Has anyone heard of this? I have a patient who just presented with weight loss and headache- found to have CA lung (most likely, biopsy pending) and a cerebellar lesion. He has always been completely bald but over the past few months, his hair have grown back and now has a full head of hair!! Im guessing its some kind of paraneoplastic phenomenon, but I couldn't find any info?

Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Neuroscience ResearchAuthor(s): Zhaofa Wu, Yulong LiAbstractPurinergic transmitters such as adenosine, ADP, ATP, UTP, and UDP-glucose play important roles in a wide range of physiological processes, including the sleep-wake cycle, learning and memory, cardiovascular function, and the immune response. Moreover, impaired purinergic signaling has been implicated in various pathological conditions such as pain, migraine, epilepsy, and drug addiction. Examining the function of purinergic transmission in both health and disease requires direct, sensitive, non-invasive too...

With all the advances in modern medicine, it can be easy to wonder if there is a medication to stop drinking. Unfortunately, getting sober from alcohol isn’t as easy as simply taking medication. In addition to medication, therapy is required for the best long-term results, as well as support from loved ones and ongoing aftercare. However, there are some medications to help along in the process to stop withdrawal symptoms, block cravings, and create an aversion to alcohol. It is important to not rely only on medication to stop drinking. A commitment to behavioral therapy, holistic therapy, family involvement, self-ca...

Authors: Kanno H, Yoshizumi T, Nakazato N, Shinonaga M Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: An epidural blood patch (EBP) is a highly effective therapy for spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage. However, the factors predicting the response to an EBP have not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to elucidate factors predicting the response to an EBP. METHODS: We retrospectively examined the relationship between the response to an EBP and clinical variables of 118 patients with spinal CSF leakage, such as patient age, sex, etiology, interval from the onset to EBP application, CSF opening pressure (OP),...

Purpose of review Visual snow is considered a disorder of central visual processing resulting in a perturbed perception of constant bilateral whole-visual field flickering or pixelation. When associated with additional visual symptoms, it is referred to as visual snow syndrome. Its pathophysiology remains elusive. This review highlights the visual snow literature focusing on recent clinical studies that add to our understanding of its clinical picture, pathophysiology, and treatment. Recent findings Clinical characterization of visual snow syndrome is evolving, including a suggested modification of diagnostic criteria...

Purpose of review To present evidence of a functional interrelation between the vestibular and the anxiety systems based on a complex reciprocally organized network. The review focuses on the differential effects of various vestibular disorders, on psychiatric comorbidity, and on anxiety related to vertigo. Recent findings Episodic vertigo syndromes such as vestibular migraine, vestibular paroxysmia, and Menière's disease are associated with a significant increase of psychiatric comorbidity, in particular anxiety/phobic disorders and depression. Chronic unilateral and bilateral vestibulopathy (BVP) do not exhib...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Human Pathology: Case Reports, Volume 19Author(s): Sofiene Bouali, Kamel Bahri, Alia Zehani, Khalil Ghedira, Khansa Abderrahmen, Jalel KallelAbstractIntracranial tuberculoma mostly occurs in supratentorial location in adult patients and there are isolated cases with Infratentorial tuberculoma reported in the literature in the last 10 years. A 49-year-old man presented with progressive staggering gait and headache for 3 months and was diagnosed with a giant cerebullar tuberculoma. Although rare, our case demonstrates that tuberculoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis ...

This study was conducted between January 1, 2019, and July 25, 2019, at the neurology and biochemistry clinics of two different tertiary hospitals simultaneously. Overall, 50 RRMS patients with migraine, 50 RRMS patients without migraine, and 50 healthy volunteers were included in the study. The participants’ vitamin D, VITDBP, VITDR, hs-CRP, SOD, CAT, GSH-Px, TAS, TOS, and OSI values were measured.Results: The vitamin D and VITDR values of the RRMS patients with migraine were lower than those of the RRMS patients without migraine (respectively, p = 0.014, p

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine reported a record number of Lyme disease cases last year, and the number could rise as data continues to trickle in, officials said Thursday. There were at least 2,079 cases in 2019, the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported. It’s too early to say why the numbers grew last year. But the numbers underscore the importance of taking precautions to avoid tick bites, said Dr. Nirav Shah, director of the Maine CDC. Winter is a time of low ticket activity. But ticks can be active when the temperature climbs above 40, as it did last weekend in Maine. The state also experie...

We report a case of SIH followed with brain infarction, with a distinct presentation from previous literature, suggesting a different mechanism. A 35 year-old had severe orthostatic headache, responsible for prolonged bed rest. One month later, he had acute left hemiparesis secondary to stroke and right posterior cerebral artery occlusion. Stroke MRI showed arguments for intracranial hypotension (thickened meninges). He was successfully treated with intravenous rtPA thrombolysis. Headache were resolved after an epidural blood patch. A patent foramen ovale was detected. Clinical features of this description were compar...
