  • Misdiagnosis of lamotrigine toxicity as posterior circulation transient ischemic attack or stroke. [Journal Article]
    Epilepsy Behav. 2020 Jul 08; 111:107284.Ramey P, Osborn M, … Abou-Khalil B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Emergency departments will frequently call a stroke alert for patients taking LTG and presenting with symptoms consistent with LTG toxicity, particularly in seniors at greater risk of stroke. This adds not only expense but also radiation and contrast exposure from computed tomography (CT) studies. We recommend that a rapid LTG assay be made available and always ordered in patients receiving LTG, avoiding the considerable expense of an unnecessary stroke evaluation.

    Neurol Sci. 2020 Jul 10 [Online ahead of print]Sotgiu S, Minutolo A, … Nobile-Orazio E
  • In its typical presentation, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) occurs more often in old males as a progressive/recurrent motor and sensory nerve dysfunction with tendon areflexia. However, CIDP has also atypical clinical presentations, including pure sensory neuropathies, among which chronic immune sensory polyradiculopathy (CISP) accounts for only 0.5% of all CIDP,…
  • Update on DNA-Double Strand Break Repair Defects in Combined Primary Immunodeficiency. [Review]
    Curr Allergy Asthma Rep. 2020 Jul 09; 20(10):57.Slatter MA, Gennery AR
  • The most serious DNA damage, DNA double strand breaks (DNA-dsb), leads to mutagenesis, carcinogenesis or apoptosis if left unrepaired. Non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) is the principle repair pathway employed by mammalian cells to repair DNA-dsb. Several proteins are involved in this pathway, defects in which can lead to human disease. This review updates on the most recent information available…

  • Subacute combined degeneration of the spinal cord is a neurological complication of vitamin B12 (cobalamin) deficiency. A deficiency of vitamin B12 can occur as a result of nutritional deficiency, reduced absorption due to altered gastrointestinal anatomy or function, or due to the intake of certain drugs. Subacute combined degeneration is characterized by degeneration of the dorsal columns and t…
  • StatPearls: Dysdiadochokinesia [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Rocha Cabrero Franklyn F University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital De Jesus Orlando O University of Puerto Rico, Medical Sciences Campus, Neurosurgery Section BOOK
  • Dysdiadochokinesia (diadochokinesia) is the inability to perform rapid alternating muscle movements. These can be quick, synchronous, and can include pronation/supination, fast finger tapping, opening and closing of the fists, and foot tapping. It is an essential component to evaluate in patients suspected of having a cerebellar disease. These activities correlate well with numerous lifelong meas…
  • StatPearls: Trinucleotide Repeat Disorders [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Ramakrishnan Sharanya S Grant Government Medical College and Sir JJ Group of Hospitals Gupta Vikas V South Carolina Department of Mental Health BOOK
  • Trinucleotide repeat disorders consist of a group of human diseases, which are a result of an abnormal expansion of repetitive sequences and primarily affect the nervous system. These occur during various stages of human development. Repetitive sequences, scattered in the microsatellite regions, usually account for about 30% of the human genome. In a normal person, the main purpose of various len…
  • StatPearls: Hartnup Disease [BOOK]
