The aim of this study was to describe the neurological consultation and baseline characteristics of children with cerebral palsy (CP). The clinical records of children with CP attending an external consultation of the Neuropediatric department of Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia between 2011 and 2012 were assessed in this retrospective descriptive study. A total of 81 children were included: 53.1% were boys. Spastic CP was the most frequent (72.8%), hypoxic-isquemic encephalopathy (28.1%) and cerebral malformations (28...

BACKGROUND: To analyze the most common neurophthalmological conditions that may mimic glaucomatous optic neuropathy and to determine which most often lead to misdiagnosis when evaluated by a glaucoma specialist. METHODS: We reviewed the charts of consecutive patients with optic neuropathies caused by neurophthalmological conditions screened in a single Eye Clinic within a period of 24 months. Within these enrolled patients, we selected the eyes whose fundoscopic appearance could resemble glaucoma based in pre-defined criteria (vertical cup-to-disc ratio ≥0...

INTRODUCTION: Lesions in ipsilateral systems related to postural control in the ipsilesional side may justify the lower performance of stroke subjects during walking. PURPOSE: To analyze bilateral ankle antagonist coactivation during double support in stroke subjects. METHODS: Sixteen (8 females; 8 males) subjects with a first isquemic stroke and 22 controls (12 females; 10 males) participated in this study. The double-support phase was assessed through ground reaction forces and the electromyography of ankle muscles was assessed in both limbs...

OBJECTIVES: The ortopantomography (OPG) can be a valuable way for an early detection of calcified atheroma plaques, thus contributing for a preliminary stroke risk evaluation. The study looks for the existence of calcified atheroma plates through the use of OPG, comparing the results with the stenosis percentage found through eco-doppler. It has been analyzed the correlation of the number of years as a smoker, arterial hypertension and body mass index, against the risk of having calcified atheroma plaques...

BACKGROUND: The cardiovascular risk factors present a high prevalence in our country, similar to other countries of the Mediterranean area. We don't know which is the distribution of these risk factors in the Maghrebian immigrant population. METHODS: There was designed a descriptive transverse study realized in 4 semiurban health center of Barcelona (Spain). 167 patients were included by means of consecutive sampling, between january 2005 and december 2006, major of age of a total population of 1127 Maghrebian assigned patients...

INTRODUCTION: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a systemic disease, characterized by fibrosis and vasculopathy, with variable internal organ involvement. Skin is very often involved, namely digital ulcers (DU), seldom treatment resistant, responsible for important functional limitation. The DU can evolve from sclerodactily with superficial ulcers, isquemic lesions, deep necrosis, gangrene, loss of tissue, and consequently, to finger amputation. METHODS: The authors describe the case of a 36 year old female patient, with SSc diagnosed 6 years previously, with skin, lung and gut manifestations...

BACKGROUNDS: With the intention of establishing economic inequities, the article analyzes the variations of the Unnecessarily Premature and Sanitarily Avoidable Mortality (MIPSE) of each of the 81 cantons of Costa Rica during 2000-2005. It is important to identify those inequities, to establish policies and strategies trying to mitigate them. METHOD: It applies the MIPSE classification proposed by members of the Information and Studies Service, of the Catalunya's Sanitary Resources Headquarter, Spain...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the behaviour of mortality due to ischemic cardiopathy in Mexico during the years 2000 through 2007. METHODS: The codes of the International Classification of Diseases 10 that correspond to the ischemic cardiopathy were identified. The rates of mortality nationwide, by federative entity, and by socioeconomic region as well as by degree of education, type of job, and public health services entitlement, were determined. Likewise, the strength of association by means of the regression of Poisson among federative entities, socioeconomic regions where individuals resided in, and mortality by ischemic cardiopathy were also determinated...

The presence of a neonatal neurological lesion associated or not with dysmorphism or with a particular phenotype can be caused by a) prenatal infections (Group TORCH) toxic or teratotoxic agents (alcohol, cocain, antiepileptics, inhalants such as toluene, etc.), vascular defects or genetic anomalies; b) perinatal isquemic hypoxic lesions, infectious or metabolic disorders, etc. In this paper we analyze all entities of genetic origin neonatally recognizable by their phenotype which must be included in the differential diagnosis of all children neurologically compromised...

The cardiovascular diseases are considered the cause but frequent of death in the developed and developing countries, most important it is the ischemic cardiopathy. The patients with acute coronary isquemic syndromes (ACIS) nowadays can be classified in two groups: those that present/ display elevation of segment ST (ESST) and those that does not have this elevation in the electrocardiogram of surface (SEST); it has importance the duration of the pain, the frequency and intervals in the episodes of angina and if is triggered in the rest or with the effort...

The involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) by schistosomes may or may not determine clinical manifestations. When symptomatic, neuroschistosomiasis (NS) is one of the most severe presentations of schistosome infection. Considering the symptomatic form, Schistosoma mansoni causes almost always spinal cord disease. Cerebral and spinal cord disorders in S. mansoni infections are inflammatory conditions of the CNS that cause mild-moderate impairment of the blood-brain barrier and intrathecal synthesis of antibodies against schistosomal antigens...

In this review the meaning of cerebral hemispheric function is discussed with special emphasis in non-dominant cerebral hemisphere and particularly in the lesion of commissural, association, projection of white matter fibers. Clinical characteristics depend on etiology, localization, extension and particularly the period of brain development. The following are common findings in these patients: left hemiplegia, abnormal prosody and non verbal communication, anomalies visiospatial perception, organization, and social interaction...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasonic tissue characterization (UTC), as evaluated through integrated backscatter, has the potential to detect precocious structural damage to myocardial tissue. In acute coronary syndromes (ACS) this technique is attracting attention due to its potential to evaluate myocardial viability. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of UTC in the emergency department. METHODS: We studied 28 individuals, classified in three groups: Group I (13; 52...

The cases of hyperlipoproteinemic secondary type IV are manifested by elevation of triglycerides, with normal or high cholesterol and lightly high homocysteine. The effect of vitamins B12, B6 and folic acid, on homocysteine and lipids, in 24 male patients, 35-68 years, with hiperlipoproteinemia secondary type IV with myocardial isquemic, and without previous treatment of hipolipemiant, was investigated. The patients were supplemented with therapeutic doses tablets of vitamin B12, 500 (microg/day); B6, (600 mg/day) and folic acid (20 mg/ day), during 120 days...

Priapism is defined as persistent erection without sexual stimulus. The new classifications make a distinction between venooclusive low flow priapism, isquemic and arterial high flow priapism, non isquemic. The perineal or penis trauma are responsible the most of cases arterial priapism, formation of an arteriocavernous fistula. The diagnosis is clinical, blood gas analysis and colour Doppler ultrasonography of the corpora cavernosa confirmed the diagnosis. The arteriography with selective embolization constitutes a safe and effective therapeutic method...
