De novo histoid leprosy - Further points of focus
In this report, we present a series of three cases of snakebites that evolved with hemorrhagic stroke due to delays in the access to antivenom in the Brazilian Amazon, being fundamental for diagnosis to validate the clinical suspicion and make decisions that would improve the treatment and prognosis of the patients.

What Causes Facial Nerve Palsy?
Discussion Facial nerve palsy has been known for centuries, but in 1821 unilateral facial nerve paralysis was described by Sir Charles Bell. Bell’s palsy (BP) is a unilateral, acute facial paralysis that is clinically diagnosed after other etiologies have been excluded by appropriate history, physical examination and/or laboratory testing or imaging. Symptoms include abnormal movement of facial nerve. It can be associated with changes in facial sensation, hearing, taste or excessive tearing. The right and left sides are equally affected but bilateral BP is rare (0.3%). Paralysis can be complete or incomplete at prese...

Interosseous membrane window size for tibialis posterior tendon transfer—Geometrical and MRI analysis
Tibialis posterior transfer was first reported by Ober in 1933 [1]. He described the circumtibial technique. This transfer allows the foot to recover (at least partially) its dorsiflexion motion in pathologies such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth, leprosy, mononeuropathy, common peroneal nerve injury, stroke, Duchenne muscular dystrophy [2–5,7], whenever the deformity is flexible.

Neurology in Africa
"Ex Africa semper aliquid novi [Out of Africa always something new]," wrote the Roman historian Pliny the elder. Neurology in Africa is no different, with the recent emergence of new diseases ranging from HIV to konzo. Historically, neurology in Africa has been included under the heading tropical neurology or neurology in the tropics and is well-reviewed by Poser and Poser.1 Some of the earliest descriptions of the more common neurologic disorders (ND), including stroke, migraine, paralysis, and seizures, come from ancient Egypt and Greece. These accounts include diseases like lathyrism, which occurs in temperate as well a...
