Publication date: Available online 30 December 2017Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Andrea Guerra, Virginia López-Alonso, Binith Cheeran, Antonio SuppaAbstractIn the last three decades, a number of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) protocols, capable of assessing and modulating plasticity in the human motor cortex (M1), have been described. For almost as long, NIBS has delivered the tantalising prospect of non-invasive neuromodulation as a therapeutic intervention for neurorehabilitation, psychiatry, chronic pain and other disease states. Apart from modest effects in depression, this early promise has not ...

We present a case of a young male that was unaware of his heterotaxy syndrome. He presented with atypical signs of appendicitis secondary to an abnormal position of his appendix. Incidentally, his rare and fairly unheard of condition, heterotaxy syndrome, was only discovered because he was afflicted with a well-known and common condition, appendicitis.

We report two cases of WWTR1-CAMTA1 fusion-positive epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas (EHEs) with extremely different clinical behaviors. The first case was a 52-year-old Japanese woman with a complaint of an enlarging right axillary mass. Surgical specimen showed that the epithelioid tumors within the vein had the pathological feature of a cord-like pattern with myxoid or hyaline matrix and the intracytoplasmic lumen with erythrocytes and the immunophenotype of endothelial cells. The final pathological diagnosis was classic EHE. An RT-PCR analysis showed positivity of WWTR1-CAMTA1 fusion. The patient has now been free of ...
ConclusionsAssessment of comorbidities, psychological health and physical activity should be taken into account in order to address frequent RA-related severe fatigue.
