Lyme neuroborreliosis-associated cerebrovascular events in the Finnish endemic area
Neuroborreliosis is a rare cause of cerebral vasculitis and stroke. The incidence of Lyme borreliosis in Finland has been increasing in the last 20 years, so we expect that Lyme neuroborreliosis–associated vasculitis can be a more common cause of stroke in the future.
Conclusion: Among individuals with obesity, the weight-loss group had a lower risk of coronary heart disease but not of stroke. Weight gain was associated with increased risk of CVD across BMI groups. See video abstract at, http://links.lww.com/EDE/B838.
In this study, which compares P. erythrurus with the lowlandPhrynocephalus przewalskii, we evaluated the locomotor performance at different body temperatures, the effects of temperature and oxygen partial pressure (PO2) on the contractile properties of iliofibularis (IF) muscle in vitro, ATPase activity of IF muscle at different temperatures, and the fiber types of IF muscle. LowlandP. przewalskii runs significantly faster than highlandP. erythrurus at all test body temperatures. Almost all contractile properties of the IF muscle ofP. przewalskii were better than that ofP. erythrurus under all test temperatures ...
ConclusionWe demonstrate that a microbial community with depleted Roseburia and enriched opportunistic pathogens is associated with increased risk of SAP among AIS patients. Gut microbiota screening might be useful for identifying patients at high risk for SAP and provide clues for stroke treatment.
CHOLESTEROL is both good and bad, but too much of the bad type can become a silent danger putting people at risk of heart attack and stroke.

CONCLUSIONS: Lyme Neuroborreliosis accounts for a small proportion of paediatric stroke even in an endemic country. The strong predilection towards posterior cerebral circulation with clinical occurrence of brainstem signs associated with meningeal symptoms and CSF lymphocytosis are suggestive features that should rapidly point to the diagnosis. This can confirmed by appropriate serological testing in the serum and CSF. Clinicians must be aware of this rare neurological complication of Lyme disease that demands specific antibiotic treatment.
