The association between 1p32-p31 contiguous gene deletions and a distinct phenotype that includes anomalies of the corpus callosum, ventriculomegaly, developmental delay, seizures, and dysmorphic features has been long recognized and described. Recently, the observation of overlapping phenotypes in patients with chromosome translocations that disrupt NFIA (Nuclear factor I/A), a gene within this deleted region, and NFIA intragenic deletions has led to the hypothesis that NFIA is a critical gene within this region...

Chiari-like malformation (CM), syringomyelia (SM) and middle ear effusion (also called PSOM) are three conditions that frequently occur in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (CKCS). Both CM and SM are currently screened in the Netherlands prior to breeding and are graded according to the British Veterinary Association's Kennel Club (BVA/KC) scheme. This study evaluated the prevalence and estimated genetic parameter of CM, SM and middle ear effusion from 12 years of screening results. For SM, the classical method using the BVA/KC scheme, was compared with exact measuring of the central canal dilation...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is treated with anticoagulation therapy, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), angioplasty, and liver transplantation. TIPS is not always technically feasible, due to the complete hepatic venous thrombosis. Direct intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (DIPS) is an alternative method for decompression of portal hypertension. This is a retrospective, single-center study aiming to evaluate the outcome of ultrasound (US)-guided DIPS in patients with BCS...

West Nile virus (WNV) is endemic in the Po valley area, Northern Italy, and within the legal framework of the national plan for the surveillance of human vector-borne diseases, WNV surveillance has over time been implemented. The surveillance plans are based on the transdisciplinary and trans-sectorial collaboration between regional institutions involved in public, animal, and environmental health. This integrated surveillance targets mosquitoes, wild birds, humans, and horses and aims at early detecting the viral circulation and reducing the risk of infection in the human populations...

BACKGROUND: Venous reconstruction in living-donor liver transplantation for Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) has challenges because the grafts from living donors lack vena cava, and hepatic venous anastomosis must be performed on an already-thrombosed and/or stenosed inferior vena cava. Several techniques are described to overcome this problem, and we represent our experience with 22 patients. METHODS: Medical recordings of 22 patients were retrospectively collected, and disease-specific data as well as recordings about surgical technique were analyzed...

This review focuses on the perioperative anesthetic management of patients having liver transplantation (LT) performed for several uncommon indications or in combination with rare pathology. Conditions discussed in the article include Alagille syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Gilbert's syndrome, porphyria, Wilson's disease, and Budd-Chiari syndrome. In comparison to other indications, LT in these settings is infrequent because of the low incidence of these pathologies. Most of these conditions (with the exception of Gilbert syndrome) are associated with a high probability of significant perioperative complications and increased mortality and morbidity...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disease with an incidence of 0.1 to 10 per million inhabitants a year caused by impaired venous outflow from the liver mostly at the level of hepatic veins and inferior vena cava. Etiological factors include hypercoagulable conditions, myeloprolipherative diseases, anatomical variability of the inferior vena cava, and environmental conditions. Survival rates in treated patients range from 42 to 100% depending on the etiology and the presence of risk factors including parameters of Child-Pugh score, sodium and creatinine plasma levels, and the choice of treatment...

PURPOSE: Radial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most accurate diagnostic tool in assessing cam-type femoroacetabular impingement. Plain radiographs, however, are useful for the initial diagnosis in the daily practice and there is still debate regarding the optimal lateral view. The purpose of this study was to investigate the reliability of detecting cam deformities using the frog-leg view or the 45° Dunn view by comparison with radial MRI. MATERIAL: 66 consecutive hips with plain radiographs (36 with AP and frog-leg views, 30 with AP and 45° Dunn views) and radial MRI were assessed...

INTRODUCTION: Acquired Chiari malformation and associated syringomyelia have been previously described following lumbar puncture/drainage, lumboperitoneal shunts, and spontaneous CSF leakage. In addition to these etiologies, space-occupying lesions such as meningiomas, epidermoid cysts, medulloblastomas, and arachnoid cysts are rare causes of acquired Chiari malformation and syringomyelia. We report a rare case of colloid cyst with hydrocephalus causing secondary Chiari malformation with syringomyelia...

Patients can have more than one neurological problem, and sorting out acute from chronic disease can be challenging. The authors report a middle-aged patient who presented with ataxia, right hemiparesis, and abnormal nystagmus. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a Chiari and an arachnoid cyst with brainstem compression that appeared to explain his abnormal examination. Shortly after admission, he was noted to have intermittent abnormal behavior and confusion. History from family revealed significant acute and chronic psychiatric problems that appeared to explain his abnormal mental status; this delayed the diagnosis of intermittent complex partial seizures...

BACKGROUND: Chiari-like malformation (CM) and syringomyelia (SM) are widely reported in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Griffon Bruxellois dogs. Increasing evidence indicates that CM and SM also occur in other small and toy breed dogs, such as Chihuahuas. OBJECTIVES: To describe the presence of SM and craniocervical junction (CCJ) abnormalities in Chihuahuas and to evaluate the possible association of CCJ abnormalities with SM. To describe CM/SM-related clinical signs and neurologic deficits and to investigate the association of CM/SM-related clinical signs with signalment, SM, or CCJ abnormalities...
