Abstract Background: Chronic migraine with medication overuse headache (CM-MOH) is the most common type of chronic migraine, and it increases risk of stroke and white matter lesions. These pathologic changes could induce cognitive decline. However, the alteration of cognitive function in CM-MOH patients is not established. Therefore, we took this study to reveal the cognitive performances in CM-MOH. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted between December 2015 and January 2017. Patients were divided into CM-MOH, CMwoMOH (chronic migraine without medication overuse), and MO (migraine without aura) gr...

AbstractCathepsin-A-related arteriopathy with strokes and leukoencephalopathy (CARASAL) is an acronym that describes an ultra-rare, hereditary, cerebral small vessel disease. The aim is to summarize current knowledge and recent findings concerning phenotype, genotype, pathogenesis, diagnoses, and treatment options of CARASAL. The method used in the study is a systematic literature review. CARASAL is clinically characterized by a wide range of predominantly central nervous system abnormalities. These include migraine, stroke with central facial palsy, facial pain, non-positional vertigo, cognitive dysfunction with impaired ...

Discussion Facial nerve palsy has been known for centuries, but in 1821 unilateral facial nerve paralysis was described by Sir Charles Bell. Bell’s palsy (BP) is a unilateral, acute facial paralysis that is clinically diagnosed after other etiologies have been excluded by appropriate history, physical examination and/or laboratory testing or imaging. Symptoms include abnormal movement of facial nerve. It can be associated with changes in facial sensation, hearing, taste or excessive tearing. The right and left sides are equally affected but bilateral BP is rare (0.3%). Paralysis can be complete or incomplete at prese...
