INTRODUCTION: Discrete patterns of progression have been suggested for patients with Parkinson disease and presenting tremor dominant (TD) or postural instability gait disorders (PIGD). However, longitudinal prospective assessments need to take into consideration the variability in clinical manifestations and the evidence that only 40% of initially classified PIGD remain in this subtype at subsequent visits. METHODS: We analyzed clinical progression of PIGD compared to TD using longitudinal clinical data from the PPMI...

Anti-γ-aminobutyric acid-B (GABAB ) receptor encephalitis is an autoimmune encephalitis associated with antibodies against neuronal cell surface antigens, which are primarily observed with small-cell lung cancer, melanoma, and thymoma. Here, we first report a case on the association between a relatively frequent cancer, gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC), and a rare GABAB receptor antibody limbic encephalitis. The patient was treated with immunotherapy and combined-drug chemotherapy, which were partially effective in terms of stabilizing the tumor and relieving neurological symptoms...

The aims of this study were to investigate the correlations of tri-nucleotide (CTG) repeat length with detailed echocardiography (ECHO) parameters that represent myocardial function and to find a relationship between heart function and CTG repeat length in adult-onset myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1). In this study, clinical data for patients with DM1, including age, onset age, CTG repeat length, Medical Research Council sum score (MRCSS), and 6-min walking test (6MWT), were recorded. In addition, ECHO parameters and cardiac conduction abnormalities were evaluated...

Epileptic encephalopathies are a group of disorders in which epileptiform abnormalities cause progressive deterioration in cerebral function. Genetic causes have been described in several of the epileptic encephalopathies, and many previously unknown genes have been identified. WW domain-containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) has recently been implicated in autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia type 12 (SCAR12) and severe early-onset epileptic encephalopathy. With whole-exome sequencing, we identified a homozygous WWOX missense mutation, p...

Morvan's syndrome is a rare syndrome of likely autoimmune etiology characterized by peripheral nerve hyperexcitability, dysautonomia, insomnia, and fluctuating delirium with prominent hallucinations. Since its first mention in 1890, less than 100 cases have been described in literature. The largest existing review includes details of 29 cases. This case series describes 4 cases (M = 4) of Morvan's syndrome which presented between May and November 2017 to a single tertiary care referral teaching hospital in north India...

Astrocytoma is recognized as the most common neoplasm of the brain with aggressive progression. The therapeutic regime for glioblastoma, the most aggressive astrocytoma, often consists of aggressive chemo and radiotherapy. The present holistic approaches, however, have failed to influence the quality life of patients. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the underlying mechanisms of its progression for updated therapeutic evaluation. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is reported to be associated with glioblastoma progression...

BACKGROUND: Italy is a high-risk area for multiple sclerosis with 110,000 prevalent cases estimated at January 2016 and 3400 annual incident cases. To study multiple sclerosis epidemiology, it is preferable to use population-based studies, e.g., with a registry. A valid alternative to obtain data on entire population is from administrative sources. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the incidence of multiple sclerosis in Tuscany using a case-finding algorithm based on administrative data...

Translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the 39-item Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) to the Italian culture was performed by Oxford University Innovation in 2008, but this version has never been validated. Therefore, we performed the process of validation of the Italian version of the PDQ-39 (PDQ-39-IT) following the "Consensus-Based Standards for the Selection of Health Status Measurement Instruments" checklist. The translated PDQ-39-IT was tested with 104 patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD) who were recruited between June and October 2017...

Neurosarcoidosis is relatively rare and has diverse manifestations. The clinical characteristics, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome for neurosarcoidosis in China are poorly understood. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical features, laboratory and imaging results, treatment, and outcomes in patients who met the criteria for definite or probable neurosarcoidosis in Xuan Wu Hospital of Capital Medical University from 2000 to 2015. Eight patients were included in this study, accounting for 5.84% of all cases with sarcoidosis...

Transcranial sonography (TCS) is a noninvasive, easily performed, and commonly available neuroimaging technique useful for the study of brain parenchyma in movement disorders. This tool has been increasingly used in the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease and atypical parkinsonism. The aim of the study was to evaluate the applicability of this technique as supportive tool in the early diagnosis of movement disorders. We performed TCS on 315 individuals which were diagnosed as healthy controls or affected by idiopathic Parkinson's disease, monogenetic subtypes of Parkinson's disease, atypical parkinsonism, and Dementia with Lewy bodies...

INTRODUCTION: Orolingual angioedema (OA) is a known adverse effect of intravenous (i.v.) alteplase. We analyzed all patients treated with i.v. alteplase for stroke at our hospital since approval of i.v. thrombolysis in Italy in 2004 to assess the incidence of this complication. PATIENTS AND RESULTS: Four hundred thirty-three patients received alteplase for stroke from April 2004 to May 2017. Two women developed OA (0.4%; 95% confidence interval 0.1 to 1.6%). Angioedema was mild in one case and severe in the other, with massive swelling of the lips, tongue, and oropharyngeal mucosa, and oropharyngeal bleeding, requiring intubation...

INTRODUCTION: Neurodegenerative disease is one of the main contributing factors affecting muscle atrophy. However, this intriguing brain-muscle axis has been explained by the unsubstantial mechanisms. Although there have been several studies that have evaluated the muscle profile and its relation to cognition in patients with dementia, there is still lack of data using standardized methods and only few published studies on Korean populations. The objective of this study is to evaluate the relationship of muscle mass and strength to cognition in patients with Alzheimer's disease dementia (AD)...
