Melatonin (MEL) and its use in neurological diseases and insomnia: Recommendations of the French Medical and Research Sleep Society (SFRMS).
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, ...

Spinal cord injury pain.
Authors: Attal N Abstract Spinal cord injury pain encompasses musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain. Its management is often multidisciplinary and involves specific drugs such as antidepressants and antiepileptics, and nonpharmacological treatment including psychotherapy, physical therapy and neuromodulation techniques. Recent progress in the diagnosis, assessment, and understanding of its mechanisms offers the perspective of a more rational therapeutic management, which should result in better therapeutic outcome.

Headaches during pregnancy.
Authors: de Gaalon S, Donnet A Abstract Headache during pregnancy is frequent and challenging. A secondary headache is diagnosed in one third of women, and most causes are vascular and infectious disorders. Anamnestic and clinical features must be investigated, and brain imaging is often required. Primary headaches are commonly modified during pregnancy. Migraine is mainly improved in this context, especially migraine without aura. Particular cautions about treatment must be applied, and non-pharmacological measures must be preferred. Tension-type headache and cluster headache seem to be less hormone-dependent. ...

Syringomyelia and hydromyelia: Current understanding and neurosurgical management.
Authors: Leclerc A, Matveeff L, Emery E Abstract Syringomyelia is a rare disorder in which a fluid-filled cyst forms within the spinal cord, resulting in myelopathy. Meanwhile, the abnormal dilatation of the central canal is referred to as hydromyelia or slit-like syrinx. The most prevailing classification is based on anatomical features and pathogeny rather than pathophysiological mechanisms. It is usual to distinguish foraminal syringomyelia related mainly to abnormalities at the craniocervical junction, non-foraminal syringomyelia dealing with any cause of arachnoiditis (infection, inflammation, trauma…) ...

Do modern therapies change natural history of Neuromyelitis optica?
Authors: Cabre P Abstract Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is an uncommon antibody-mediated disease of the central nervous system. Approximately 75% of patients have antibodies against aquaporin-4, a water channel expressed on astrocytes. Untreated, approximately 50% of NMOSD patients will be wheelchair users and blind, and a third will have died within 5 years of their first attack. Unlike multiple sclerosis, a progressive clinical course is very unusual and the accrual of disability is related to relapses. Aggressive treatment of attacks and highly efficient maintenance therapies to prevent attacks ...

Imaging of the spine and spinal cord: An overview of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques.

Clinical challenges that neuroradiologists may face are also discussed, such as the "when" and "where" concerning the use of each technique, and in which pathology or clinical scenario each technique is useful. Finally, some "tips and tricks" to overcome the challenges are provided with clinical examples. PMID: 32800350 [PubMed - as suppli...

Acute and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders: A biased nervous system.
Authors: Allene C, Kalalou K, Durand F, Thomas F, Januel D Abstract Acute stress disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder are generally triggered by an exceptionally intense threat. The consequences of this traumatogenic situation are explored here in chronological order, from exposure to the threat to development of symptoms. Such a situation may disrupt the equilibrium between two fundamental brain circuits, referred to as the "defensive" and "cognitive". The defensive circuit triggers the stress response as well as the formation of implicit memory. The cognitive circuit triggers the volunt...

Clinical and genetic update of hereditary spastic paraparesis.
Authors: Lallemant-Dudek P, Durr A Abstract Hereditary spastic paraparesis is a group of inherited neurological diseases characterized by underlying wide genetic heterogeneity. It should be suspected if there is a positive familial history, a common genetic alteration (i.e. SPG4, the most overall frequent form), or association with other signs, such as cerebellar ataxia (i.e. SPG7), early cognitive impairment or even cognitive deficit (i.e. SPG11), or peripheral neuropathy (i.e. SACS). The natural history is known for certain genetic subgroups, with genotype-phenotype correlations partially explaining childhood or ...

Intracerebral haemorrhage, microbleeds and antithrombotic drugs.
Authors: Casolla B, Cordonnier C Abstract Antithrombotic therapy is a cornerstone for secondary prevention of ischaemic events, cerebral and extra-cerebral. A number of clinical questions remain unanswered concerning the impact of antithrombotic drugs on the risk of first-ever and recurrent macro or micro cerebral haemorrhages, raising the clinical dilemma on the risk/benefit balance of giving antiplatelets and anticoagulants in patients with potential high risk of brain bleeds. High field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) blood-weighted sequences, including susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI), have expanded the s...

Monoclonal antibodies blocking CGRP transmission: An update on their added value in migraine prevention.
Authors: Schoenen J, Manise M, Nonis R, Gérard P, Timmermans G Abstract The avenue of effective migraine therapies blocking calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) transmission is the successful outcome of 35 years of translational research. Developed after short-acting, small antagonists of the CGRP receptor (the "gepants"), the monoclonal antibodies blocking CGRP or its receptor (CGRP/rec mAbs) have changed the paradigm in migraine treatment. Contrary to the classical acute medications like triptans or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with a transient effect, they act for long duratio...

The first case of traumatic internal carotid arterial dissection? Verneuil's case report from 1872.
Authors: Grond-Ginsbach C, Meisenbacher K, Böckler D, Leys D Abstract Dissecting aneurysms of the internal carotid artery were considered as very rare disorders before the seventies. Undiagnosed carotid-artery dissections, however, may have gone hidden behind earlier reports of delayed "apoplexy" due to "traumatic carotid thrombosis". Here, we present a case report of delayed stroke after trauma, published by Aristide Verneuil in 1872 in the Bulletin de l'Académie de Médecine and cited under the heading of vascular rupture and dissecting aneurysm by Heinrich Quincke in 1876.

Pregnancy with multiple sclerosis.
Authors: Vukusic S, Michel L, Leguy S, Lebrun-Frenay C Abstract Multiple sclerosis (MS) is usually diagnosed between twenty and forty years of age, when people often plan to have children. A lot has been said about the effect of pregnancy on the course of MS. The individual factors responsible for the disease modifying effect of pregnancy are not well determined. Having MS neither affects the fertility or the course of pregnancy itself. During pregnancy, many women find that their symptoms stay the same or even improve. Epidural and spinal analgesia appear to be safe and in general are not contraindicated for patie...

Pourfour du Petit (1664-1741).
Authors: Pearce JMS Abstract François Pourfour du Petit was a Parisian experimental neuro-anatomist, and ophthalmologist, who investigated his extensive wartime experiences of brain and spinal injuries and verified his conclusions by animal experiments. His results showed with great originality that brain injuries caused weakness or paralysis of the opposite limbs. He also clarified the anatomy of the spinal cord and decussation of the pyramidal tracts, and demonstrated the anatomy and clinical significance of the cervical sympathetic chain.
