This article focuses on potential toxic risk to the fetus of medications deemed necessary to manage several common maternal neurologic issues: m ultiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and headache during pregnancy and postpartum. It is important for the practitioner to have an understanding beyond the category system to understand the potential toxic risks to the infant.

Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the abnormal EEG group had more significant disruptions in their daily lives due to headaches than the normal EEG group and that patients with migraines with aura may need EEGs and they might also have overlapping pathophysiologic mechanisms with epilepsy.

The objective of this review was to summarize the findings of the INPH-CRasH study. METHODS: VRFs, comorbidities, QOL, and adverse events were analyzed in consecutive patients with INPH who underwent shunt placement between 2008 and 2010 in 5 of 6 neurosurgical centers in Sweden. Patients (n = 176, within the age span of 60-85 years and not having dementia) were compared to population-based age- and gender-matched controls (n = 368, same inclusion criteria as for the patients with INPH). Assessed parameters were as follows: hypertension; diabetes; obesity; hyperlipidemia; psychosocial factors (stress and depression); ...

Conclusion: The current evidence suggests that there is insufficient evidence for recommending HM for TBI in clinical practice. Therefore, further larger, high-quality, rigorous RCTs should be conducted.

This article gives a summary of the main results of MEL therapy in some neurological diseases and insomnia approved by this consensus group. Exogenous MEL, which crosses the blood-brain barrier, has been used as a treatment in its two available forms: an immediate release form that principally shows a chronobiotic action and a long release form that mimics the physiological MEL secretion rhythm and is used to replace reduced physiological secretion. MEL secretion decreases frequently with age, mostly in elderly insomniacs and dementia patients. Results of level A studies show that MEL therapy, used as an add-on treatment, ...

We describe 5 independent Italian subjects presenting with progressive limb girdle muscular weakness, brain white matter abnormalities, merosin deficiency and LAMA2 gene mutations. We detected 7 different mutations, 6 of which are new. All patients showed normal psicomotor development and slowly progressive weakness with onset spanning from childhood to forties. Creatin-kinase levels were moderately elevated. One patient showed dilated cardiomyopathy. Muscle MRI allowed to evaluate the degree and pattern of muscular involvement in all patients. Brain MRI was fundamental in order to address and/or support the molecular diag...

Abstract AIM: We evaluated the clinical and demographic features of children presenting with unprovoked seizures at a regional new-onset seizure clinic (NOSc). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed charts of 492 consecutive patients evaluated in the NOSc at the Childrne's Healthcare of Atlanta RESULTS: Nonepileptic events (NEE) were diagnosed in 102 (24%) and epileptic seizures in the remaining 326 (76%). Patients with NEE were younger than patients with epileptic seizure (5.0 vs. 7.4 years). Except for headache which occurred more frequently in NEE (14% vs. 6%), frequencies of comorbidities were similar in ...

ConclusionComorbidities are common at MS symptom onset and increase with MS duration. Having MS may thus contribute to accrual of comorbidities. This emphasises the importance of optimal screening for and management of comorbidities in early MS and throughout the disease course.

AbstractThe recent pandemic outbreak of coronavirus is pathogenic and a highly transmittable viral infection caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2). In this time of ongoing pandemic, many emerging reports suggested that the SARS-CoV-2 has inimical effects on neurological functions, and even causes serious neurological damage. The neurological symptoms associated with COVID-19 include headache, dizziness, depression, anosmia, encephalitis, stroke, epileptic seizures, and Guillain-Barre syndrome along with many others. The involvement of the CNS may be related with poor prognosis and disease wo...
