The postictal period has many physical, behavioral, and cognitive manifestations associated with it. These signs and symptoms are common, can be quite debilitating, and can have a continued impact long after the seizure has ended. The purpose of this systematic review was to quantify the occurrence of postictal signs and symptoms, along with their frequency and duration in persons with epilepsy.
HIV-associated distal sensory polyneuropathy (DSP), with or without neuropathic symptoms, can develop after anti-retroviral therapy (ART). Symptoms frequently involve small fibres but reports on autonomic dysfunction in HIV-DSP are sparse. We studied an HIV-infected cohort after 5 years of ART, and report on the frequency and severity of autonomic symptoms and the impact of DSP on everyday function. This cross-sectional study comprised of participants from a community-based South African HIV-clinic. The B...
Parents play important role in providing information regarding their children's health status to healthcare providers. However, parents' ability in reporting signs and symptoms of eye problems among their children required more in-depth investigation. Our study aimed to compare the differences of parental report regarding eye problems among their children using two different question approaches.
To assess the prevalence of diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN)-related sensory symptoms/signs and associated factors in patients with polyneuropathy, considering non-linear effects for numerical variables.
Animal models suggest that early markers of Sjögren syndrome (EMS)-antibodies against salivary protein 1, parotid secretory protein, and carbonic anhydrase 6 (CA6)-are more accurate signals of early Sjögren when compared with classic markers (anti-Ro and anti-La). To further understand the relationship between EMS and dry eye (DE), we compared symptoms and signs of DE in subjects who tested positive versus negative for EMS.
The aim of the present systematic review was to answer the overall research question: "To what extent is bruxism associated with musculoskeletal signs and symptoms?". The review was performed in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. A PubMed search of articles published until November 23, 2017 was conducted. The search string included both MeSH terms and text words. Results were presented in categories according to study design, study population (e.g., adults, children), bruxism sub-type (awake, sleep), as...
Parkinson's disease is a well-known neurological disorder with distinct motor signs and non-motor symptoms. We report on six patients with Parkinson's disease that used in-house built photobiomodulation (PBM) helmets. We used "buckets" lined with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) of wavelengths across the red to near-infrared range (i.e., 670, 810, and 850 nm; = 5) or an homemade intranasal LED device (660 nm; = 1). Progress was assessed by the patients themselves, their spouse, or their attendin...
Management of carious teeth with signs and symptoms indicative of irreversible pulpitis is traditionally invasive, but emerging evidence suggests successful treatment outcomes with less invasive vital pulp treatment such as coronal pulpotomy. The objective of this systematic review is to determine whether coronal pulpotomy is clinically effective in treating carious teeth with signs and symptoms indicative of irreversible pulpitis.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a pruritic or painful dermatologic disease characterized by xerosis and eczema lesions. The symptoms/signs of AD can significantly impact patients' health-related quality of life (HRQoL). This study aimed to qualitatively explore the adult and adolescent experience of AD. A targeted literature review and qualitative concept elicitation interviews with clinicians (n = 5), adult AD patients (n = 28), and adolescent AD patients (n = 20) were conducted to elicit AD signs/symptoms and H...
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a highly prevalent infection in the United States. One complication of HSV is HSV keratitis, an ocular HSV infection thought to be the leading cause of corneal blindness in the United States. Home care clinicians with knowledge of the signs and symptoms of HSV and HSV keratitis can aid in early detection and treatment of this potentially serious infection. This article discusses signs and symptoms of HSV keratitis, preventive measures, and treatment.
No available assessment tool offers a brief and psychometrically sound way for clinicians to quantify assessment of MS in a typical office visit. The objective of this study was to develop a brief clinician-reported outcome measure of MS signs and symptoms to standardize and quantify assessments that occur during a typical neurology office visit.
This study contributes to the understanding of the mechanisms associated with signs and symptoms of tooth eruption, by investigating the presence of mast cells in pericoronal tissues during the intraosseous (Group 1) and submucosal (Group 2) phases of eruption. We compared findings for these two groups with each other and with those for the oral mucosa (Group 3). In each group, 14 specimens were analyzed microscopically after hematoxylin and eosin staining and immunohistochemical analysis of c-Kit and trypt...
Every part of the human body is subject to aging, including the eye. An increased prevalence of dry eye disease with age is widely acknowledged. Aging threatens ocular surface homeostasis, altering the normal functioning of the lacrimal functional unit and potentially leading to signs and symptoms of dry eye. Additional age-related processes take place within the crystalline lens, leading to presbyopia and cataractogenesis. Correction strategies for presbyopia and cataracts may directly or indirectly challe...
Emerging arbovirus infections have classic symptoms such as fever, arthralgia, or rash. As some of them have ophthalmic symptoms/signs, the main objective is to evaluate whether these findings could help to clarify the clinical diagnosis.
Early recognition of stroke symptoms and recognizing the importance of calling 9-1-1 improves the timeliness of appropriate emergency care, resulting in improved health outcomes. The objective of this study was to assess changes in awareness of stroke symptoms and calling 9-1-1 from 2009 to 2014.
To investigate the clinical characteristics and useful signs to differentiate detrusor underactivity from bladder outlet obstruction in men with non-neurogenic lower urinary tract symptoms.
The diagnostic criteria for small fibre neuropathy are not established, influencing the approach to patients in clinical practice, their access to disease-modifying and symptomatic treatments, the use of healthcare resources, and the design of clinical trials. To address these issues, we performed a reappraisal study of 150 patients with sensory neuropathy and a prospective and follow-up validation study of 352 new subjects with suspected sensory neuropathy. Small fibre neuropathy diagnostic criteria were b...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the commonest cause of disability in under-40-year-olds. Vestibular features of dizziness (illusory self-motion) or imbalance which affects 50% of TBI patients at 5 years, increases unemployment threefold in TBI survivors. Unfortunately, vestibular diagnoses are cryptogenic in 25% of chronic TBI cases, impeding therapy. We hypothesized that chronic adaptive brain mechanisms uncouple vestibular symptoms from signs. This predicts a masking of vestibular diagnoses chronically b...

: Craniopharyngioma is benign neoplasm thought to be caused by mal-development, which occurs in both children and adults in the sellar and suprasellar regions of the brain. Typical manifestations in adults are visual and endocrine system symptoms followed by signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure (i.e., headache). The management of this rare condition is complex and requires life-long surveillance by a multidisciplinary team of health-care professionals. : To present a rare clinical presentat...
A preponderance of common signs and symptoms of cervical myelopathy (CM) manifest in the upper extremities and include hand numbness, hand clumsiness, and distal upper extremity weakness. Cervical myelopathy presenting without symptoms in the upper extremities is rare and this study aims to better understand the incidence and character of such cases.
This study aimed to investigate the effects of several clinical factors on the success and survival rates of multiple-visit non-surgical root canal (NSRC) retreatment. Failed endodontically treated 236 teeth in 161 patients (18-72 years, 48% males; and 52% females) were retreated between March 2014 and December 2015 and were enrolled in this study. Two calibrated examiners evaluated the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative outcomes using the periapical index (PAI) scores. The teeth were classifi...
