Migraine in sarcoidosis

Jeffrey M Gelfand, Amy A Gelfand, Peter J Goadsby, Bryan S Benn, Laura L Koth
Objective To describe the frequency of migraine and predictors of having migraine in sarcoidosis patients. Methods The ID migraine questionnaire was administered to a well-phenotyped observational cohort of sarcoidosis patients (most of whom were seeking specialty care) and healthy controls. Predictors of migraine status were examined using univariate and multivariable logistic regression. Results Migraine was seen in 29% of 96 patients with sarcoidosis and 13% of 39 healthy controls, ( p = 0.049). Among those with sarcoidosis, in univariate regression analysis only female sex was predictive of having migraine, and in a multivariable regression female sex remained significant (OR 4...

INTRODUCTION: The celiac disease is an autoimmune bowel disease trigger by gliadine proteins, that can has systemic involvement with varied neurological manifestation since polineuropathy, ataxia, epilepsy, migraine to encephalitis. The aim of the current work is to report a case of possible refractory encephalitis due to celiac disease. CASE REPORT: A 45 years-old man with histopathologic diagnosis of celiac disease but negative celiac antibodies developed encephalic, brainstem and periphery nervous system manifestations: cognitive declaim and seizures, diplopia and ataxia, polyneuropathy and polyradiculopathy respectively; inflammatory cebrospinal fluid and cortico-subcortical and multiple brainstem lesions with mild contrast enhancement; the neurologic deficits progress in spite of gluten a free diet and immuno-suppressive treatment...

Many neuro-ophthalmic diseases have a clear sex predilection, which is important to recognize in making the diagnosis based on risk stratification and understanding the pathogenesis of the disease. This review discusses the more common neuro-ophthalmic diseases with a female predilection, including idiopathic intracranial hypertension, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, meningioma, multiple sclerosis, migraine, breast-cancer associated neuro-ophthalmic manifestations, sarcoidosis, bisphosphonate-associated orbital inflammation, and pregnancy-related neuro-ophthalmic disorders...

Diagnostic criteria of sarcoidosis were offered in the 60-ies of XX century, however today the problem of sarcoidosis is difficult for understanding the different specialists and early detection. The development of laboratory diagnostic of viral infections and introduction of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has greatly improved the level of diagnosis of herpes infections, reveal the previously unknown etiology of many diseases: sarcoidosis (granulomatosis), migraine, multiple sclerosis, cystic prenatal brain damage, convulsions, Hodgkin's disease and others...

PATIENT: Female, 43 FINAL DIAGNOSIS: - SYMPTOMS: Diarrhea • generalized weakness • headache • lightheadedness • nausea • rash • short of breath • vomiting MEDICATION: - Clinical Procedure: - Specialty: Pulmonology. OBJECTIVE: Rare diseae. BACKGROUND: IFN-alpha-2b in combination with ribavirin is now the standard of care for the treatment of hepatitis C. Sarcoidosis is a chronic multisystem granulomatous disorder characterized by noncaseating granulomas in the involved organs...

2013 has been the year of large genetic studies of the GWAS type (Genome wide association studies) in common diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, aimed at localization of candidate genes. It was also the year of population-based studies from huge public or private registers. Thus, epidemiologic correlations have been put forward: psoriasis and vascular risk, psoriasis and rhinosinusitis, rosacea and migraine, acne and food habits, eczema and basal-cell carcinoma, vitiligo and lower risk of skin cancer, cutaneous Ro/SS-A pos lupus and cancer, chronic eczema and calcium-channel inhlbitors, pemphigoid and loop diuretics...

Significant contributions on the neuroophthalmologic manifestations of systemic disease have been published in the past year. The first part of this paper is devoted to practical guidelines that may help in the diagnosis and the management of oculomotor disorders, especially in connection with systemic diseases; the second part is focused on specific entities. Including idiopathic intracranial hypertension and ophthalmoplegic migraine in this review might be debatable; however, although the cause of these conditions is still unclear, relevant findings suggest that they may be the consequence of other adjacent processes rather than the cause itself...

Sarcoidosis is a multi-system disease of unknown etiology with abnormal immune response. Neurosarcoidosis affects 3 to 5% of all patients with sarcoidosis. A case of the patient with neurosarcoidosis, has been presented in this article. He has had leptomeningeal involvement and white matter lesions of the left cerebral hemisphere and clinically, transient neurological deficit, generalised epileptic seizures and migraine headache.

It is widely accepted that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings are not totally specific for the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. White matter lesions that mimic those of multiple sclerosis may be detected in both normal volunteers and patients harbouring different diseases. Virtually all the characteristic features of multiple sclerosis are sometimes encountered in other conditions affecting predominantly the white matter. Different conditions such as vasculitis, subcortical atherosclerotic leukoencephalopathy, Lyme disease, or acute disseminated encephalomyelitis can be virtually indistinguishable from multiple sclerosis on conventional MR images...

Since Hunt et al's description (1961) Tolosa-Hunt syndrome has been a matter of controversies about its nosological identity and differential diagnosis. We report 7 cases diagnosed between 1979 and 1990. Four of them had a low-resolution CT and the diagnosis was made after a long follow-up, according to classical criteria of exclusion. The last 3 cases had a modern high-resolution CT or a MRI (2 cases) and the diagnosis was established in a few days. MRI has considerably simplified the differential diagnosis but it has not completely resolved it...

The differential diagnosis of trigeminal neuropathy is quite challenging because there is a significant variety of causes for the disorder. We reviewed our cases of trigeminal neuropathy by studying first the initial manifestations in order to evaluate their underlying disorders. Sixty-four patients with trigeminal neuropathy came to our Out-Patients clinic. We have excluded from our analysis any patients with atypical pain, facial migraine, nasal sinusitis, pain from inflammation of dental pulp or facial bones, and pretrigeminal neuralgia...

The authors begin by enumerating the various syndromes in which painful ophthalmoplegia may be observed (sphenoidal fissure syndrome, Collier's syndrome, syndromes involving the orbital apex, the cavernous sinus and parasellar syndromes; Raeder's syndrome, Gradenigo's syndrome and Fischer-Brugge syndrome). They then discuss the various causes that must be investigated in all cases of painful ophtalmoplegia. They consider in order: -- ophtalmoplegia due to general causes (especially diabetes) and neurological causes (e...
