  • A case report: Numb Chin Syndrome due to thalamic infarction: a rare case. [Journal Article]
    BMC Neurol 2019; 19(1):303Rimmele F, Maschke H, … Jürgens TP
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this case report we introduce a patient who clinically shows an NCS. Various diseases may be responsible for NCS, including malignancies or even central neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis. A lacunar thalamic ischemia as a cause of NCS is very rare and to our knowledge described in the literature only in the contex of a COS in three cases. We wish to remind the reader, through this case, of the purely descriptive and syndromal character of the NCS and the importance for detecting underlying diseases. Furthermore we give a brief overview of the NCS and causative disorders.
  • Metastatic Prostate Adenocarcinoma of the Mandible Diagnosed With Oral Manifestations. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg 2019Ayranci F, Omezli MM, … Ay M
  • Metastasis from the prostate gland to the mandible is rarely encountered and commonly present with non-specific features like unexplained pain, swelling, and numb chin syndrome. Here we present a case with metastatic prostate adenocarcinoma detected secondary to oral manifestations. Patients present with unexplained facial pain and numbness should alert clinicians to the presence of malignant dis…
  • [Cavernous sinus syndrome as the initial symptom of Burkitt's lymphoma: a case report and literature review]. [Case Reports]
    Rev Neurol 2019; 69(6):249-254Ruiz-Ortiz M, Azcarate-Diaz FJ, … Calleja-Castano P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Burkitt's lymphoma is a high-grade lymphoproliferative syndrome. Its form associated with immunodeficiency is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in this subgroup of patients. In the cases analysed in the literature, the age of presentation varied and the form of onset was a progressive painful ophthalmoplegia or numb chin syndrome. Exclusive involvement of the cavernous sinus was infrequent, but in that case it entailed a poor prognosis. It is important to rule out a primary extracranial origin and not to confuse it with an idiopathic Tolosa-Hunt syndrome that would delay the beginning of antitumour treatment.
  • Multiple myeloma with multiple neurological presentations. [Journal Article]
    Pract Neurol 2019; 19(6):511-517Smith N, Kimberger K, … Alty J
  • Multiple myeloma is a haematological malignancy with clonal plasma cell proliferation and production of monoclonal immunoglobulins. Its neurological complications are relatively common, caused by both the disease and the treatment. Neurologists should therefore be familiar with its neurological manifestations and complications. We describe a 40-year-old woman who presented with lower cranial neur…
  • Two cases of numb chin syndrome diagnosed as malignant disease. [Case Reports]
    Oxf Med Case Reports 2018; 2018(12):omy097Maeda K, Taniguchi JI, Matsui K
  • Numb chin syndrome (NCS) is defined as reduced or absent sensation in an area of the chin and lower lip within the distribution of the mental or inferior alveolar nerves. The causes of NCS may be neoplastic, traumatic, dental, toxic, drug-induced, inflammatory, autoimmune or infectious. NCS may be the preliminary symptom of malignancy or recurrence/metastasis in patients with cancer. Therefore, t…
  • Numb Chin Syndrome as the Initial Manifestation of Breast Carcinoma. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Surg Oncol 2018; 9(3):391-393Nambiar K R, Anoop TM, … Daniel S
  • Numb chin syndrome may be the manifestation of a local dental pathology or secondary to a systemic disease. A systematic physical examination with diagnostic workup is of utmost importance in patients presenting with numb chin syndrome. We report the case of a 58-year-old woman who presented with numb chin syndrome. An orthopantogram and computed tomography of the head revealed osteolytic lesion …
  • Numb chin syndrome: an ominous sign of mandibular metastasis. [Case Reports]
