  • Poliomyelitis

    Flaccid paralysis was detected 4 weeks after OPV immunization.[] The clinical symptoms include flaccid paralysis and a loss of reflexes, with resulting atrophy in the affected muscles.[] A 4 month-old male patient with the decreased movement of left lower extremity for 1 month was transferred to the Department of Pediatrics.[]

  • Meningomyelocele

  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    BACKGROUND: Traumatic spinal cord infarction was initially described in the era previous to the availability of MRI. This entity occurs in children and affects the thoracic spinal cord, usually presenting as a delayed cord injury. Patients have a high incidence of associated blunt thoracic or retroperitoneal trauma and[…][]

Abstract Spinal cord concussion (SCC) is an uncommon injury resulting in transient quadriplegia. The pathophysiology of SCC[…][]

  • Reye Syndrome

    Abstract Reye syndrome resembles disorders of fatty acid metabolism. Analysis of serum free fatty acids from 18 patients with Reye syndrome revealed that dicarboxylic acids comprise as much as 55% (range 4% to 55%) of the patients' total free fatty acids; both medium- (6 to 12 carbon lengths) and long-chain (14[…][]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Abstract In this study, we tried to describe the characteristics of pain and explore the association between the incidence of pain and abnormal laboratory test results in patients during the acute phase of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).This retrospective cohort study enrolled 252 patients with GBS who were in the[…][]
