BACKGROUND: Delayed development of intracranial aneurysms is an extremely rare complication of gamma knife surgery (GKS), and so far only 6 cases have been reported. Furthermore, there are no reported cases after GKS for trigeminal neuralgia (TN). Of the above cases, none referred to the natural history or pathophysiology of GKS-related intracranial aneurysm formation. CASE DESCRIPTION: We treated 2 patients who suffered subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) due to ruptures of intracranial aneurysms that developed long after GKS...

Ischemic spinal cord infarction is rare in the paediatric population, and when it does occur, it is usually associated with traumatic injury. Other potential causes include congenital cardiovascular malformations, cerebellar herniation, thromboembolic disease and infection. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings can be subtle in the early evaluation of such patients. The outcome is variable and depends on the level and extent of the spinal cord infarct and subsequent rehabilitation. Here, we present two cases of ischemic spinal cord infarction in children...

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare multisystemic disease. LCH is characterized by proliferation of myeloid progenitors with altered differentiation program and similar phenotypic features to epidermal dendritic cells termed Langerhans cell. LCH cells express CD1a+ and langerin and exhibit BRAF V600E mutation in ∼50% of cases. Neurological involvement or neuro-LCH is observed in 5 to 10% of cases. Three subtypes of neuro-LCH are individualized. The tumor type, accounting for 45% of neuro-LCH, affect mainly young adults...

Balance impairment is common in people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) and frequently impacts quality of life by decreasing mobility and increasing the risk of falling. However, there are only scarce data examining the contribution of specific neurological functional systems on balance measures in MS. Therefore, the primary aim of our study was to examine the differences in posturography parameters and fall incidence according to the pyramidal, cerebellar and sensory systems functional systems in PwMS. The study included 342 PwMS, 211 women and mean disease duration of 8...

REVIEW
Hiroshi Mitoma, Mario Manto
Cerebellar ataxias represent a group of heterogeneous disorders impacting on activities of daily living and quality of life. Various therapies have been proposed to improve symptoms in cerebellar ataxias. This review examines the physiological background of the various treatments currently administered worldwide. We analyze the mechanisms of action of drugs with a focus on aminopyridines and other antiataxic medications, of noninvasive cerebellar stimulation, and of motor rehabilitation. Considering the cerebellum as a controller, we propose the novel concept of 'restorable stage'...

In patients with a triad of sensory ataxic neuropathy, dysarthria, and ophthalmoparesis (SANDO), the presenting features are mainly ataxia or ptosis. SANDO patients often have impaired balance and gait, which is not surprising considering the combination of sensory ataxic neuropathy, and additional symptoms like cerebellar ataxia and limb girdle weakness. We describe a SANDO patient who noticed an increasingly impaired balance and gait, without any dizziness. Neurological investigation revealed an external ophthalmeplegia and a cerebellar ataxia; the head impulse test was not reliable because of eye movement disorders...

It has been hypothesized that an important function of the cerebellum is predicting the state of the body during movement. Yet, the extent of cerebellar involvement in perception of limb state (i.e., proprioception, specifically limb position sense) has yet to be determined. Here, we investigated whether patients with cerebellar damage have deficits when trying to locate their hand in space (i.e., proprioceptive localization), which is highly important for everyday movements. By comparing performance during passive robot-controlled and active self-made multi-joint movements, we were able to determine that some cerebellar patients show improved precision during active movement (i...

Damage to the cerebellum can result in ataxic gait, which affects the ability to walk safely and independently. Physiotherapy is the main treatment for ataxic gait, but there is limited high-quality evidence for interventions used. This review explores the neural mechanisms of the symptoms of ataxic gait, by discussing the cerebellum's role in coordination, motor learning, anticipatory postural control, balance reactions and adapting gait to meet environmental demands. It discusses mechanisms that occur at cellular level throughout the whole cerebellum and then focuses on difficulties that arise from damage to specific lobes of the cerebellum...

Although cerebellar-cortical interactions have been studied extensively in animal models and humans using modern neuroimaging techniques, the effects of cerebellar stroke and focal lesions on cerebral cortical processing remain unknown. In the present study, we analyzed the large-scale functional connectivity at the cortical level by combining high-density electroencephalography (EEG) and source imaging techniques to evaluate and quantify the compensatory reorganization of brain networks after cerebellar damage...

Multimodal treatments are emerging as effective approaches for motor recovery in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Various evidence has demonstrated that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) may improve outcomes in people with motor disorders. Behavioral gains from rTMS protocols may be maximized when brain stimulation is coupled with carefully designed occupational/physical therapy. We present the case of a 25-year-old man with chronic TBI (a bilateral corticosubcortical parieto-occipital lesion) who underwent three weeks of cerebellar intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS), a form of rTMS, combined with neurorehabilitation treatment...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects between plum-blossom needle tapping at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with rehabilitation and simple rehabilitation for ataxia of cerebellar apoplexy. METHODS: Sixty patients with ataxia of cerebellar apoplexy were randomly divided into an observation group,and a control group,30 cases in each one. Conventional rehabilitation training was applied in the control group. While based on the treatment as that of the control group, plum-blossom needle tapping at Jiaji (EX-B 2) was used in the observation group...

Cerebellar stroke typically results in increased variability during walking. Previous research has suggested that auditory cueing reduces excessive variability in conditions such as Parkinson's disease and post-stroke hemiparesis. The aim of this case report was to investigate whether the use of a metronome cue during walking could reduce excessive variability in gait parameters after a cerebellar stroke. An elderly female with a history of cerebellar stroke and recurrent falling undertook three standard gait trials and three gait trials with an auditory metronome...

BACKGROUND: Aphasia is an acquired deficit in the ability to communicate through language. Noninvasive neuromodulation offers the potential to boost neural function and recovery, yet the optimal site of neuromodulation for aphasia has yet to be established. The right posterolateral cerebellum is involved in multiple language functions, interconnects with left-hemisphere language cortices, and is crucial for optimization of function and skill acquisition, suggesting that cerebellar neuromodulation could enhance aphasia rehabilitation...

PURPOSE: There is a lack of evidence-based recommendations for the physiotherapeutic intervention specifically for locomotor training in patients with cerebellar ataxia. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility and effect of a more specific rehabilitation strategy that aims to improve gait quality in patients with cerebellar ataxia. METHODS: Nineteen patients with degenerative cerebellar ataxia were recruited to participate in the study. The patients participated in a 12-week locomotor training program, two times per week for 1...

Spine surgery has been increased as the population ages, but the occurrence of unusual complication such as remote cerebellar hemorrhage (RCH) is not well understood. We recently experienced a case of RCH in a 60-year-old woman showed neurologic dysfunction after degenerative lumbar spine surgery. There was no definite dural tearing and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) loss during operation. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed cerebellar hemorrhage. The patient received conservative management and rehabilitation program...

OBJECTIVES: Although motor adaptation is a highly relevant process for both everyday life as well as rehabilitation many details of this process are still unresolved. To evaluate the contribution of primary motor (M1), parietal and cerebellar areas to motor adaptation processes transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been applied. We hypothesized that anodal stimulation of the cerebellum and the M1 improves the learning process in mirror drawing, a task involving fine grained and spatially well-organized hand movements...

Hereditary ataxias (HA) represents an extensive group of clinically and genetically heterogeneous neurodegenerative diseases, characterized by progressive ataxia combined with extra-cerebellar and multi-systemic involvements, including peripheral neuropathy, pyramidal signs, movement disorders, seizures, and cognitive dysfunction. There is no effective treatment for HA, and management remains supportive and symptomatic. In this review, we will focus on the symptomatic treatment of the main autosomal recessive ataxias, autosomal dominant ataxias, X-linked cerebellar ataxias and mitochondrial ataxias...
