The Protean Neuropsychiatric and Vestibuloauditory Manifestations of Neurosarcoidosis

Conclusions: Neurosarcoidosis is an elusive diagnosis and can cause hearing loss and psychiatric symptoms. Cochlear implantation for patients with severe hearing loss should be considered once the diagnosis is confirmed, as it is possible to achieve a successful level of hearing. Psychiatric symptoms can manifest with the onset of neurosarcoidosis, result from CN deficits, or develop as a side effect from long-term, high-dose corticosteroids, and should be monitored carefully in patients with neurosarcoidosis.Audiol Neurotol 2017;22:205-217

Material and methods: A total of 30 female rats were divided into three groups. Group I was administered intraperitoneal and intragastric saline; group II was administered oral 3 mg/kg methotrexate; and group III was administered oral 3 mg/kg methotrexate + intraperitoneal 200 mg/kg clarithromycin for 28 days.

In conclusion… It’s true: medical myths die hard. In fact, some seem immortal. One could argue that’s as it should be. After all, yesterday’s medical myth is only one discovery away from becoming tomorrow’s medical fact. Still, when the evidence is compelling, I think we’d be better off letting go of what’s been disproven, give more credence to evidence than folklore, and keep an open mind — just in case the evidence changes. When my patients tell me they can predict the weather by how their joints feel, I believe them. It’s hard to discount it when so many people noti...

Conclusions: Our study shows that risk factors for new-onset atrial fibrillation during sepsis are mainly factors that are associated with the acute sepsis event and are not synonymous with risk factors for community-associated atrial fibrillation. Our results provide targets for future studies focused on atrial fibrillation prevention and have implications for several key areas in the management of patients with sepsis such as glucocorticoid administration, vasopressor selection, and blood pressure targets.
