OBJECTIVES: A restricted neurological deficit is not uncommon in patients with cortical lesions. However, in cheiro-oral syndrome (COS) associated with cortical involvement, the topographic disparity of the cheiral and oral representation area is hardly explained by the restricted sensorium at the homolateral mouth angle/lip and finger/hand, with sparing of the ...

Disorders of water imbalance manifest as hyponatremia and hypernatremia. To diagnose these disorders, emergency physicians must maintain a high index of suspicion, especially in the high-risk patient, because clinical presentations may be nonspecific. With severe water imbalance, inappropriate fluid resuscitation in the emergency department may have devastating neurological consequences. The ...

Patients suffering from Wilson's disease are divided into several types according clinical symptoms only at time of manifestation. Thereby two main subgroups exist: neurologic and non-neurologic types. After long-term therapy the neurological symptoms occurring in hepatolenticular degeneration may be improved but frequently with remaining fine-motoric disturbances which should be used ...
