  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Psychosis None of the studies reported the absolute incidence of psychosis.[dx.doi.org] We describe the case of a woman who came to our attention for acute onset and very rapidly worsening left hemiplegia, vision loss and cognitive impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Three weeks later, she was readmitted with left eye vision loss and left hemiplegia (CD4 cell count 342 cells/µl). Repeat imaging showed multiple new enhancing lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Arteriosclerosis
