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.

Variability in computed tomography angiography (CTA) acquisitions may be one explanation for the modest accuracy of the spot sign for predicting intracerebral hemorrhage expansion detected in the mult...

A short duration (
To test the hypothesis that the effect of antithrombotic medications on the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) varies according to the location of the hematoma.
The case fatality rate of nonlesional intracerebral hemorrhage (n-ICH) was high and not changed. Knowing the causes is important to their prevention; however, the reasons have not been studied. The ai...
We sought to determine whether therapeutic temperature modulation (TTM) to treat fever after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is associated with improved hospital complications and discharge outcomes.
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...
- To prove whether use of antiplatelet agents results into a rapid enlargement of hematoma after onset of acute intracerebral hemorrhage. - To prove the efficacy and safety of pl...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of lowering blood pressure using nicardipine in persons with acute hypertension associated with intracerebral hemorrha...
The purpose of this study is to determine if usage of early lumbar drainage leads to improved outcome, less shunt surgery and less catheter associated complications in patients with commu...
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.
