    Asymptomatic cysts of the pineal gland are found frequently by radiological examination of the brain or at postmortem examination. Symptomatic cysts are rare, and may require surgical intervention. Sudden death due to a cystic lesion of the pineal gland is very rare. A case of a 22 year old man who collapsed and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multifocal Motor Neuropathy

    In the first patient the symptoms were slowly progressive with bulbar muscle impairment, generalized weakness, muscular atrophy with cramps and fasciculations.[moh-it.pure.elsevier.com]

  • Arachnoiditis

    Involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) by tuberculosis is rare; it can affect either immunocompromised or immunocompetent people. Here, we report a case of tuberculosis with CNS involvement. We present the case of an immunocompetent young man who developed fever, subacute headache, disturbance of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    A 40-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of the acute onset of fever and headache, which were attributed to bacterial meningitis. Antibiotic treatment was initiated and his condition gradually improved. On day 5 after admission, immediately after masturbation, he developed abrupt onset of severe[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
