Stiff person syndrome (SPS) is usually characterized by truncal muscle rigidity and episodic painful spasms, but it sometimes appears with ocular symptoms called "stiff eyes". We recorded saccade movements in an SPS patient manifesting with "stiff eyes" conditions with slow saccade velocity and evaluated the effect of immunotherapy including rituximab on saccade parameters.
A 57-year-old man with a known case of stiff person syndrome (SPS) presented with an insidious-onset 3-month history of right groin pain and inability to bear weight on the right lower extremity. Radiographs demonstrated a displaced right neck of femur fracture. Pelvic magnetic resonance imaging was negative for any infective or neoplastic pathology. Right primary cementless total hip replacement was performed. Significant improvement in function was noted after surgery.
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.
Stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS) is a rare neurologic disorder characterized by severe and progressively worsening muscle stiffness and rigidity. SPS can be very painful due to unpredictable muscle spasms which can be triggered by various stimuli, such as noise, touch, or emotional experiences. There is thought to be an autoimmune component to the disorder. We present the case of a 59-year-old woman diagnosed with SPS who appears to have experienced a dramatic reduction in her symptoms after being treated with L...
Multiple Sclerosis is a multifactorial autoimmune disease of the central nervous system, characterized by focal inflammation, demyelination and secondary axonal injury. TREM2 is a signaling protein which participates in the innate immune system by implication to inflammation, proliferation and phagocytosis. The R47H (rs75392628) rare variant of the TREM2 gene has been related to various neurological diseases and leads to impaired signaling, lipoprotein binding, lipoprotein uptake and surface uptake.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, immune-mediated, inflammatory, neurodegenerative disorder. Many studies are investigating the potential role of body fluid biomarkers as prognostic factors for early identification of patients presenting with clinical isolated syndrome (CIS) at high risk for conversion to MS or to recognize RRMS patients at high risk for progression.
Posterior fossa syndrome (PFS) is a rare manifestation of ponto-mesencephalic lesions frequently reported in post-surgical pediatric tumors, rarely described as a consequence of vascular, infective or inflammatory lesions.
Despite multiple diagnostic tests, multiple sclerosis (MS) remains a clinical diagnosis with supportive paraclinical evidence.
Two cases of clinical and MRI manifestations of genetically verified CADASIL syndrome in female patients under 40 years of age are presented. The primary misinterpretation of clinical data and the neuroimaging results within multiple sclerosis indicates a lack of awareness of radiologists and neurologists about this disease. The article reviewed the current literature on the problems of diagnosis and treatment of CADASIL. The clinical and neuroimaging pattern of the syndrome, the approaches to genetic testi...
Rebound of multiple sclerosis (MS) activity has been described after the withdrawal of high-efficacy drugs, but its impact during pregnancy is less known. We describe a series of cases of rebound syndrome after the cessation of fingolimod due to pregnancy planning.
Whether multiple sclerosis is associated with a higher rate of suicide remains controversial. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the risk of suicide in multiple sclerosis patients based on meta-analysis of previously published data.
Radiologically isolated syndrome (RIS) is the asymptomatic precursor to clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) or primary progressive MS. RIS is frequently diagnosed when an individual gets an MRI for an unrelated medical issue, such as headache or trauma. Treating RIS patients is controversial, but physicians may be inclined to offer prophylactic treatment for high-risk RIS patients. Identifying imaging and clinical features associated with high likelihood of early clinic...
Multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) are common demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system. The etiology and pathogenesis of MS and NMOSD remain unclear. The pathogenesis of these two diseases involves a genetic predisposition as well as environmental factors. NMOSD sometimes co-exists with Sjögren's syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and these diseases are frequently associated with central nervous system disorder i...
Proper management of multiple sclerosis (MS) requires feedback from clinical practice via registries.
To establish whether a unique multiple sclerosis (MS) prodrome exists by comparing health care utilization in the five-year period before initial presentation with optic neuritis (ON) or transverse myelitis (TM) among those who were and were not subsequently diagnosed with MS.
Telemedicine, the remote delivery of health care services, increases access to care for patients with mobility or geographic limitations. Virtual house calls (VHCs) are one type of telemedicine in which clinical visits are conducted remotely using an audio-visual connection with the patient at home. Use of VHCs is more established in other neurologic disorders but is only recently being formally evaluated in multiple sclerosis (MS). This randomized crossover study systematically assessed VHCs compared with ...
Autopsy data suggest a causative link between meningeal inflammation and cortical lesions (CLs) in multiple sclerosis (MS).
Fatigue is a common symptom in multiple sclerosis and has significant impacts on participation and quality of life. Thus, fatigue assessment in this population is always a necessity.
Multiple sclerosis (MS), is an emergent disease in Latin America (LATAM), which raises substantial socioeconomic challenges to a region where most countries remain as economies in development.
Fatigue ranks among the most common and disabling symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS). Recent theoretical works have surmised that this trait might be related to alterations across interoceptive mechanisms. However, this hypothesis has not been empirically evaluated.
Vitamin D deficiency is a proposed risk factor for multiple sclerosis (MS), but its role in progressive MS is not well understood.
Tumefactive demyelinating lesions occur as part of the spectrum of multiple sclerosis (MS), but can be difficult to distinguish from other large cerebral lesions such as neoplasm or abscess.
