Intracerebral hemorrhage: an unusual presentation of neurosarcoidosis.

Summary of "Intracerebral hemorrhage: an unusual presentation of neurosarcoidosis."

Neurosarcoidosis has a variety of clinical presentations. Common manifestations include leptomeningeal inflammation with seizures, headache, cranial nerve palsies, hydrocephalus, or focal neurological deficits with white matter lesions or mass lesions. Stroke is relatively rare, and hemorrhage is much less common than ischemia due to vasculitis. We present a patient with histopathologically confirmed neurosarcoidosis presenting with headache, seizures, and cognitive decline with multiple recurrent primary intracerebral hemorrhages.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enlarged THYROID GLAND with at least 50% of the gland situated behind the STERNUM. It is an unusual presentation of an intrathoracic goiter. Substernal goiters frequently cause compression on the TRACHEA leading to deviation, narrowing, and respiratory symptoms.

Class I-restricted activation of CD8-POSITIVE LYMPHOCYTES resulting from ANTIGEN PRESENTATION of exogenous ANTIGENS (cross-presentation). This is in contrast to normal activation of these lymphocytes (direct-priming) which results from presentation of endogenous antigens.

Medical problems associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR, such as BREECH PRESENTATION; PREMATURE OBSTETRIC LABOR; HEMORRHAGE; or others. These complications can affect the well-being of the mother, the FETUS, or both.

The position or orientation of the FETUS at near term or during OBSTETRIC LABOR, determined by its relation to the SPINE of the mother and the birth canal. The normal position is a vertical, cephalic presentation with the fetal vertex flexed on the NECK.

A 20 cM region of mouse chromosome 17 that is represented by a least two HAPLOTYPES. One of the haplotypes is referred to as the t-haplotype and contains an unusual array of mutations that affect embryonic development and male fertility. The t-haplotype is maintained in the gene pool by the presence of unusual features that prevent its recombination.
