Sarcoglycanopathies are relatively rare progressive muscular dystrophies with autosomal recessive inheritance; which belong to the group of limb girdle muscular dystrophies. The phenotype resembles dystrophinopathies due to proximal muscle weakness and calf hypertrophy. Reports from the Indian subcontinent are scarce. The authors report a case of primary beta-sarcoglycanopathy and describe ...

Parenchymatous cerebellar cortical atrophy (CCA) usually presents with a "pure" cerebellar ataxia. We describe a patient with a sporadic, late-onset progressive cerebellar ataxia plus cognitive decline and chorea who had CCA at post mortem. We discuss this unique case in the current context of classification of idiopathic cerebellar ataxia.

The authors describe a case of syphilitic amyotrophy in a 37-year-old man presenting with subacute progressive painless weakness in the right arm. Syphilitic amyotrophy is still an existing differential diagnosis of painless and progressive weakness. The authors explore potential obstacles in the diagnostic workup and finding of adequate therapy.

Neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) are present in the subthalamic nucleus (STN) of progressive supranuclear palsy and corticobasal degeneration, two sporadic tauopathies with preferential accumulation of tau with four repeats in the microtubule binding domain (4R tau). Since recent evidence suggests that argyrophilic grain disease (AGD) is also a 4R tauopathy, we ...

The term juvenile ossifying fibroma is used in the literature in naming 2 microscopically distinct fibro-osseous lesions of the craniofacial skeleton. One is characterized by small uniform spherical ossicles resembling psammoma bodies (psammomatoid juvenile ossifying fibroma). The other is distinguished by trabeculae of fibrillary osteoid and woven bone (trabecular juvenile ...
