  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy with tongue fasciculation: A case report. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Neurosci 2019Roberto KT, Antonio AKD, … Damian LF
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy is one of the immune-mediated polyneuropathies responsive to immunotherapy. Its usual clinical presentation is a chronic course of symmetric sensorimotor affectation of both proximal and distal extremities with signs of demyelination on electrophysiologic studies. Cranial nerve signs in this condition is not commonly encountered, particularly invo…
  • Peripheral nerve hyperexcitability. [Journal Article]
    Handb Clin Neurol 2019; 161:281-290Katirji B
  • Neuromyotonic and myokymic discharges are abnormal electrical muscular discharges caused by ectopic discharges from motor axons and represent the hallmarks of peripheral nerve hyperexcitability. Neuromyotonic discharges are specific for peripheral nerve hyperexcitability syndromes, whereas myokymic discharges may occur either focally or in a more generalized fashion in many other peripheral nerve…
  • Normal and abnormal spontaneous activity. [Journal Article]
    Handb Clin Neurol 2019; 160:257-279Rubin DI
  • Assessment of spontaneous waveforms recorded in a resting muscle during needle electromyography is important to determine the type of underlying neuromuscular disorder, temporal course of a disease, and severity and prognosis. A variety of different spontaneous waveforms may be recorded. Some waveforms may be recording in patients without neuromuscular disorders, such as end-plate activity or fas…
  • The Association Between Benign Fasciculations and Health Anxiety: A Report of Two Cases and a Systematic Review of the Literature. [Journal Article]
    Psychosomatics 2019 Sep - Oct; 60(5):499-507Blackman G, Cherfi Y, … David AS
  • CONCLUSIONS: A proportion of individuals with BFS experience anxiety around having motor neuron disease-to the point of developing health anxiety disorder. A bidirectional relationship may exist between BFS and health anxiety disorder. Clinicians should be alert to the possibility of health anxiety disorder in patients with BFS and have a low threshold to refer for psychiatric assessment. There is support for the role of psychological therapy, especially CBT, as well as pharmacotherapy, in the form of antidepressant medication. In severe or treatment-refractive cases, combined treatment may be indicated.
