Neurologic complications of systemic cancer. (1/1158)

Neurologic complications occur frequently in patients with cancer. After routine chemotherapy, these complications are the most common reason for hospitalization of these patients. Brain metastases are the most prevalent complication, affecting 20 to 40 percent of cancer patients and typically presenting as headache, altered mental status or focal weakness. Other common metastatic complications are epidural spinal cord compression and leptomeningeal metastases. Cord compression can be a medical emergency, and the rapid institution of high-dose corticosteroid therapy, radiation therapy or surgical decompression is often necessary to preserve neurologic function. Leptomeningeal metastases should be suspected when a patient presents with neurologic dysfunction in more than one site. Metabolic encephalopathy is the common nonmetastatic cause of altered mental status in cancer patients. Cerebrovascular complications such as stroke or hemorrhage can occur in a variety of tumor-related conditions, including direct invasion, coagulation disorders, chemotherapy side effects and nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis. Radiation therapy is the most commonly employed palliative measure for metastases. Chemotherapy or surgical removal of tumors is used in selected patients.  (+info)

Loss of 123I-MIBG uptake by the heart in Parkinson's disease: assessment of cardiac sympathetic denervation and diagnostic value. (2/1158)

Myocardial imaging with 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) was performed on 35 patients with Parkinson's disease and 24 control subjects to evaluate cardiac sympathetic function in patients with Parkinson's disease, verify this phenomenon and examine whether myocardial MIBG uptake and clearance are correlated with the clinical severity of Parkinson's disease. METHODS: We studied 35 patients with Parkinson's disease and 24 control subjects with other central nervous system diseases. The latter group consisted of 12 subjects with other neurodegenerative disorders (4 with spinocerebellar degeneration, 2 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, 3 with progressive supranuclear palsy and 3 with corticobasal degeneration and 12 patients with cerebral infarction (CI), 6 with vascular parkinsonism and 6 without it. Early and delayed images of the anterior view were obtained 15 min and 4 h after injection of 123I-MIBG, respectively. MIBG uptake was quantified by calculating a heart-to-mediastinum count (H/M) ratio. RESULTS: The H/M ratio was markedly reduced in the patients with Parkinson's disease (II to V on the Hoehn and Yahr scale) compared with the control subjects. None of the subjects with neurodegenerative diseases showed a marked decrease in myocardial MIBG uptake nor did any subject with CI. CONCLUSION: Our findings indicate that, in Parkinson's disease, a reduction in myocardial MIBG uptake is a very common, specific phenomenon that can be used to detect cardiac autonomic dysfunction to diagnose Parkinson's disease, particularly in patients without typical signs and symptoms.  (+info)

A five-year assessment of controlled trials of in-patient and out-patient treatment and of plaster-of-Paris jackets for tuberculosis of the spine in children on standard chemotherapy. Studies in Masan and Pusan, Korea. Fifth report of the Medical Research Council Working Party on tuberculosis of the spine. (3/1158)

In two centres in Korea 350 patients with a diagnosis of tuberculosis of the thoracic and/or lumbar spine were allocated at random: in Masan to in-patient rest in bed (IP) for six months followed by out-patient treatment or to ambulatory out-patient treatment (OP) from the start; in Pusan to out-patient treatment with a plaster-of-Paris jacket (J) for nine months or to ambulatory treatment without any support (No J). All patients recieved chemotherapy with PAS with isoniazid for eighteen months, either supplemented with streptomycin for the first three months (SPH) or without this supplement (PH), by random allocation. The main analysis of this report concerns 299 patients (eighty-three IP, eighty-three OP, sixty-three J, seventy No J; 143 SPH, 156 PH). Pre-treatment factors were similar in both centres except that the patients in Pusan had, on average, less extensive lesions although in a greater proportion the disease was radiographically active. One patient (J/SPH) died with active spinal disease and three (all No J/SPH) with paraplegia. A fifth patient (IP/PH) who died from cardio respiratory failure also had pulmonary tuberculosis. Twenty-three patients required operation and/or additional chemotherapy for the spinal lesion. A sinus or clinically evident abscess was either present initially or developed during treatment in 41 per cent of patients. Residual lesions persisted in ten patients (four IP, two OP, one J, three No J; six SPH, four PH) at five years. Thirty-two patients had paraparesis on admission or developing later. Complete resolution occurred in twenty on the allocated regimen and in eight after operation or additional chemotherapy or both. Of the remaining four atients, all of whom had operation and additional chemotherapy, three died and one still had paraparesis at five years. Of 295 patients assessed at five years 89 per cent had a favourable status. The proportions of the patients responding favourably were similar in the IP (91 per cent) and OP (89 per cent) series, in the J (90 per cent) and No J (84 per cent) series and in the SPH (86 per cent) and PH (92 per cent) series.  (+info)

Fatal outcome due to cyclosporine neurotoxicity with associated pathological findings. (4/1158)

We present a case of death likely to be directly due to cyclosporine (CsA) neurotoxicity. To date, there have been no reports of deaths directly due to CsA neurotoxicity, nor has an associated histological lesion been described independent of confounding processes. A 54-year-old male received an HLA-matched-unrelated BMT for CML. He developed progressive encephalopathy and on day +79 had a generalized seizure. All CSF studies were negative for infectious causes. MRI revealed diffuse, symmetrical white matter abnormalities located in the occipital sub-cortex, thalamus, mid brain, pons, and cerebellum which were typical of CsA toxicity. The patient died of central respiratory failure within 72 h of discontinuing CsA. Autopsy revealed diffuse patchy white matter edema and astrocytic injury without evidence of axonopathy, demyelination, microvascular injury, or infectious/inflammatory process. This case demonstrates previously undescribed lethal CsA neurotoxicity and may reveal an associated primary pathological lesion.  (+info)

Molecular pathway involved in HIV-1-induced CNS pathology: role of viral regulatory protein, Tat. (5/1158)

The broad range of histological lesions associated with HIV-1 are somewhat subtle relative to the clinical manifestations that occur as a result of HIV infection. Although it is clear that HIV has a causative role in CNS disease, dementia appears to be a consequence of the infiltration of inflammatory cells and cytokine dysregulation rather than the amount of virus in CNS. The HIV transregulatory protein Tat plays an important intracellular as well as extracellular role in the dysregulation of cytokines. The cytokines and possibly chemokines that are induced by Tat modify the action of astrocytes such that the survival of neurons is compromised. Pathogenetic alteration induced by Tat involves a series of interactions between circulating monocyte/macrophages, endothelial cells, and astrocytes. Cytokine dysregulation induced by viral infection and extracellular Tat leads to alterations in expression of adhesion molecules and promotes migration of non-infected inflammatory cells into the CNS compartment. We demonstrate here that recombinant HIV-1 Tat protein introduced by stereotaxic injection into mouse brain can induce pathologically relevant alterations including macrophage invasion as well as astrocytosis. The mechanism of destruction of the CNS by Tat appears to involve autocrine and paracrine pathways that depend not only on Tat, but cytokine and chemokine signaling pathways that are altered by viral infection. In this review, we discuss various pathogenic effects of Tat in brain cells and provide experimental evidence for an increased TNF-alpha level in CSF in mice injected intracerebrally with Tat protein.  (+info)

Central nervous system sarcoidosis--diagnosis and management. (6/1158)

A series of 68 patients with neurosarcoidosis is reported, with particular emphasis on clinical aspects, diagnosis and treatment. A classification system based on clinical diagnostic probability is proposed, consisting of probable and definite disease, the latter being dependent on finding sarcoid granulomas on nervous system histology, which was obtained in 12 patients (18%). The role of investigations, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), chest radiography, Kveim skin test, Gallium 67 isotope scanning and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) studies, is considered. Sixty-two percent of patients presented with nervous system disease, most commonly affecting the optic nerve and chiasm. Other common presentations included cranial nerve palsies, spinal cord and brainstem manifestations. Investigations yielding most diagnostic information included the Kveim test (41/48, 85% positive), raised CSF protein and/or cells (50/62, 81%) and gallium 67 scan (14/31, 45%). Eleven out of 29 patients (38%) patients showed meningeal enhancement on MRI scanning and 43% of scans demonstrated multiple white-matter lesions. Mean follow-up for the group was 4.6 years. Forty-seven patients were seen for > 18 months, and over half of these patients progressed despite corticosteroid and other immunosuppressive therapies. The benefit of a large patient database prospectively studied, with extended follow-up is discussed in order to learn more about prognosis and advance therapy in neurosarcoidosis.  (+info)

Complications of varicella in a defined central European population. (7/1158)

AIMS: To describe complications of varicella requiring hospitalisation in a defined population (canton of Bern) and to compare the hospitalisation rates for varicella with published data. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of hospital records of patients less than 16 years of age admitted with complications of varicella to the hospitals serving this population (University Children's Hospital of Bern and the Wildermeth Children's Hospital of Biel, Switzerland), and calculation of hospitalisation rates for varicella and its complications based on birth rates and varicella antibody prevalence rates. RESULTS: From 1986 to 1996, 113 cases (median age, 5.6 years) were identified. Younger siblings were overrepresented (odds ratio (OR), 1.42; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.09 to 1.84). Central nervous system (CNS) complications (26 patients; 23%) were found predominantly in previously healthy children (relative risk, 7.1; 95% CI, 1.01 to 49.86). Group A beta haemolytic streptococci were recovered from only one of 35 patients with bacterial complications. The hospitalisation rates for primary varicella (9.2/10(4) cases; 95% CI, 7.4 to 11/10(4), skin infections (2.0/10(4) cases; 95% CI, 1.2 to 2.9/10(4), and pneumonia (0.8/10(4) cases; 95% CI, 0.3 to 1.3/10(4)) were significantly lower than reported previously. The CNS complication rate (2.2/10(4) cases; 95% CI, 1.3 to 3.1/10(4) was among the highest rates reported. CONCLUSIONS: The low hospitalisation rate in comparison with studies from elsewhere indicates that there is a large regional variability in complications associated with varicella. Such data should be taken into consideration when local varicella immunisation strategies are developed.  (+info)

C10 is a novel chemokine expressed in experimental inflammatory demyelinating disorders that promotes recruitment of macrophages to the central nervous system. (8/1158)

Chemokines may be important in the control of leukocytosis in inflammatory disorders of the central nervous system. We studied cerebral chemokine expression during the evolution of diverse neuroinflammatory disorders in transgenic mice with astrocyte glial fibrillary acidic protein-targeted expression of the cytokines IL-3, IL-6, or IFN-alpha and in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Distinct chemokine gene expression patterns were observed in the different central nervous system inflammatory models that may determine the phenotype and perhaps the functions of the leukocytes that traffic into the brain. Notably, high expression of C10 and C10-related genes was found in the cerebellum and spinal cord of GFAP-IL3 mice with inflammatory demyelinating disease and in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. In both these neuroinflammatory models, C10 RNA and protein expressing cells were predominantly macrophage/microglia and foamy macrophages present within demyelinating lesions as well as in perivascular infiltrates and meninges. Intracerebroventricular injection of recombinant C10 protein promoted the recruitment of large numbers of Mac-1(+) cells and, to a much lesser extent, CD4(+) lymphocytes into the meninges, choroid plexus, ventricles, and parenchyma of the brain. Thus, C10 is a prominent chemokine expressed in the central nervous system in experimental inflammatory demyelinating disease that, we show, also acts as a potent chemotactic factor for the migration of these leukocytes to the brain.  (+info)

Pernicious anemia (PA) is an autoimmune disease characterized by atrophic gastritis and deficiency in intrinsic factor leading to impairment of vitamin B12 absorption in the ileum. Anemia is commonly found in rheumatoid arthritis (RA); however, PA is rarely found in RA. There are few reports describing patients with both conditions; none in Korea to date. We report on a case of a 46-year-old female who presented with hypesthesia and general weakness. She was previously diagnosed as seropositive RA with myelodysplastic syndrome. She had severely impaired sensation, especially for vibration and proprioception in all limbs. Subacute combined degeneration was observed on her magnetic resonance imaging and serum vitamin B12 level was very low. Further exam results were consistent with PA and her symptoms improved with cobalamin injection. This case demonstrates that PA should be considered in RA patients presenting with both central nervous system manifestations and anemia. ...

Objectives/Hypothesis: The introduction of intranasal pedicled flaps has reduced the incidence of postoperative cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks to less than 5%. Nevertheless, in malignant tumors those flaps are not always available because of nasal septum invasion. Minimally invasive pericranial flaps (PCF) are associated with minimal adverse effects and good cosmetic appearance. In spite of that, there are only a few reports of this reconstructive technic limited to short surgical series and radio-anatomical analysis. Clinical results of a surgical cohort are presented. Study Design: Cohort prospective study. Methods: Clinical data, including age, gender, stage, histopathological findings, rate of complications and appearance of PCF at fifth day and two months postoperative were recorded. Postoperative morbidities were recorded as wound abnormalities, nasosinusal, orbital and central nervous system complications. Chi-squared test was used to correlate qualitative variables and Student-t-test to

The global burden of neurological, neuropsychiatric, substance-use and neurodevelopmental disorders in low- and middle-income countries is worsened, not only by the lack of targeted research funding, but also by the lack of relevant in-country research capacity. Such capacity, from the individual to the national level, is necessary to address the problems within a local context. As for many health issues in these countries, the ability to address this burden requires development of research infrastructure and a trained cadre of clinicians and scientists who can ask the right questions, and conduct, manage, apply and disseminate research for practice and policy. This Review describes some of the evolving issues, knowledge and programmes focused on building research capacity in low- and middle-income countries in general and for brain and nervous system disorders in particular.

AB - There has been substantial recent interest in the development of bioelectronic medicines (also known as "electroceuticals") [1]. Bioelectronic medicines consist of implantable devices capable of treating diseases by modulation of the nervous system. While substantial progress has been made in the treatment of some central nervous system disorders such as Parkinsons Disease by deep brain stimulation [2], recently attention is focused on development of neuromodulation strategies for the peripheral nervous system [3]. The development of strategies for interfacing with and modulating the activity of peripheral nerves to the viscera may offer the prospect of extending bioelectronic medicine beyond diseases of the central nervous system, to the much larger class of non-neurological diseases that can be affected by electrical signalling in the peripheral nervous system, ranging from hypertension [4] to sleep apnea [5], rheumatoid arthritis [6] and sepsis [7 ...
Local environmental conditions contribute to the activation state of cells. Extracellular matrix glycoproteins participate in cell-cell boundaries within the microvascular and extravascular tissues of the central nervous system and provide a scaffold for the local environment. These conditions are altered during focal cerebral ischemia (and other central nervous system disorders) when extracellular matrix boundaries are degraded or when matrix proteins in the vascular circulation enter the neuropil as the microvascular permeability barrier is degraded. Microglia in the resting state become activated after the onset of ischemia. During activation these cells can express a number of factors and proteases, including latent matrix metalloproteinase-9 (pro-MMP-9). Whereas MMP-9 and MMP-2 are generated early during focal ischemia in select models, their cellular sources in vivo are still under study. In vitro microglia cells activate and respond to exposure to specific matrix proteins (eg, ...

Cells attach to proteoglycans and glycoproteins on the surface of other cells as well as in the extracellular matrix (ECM) substratum via adhesion molecules to define tissue shape, structure, and function. Making and breaking cellular contacts with other cells and the ECM play critical roles in normal processes such as cell growth, division, differentiation, and migration. Cardiovascular and central nervous system disorders and pathophysiological processes such as fibrosis and inflammation require ECM remodeling. Remodeling involves expression of different cell adhesion molecules, altering cellular processes such as migration and polarity. Key ECM proteins include fibronectin, laminin, and collagens as well as metalloproteinases that remodel the ECM. Important cell adhesion genes include integrins, selectins, celladhesion molecule family members (ICAM, ECAM, NCAM, PECAM, and VCAM), and the catenins which link cell adhesion molecules and the cytoskeleton. Analysis of these essential genes may ...

Pursuit which is significantly worse in one direction than another is asymmetrical. While rare, asymmetrical pursuit is more often of clinical utility than is symmetrically reduced pursuit, because it is specific for a central nervous system disorder. One can easily detect pursuit asymmetry if a plot is available in which there is an indication of mean gain and the standard deviation in each direction. One must use a pursuit stimulus in which velocity is constant, such as the triangular wave paradigm, in order to be able to compare rightward and leftward gain.. There are several causes of asymmetrical pursuit, as listed in table 10. Patients with acute cortical lesions involving the parietal or frontal lobes, or a brainstem lesion involving the pontine nuclei may transiently exhibit better pursuit directed contralateral to their lesion. Pursuit asymmetry due to a cortical injury is rarely useful because it typically persists only for several weeks. Unidirectional spontaneous nystagmus may be ...

A number of world literature reports indicate that a latent Toxoplasma gondii infection leads to development of central nervous system disorders, which in turn may lead to altered behavior in the affected individuals. T. gondii infection has been observed to play the greatest role in drivers, suicides, and psychiatric patients. Studies conducted for this manuscript involve a different, never before really reported correlation between latent T. gondii infection and ethanol abuse. A total of 538 decedents with a known cause of death were included in the study. These individuals were divided into three groups: the risky behavior group, inconclusively risky behavior group, and control group. The criterion for this division was the likely effect of the individuals behavior on the mechanism and cause of his/her death. The material used for analyses were blood samples collected during routine medico-legal examinations in these cases. The blood samples were used to measure anti-T. gondii IgG antibodies ...

The electrical interactive communication systems of the body (nervous system) are responsible for the production of all biological and biochemical mechanisms (body functions). Neurons send signals to other cells through thin fibers called axons, which cause chemicals known as neurotransmitters to be released at junctions called synapses. Sensory neurons react to physical stimuli such as light, sound and touch and send feedback to the central nervous system about the bodys surrounding environment. Motor neurons, located in the central nervous system or in peripheral ganglia, transmit signals to activate the muscles or glands.. Interference or blockage of these necessary communication signals can disrupt normal healthy body functions, natural protections, immunosurveillance, immunoresponse and tumor suppression.. We have all experienced a loss of satellite signal and lost our favourite television show, probably in the midst of an exciting scene. What happens when the bodys communication signals ...

Disorders of the nervous system include stroke, infections, such as meningitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and functional disorders, such as headache and epilepsy.
http://www.naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=A… Vaccines are not given to children with the "accident" that they kill some children and cause neurological disorders in others; no, they are given to children BECAUSE they cause neurological disorders, organ failure, infertility, reduced intelligence and numerous other side effects. Todays vaccines create tomorrows health care customers, you see. Vaccines keep Big Pharma in business based on repeat profits How else is Big Pharma supposed to ensure its future profits if the population were actually allowed to stay healthy? The whole point of vaccines is to DAMAGE HUMAN HEALTH and rake in trillions of dollars in long-term profits from all the suffering and disease caused by those vaccines. Cmon, folks: Do you really think all these for-profit companies are trying to HELP humanity?

As you guys know, my husband has nervous system disorders which is probably associated with the remicade. Hes on 80mgs of pred and the remicade, and his next infusion is due May 22nd. However, were fairly certain given the seriousness of the nervous system disorders (possible MS triggering), that were not going to get the next infusion, and were going to stay away from biologics altogether. So, the plan right now, is to ask the neurologist to do an MRI (to see if theres any lesions on the brain), and to ask the GI to put my husband on Imuran or 6-MP, and continue the prednisone at the same dosage for a while longer, until he hits remission with Imuran/6-MP and Pred, while tracking the neurologial symptoms and hoping for a complete recovery ...

Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD) is a rare, progressive, degenerative central nervous system disorder in which coordination, motor abilities, and intellectual function deteriorate. The disease is one of a group of gene-linked disorders known as the leukodystrophies, which affect growth of the myelin sheath -- the fatty covering that wraps around and protects nerve fibers in the brain. The disease is caused by a mutation in the gene that controls the production of a myelin protein called proteolipid protein-1 (PLP1). PMD is inherited as an X-linked recessive trait; the affected individuals are male and the mothers are carriers of the PLP1 mutation. Severity and onset of the disease ranges widely, depending on the type of PLP1 mutation. PMD is one of a spectrum of diseases associated with PLP1, which also includes Spastic Paraplegia Type 2 (SPG2). The PLP1-related disorders span a continuum of neurologic symptoms that range from severe central nervous system involvement (PMD) to progressive ...
Massive bubble formation after diving can lead to decompression sickness (DCS) that can result in central nervous system disorders or even death. Bubbles alter the vascular endothelium and activate blood cells and inflammatory pathways, leading to a systemic pathophysiological process that promotes ischemic damage. Fluoxetine, a well-known antidepressant, is recognized as having anti-inflammatory properties at the systemic level, as well as in the setting of cerebral ischemia. We report a beneficial clinical effect associated with fluoxetine in experimental DCS. 91 mice were subjected to a simulated dive at 90 msw for 45 min before rapid decompression. The experimental group received 50 mg/kg of fluoxetine 18 hours before hyperbaric exposure (n = 46) while controls were not treated (n = 45). Clinical assessment took place over a period of 30 min after surfacing. At the end, blood samples were collected for blood cells counts and cytokine IL-6 detection. There were significantly fewer manifestations of

Laryngeal Electromyography (LEMG) is a diagnostic test commonly used in patients with vocal fold movement disorder The aim of this study is to describe LEMG in patients with vocalfold immobility. A total of 55 dysphonic patients with vocal fold immobility diagnosed by laryngeal endoscopy were grouped according to probable clinical cause: 1) unknown; 2) traumatic; or 3) tumoral compression. They were submitted to LEMG by percutaneous insertion of concentric needle electrode. LEMG was conclusive in all patients and showed a majority with peripheral nerve injury. LEMG diagnosed peripheral nerve damage in 25 group 1, 12 group 2, and 11 group 3 patients. LEMG was normal in 4 patients, suggesting cricoarytenoid joint fixation. Central nervous system disorders was suggested in 2 and myopathic pattern in 1. As the major cause of vocal fold immobility is peripheral nerve damage, LEMG is an important test to confirm diagnosis ...
As pointed out by Sturniolo et al.,1 there are few studies evaluating the impact of WD on peripheral nervous system function. Initial reports described predominant demyelinating involvement, whereas subsequent reports focused on axonal impairment.1 We also recently reported small fiber neuropathy mostly correlating with somatic rather than autonomic small fibers in WD patients.4 Our patients had normal nerve conduction studies, but half of them had abnormal skin wrinkling test that, similar to corneal confocal microscopy, also strongly correlated with abnormalities on intraepidermal nerve fiber density.4 Interestingly, our patients with small fiber involvement and WD also had parkinsonism. In his series, Sturniolo et al.1 included 10 patients with significant central nervous system disease and 14 patients with predominant hepatic involvement. Although the authors did not perform autonomic or nerve conduction studies, we were curious to find out whether there was a difference between the small ...
Vaccinia immune globulin (VIG) is made from the pooled blood of individuals who have been inoculated with the smallpox vaccine. The antibodies these individuals developed in response to the smallpox vaccine are removed and purified. This results in VIG. It can be administered intravenously. It is used to treat individuals who have developed progressive vaccinia after smallpox vaccination. It was also used along with cidofovirinfor the 2003 Midwest monkeypox outbreak as concomitant therapy to reduce the serious side effects of smallpox vaccine. For a small percentage of the population, the smallpox vaccine either doesnt "take" or it produces adverse events. These include postvaccinial central nervous system disease, progressive vaccinia, eczema vaccinatum, accidental implantations, "generalized vaccinia," and the common erythematous and/or urticarial rashes. In the late 1940s, Dr. Henry Kempe suggested that the solution to the complications of the smallpox vaccine was to provide antibodies in ...
