Recurrent belly dancer dyskinesia in pregnancy

A 37-year-old woman in her 34th week of pregnancy developed continual abdominal movements, which had complicated both her previous pregnancies (video at Neurology.org). Examination, routine bloodwork, and brain MRI were normal. Circumstances precluded prepartum thoracolumbar MRI; postpartum MRI was unrevealing. Clonazepam and levetiracetam suppressed the movements, which remitted postpartum. All babies were healthy.

This retrospective study investigated the testicular sperm extraction (TESE)-ICSI outcomes of 9 couples with male Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) between September 2013-December 2017 at one fertility clinic. Two pronuclei (2PN) rate, blastocyst development rate, good-quality blastocyst (Grade 3BB and above on day 5 by the Gardner scale) rate, clinical pregnancy rate (CPR), and live birth rate were investigated and compared between embryos derived from motile testicular spermatozoa, immotile testicular spermatozoa and ejaculated sperm.

The objective of this review is to discuss the efficacy, tolerability, dosing, drug interactions, and precautions for valbenazine and deutetrabenazine. Tardive dyskinesia (TD) is defined as involuntary athetoid or choreiform movements lasting at least a few weeks and generally involving the tongue, face, and/or extremities, which develops in association with a neuroleptic medication usage for at least a few months.1 TD occurs in 32.4 percent of patients who receive typical antipsychotics and in 13.1 percent of patients who receive atypical antipsychotics.2 The pathophysiology of antipsychotic-induced TD is attributed to pr...

Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by abnormal motile ciliary function. Because motile cilia and sperm flagella share common axonemal structures, male individuals are supposed to be infertile and female may have hypofertility. We hypothesize that a correlation may exist between the risk of hypofertility and the genotype in PCD. We retrospectively recorded the fertility status of adult patients with a definite PCD diagnosis, based on ultrastructural phenotype and an established genotype based on the identification of two non-ambiguous mutations in a known PCD gene. Fertilit...

Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor encephalitis (anti-NMDARE) is a neurological disorder caused by production of antibodies to the NMDA receptor (NMDAR) and is usually associated with ovarian teratomas in women of child-bearing age. It is characterized by major psychiatric and neurologic symptoms, which may worsen with pregnancy. It often starts with a prodromal viral-like illness followed by predominantly psychiatric symptoms including agitation, paranoia, catatonia, and hallucinations. Neurologic symptoms including decreased consciousness, dyskinesia, seizures, autonomic dysfunction, central hypoventilation and dysthermia may develop.

This article reviews mechanisms of action, efficacy, tolerability (including adverse effects), dosing, and contraindications of cariprazine. Introduction Schizophrenia is characterized by at least two of the following symptoms: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized or catatonic behavior, or negative symptoms.[1] Bipolar disorder consists of manic, hypomanic, or mixed episodes alternating with depressive episodes.[2] Because second-generation or atypical antipsychotics reduce both positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia as well as manic and mixed episodes of bipolar disorder, they are recommen...

Conclusion Schizophrenia is a debilitating condition with significant morbidity and mortality. Many atypical antipsychotics improve functioning, but they carry risks for adverse effects. Brexpiprazole reduced symptoms of acute schizophrenia and prevented relapse with minimal adverse effects. It is an additional option for clinicians who treat patients with schizophrenia, and ongoing trials are assessing its efficacy as an adjunctive treatment for patients with posttraumatic stress disorder or behavioral disturbances associated with dementia.
