Testicular tumours are the most common tumours in young men. Germ cell tumours (GCTs) account for 95% of all testicular cancers, and the non-seminomatous type (NSGCT) accounts for 50% of all GCTs. Cisplatin-based chemotherapy is curative in up to 90% of patients, but it is not without its inherent risks. Ischaemic stroke is a very uncommon, but severe complication of cisplatin-based chemotherapy. Strokes in young patients cause a disproportionately large economic impact by leaving victims disabled during their most productive years and strains the healthcare system with expensive hospital stays...

We report a case of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) in a 14 year-old girl presenting a cerebral arterial thrombosis. The initial diagnosis was carential anemia due to menarche following identification of slight macrocytic anemia, leucopenia and mild thrombocytopenia at routine blood analysis. The child was eventually referred to a children's hospital after the onset of progressive fatigue, anorexia and paleness. Severe anemia (hemoglobin 6 g/dL) with negative Coombs test, mild leucopenia (white blood cells 4...

[Purpose] While electromyography (EMG) biofeedback has been recently used in diverse therapeutic interventions for stroke patients, research on its effects has been lacking. Most existing studies are confined to functions of the lower extremities, and research on upper extremity functional recovery using EMG biofeedback training is limited. Therefore, this study examined the effects of training using EMG biofeedback on stroke patients' upper extremity functions. [Subjects and Methods] The subjects of this study included 30 hemiplegia patients whose disease duration was longer than six months...

Disability continues to be one of the leading reasons individuals affected by stroke are left incapable of performing daily activities. Due to the staggering number of disabled adults suffering post-stroke neurological damage, there is a critical need for creating and monitoring effects of successful, intensive stroke therapies. Behavioral assessments are useful tools by which to examine the effectiveness of these stroke therapies as they allow for the investigation of multiple variables, including task performance time, performance quality, and degree of motor function...

Somatoparaphrenia (SP) typically occurs after a right-hemisphere stroke, where the patient refers to his/her hemiplegic left hand as belonging to someone else. In this report, we review the literature for the brain structures affected in SP. We also report three cases with varying degrees of SP: a typical case, one case where SP affected the visceral sensations, and one case where a concurring psychiatric condition lead to a very complex, bizarre delusion.

BACKGROUND: Sporadic Hemiplegic Migraine is a rare form of migraine headache. Mutations in three different genes, two ion-channel genes and one encoding an ATP exchanger, CACNA1A, ATP1A2 and SCN1A are all responsible for the FHM phenotype, thus indicating a genetic heterogeneity for this disorder. Here, we described a de novo exonic duplication of ATP1A2 in an Italian patient with Hemiplegic Migraine. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe the case of a young woman (33 year old) who suffered from the age of 8 years of episodic weakness of the limbs, associated to other subjective and objective features...
