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.

The role of diabetes mellitus in the pathogenesis of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is controversial. Underlying comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus may increase the risk of intracerebral hemorrha...
Magnesium (Mg) is an essential element in body's normal physiological functioning. It has a major role in modulating vascular smooth muscle tone and peripheral arterial resistance. Low serum Mg on adm...
The authors report an unusual case of a dural arteriovenous fistula (dAVF) draining only to the diploic vein and causing intracerebral hemorrhage. A 62-year-old woman presented with disturbance of con...
Intracerebral hemorrhage is a devastating disorder with no current treatment. Whether perihematomal edema is an independent predictor of neurologic outcome is controversial. We sought to determine whe...
Recent evidence suggests that a potential harmful relationship exists between cannabis use and ischemic stroke. The purpose of this study was to determine the implications of cannabis use in intracere...
Intracerebral hemorrhage is bleeding into the brain and is a major cause of stroke and other complications. Brain injury from intracerebral hemorrhage occurs in two phases. The early phas...
The aim of this project is development of a comprehensive, prospective, multinational, multicenter, hospital-based, data repository for patients with intracerebral hemorrhage.
Views for surgery method selection of intracerebral hemorrhage are still controversial. Since the application of neuroendoscopic technique in intraventricular hemorrhage was confirmed eff...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether rosuvastatin is effective in the management of acute phase of intracerebral hemorrhage and if it impact outcome by NIHSS.
Study Objective: To analyze if statins are effective in ameliorating perihematomal edema evolution thereby reducing mortality and improving functional outcomes following spontaneous intra...
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.
