AIM: The paralysis of the ramus marginalis mandibulae nervus facialis may occur in Hemifacial Microsomia (HM); the combination of both HM and palsy contributes to an elongation of the mandibular body. This study explores a possible correlation between neurological deficit, muscular atony, and structural deficiency. STUDY DESIGN: Of 58 patients with HM who had come to the University of Rome (Sapienza) Pre-surgical Orthodontics Unit, 4 patients were afflicted with Hemifacial Microsomia and ramus marginalis mandibulae nervus palsy; these patients underwent physical, neurological, opthamologic and systemic examinations...

A prospective observational study was conducted on patients undergoing posterior lumbar spine surgery for degenerative spinal disorders. The study purpose was to evaluate the effect of wait time to surgery on patient derived generic and disease specific functional outcome following surgery. A prolonged wait to surgery may adversely affect surgical outcome. Although there is literature on the effect of wait time to surgery in surgical fields such as oncology, cardiac, opthamologic, and total joint arthroplasty, little is known regarding the effect of wait time to surgery as it pertains to the spinal surgical population...

PURPOSE: Recent reports show that marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MeSCs) may have the ability to differentiate into diverse cell types unrelated to their phenotypical embryonic origin, including neural cells. While demonstrated "in vitro" and neonatally, efforts to demonstrate this ability in adult animal brains have had limited success. If it can be shown that human MeSC (HMeSC) can differentiate into neural cells in adult brain, it would open up the possibility that HMeSCs may be of potential therapeutic use in cell replacement therapies for neurological diseases...

Oxidative stress, the result of cellular production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), has been implicated in a number of diseases of the eye. Exposure of eye tissues (e.g. the cornea and retina) to oxidative stress over time has been hypothesized to underlie the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and maturity onset cataract formation. Light-induced free radicals can damage the eye, and alterations in the antioxidant defenses of the eye have been suggested to play a role in the etiology of glaucoma...

A 5-yr-old boy who diagnosed acute liver failure and Stage IV hepatic encephalopathy underwent living related liver transplantation and awakened with persistent hand motions visual loss. Serum Tacrolimus, electrolytes, magnesium levels were normal as well as blood pressure. His neurologic and opthamologic examinations were otherwise normal. Visual evoked potential (VEP) was prolonged and brain magnetic resonance immaging (MRI) revealed bilateral parietooccipital white matter signal abnormalities with gliosis...

The aim of this retrospective study was to determine the epidemiological characteristics of the sensory heterotropia cases seen in the Opthamology Department of Douala General Hospital between November 1991 and November 1999. Sensory heterotropia accounted for 22.5% of the cases of strabismus reported. Onset was before the age of one year in 80.4% of cases and after the age of one year in 19.6% of cases. All cases of esotropia were apparent before the age of one year. Sensory heterotropia was associated with amblyopia in 89...

Eales' disease (ED) is a rare condition characterized by repeated retinal and vitreous hemorrhages. The only extraocular involvement described occasionally in the literature is neurological. Histologically, vasculitis in ED is usually restricted to the eye, but occasionally involves the central nervous system, where demyelinizing lesions may also occur. We present a 34-year-old male with ED and subclinical central nervous system involvement. Craneal magnetic resonance images (MR) suggested demyelinization; brainstem auditory and somatosensory evoked potentials were abnormal...
