Headache has special importance during pregnancy and postpartum period. The health-care professionals and patients report headache management as challenging during pregnancy and lactation period. Cautions are recommended in preganancy and lactation due to maternal and fetal/newborn risks. Most headaches in the first trimester are due primary headaches. Nevertheless, the incidence of secondary headaches increase in the last trimester and post-partum period. Red flags prompt early evaluation in a patient with headache...

Fahr disease is an idiopathic disorder characterized with deposition of calcium and a few other minerals in basal ganglia, cerebellum and subcortical brain area. A 51 years old female with the complaints of pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in both upper extremities for six months was referred to our electromyography laboratory with a suspicion of carpal tunnel syndrome. She got the diagnosis of Fahr disease upon the investigations for the convulsions that she experienced ten years ago. Beside, she had a generalized anxiety disoder...

Photopsia, fortification spectra, and the slow propagation of a scintillating scotoma across the visual field are typical diagnostic features of the visual aura of migraine. In the vast majority of cases, the diagnosis can be made without the need for further investigations. Herein, we report three consecutive cases with an astrocytoma and discuss clinical features of migraine-like visual aura.

Tardive dyskinesia and tardive dystonia are caused by dopamine receptor blocking agents, mostly antipsychotics and sometimes antidepressants or calcium channel blockers. Duloxetine is a serotonin-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor used in the treatment of diabetic neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia, as well as major depression. In this case, we aimed to discuss the tardive dyskinesia-like appearance of a patient using duloxetine due to fibromyalgia.

OBJECTIVES: Comorbidity of migraine and mood disorders has long been recognized. Most of the studies have focused on the relationship between migraine and major depression with only few studies suggesting a special association between migraine and bipolar spectrum disorders. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of bipolar disorder in migraine patients in a specialized headache outpatient clinic. METHODS: The sample consisted of 78 consecutive patients with migraine headache presenting to the specialized headache outpatient clinic in a Medical Faculty...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to retrospectively investigate the efficacy of ultrasound guided rectus sheath block (RSB) method in our study. METHODS: We scanned 235 patient files operated for abdominal pathology. Patients meeting the criteria were evaluated for intra-operative rectus sheath block and two different groups were formed. In these two groups of patients visual analogue scale (VAS) values recorded from the postoperative pain follow-up form and analgesic delivery (DEL) and analgesic demand (DEM) values recorded from patient controlled analgesia (PCA) device were compared...

OBJECTIVES: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) has been effectively treated by radiofrequency thermocoagulation (RFT) of the gasserian ganglion. Recently, pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) is becoming an alternative therapy for patients with trigeminal neuralgia. It is unclear whether the combination of RFT with PRF may decrease post-operative complications while maintaining longterm pain relief. METHODS: Twelve patients with idiopathic TN who had undergone combined RFT and PRF of the gasserian ganglion were evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is the most common and troublesome complication of diabetes leading to great morbidity and resulting in a huge economic burden for diabetes care. Over half of people with diabetes develop neuropathy. Also, DPN is a major cause of reduced quality of life due to pain, sensory loss, gait instability, fall-related injury, and foot ulceration and amputation. The aim of this study was evaluating the effects of lifestyle interventions on diabetic neuropathy severity in diabetes type 2 outpatients...

The abrupt onset of acute, high-intensity headache, unlike any experienced before, can be an urgent medical condition, which requires attention. A 32-year-old female patient developed thunderclap headache attacks had applied with increasing intensity and frequency since 1 week. She had visited the emergency department several times, and cranial computed tomography findings were normal. On the last presentation, neurological examination showed complete oculomotor nerve palsy on the left. Brain magnetic resonance imaging together with intracranial brain angiography revealed left posterior communicating aneurysm compressing the ipsilateral oculomotor nerve, with no evidence of subarachnoid hemorrhage...

This study reports the case of a 23-year-old man with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) who presented with blurred vision and diplopia, without accompanying headache. Although headache is the most common symptom associated with IIH, occasionally, it may not be observed clinically. This situation is more frequently observed in males, young adults, children, and in patients with low body mass index. This case highlights a crucial aspect; patients who present with serious visual symptoms without headache must be treated aggressively because vision loss will develop rapidly...

General anesthesia is the first choice as an anesthesia method particularly for abdominal operations. However, because neuromuscular blockade induced during general anesthesia will increase atelectasis in a patient with pulmonary disease, it will also increase postoperative ventilator dependence, which will be even more apparent in cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that pose a risk, particularly for postoperative complications. Herein, thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) was found to be a better option for our patient with severe COPD and stage IV lung cancer, as it provided sufficient anesthesia and better postoperative care for laparoscopic gastrostomy...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this randomized controlled study was to investigate the effect of proprioceptive training on balance in patients with chronic neck pain (CNP). METHODS: Forty patients participating in the study were randomly divided into study and control groups. Both of the groups underwent conventional physical therapy; additionally, the study group was rehabilitated with gaze direction recognition exercise (GDRE) for proprioceptive training. Exercises were performed during 3 weeks with five sessions per week...

OBJECTIVES: The effect of subcostal transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block on postoperative pain is contradictive. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of subcostal TAP block on subacute pain in patients who have undergone inguinal herniography. METHODS: Patients aged between 18 and 75 years with American Society of Anesthesiologists 1-3 and who were to undergo elective unilateral inguinal herniography with mesh under general anesthesia were included...

OBJECTIVES: Nitroglycerin (NTG)-induced migraine-type headache is the most prominent side effect of nitrate therapy. Therefore, the aim of this study was to clarify the effectiveness of reflexology massage on intravenous NTG-induced headache in coronary care unit (CCU) inpatients. METHODS: This was a randomized clinical trial. The study sample included 75 patients that were randomly divided into three groups: control, intervention, and placebo groups. The intensity of baseline headache in patients who received NTG was measured by the numeric rating scale for pain (NRS Pain)...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate patient satisfaction with nursing practices regarding postoperative pain management. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature published between 2005 and 2015 was conducted, comprising a search of 7 databases: ScienceDirect, Turkish Medline, PsycINFO, Ovid, Prequest, Google Scholar, and the ULAKBIM Turkish Medical Database. Five articles were identified as eligible for review. The methodological quality of the studies was assessed using the Turkish version of the Joanna Briggs Institute-Meta Analysis of Statistics Assessment and Review Instrument (JBI -MAStARI) Critical Appraisal Checklist...

A schwannoma, also known as a neurilemoma, is composed of Schwann cells, and is the most common benign tumor of the peripheral nerves. It commonly appears as a solitary lesion in the head and neck region. The diagnosis is based on ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and histopathological examination. This encapsulated tumor has a good prognosis with a low recurrence rate after surgical removal. This case report is a description of a forearm schwannoma that initially appeared to be a ganglion cyst.
