We report the case of a 67-year-old male who presented with a six-week history of progressive unsteadiness, cognitive impairment and weight loss, in the context of a recent bereavement. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed several weeks earlier excluded acute stroke. Examination revealed gross bilateral ataxia, bradyphrenia and physical manifestations of depression. Collateral history suggested rapidly progressing symptoms over three months. Repeat MRI head showed features suggestive of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) including T2 hyperintensities in the basal ganglia. Cerebrospinal ˜fluid (CSF) samples were po...

Conclusion: Since CADASIL is a rare disease, it is imperative to raise awareness of its unique clinical condition as well as variation in its clinical presentations. It is crucial that the overlapping symptoms between MS and CADASIL be thoroughly examined to avoid misdiagnosis and treatment complications. The involvement of autoimmune mechanisms in CADASIL and the role of NOTCH3 gene mutations in provoking an autoimmune process should be further investigated.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Post-stroke sitting balance is a known predictor of independence of gait after stroke. However, previous studies used only qualitative scales or measured static or dynamic sitting balance alone. OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether quantitative parameters of sitting posturography at post-stroke 1 month can predict independent gait. METHODS: In this prospective cohort study, we enrolled patients with first-ever stroke who could hold a sitting posture at post-stroke 1 month. Sitting balance was assessed using posturography at post-stroke 1 month. Independence of gait was a...

Abstract Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is primarily characterized by migraine, stroke, mood disturbances, and cognitive decline. Ataxia has seldom been reported as a presenting symptom. Here, we review reports of CADASIL presenting as ataxia and compare these to the first pathologically confirmed case of CADASIL presenting with progressive ataxia. A 50-year-old woman presented with progressive truncal ataxia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed white matter hyperintensities in the bilateral anterior temporal lobes, external capsules...
