ConclusionOlder age at onset and presence of clinical and/or radiological disease activity correlated with accelerated disability progression in this cohort of PPMS patients.
ConclusionsOur results reinforce the distinct orofacial features of ERS, which are the clue for kidney examination and genetic testing. Here we report the largest series of patients with ERS of the same population, and describe, for the first time, a founder mutation for FAM20A gene. FAPEMIG, FAPESP, CAPES.
This study describes orofacial features in 17 patients with WBS.
The 22 q11.2 deletion syndrome, also known as DiGeorge syndrome, is the subject of the loss of a submicroscopic segment of DNA in the 22 q11.2 region. It presents a great variability of clinical characteristics in affected individuals. Among the clinical manifestations are fissure of the palate, nasal speech, cardiovascular problems, and dysmorphic facial features. This case report describes a 15-year-old girl, clinically diagnosed as having DiGeorge syndrome, who attended a dental service for patients with special needs presenting with malocclusion, difficulty in chewing, and suspected heart disease.
The objective is to report a 12-year-old male pediatric dental patient who is attended in the dental care service for patients with special needs. He was a heart patient and a carrier of Down syndrome, presenting aggressiveness and endurance on the dental attendance. His problem was a toothache; however, the clinical examination verified mixed dentition, periodontal disease, high incidence of dental caries, malocclusion, staining on teeth, mouth breathing, narrow palate, and macroglossia.
This article reports a clinical case of a 7-year-old male patient that has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and bipolar affective disorder under control, and he had mixed dentition, malocclusion, regular oral hygiene, and normal periodontal aspects. His main complaint was pain in element 64.
CONCLUSION: In patients with compressive cervical myelopathy, leptomeningeal contrast enhancement, a T2-weighted hypersignal exceeding the compression level on MRI, and the presence of extraneurological symptoms should point to inflammatory disease. These rare manifestations may be the first symptoms of sarcoidosis and should be recognized to avoid harmful surgical procedures and to provide appropriate medical treatment.

Discussion of the above theories and a description of the setting and the connection between the two is used propose a potential music therapy model for work with this population at this point during the clients’ lifespan.
In this study, 226 of 250 invited patients through special needs schools, the National Down Syndrome Society, and relevant nonprofit organizations were included. In Noor Eye Hospital, the patients underwent a complete eye examination by a general ophthalmologist and suspect cases were reexamined by a sub-specialist. Examinations included ocular alignment, conjunctiva, eyelid, lacrimal system, cornea, iris, and lens assessment.Results: Mean age of participants was 16.05 ± 4.82 years and 53.0% were male. The most common ocular abnormalities were blepharitis (81.9%, 95% CI:78.0 to 85.3), lens opacity (37...
DiscussionResults of the selected studies are only partially comparable or generalizable because of differences in study design. They have a risk for potential biases, although they provide (if analyzed) readily available prognostic factors, easy to apply in clinical practice. Prospective, population-based studies with EEG-defined NS are warranted in order to produce evidence-based guidance for management of preterm newborns with seizures.
