Illicit use of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, Ecstasy) may cause a mild or severe form of the serotonin syndrome. The syndrome intensity is not just influenced by drug doses but also by environmental factors. Warm environmental temperatures and physical activity are features of raves. The purpose of this study was to assess ...

Serotonin syndrome is a severe, often life threatening adverse drug reaction, resulting from excessive serotonin involving the peripheral and central nervous system. This frequently manifests with autonomic, neurocognitive and behavioral/somatic symptoms. This case study describes the neuropsychological consequences of a 42-year-old, Caucasian, right-handed female physician who was eventually diagnosed with ...

Sensory intolerance refers to high levels of distress evoked by everyday sounds (e.g., sounds of people chewing) or commonplace tactile sensations (e.g., sticky or greasy substances). Sensory intolerance may be associated with obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptoms, OC-related phenomena, and other forms of psychopathology. Sensory intolerance is not included as a syndrome ...

Tourette syndrome (TS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by multiple motor and phonic tics, which are associated with sensory symptoms (premonitory urges). Little is known about the nature of the subjective urges and repetitive behaviours which are intrinsic to TS. This study assessed the relationship between specific urges and repetitive ...

The incidence of Asperger's syndrome is reported as above average in young people presenting with gender dysphoria. Patients with Asperger's syndrome, however, are prone to obsessive preoccupations. This paper points out that the apparent dysphoria may in some cases prove to be a transient obsession. Cases from the author's clinical ...

Background: Evidence that tic behaviour in individuals with Tourette syndrome reflects difficulties inhibiting prepotent motor actions is mixed. Response conflict tasks produce sensitive measures of response interference from prepotent motor impulses and the proficiency of inhibiting these impulses as an act of cognitive control. We tested the hypothesis that individuals ...

Two patients with recurrent lymphoma developed an acute, transient encephalopathy following administration of recombinant human granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (rhG-CSF), filgrastim, in anticipation of leukapheresis for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Head magnetic resonance imaging showed evidence of blood-brain barrier (BBB) breakdown, compatible with posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). The proposed pathogenesis ...

Autologous PBSC transplantation is a preferred treatment for patients with polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, M protein, and skin changes (POEMS syndrome). However, data on stem cell mobilization in POEMS syndrome are limited. We retrospectively reviewed outcomes and factors prognostic of mobilization in newly diagnosed patients with POEMS syndrome. A total of ...

We present two cases of spontaneous intracerebellar migration of a pseudomeningocele. This is a rarely reported complication of posterior fossa surgery with possible life threatening cerebellar mass effect. The probable mechanism is a slow but progressive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) movement (one-way valve mechanism) into the pseudomeningocele with secondary herniation or ...

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage is a routinely used adjunct in operation of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA), which may reduce the incidence of perioperative paraplegia by improving spinal cord perfusion. Neurological complications of CSF drainage have been reported, possibly due to excessive CSF drainage, and acute subdural hematoma (SDH) in particular ...

We report a patient with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) who initially presented as Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) responsive to high-dose immunoglobulin treatment. Detailed investigations for the recurrence of neurological symptoms revealed DLBCL that was responsive to chemotherapy. DLBCL should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with MFS ...

Shwachman-Diamond syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive multisystem disease characterized by pancreatic exocrine insufficiency, skeletal abnormalities, impaired hematopoiesis, and a predisposition to hematologic malignancies. Considerable phenotypic variability between individuals, as well as within the same individual over time, can make the diagnosis challenging. It is important to make the diagnosis ...

Cardiorenal syndromes were defined and classified recently, but the mechanism of chronic renocardiac syndrome remains disputed. Theories about chronic renocardiac syndrome cannot offer a convincing explanation for it. As a result, the current therapies of chronic renocardiac syndrome do not contribute to a satisfied prognosis. Epoxyeicosatrienoic acids, the products of ...

NF-κB usually has antiapotptic effects and is involved in regulation of cell proliferation and intercellular communication. This is also true for the malignant cells in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), including the malignant stem cells. However, both AML and MDS patients are heterogeneous with regard to the ...
