, microsurgical resection is the treatment of choice when feasible. Microsurgical resection controls further bleeding and can prevent further neurological deterioration. Surgical resection is usually performed six weeks after hemorrhage to allow for resolution of cord edema, and for the development of a gliotic plane between the CM and surface of the cord via which resection may be performed.

Avantika Naidu, David Brown, Elliot Roth. Background: Body weight support treadmill training protocols in conjunction with other modalities are commonly used to improve poststroke balance and walking function. However, typical body weight support paradigms tend to use consistently stable balance conditions, often with handrail support and or manual assistance. Objective: In this paper, we describe our study protocol, which involved 2 unique body weight support treadmill training paradigms of similar training intensity that integrated dynamic balance challenges to help improve ambulatory function post stroke. The first paradigm emphasized walking without any handrails or manual assistance, that is, hands-free walking, and served as the control group, whereas the second paradigm incorporated practicing 9 essential challenging mobility skills, akin to environmental barriers encountered during community ambulation along with hands-free walking (ie hands-free + challenge walking). Methods: We ...
In 2015, 2-year-old Dilon had a spinal cord stroke due to complications from surgery, causing paralysis from the waist down. Life completed turned upside down, said Valarie, Dilons mother. Hospitals in Dilons native New Mexico had no experience with pediatric spinal cord injuries, according to his mother, who even searched for resources in Colorado and all over the U.S. They just told me this is your new life, get used to it. I would ask questions and all they could say was we dont know. I had lost all hope until I saw a commercial for Shriners Hospitals for Children on television.

N2 - Background: Because of the lack of long-term postoperative follow-up studies of idiopathic spinal cord herniation (ISCH), there is little information about the long-term effectiveness and complications of the dural defect enlargement in patients with ISCH. The purpose of this study is to determine the long-term effectiveness of this procedure. Methods: Sixteen patients with ISCH were treated surgically by enlargement of the dural defect. The patients neurological status and surgical outcome were evaluated by the JOA scores for thoracic myelopathy and the recovery rate (mean follow-up period 9.6 years). Correlations between the surgical outcomes and patients age and duration of disease ...

press release Goetz, C. G. (2000). Battle of the titans - Charcot and Brown-Sequard on cerebral localization. Neurology, 54(9), 1840-1847. Objective: To examine the differing views of Jean-Martin Charcot and Charles Edouard Brown-Sequard-two celebrated neuroscientists of the nineteenth century-on cerebral localization as exemplified in their controversial debate of 1875 at the Societe de Biologie in Paris. Background: As clinicopathologic correlations were developed in the mid and late nineteenth century, cerebral localization was a primary topic of debate at scientific, social, and religious levels. Charcot, representing an anatomic approach to research, and Brown-Sequard, representing a physiologic perspective, disagreed fundamentally on the importance of cerebral localization to normal behavior and neurologic illness. Methods: The minutes of the Societe de Biologie meetings of 1875 and 1876, as well as primary archive documents from the Archives Nationales de 1Academie des Sciences and the ...

Professor Brown-Sequard recently read a most remarkable paper before the Biological Society of Paris. The aged professor believes he has discovered the secret of perpetual youth. The source is in young animals, guinea pigs, dogs, etc. - from which, while under the influence of anaesthetics, he abstracts organic matter, reduces it to a pulp in a mortar, dissolves all that is soluble in water, then subjects this solution to further chemical action, and finally injects it under the skin of the arm in doses of 1 c.c. at a time. The professor injected the matter into his own arm, and he reports that on the day after he had taken two injections, he felt completely transformed. He could work better, sleep better, and digest his food more perfectly. His appetite improved, and he gained 14 1bs. in weight. It true, these results may well be called extraordinary ...
Do you know why Sigmund Freud, esteemed psychoanalyst, had a vasectomy when he was 67 years old? How about William Butler Yeats, the famed writer, having his vasectomy at 69 years of age. Were they that sexually active and worried about conceiving? God bless them if this is true!. Hardly. Believe it or not, vasectomies were done in the roaring twenties and thirties in Austria by an endocrinologist named Steinach for physical and mental rejuvenation. It revived my creative power, wrote Yeats in 1937. This may be true as Yeats wrote a crop of poems during this period that rank with his best work. At that time, a vasectomy was considered the holy grail of perpetual youth. Steinach felt that by blocking sperm flow, male hormone production in the testis would improve.. The idea of hormonal rejuvenation really started in earnest with an acclaimed endocrinologist named Brown-Sequard who in 1889 injected himself with testicular extracts from rats and dogs. This led to the trend of organotherapy in ...

The spinal cord is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid (spinal fluid) throughout its course in the spinal canal. The spinal fluid serves as a buffer of fluid that surrounds the spinal cord providing protection and insulation from movements and trauma to the body. The spinal fluid is kept in place by two thin membranes- the arachnoid and dura. The arachnoid is a very thin see through membrane that is suspended in the spinal fluid while the dura is a slightly thicker and stronger membrane that surrounds the spinal fluid space.. A ventral spinal cord herniation may occur if a breach or weakness of the dura occurs. Spinal fluid can leak through this opening causing headaches as part of a condition called spontaneous intracranial hypotension. In rare circumstances, the spinal cord may be pushed forward and protrude through the breach in the dura to produce a ventral spinal cord herniation. This condition usually occurs in the thoracic spine and can cause numbness and weakness in the legs with walking ...

Cerebral Palsy (CP) describes a group of chronic conditions affecting body movement and muscle coordination caused by damage to one or more areas of the brain, usually occurring during fetal development or infancy. The motor disorders of CP are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, cognition, communication, perception, behavior, and/or a seizure disorder. One of the most disabling mobility impairments in CP is gait impairment, clinically characterized by reduced speed and endurance, as well as reduced step, stride length and toe clearance during gait.. Recently, gait rehabilitation methods in patients with neurological impairment have relied on technological devices, which drive the patients gait in a body-weight support condition and emphasize the beneficial role of repetitive practice. The rationale for these approaches originates from animal studies which have shown that repetition of gait movements may enhance spinal and supraspinal locomotor circuit.. Early studies in gait ...
A 44-year-old woman was examined for progressive left lower extremity weakness and spasticity. Thoracic spine MR imaging and CT myelography showed a ventral dural defect at T7-T8 with an extradural subarachnoid fluid collection and extradural herniation of the spinal cord. Intraoperative sonography confirmed the appropriate level for dural entry and the finding of spinal cord herniation. After reduction of the herniated spinal cord, the patient experienced gradual improvement in neurologic function. ...

Spinal cord herniation (SCH) is a rare cause of myelopathy. When reported, SCH has most commonly been described as occurring spontaneously in the thoracic spine, and being idiopathic in nature (anterior thoracic spinal cord herniation, ATSCH) [1-3]. Several theories have been proposed to explain its occurrence, including congenital, inflammatory, and traumatic etiologies alike [1-4]. Even more rarely, SCH has been described to occur in the cervical spine in association with brachial plexus avulsion injuries (BPAI-SCH). In our accompanying article, Late Cervical Spinal Cord Herniation Resulting from Post-Traumatic Brachial Plexus Avulsion Injury, two cases of BPAI-SCH are presented and discussed in the context of the reviewed literature [5]. Here, pertinent accompanying follow-up data was collected and is presented for the cases, including postoperative radiographic outcome imaging. Furthermore, a table is presented comparing and contrasting ATSCH to BPAI-SCH. Although the two phenomena have been

Cervical discs are soft tissue spacers located between the vertebral bones of the neck. They function like shock absorbers, and allow for normal neck movement.. Sometimes intervertebral discs break down and herniate or protrude beyond their normal borders. These herniations or protrusionscan compress and irritate the adjacent spinal cord and nerve roots resulting in neurologic symptoms called radiculopathy or myelopathy.. Common symptoms of cervical disc herniation and stenosis frequently include neck pain and radiating pain and numbness through the shoulder, down the arm, and into the hand.. More severe cases compressing the spinal cord can result in muscle weakness, clumsy hands, balance problems, and unsteady gait, and urinary dysfunctions.. ...
