Giant posterior fossa tuberculoma in immunocompetent adults

Publication date: March 2020Source: Human Pathology: Case Reports, Volume 19Author(s): Sofiene Bouali, Kamel Bahri, Alia Zehani, Khalil Ghedira, Khansa Abderrahmen, Jalel KallelAbstractIntracranial tuberculoma mostly occurs in supratentorial location in adult patients and there are isolated cases with Infratentorial tuberculoma reported in the literature in the last 10 years. A 49-year-old man presented with progressive staggering gait and headache for 3 months and was diagnosed with a giant cerebullar tuberculoma. Although rare, our case demonstrates that tuberculoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of infratentorial tumor in immunocompetent adults.

Authors: Peri A Abstract In hypotonic hyponatremia, which is the most common form of hyponatremia, clinical manifestations are largely due to brain swelling caused by entry of water into the cells. In acute and severe hyponatremia, dramatic symptoms, such as seizures, acute psychosis, permanent brain damage, brain-stem herniation, leading to coma and death may occur. In chronic hyponatremia, symptoms are generally less dramatic and may include headache, nausea, vomiting, gait alterations, muscle cramps, restlessness, and disorientation. It has become evident in recent years that mild forms of chronic hyponatremia m...

Authors: Hew-Butler T Abstract Exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) refers to below-normal serum sodium concentrations [Na+] that develop during exercise. The pathogenesis of EAH is best described as a spectrum ranging between profound polydipsia to modest sweat sodium losses with hypovolemia and relative dilution. Non-osmotic arginine vasopressin (AVP) remains the unifying pathogenic stimulus to abnormal renal water retention in acute symptomatic EAH. Cases of hyponatremia are mostly reported after endurance sports, but are also observed after shorter duration events and in team sport athletes. The signs and sym...

Authors: Tai J, Zou J, Zhang X, Wang Y, Liang Y, Guo D, Wang M, Cui C, Wang J, Cheng J, Shi Y Abstract Background: Hypertension is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Tianma Gouteng decoction (TGD), originating from Zabingzhengzhixinyi, has been used for thousands of years in China to treat hypertension, giddiness, and migraine. This updated meta-analysis aimed at assessing the efficacy and safety of TGD combined with nifedipine in the treatment of primary hypertension. Methods: Related research published prior to September 1, 2019, was found in electronic databases without language limitati...

Conclusion: Our article draws attention to the higher cardiovascular risk profile of middle-aged migraineurs and highlights the deficiency of primary prevention. Pain physicians must be aware of the cardiovascular aspects of migraine and holistic approach is required instead of focusing only on pain and pain relief. PMID: 32089752 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Atypical MRI presentations of PRES are common, and there is a need to keep a strong index of suspicion for the diagnosis of PRES. The prognosis of PRES is good, and most cases show excellent recovery, particularly if underlying etiology can be treated satisfactorily.

This study aimed to assess whether AKL-T01 improved attentional performance in paediatric patients with ADHD. Findings: Between July 15, 2016, and Nov 30, 2017, 857 patients were evaluated and 348 were randomly assigned to receive AKL-T01 or control. Among patients who received AKL-T01 (n=180 [52%]; mean [SD] age, 9·7 [1·3] years) or control (n=168 [48%]; mean [SD] age, 9·6 [1·3] years), the non-parametric estimate of the population median change from baseline TOVA API was 0·88 (95% CI 0·24–1·49; p=0·0060). The mean (SD) change from baseline on the TOVA API was ...
