Congenital Mobile Atlantoaxial Dislocation with Cervicomedullary Astrocytoma in Pediatric Patient
We present a case of a 7-year-old male child who presented to us with gradually progressive spastic quadriparesis following a fall from table. His lateral radiograph and magnetic resonance images showed mobile atlantoaxial dislocation with intramedullary heterogeneously enhancing cervicomedullary mass. The patient underwent suboccipital craniectomy with C1–4 laminectomy. Tumor was pinkish grey, tenacious with ill-defined plane and cyst at poles. C1–C2 fusion was done using C1 lateral mass and C2 pars screw and rod system with onlay bone graft. Histopathology revealed pilocytic astrocytoma. At the time of discha...

Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reporting the safety and efficacy of balanced anaesthetic technique for concurrent ECoG and SCMEPM. Successful intraoperative ECoG and SCMEPM monitoring with absent intraoperative awareness confirmed the safety of our anaesthetic technique. Through this, a composite of patient safety, surgeon satisfaction and adequate intraoperative monitoring could be achieved. (Source: Neurology India)

Endovascular Treatment of a Primary Extracranial Vertebral Artery Aneurysm Causing Ischemic Stroke
Conclusion: Although aneurysms of this location are traditionally repaired with open aneurysmectomy, we show that endovascular treatment can be a safe and effective alternative approach. In the case reported here, primary extracranial vertebral artery aneurysm presenting with embolic stroke was successfully treated with a covered stent. Complete exclusion of the aneurysm from blood circulation is advisable to achieve full resolution of the embolic source. (Source: Neurology India)

An Unexpected Cause of Ptosis: 22q11.2 Duplication Syndrome
We describe a patient of 22q11.2 duplication syndrome presenting with bilateral ptosis who has normal psychomotor development. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging and electromyography with repetitive nerve stimulation were normal. Chromosome microarray analysis was performed, and the patient was found to have a de novo 2.8 Mb duplication at 22q11.21. To our knowledge, bilateral ptosis and normal psychomotor development with 22q11.2 duplication syndrome has not been described. The 22q11.2 duplication syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of ptosis. This case report contributes to an expanding clinical s...

The Relevance of Blepharoptosis in Diagnostic Suspicion of Myopathies
In this study, we report four patients with different myopathic disorders who had blepharoptosis as a presenting symptom of their disease. Moreover, we highlight frequent diagnostic errors and difficulties in patients with myopathies who present blepharoptosis. Lack of clear cut aggravation of symptoms by fatigue and response to cholinesterase inhibitors treatment, the association of proximal, distal or extraocular muscle weakness, and positive family history or evidence of a multi systemic disorder should prompt evaluation of an underlying myopathy.

Metronidazole-Induced Recurrent Paresthesia: A Case Report
Yunsoo SohNeurology India 2021 69(1):174-176 A 54-year-old woman presented with a 1-month history of pain and numbness in both feet. She had taken metronidazole for over 4 years previously to treat vaginitis. On nerve conduction studies (NCS), neither the sural nor right superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) was evoked, nor did the left SPN have small amplitude, suggesting axonal peripheral polyneuropathy with sensory fiber involvement. When she restarted metronidazole, she immediately complained of recurrent paresthesia of the feet. We performed three electromyography (EMG) studies and followed the patient for 6 months.

We report a case of 61-year-old man who sought consultation with phantom limb pain after his motor vehicular accident and below elbow amputation three years before the consultation. His pain was not relieved by analgesics alone and opted for spinal cord stimulation. Chronic Dual Channel dorsal column stimulation was done using Medtronic Prime Advance SCS System. He was in good pain relief and his VAS decreased from (8/10) to (2/10) but since the last six months follow-up he is complaining of pain again (4/10) for which he is taking analgesics too.
