Rotavirus encephalopathy with concomitant acute cerebellitis: report of a case and review of the literature.

We present an uncommon neurological manifestation of rotavirus infection in a 4-year-old Turkish child who presented with hypotonia, reduced consciousness and mutism. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed diffusion abnormalities in the splenium of corpus callosum and nucleus dentatus bilaterally. She was diagnosed with rotavirus cerebellitis. She improved well with dexamethasone and intravenous immunoglobulin but still has dysarthria and poor fine motor coordination. PMID: 32253876 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to assess the relative safety and short-term efficacy of drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) and conventional transarterial chemoembolization (c-TACE) for treating peculiar anatomical sites of gastric cancer liver metastasis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Of the 68 patients with gastric cancer liver metastases confirmed by imaging and pathology, 35 were treated with DEB-TACE and 33 with c-TACE. The DEB-TACE group comprised 26 males and 9 females aged 28-75 years (56.8±6.3), and the c-TACE group included 19 males and 14 females aged 33-77 (60.2±9.4) years. Liver functions of th...

Hi all, The CDC recommends the first immunization for live vaccines (s.a. MMR, Varicella) begin at 12 months of age. However, rotavirus is also a live vaccine but is administered at 2, 4, and 6 months, and is never administered after 8 months. I know that the rotavirus vaccine decreases the severity of illness if it is contracted and prevents most rotavirus cases in the US, but theoretically, why would this work before the immune system has matured enough?

Conclusion: Neurologists and radiologists need to become familiar with the diagnosis of these conditions since their presentations are peculiar and often subtle, and can easily be misdiagnosed as ischemic events, degenerative disease, demyelinating disease or even tumors.RESUMO Degenera ções transaxonais resultam da morte neuronal ou da interrupção de conexões sinápticas entre estruturas neurais. Essas degenerações não são comuns, mas podem ser reconhecidas por imagens de ressonância magnética convencional. Objetivo: Os objetivos de aprendiz...

CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study to provide prospective injury data on Ladies Gaelic football. Priority needs to be given to preventing hamstring and knee injuries due to their occurrence and negative impact on player availability to play. Collegiate Ladies Gaelic football teams should be encouraged to implement an injury-prevention warm-up, such as the GAA15+, at training and matches. PMID: 32473586 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Benign convulsions with mild gastroenteritis (BCWG) is recognized as a distinct clinical entity. Since it was first described in 1982 by Morooka [1], it has been mainly reported in East Asian countries such as Japan, China, and South Korea and occasionally reported in Western countries [2 –6]. BCWG has been defined as a syndrome characterized by afebrile convulsions occurring in otherwise healthy children with mild gastroenteritis who do not have meningitis, encephalitis, encephalopathy, dehydration, electrolyte imbalances or hypoglycemia and who have a benign prognosis [7,8].
