  • Hepatitis A Virus

    The presentation was characterized by acute onset dysphagia, loss of head control, and bilateral arm weakness.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Mutations in the TAR-DNA Binding Protein-43 (TDP-43) encoding the TARDBP gene are present in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). TDP-43 is the major component of ubiquitin-positive inclusions in motor neurons in ALS patients. We report here a novel heterozygous missense mutation in TARDBP in an ALS patient[…][]

  • Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome

    Nonneoplastic Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS) is rare. A 27-year-old man as initially having the diagnosis of Addison's disease was admitted to the hospital because of fatigue, dry-mouthness and proximal limb weakness for 1 year. A diagnosis of LEMS was made from electrophysiological studies. Clinical and[…][]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Late-onset glycogen storage disease type 2 (GSD2)/Pompe disease is a progressive multi-system disease evoked by a deficiency of lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) activity. GSD2 is characterized by respiratory and skeletal muscle weakness and atrophy, resulting in functional disability and reduced life span.[…][]

  • Tick-Borne Encephalitis

    We present a case of endemic tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) occurring in June 2016 in the eastern part of the Netherlands in an area where a strain of TBE virus, genetically different from the common TBE virus strains in Europe, was reported in ticks in 2016. With the start of the tick season in spring, this[…][]

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    In recent years, the technique of combined ultrasound and electrical stimulation-guided nerve block has been recommended. We present 2 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy who exhibited different muscle responses to nerve stimulation during the performance of peripheral nerve blocks for surgeries. Whereas a[…][]

  • Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

    History The subtype of transthyretin (TTR) protein mutation, its tissue distribution, and the amount of amyloid deposition largely determine the clinical manifestations of TTR-related amyloidosis (ATTR). The key characteristic of ATTR that should raise clinical suspicion for this disorder remains the reliable[…][]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    The diagnostic and therapeutic considerations produced by the coexistence of cervical spondylosis and multiple sclerosis are complex. We have encountered six patients, affected by both multiple sclerosis and cervical spondylosis, in whom neurosurgical procedures were performed. The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis was[…][]

  • Erb Muscular Dystrophy

    Also found in: Dictionary , Thesaurus . Etymology: Wilhelm H. Erb a form of muscular dystrophy that first affects the shoulder girdle and later often involves the pelvic girdle. It is a progressively crippling disease with onset in childhood or adolescence and is usually inherited as an autosomal-recessive trait. It[…][]
