ConclusionDuring the current context of COVID-19 pandemic, physicians should be aware of wide spectrum of neurological COVID-19 sign and symptoms for early diagnosis and isolation of patients. In this regard, COVID-19 has been associated with many neurological manifestations such as confusion, anosmia, and ageusia. Also, various evidences support the possible CNS roles in the COVID-19 pathophysiology. In this regard, further investigation of CNS involvement of SARS-COV-2 is suggested.

DISCUSSION: Parents' attitudes and behaviors toward their child's headache have a strong relation with the severity of headache attacks. Mothers seem to have more influence than fathers on children's pain and emotional regulation. We suggest that the presence of caregiver-child transmission of maladaptive coping strategies, arising from difficulties expressing emotion, may lead to incorrect management of headache pain, further facilitating headache chronification.

ConclusionsFM patients most commonly showed a mild loss of peripheral nociceptors at the thigh rather than distal small fiber neuropathy. This finding was associated with an altered habituation index and strengthened the hypothesis that central sensitization plays a key role in the pathogenesis of the disease.SignificanceCentral impairment of pain processing likely underlies FM, which in most patients is associated with mild proximal small fiber pathology.

AbstractClinical features of COVID-19 have been mostly described in hospitalized patients with and without ICU admission. Yet, up to 80% of patients are managed in an outpatient setting. This population is poorly documented. In France, health authorities recommend outpatient management of patients presenting mild-to-moderate COVID-19 symptoms. The aim of this study was to describe their clinical characteristics. The study took place in an emergency medical dispatching center located in the Greater Paris region. Patients included in this survey met confirmed COVID-19 infection criteria according to the WHO definition. We in...

Am J Perinatol DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1712170 Objective Emergent postpartum hospital encounters in the first 42 days after birth are estimated to complicate 5 to 12% of births. Approximately 2% of these visits result in admission. Data on emergent visits and admissions are critically needed to address the current maternal morbidity crisis. Our objective is to characterize trends in emergent postpartum hospital encounters and readmissions through chief complaints and admission diagnoses over a 4.5-year period. Study Design All postpartum hospital encounters within 42 days of delivery at our institution from 201...

In this study, five new evaluators reviewed each other’s readings of the scans, and the researchers rated how well the evaluators agreed with one another’s assessments. Perfect agreement was scored as 1, and no agreement was scored as 0. Agreement was 0.87 across all 241 patients.The most common side effects were headache, pain at the injection site, and increased blood pressure, with all side effects occurring in less than 1.5% of the patients.Flortaucipir F18 was developed by Avid Radiopharmaceuticals Inc., a subsidiary of Eli Lilly and Co. In astatement, Lilly noted that availability of flortaucipir F18 will...

ABSTRACT A 45-year-old man presents with occipital headache for about one month, resistant to analgesic therapy, and palpable nodule at the pain site. At initial evaluation, the nodule was 1.5 cm in diameter without apparent skin alteration. Ultrasonography revealed a well-defined osteolytic lesion and doubtful communication with the dura mater. The study was complemented with computed tomography and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance, both identifying lytic lesion with soft tissue component and contrast enhancement, without diffusion restriction, guiding the diagnostic hypothesis of eosinophilic granuloma. Surgical trea...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIntracranial dermoid cysts are benign, rare mass-occupying lesions of the central nervous system arising from the neuroectodermal cell lines. While rupture of intracranial dermoid cysts is rare, it can present with a variety of clinical manifestations. To explore the headache manifestations among patients with ruptured intracranial dermoid cysts. To our knowledge, limited studies focusing on headache due to the intracranial dermoid cysts rupture have been published to date. A literature review was done through PubMed/Medline. Articles within the past 10  years were reviewed. Articles in langua...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPrimary headaches are less common and differ in presentation in older versus younger individuals. Secondary headaches become more common among older patients.Recent FindingsDiagnosis and management of headaches in those>  65 years are discussed. Migraine and tension-type headaches are rarely new onset in this age group and should be a diagnosis of exclusion. In older individuals, migraine is more likely to be bilateral with less sensory sensitivities. Migraine aura may present without headache; careful assessment is needed to exclude stroke. Other primary headaches discussed include ...
