  • Alzheimer Disease

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Hydrocephalus

    Fetuses who develop progressive ventricular enlargement and cortical thinning from hydrocephalus before 28 weeks may have irreversible damage by 32 weeks.[chop.edu] A CT scan showed severe dilation of the brain’s lateral ventricles, while an MRI scan revealed massive enlargement of the lateral third and fourth venricles, a very thin cortical[sciencedaily.com] Prenatal factors such as progression, degree of cortical mantle thinning to less than 1.5 cm and in utero duration of greater than four weeks are associated with a poor prognosis[chop.edu]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Endocrine. 2016 Jul;53(1):47-57. doi: 10.1007/s12020-016-0902-0. Epub 2016 Mar 7. Abstract Spontaneous hypoglycemia is a puzzling clinical problem and an important reason for referral to endocrinologists. Several clinical conditions such as insulinomas, non-insulinoma pancreatogenous hypoglycemia syndrome, insulin[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease with unknown cause characterized by non-caseating granuloma formations. It may present with bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy, skin lesions, eye and musculoskeletal system involvement. Hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria are important electrolyte imbalances resulting from sarcoidosis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Cushing's syndrome results from sustained pathologic hypercortisolism caused by excessive corticotropin (ACTH) secretion by tumors in the pituitary gland (Cushing's disease, 70%) or elsewhere (15%), or by ACTH-independent cortisol secretion from adrenal tumors (15%). The clinical features are variable, and no single[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    INTRODUCTION: Patients with overlapping Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), and the Bickerstaff brainstem encephalitis (BBE) have rarely been reported, and the diverse clinical features and sequelae are challenging for physicians. Through this case report, we present the clinical course,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
