Prevalence of spasticity and spasticity-related pain among patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
Authors: Verschueren A, Grapperon AM, Delmont E, Attarian S Abstract Although they are common symptoms of ALS, there is little information on the prevalence of spasticity and spasticity-related pain. Consecutive patients were prospectively recruited from an ALS referral center. Clinical assessment, functional scores, features of spasticity-related pains has been recorded. In a cohort of 150 patients, 36% presented with spasticity. Spastic patients were younger, with a longer duration of disease. Spasticity accelerates the functional decline of patients. Spasticity-related pain was reported in 42.5% of spastic patie...

Seizure incidence among neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder patients.
CONCLUSION: Reviewing the literature revealed that although seizures are rare in NMOSD, AQP4 disruption possibly increases the risk of seizure attacks. We therefore concluded that the role of AQP4 in seizures is controversial and needs more investigation. PMID: 33431266 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Revue Neurologique)

Othello syndrome in Parkinson's disease: A diagnostic emergency of an underestimated condition.
Authors: El Otmani H, Sabiry S, Bellakhdar S, El Moutawakil B, Abdoh Rafai M Abstract Othello syndrome (OS) is a type of delusional jealousy, characterized by the false absolute certainty of the infidelity of a partner. This syndrome is not uncommon in Parkinson's Disease (PD), appearing as side effect of Dopaminergic Agonists (DA) therapy. We analyze the observations of five patients with OS, diagnosed in a series of 250 consecutive PD patients during two years. All patients are men, with a particularly young age at onset of PD. The mean duration of DA therapy at OS onset was 3 years. One patient had hypersexualit...

Prognostic value of spinal cord MRI in multiple sclerosis patients.
Authors: Leguy S, Combès B, Bannier E, Kerbrat A Abstract Multiple sclerosis [MS] is a common inflammatory, demyelinating and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system that affects both the brain and the spinal cord. In clinical practice, spinal cord MRI is performed far less frequently than brain MRI, mainly owing to technical limitations and time constraints. However, improvements of acquisition techniques, combined with a strong diagnosis and prognostic value, suggest an increasing use of spinal cord MRI in the near future. This review summarizes the current data from the literature on the p...

FUS mutation is probably the most common pathogenic gene for JALS, especially sporadic JALS.
Authors: Chen L Abstract Juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (JALS) is a rare and severe form of ALS. The development of gene sequencing methods has resulted in increased reports of JALS cases in recent years, and additional gene mutations in FUS have been identified. Fused in sarcoma (FUS) mutations, appeared rarely in classical ALS but indeed were the most frequent pathogenic mutations in JALS, especially in sporadic JALS. After studied the reports in the last 10 years about JALS cases, the case characteristics caused by FUS mutations and the commonality of the mutation sites were summarized in this review. FU...

FOXP3rs3761548 gene variant and interleukin-35 serum levels as biomarkers in patients with multiple sclerosis.
Authors: Kamal A, Hosny M, Abd Elwahab A, Shawki Kamal Y, Shehata HS, Hassan A Abstract BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS). Aberrant expression of transcription factor forkhead box P3 (FoxP3) has been suggested to underlie different immunological disorders as FOXP3 expression is essential for T regulatory cells (Tregs) to maintain their suppressive and anti-inflammatory functions and exert immunologic self-tolerance. Interleukin-35 (IL-35) is an important immunosuppressive cytokine that is produced mainly by CD4+ FOXP3+ Tregs. OBJECTIVES: To a...

Specificities of acute phase stroke management in the elderly.
Authors: Smadja D, Salmon PK Abstract Health professionals are currently facing the challenge of managing an increasing number of old patients presenting with acute stroke, due to rapid aging of the population. Compared to their younger counterparts, elderly patients differ in many ways in the setting of acute stroke. Apart from a striking high stroke incidence, which increases exponentially as age increases, cardioembolism also becomes, as patients age, the main cause of ischemic stroke. Delirium, which can challenge the diagnosis, is frequent at the acute phase of stroke, and may be related to an underlying demen...

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, ...

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…) ...
