Prompt neuroimaging is important to identify multiple sclerosis lesions in the appropriate clinical setting. However, despite a normal brain MRI finding, a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis still must be considered in cases of dorsal midbrain syndrome, even if it is transient.

Currently, there is little in the medical literature on subperiosteal hematomas in neurofibromatosis patients, particularly in those who have subperiosteal neurofibromas. Initial imaging and clinical ...
A painless presentation of aortic dissection is rare in about 5% of cases. A few case reports discussed about involvement of coronary arteries causing bradycardia. In our case, we are presenting a rar...
Hematologic abnormalities are an important part of the diagnostic criteria for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This case presents a patient diagnosed with Evans Syndrome with underlying SLE on ini...
Shapiro syndrome is extremely rare and is characterized by the triad of spontaneous periodic hypothermia, hyperhidrosis and agenesis of the corpus callosum, resulting in neurological and psychological...
Patient case presentations during ward rounds can take place at the bedside or outside the room. The best approach to patient case presentation is yet unclear. Thus, the overall aim of thi...
Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by severe, unusual headaches associated with multifocal segmental vasoconstriction of the intracerebral arteries. In a...
The objectives of the clinical study are to implant five deaf patients (those with Neurofibromatosis Type II, NF2) with a new two-shank auditory midbrain implant array (AMI; developed by C...
Transient left ventricular ballooning syndrome (TLVBS) is a cardiac syndrome that is characterised by acute but transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. Since the syndrome clearly is ...
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a constellation of pain symptoms which are associated with impairment in mood, social and physical function. Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), a techn...
A nucleus located at the midline of the ventral MIDBRAIN TEGMENTUM with primarily GABAergic projections to the median and dorsal raphe nuclei and the MIDBRAIN CENTRAL GRAY.
Raphe nuclei located in the midbrain including the dorsal and median raphe nuclei. They are the origin of the major serotonergic innervation in the FOREBRAIN.
The middle of the three primitive cerebral vesicles of the embryonic brain. Without further subdivision, midbrain develops into a short, constricted portion connecting the PONS and the DIENCEPHALON. Midbrain contains two major parts, the dorsal TECTUM MESENCEPHALI and the ventral TEGMENTUM MESENCEPHALI, housing components of auditory, visual, and other sensorimoter systems.
The portion of midbrain situated under the dorsal TECTUM MESENCEPHALI. The two ventrolateral cylindrical masses or peduncles are large nerve fiber bundles providing a tract of passage between the forebrain with the hindbrain. Ventral midbrain also contains three colorful structures: the grey matter (PERIAQUEDUCTAL GRAY), the black substance (SUBSTANTIA NIGRA), and the RED NUCLEUS.
The midbrain portion of the reticular formation located in the MIDBRAIN TEGMENTUM.
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
