#1
REVIEW
Thomas P Brown
Pure autonomic failure is a degenerative disorder of the peripheral autonomic nervous system. Patients experience symptomatic hypotension that requires them to sit, squat or lie down to prevent syncope. It is associated with characteristic histopathological findings, resulting in neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions in the peripheral autonomic nerves. These lesions are responsible for defects in the synthesis and release of norepinephrine from sympathetic nerve terminals, resulting in significant hypotension. Patients with autonomic failure also have exaggerated blood pressure responses to common stimuli such as food or fluid intake, heat, exercise and medications...

REVIEW
Nick Miller
This review looks at the nature and impact of communication changes in Parkinson's disease, approaches to assessment and directions for intervention. This is especially important since medical and surgical interventions that help limb movement are largely ineffective, or even detrimental, for speech. Most people with Parkinson's disease notice changes to their communication. Voice alters early on-even in the prodromal stage. Later, articulation may impair intelligibility further. These changes impact on mood and social participation...

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related inflammation (CAA-I) is a rare variant of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). Its precise pathophysiology remains uncertain and we currently have limited evidence on which immunosuppressive agents are the most effective in its treatment. The disease course of CAA-I disorders can vary from an isolated clinical event to recurrent episodes. We present a case of biopsy-confirmed CAA-I that gives insight into its potential relapsing nature and the challenges of its long-term management...

REVIEW
Brendan N Mclean, James Gulliver, Harry R Dalton
Hepatitis E is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide. While originally considered a disease of developing countries, it is increasingly recognised in developed countries, probably related to contaminated pork meat, and where infection is often asymptomatic. However, several non-liver manifestations have become apparent, the most important of which are neurological, including Guillain-Barré syndrome (acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (AIDP)), neuralgic amyotrophy and meningoencephalitis...

We report an adult with acute unilateral pain as isolated manifestation of acute symptomatic focal non-convulsive status epilepticus. Pain is rarely a manifestation of epileptic seizures. Traditionally, painful seizures have been thought to originate in either the parietal or temporal lobes, but their localising value is debatable. Recent functional neuroimaging studies and electrophysiological findings obtained by using intracerebral recordings have shown the involvement of the insular cortex along with several other brain structures in the processing of painful inputs, comprising a more widespread anatomo-functional network...

A 65-year-old man presented with two transient ischaemic attacks, and was then found to have a deep vein thrombosis. He later had recurrent ischaemic strokes. After thorough investigation, the only cause we identified was a previously undiagnosed metastatic pancreatic cancer. We describe the assessment of this presentation and discuss the causes and management of cancer-related stroke.
