HSV-2 Encephalitis Presenting as Multifocal Ischemic Stroke (P4.375)
CONCLUSION A high index of suspicion needs to be maintained to diagnose infectious vasculitis. A history of immunosuppression and headache preceding cerebral infarction were important factors that ultimately led to the appropriate work up and diagnosis in this case. Lumbar puncture and prompt initiation of antiviral treatment is essential in stroke case of suspected CNS infection with HSV-2.Disclosure: Dr. Zhang has nothing to disclose.

Conclusion: Severe acute pancreatitis during pregnancy leads to a high rate of fetal mortality.Gestational trimester, delayed diagnosis, HTG, MOF, gestational diabetes mellitus, and preeclampsia are predictors of fetal loss. Therefore, close monitoring is essential for pregnancies complicated with HTG, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. PMID: 32249649 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Migraine is a highly prevalent and disabling disorder accounted among the primary headaches. It is the expression of a complex, and not yet fully understood, pathophysiology involving the sensitization of peripheral and central nociceptive pathways. In this review we succinctly illustrate the molecular, anatomical, and functional abnormalities underlying the migraine attack that are relevant for understanding in more depth the neurobiology behind the therapeutic effect of Botulinum Toxin Type A (BoNT-A). BoNT-A has proved effective in several neurological conditions and, more recently, also in chronic mig...
Conclusion: The inflammatory burden possibly plays a less important role in the development of cardiovascular disease in inflammatory bowel disease patients but future larger prospective studies are needed.
Objectives: We have previously shown that patterns of splenic arterial enhancement on computed tomography scan change following liver transplantation. We suggested that this is related to changes in portal venous pressure. The aim of this study was to see if similar patterns occur in patients with and without portal hypertension and in patients before and after portal systemic shunts (transjugular portosystemic shunts). Methods: We evaluated contrast enhanced computed tomography scans in patients being evaluated for liver disease and compared those from patients with and without portal hypertension. In addition we eva...
