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: 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)...

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.

An ultrasound-guided dorsal penile nerve (DPN) block was performed for postoperative analgesia in a 6-year-old, 19 kg, American Society of Anesthesiologists class II patient undergoing hypospadias surgery. The block was applied following the induction of general anesthesia. Anesthesia maintenance was provided with sevoflurane 2% in a 1:2 ratio of oxygen and nitrous oxide. The DPN block was performed using 0.2 mL/kg of 0.25% bupivacaine. Almost 24 hours of analgesia was provided following surgery.

Neurofibromatosis type 1 is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by cutaneous and/or plexiform neurofibromas and hyperpigmented café-au-lait spots. It affects multiple endocrine and visceral organs and can be associated with several difficulties such as potential airway (ventilation/intubation) problems, abnormal spinal anatomy, and peripheral neurofibromas. Therefore, anesthesia technique selection becomes more of an issue in terms of avoiding complications and decreasing morbidity and mortality...

OBJECTIVES: Transient neurological symptoms (TNS) after spinal anesthesia vary from dysesthesia that is hardly noticed to severe pain. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of TNS and provocative risk factors in 591 patients who underwent central block. METHODS: Before the operation, demographic data and features of the operation and the block were recorded. The patients were evaluated at postoperative 24 and 48 hours and day 7 with regard to TNS in the form of pain (headache, lower back and/or limb pain, backache, pain in the puncture region) and sensation disorders (paresthesia, hypoesthesia, hyperesthesia, anesthesia, dysesthesia)...

Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the spine and peripheral joints. Polymyalgia rheumatica is an inflammatory disease characterized by aching and prolonged morning stiffness mainly in the shoulder and pelvic girdles. Many other diseases may mimic polymyalgia rheumatica, and thus differential diagnosis is predominantly required. A wide variety of diseases, including spondyloarthropathies, may present polymyalgia-like symptoms, and two diseases rarely coexist. We present a case of a 54-year-old man who had been followed-up for ankylosing spondylitis and presented with pain in the shoulder and pelvic girdles, restricted movement, and morning stiffness for 2 months...
