We thank Dr Reiffel for his interest in our case description1 and his comments. Indeed, the presence of precordial T-wave inversions in the setting of pulmonary embolism has been described periodically in the literature. The cases described by Dr Reiffel supplement the cases we referenced in our report to reinforce this point. Two theories are often cited as an explanation for this finding. The first is heightened sympathetic tone caused by an autonomic nervous system –mediated response triggered by acute pulmonary embolism.

Authors: Fernandez-Gomez F, Tran H, Dhaenens CM, Caillet-Boudin ML, Schraen-Maschke S, Blum D, Sablonnière B, Buée-Scherrer V, Buee L, Sergeant N Abstract Myotonic dystrophies (DM) are rare inherited neuromuscular disorders linked to microsatellite unstable expansions in non-coding regions of ubiquitously expressed genes. The DMPK and ZNF9/CNBP genes which mutations are responsible for DM1 and DM2 respectively. DM are multisystemic disorders with brain affection and cognitive deficits. Brain lesions consisting of neurofibrillary tangles are often observed in DM1 and DM2 brain. Neurofibrillary tangles ...

Cilia both receive and send information, the latter in the form of extracellular vesicles (EVs). EVs are nano-communication devices that influence cell, tissue, and organism behavior. Mechanisms driving ciliary EV biogenesis are almost entirely unknown. Here, we show that the ciliary G-protein Rab28, associated with human autosomal recessive cone-rod dystrophy, negatively regulates EV levels in the sensory organs ofCaenorhabditis elegans in a cilia specific manner. Sequential targeting of lipidated Rab28 to periciliary and ciliary membranes is highly dependent on the BBSome and the prenyl-binding protein phosphodiesterase ...

ConclusionsDysfunctions of the oculomotor and abducens nerves recovered within 6  months postoperatively. Tumor extension into the suprasellar region/sphenoid sinus was the only risk factor for oculomotor nerve paralysis. Eye/eyelid movements were more sensitive than the pupillary light reflex in reflecting nerve dysfunctions. Intraoperative utilization of the infratrigeminal i nterspace was the only risk factor for abducens nerve paralysis.
