  • Topographic changes measured by the swept source optical coherence
           tomography in retinal nerve fiber layer, optic nerve head and macula in
           children with migraine
    • Abstract: As a vascular-inflammatory disease, migraine affects the brain and some other organs, such as the eye. The aim of this study was to measure and compare the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular ganglion cell layer thickness and optic nerve head parameters to detect structural damage in children with migraine using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Twenty-four children with migraine in the painless period and 26 controls were included in the study. The vast majority of the groups consisted of females (75% for patients and 77% for controls). Certain RNFL quadrants and optic disc parameters revealed significant differences between the patients and controls. In the right and left eyes of children with migraine, nasal quadrant RNFL was significantly thicker than that in healthy subjects (88.82 ± 11.03 vs 77.80 ± 13.77, P = 0.004 for right eyes and 87.71 ± 11.79 vs 77.80 ± 13.77, P = 0.01 for left eyes). Temporal quadrant RNFL in the left eyes was thinner (78.67 ± 9.57 vs 84.44 ± 9.68, P = 0.04). Disc area in the left eyes of the patients was greater (2.29 ± 0.46 vs 1.94 ± 0.28, P = 0.003). There were significant expansions in cup volumes in favor of the patients for right and left eyes (0.15 ± .0.19 vs 0.05 ± 0.05, P = 0.03 and 0.17 ± 0.14 vs 0.05 ± 0.05, P = 0.001, respectively). The only significant difference between the left and right eyes of the migraineurs was the RNFL thickness in the superior quadrant. Ganglion cell layer thickness did not differ between the right eyes, left eyes and controls. In conclusion, children with migraine showed significant variations in specific RNFL and optic disc parameters compared to control subjects.

  • Management of acute mitochondriopathy and encephalopathy syndrome in
           pediatric intensive care unite: a new clinical entity
    • Abstract: Acute mitochondriopathy and encephalopathy syndrome (AMES) is described differently by different authors in the literature. As a new clinical entity, we aimed to present the clinical signs and symptoms, diagnosis and treatment algorithm of our patients with AMES. 56 patients aged between 2 months and 18 years who were followed up in pediatric intensive care units of Konya Training and Research Hospital and Selcuk University Medical Faculty Hospital, between January 2010 and June 2017 were included. Patients’ data were obtained retrospectively from the intensive care unit patient files. 34 (60.7%) of the patients were male and 22 (39.3%) were female. The median age of our patients was 10.0 months. At the time of admission, 42 (75%) of the patients had fever, 35 (62.5%) vomiting, 27 (48.2%) abnormal behaviour and agitation and 28 (50%) convulsion. The etiological classification of patients with AMES was divided into four groups as infection, metabolic disorder, toxic, and hypoxic-ischemic. 39 (69.6%) patients were found to have infection, 10 (17.9%) patients hypoxia, 7 (12.5%) patients metabolic disorders. AMES occurs rarely, but should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of patients with any encephalopathy of unknown origin especially in those with a history of ingestion of drugs, previous viral infection and vomiting. Early recognition and treatment is imperative to reduce morbidity and mortality in children with AMES.

  • The current and emerging therapeutic approaches in drug-resistant epilepsy
           management
    • Abstract: Epilepsy is a neurologic disorder consisting of recurrent spontaneous seizures. Antiepileptic drugs administration is the most commonly used therapeutic strategy in the management of epilepsy. However, 20–30% of epilepsy patients have seizure episodes that are not controlled by these medicines (drug-resistant epilepsy). The management of drug-resistant epilepsy, especially in the children, is challenging and can cause economic and social problems, and lower the patients’ quality of life, cognition, and mood. Several therapeutic approaches for drug-resistant epilepsy are available including surgical methods, neurostimulation treatments, and diet therapies which lead to diminishing the epileptic seizures. An increasing number of novel and potential therapeutic approaches such as gene therapy, gene editing, cell therapy, exosome therapy, and molecular network targeting have also been explored. The present study is aimed to review these current and emerging therapeutic approaches for drug-resistant epilepsy.

  • The clinical and radiological features of cisternal and pericallosal
           lipomas
    • Abstract: Purpose To demonstrate the clinical and radiological features of pericallosal and cisternal lipomas and to compare these two groups in terms of radiological and clinical features. Methods This retrospective study included 23 patients diagnosed with pericallosal and cisternal lipoma between 2010 and 2017. The patients comprised 12 females and 11 males with a mean age of 38.8 years (range 12–69 years). Magnetic resonance imaging was applied to all the patients. Computed tomography (CT) was also performed in 10 patients. Results 9 lesions were pericallosal and 14 were cisternal (7 were right quadrigeminal cistern, 3 were left quadrigeminal cistern, 1 was interpeduncular cistern, 1 was left cerebellopontine cistern, 1 was right cerebellopontine cistern, and 1 was supracerebellar cistern). The mean size of the lesions was 18.7 ± 10 mm. The shape of the lesions was curvilinear in 10 patients (43.5%) and tubulonodular in 13 patients (56.5%). The mean CT density of the lesions was − 87.7 ± 25.6 HU. The size of pericallosal lipomas (mean 27.5 mm) was statistically significantly larger than that of cisternal lipomas (mean 13.1 mm) (p = 0.001). No statistically significant difference was determined between the two groups in terms of lesion shape (p = 0.478), gender (p = 0.707), age (p = 0.639), and symptoms (p = 0.084). Conclusions In this study, the incidence of pericallosal lipomas was 0.011% and the incidence of cisternal lipomas was 0.017%. Although rare, the knowledge of the clinical and radiological features of pericallosal and cisternal lipomas will play an important role in the accurate diagnosis and follow-up of the patient.

  • Clinical use of 99m Tc-HMPAO-labeled platelets in cerebral sinus
           thrombosis imaging
    • Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) are not always conclusive for the detection of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). 99mTc-HMPAO-labeled platelets may be useful in cases with high clinical suspicion. Three patients with headaches with or without intraparenchymal hemorrhage that were highly suspected to have CVST, despite inconclusive anatomical imaging, were selected for inclusion in the study. Platelets were extracted by two rounds of centrifugation from 49 ml of the patient’s whole blood. The platelets were labeled with 99mTc-HMPAO and any unbound 99mTc was removed by centrifugation. The re-suspension of 99mTc-HMPAO-labeled platelets in cell-free plasma was reinjected into the patients. After 2 h, planar and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images of the head were obtained. Extensive clots were detected in all three patients, illustrated in the planar image and even clearer in the SPECT images. We propose that 99mTc-HMPAO-labeled platelet scan is a favorable imaging method for patients suspected to have CVST with inconclusive CT and MRI results.

  • CSF biomarkers and amyloid PET: concordance and diagnostic accuracy in a
           MCI cohort
    • Abstract: Brain amyloid deposition is one of the main hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and two approaches are available for assessing amyloid pathology in vivo: cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers levels and amyloid load visualized by amyloid beta positron emission tomography imaging (Amy-PET) probes. We aimed to investigate the concordance between CSF biomarkers and Amy-PET in a memory clinic cohort. Moreover, using a proper clinical follow-up, we wanted to assess the diagnostic accuracy of CSF and PET biomarkers in predicting the progression of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to AD dementia. We included 31 MCI patients who underwent [18F]florbetaben PET and CSF sampling (Aβ1–42, t-Tau, p-Tau). A semiquantitative visual scan assessment was used to quantify amyloid deposition in 5 brain regions, rating from 1 (negative), to 2 and 3 (positive). CSF biomarkers were considered abnormal if: Aβ1–42 < 600 pg/ml, p-Tau/Aβ1–42 > 0.08 and t-Tau/Aβ1–42 > 0.52. We also applied less lenient cutoffs of 550 pg/ml and 450 pg/ml for Aβ1–42. The concordance rate was 77% between Amy-PET and CSF Aβ1–42 levels, and 89% between Amy-PET and p-Tau/Aβ1–42 and t-Tau/Aβ1–42. According to the clinical follow-up, Amy-PET (sensitivity [SE] 93.7%, specificity [SP] 80%) exhibited the best diagnostic accuracy in discriminating AD from non-AD, followed by p-Tau/Aβ1–42 ratio and t-Tau/Aβ1–42 ratio (SE 93.7%, SP 66.6%), and Aβ1–42 levels (SE 81%, SP 60%). The regional uptake of [18F]florbetaben PET in the precuneus and the striatum showed the best SP (86.6%). In discordant cases, the clinical diagnosis was most often in agreement with PET results. In general, concordance between CSF biomarkers and Amy-PET was good, especially when the ratios between CSF amyloid and Tau biomarkers were used. However, Amy-PET proved to be superior to CSF Aβ1–42 in terms of diagnostic accuracy for AD, with the possibility to further increase its specificity by focusing the analysis in specific areas such as the precuneus/posterior cingulate cortex and the striatum.

  • Nocturnal blood pressure changes in Parkinson’s disease: correlation
           with autonomic dysfunction and vitamin D levels
    • Abstract: Nocturnal blood pressure (BP) changes are an indicator of autonomic dysfunction. We aim to investigate the correlation between nocturnal blood pressure (BP) variability, vitamin D levels and Parkinson’s disease severity (PD) in this study. Thirty-five patients with PD participated in the study. Disease severity was evaluated by United Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) and Hoehn and Yahr Scale (HYS). Equivalent levodopa dose was calculated and 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were measured. The Non-Motor Symptom Questionnaire (NMSQ) was applied to all patients. Ambulatory BP monitoring for 24 h was established. Patients were divided into three groups according to nocturnal BP results: dippers (normal finding—a decline in mean nighttime BP of more than 10%); non-dippers (pathological—a decline in mean nighttime BP of less than 10%); reverse dippers (pathological—an increase in mean nighttime BP) .The mean score of the NMSQ was higher in the group with HYS > 2 (p = 0.050). Four patients were dipper, 17 patients were non-dipper and 16 patients were reverse dipper. There was no significant difference between the three groups in terms of age, gender, disease duration, age of the disease onset, disease stage, disease duration, dopamine agonist usage, levodopa equivalent dose, vitamin D level and NMSQ scores. NMSQ scores are high in advanced PD. Ambulatory BP monitoring is useful in detecting autonomic dysfunction. The number of patients with non-dipping and reverse dipping is high in PD, independent from PD severity, drug dose, vitamin D and the other NMS symptoms.

  • Skull base osteomyelitis: factors implicating clinical outcome
    • Abstract: Skull base osteomyelitis is a serious disease with a high risk of complications including neuroinfection. Typically, the inflammation of the skull base results from infection from neighboring tissues. In case of malignant otitis externa, inflammation disseminates from the external auditory canal. In this study, we present our experience with seven patients diagnosed with skull base osteomyelitis that began with otitis externa and have been treated in our department for the last 10 years. Department Patient Database was searched for the diagnosis skull base osteomyelitis. The search covered the last 10 years. The search revealed seven patients who met the above-described criteria. Medical records of those patients were carefully analyzed including age, gender, symptoms and signs, diagnostics details, treatment, performed procedures, number of hospitalization days, comorbid diseases, and complications including any cranial nerve palsy. Detailed analysis of medical records of patients included in this study showed that skull base osteomyelitis presents a challenge for diagnosis and treatment. Treatment strategy requires prolonged aggressive intravenous antibiotic therapy, and in some cases combined with surgical intervention. Cranial nerve paresis indicates progression of the disease and is associated with longer hospital stay. Similar relationship is observed in patients with skull base osteomyelitis that required surgery. Diabetes in patient’s medical history may complicate the healing process. Diabetes, neural involvement, and surgery may overlap each other resulting in longer hospital stay. Cranial nerve paresis may not resolve completely and some neural deficits become persistent.

  • The efficacy and safety of nerve combing for trigeminal neuralgia without
           neurovascular compression
    • Abstract: Objective The purpose of our study was to review and evaluate the efficacy and safety of nerve combing without neurovascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia. Methods A retrospective review of 298 patients with trigeminal neuralgia between August 2007 and August 2016 was conducted. The patients were divided into two groups: the A group was treated by nerve combing (34 patients) and the B group received microvascular decompression (264 patients). Surgical outcomes and postoperative complications were compared between the two groups. Results Pain was completely relieved in 88.2% of group A patients and 92.8% of group B after surgery. The median duration of follow-up was 60 months (range 10–115 months) in group A and 62 months (range 12–118 months) in group B. 72.7% and 86.4% of cases were completely relieved in groups A and B, respectively. There were no statistically significant differences in the surgical outcomes between the two groups. Almost all patients experienced some degree of numbness or hypesthesia (76.5%). The rate of facial numbness in group A was significantly higher than that in group B. Conclusion This study demonstrated that nerve combing without neurovascular decompression is a safe and effective treatment for trigeminal neuralgia. However, a majority of patients treated with nerve combing experienced some degree of facial numbness.

  • Predictive value of laboratory parameters in childhood migraine
    • Abstract: Migraine is a neurovascular disease characterized by inflammation of the cerebral and extra cerebral vessels and appears in the form of attacks. Although the pathophysiology of migraine is not fully known, the data obtained because of long-term studies reliably support the presence of a potential relationship between migraine pathogenesis and platelet biology. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of migraine on MPV and other blood parameters as well as the relationship between the hematologic parameters and characteristics of the headache and whether they possess diagnostic value as inflammation and platelet biology play a fundamental role in the disorder. The study group consisted of 56 patients who were followed up and treated with a diagnosis of migraine and 45 healthy patients. The median creatinine, CRP and TSH values of the children in the migraine group were found to be statistically significantly higher than the healthy control group. Serum iron levels of the migraine group were found to be statistically significantly lower than the control group. No statistically significant difference was found between the two groups in terms of MPV. However, when we examined only the patient group, we found MPV to be statistically significantly higher in girls. Increased MPV and decreased serum iron levels may be related to migraine. More comprehensive studies including a larger population are required to evaluate the specific parameters that may guide the follow-up and treatment of the disorder with simple tests to be used in routine practice and to elucidate the underlying pathophysiology.

  • Lacosamide in patients with intellectual disability and refractory
           epilepsy
    • Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the tolerability and efficacy of lacosamide (LCM) in residential patients at our epilepsy centre. We assessed retrospectively 80 patients (mean age 36.2 years, range 18–63 years; 29 female) with intellectual disability (ID) and drug-resistant epilepsy using an industry-independent, non-interventional study design based on standardised seizure records. Evaluation, including calculation of retention rate, was carried out for the intervals 3–6, 9–12 and 21–24 months after LCM initiation. The Clinical Global Impression scale (CGI) was used to allow assessment of qualitative changes in seizure severity and clinical status. CGI improved for 61% of the patients. The responder rate was 48%; ten patients (13%) became seizure free. The response was not related to the degree of ID. The retention rates after 12 and 24 months were 71% and 65%, and were significantly lower in patients taking other sodium-channel blockers (SCBs; 76% vs. 55%). The occurrence of adverse events (AEs) was related to the administration of concomitant SCBs (48% with SCBs vs. 26% without). Sedation (15%), ataxia (13%), vertigo (11%), and nausea (9%) were the commonest AEs. While 60% of our patients had concomitant psychiatric diagnosis, we found no relevant effect of this on challenging behaviour. Adjunctive LCM may provide an antiepileptic treatment option for patients with ID with or without additional psychiatric diagnosis. The occurrence of AEs and the LCM retention rate were affected by concomitant SCB use but not by psychiatric comorbidity.

  • The relationship between motor performance and femoral cartilage thickness
           in children with Down syndrome
    • Abstract: Down syndrome (DS) is a genetic disorder associated with mental and motor developmental delays in childhood. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of the femoral cartilage thickness with motor performance in children with Down syndrome (DS). A total of 39 children with DS in the age range of 12–42 months were included in the study (female/male: 21/18; mean age: 23.4 ± 8.2 months). Femoral cartilage thickness was measured with ultrasound in the medial and lateral condyles and intercondylar areas of both knees. Gross motor subtest scaled scores of the Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development III were used for the motor performance assessment. There was a positive correlation between the gross motor scaled scores and the femoral cartilage thickness in both knee joints (p < .05; r = 0.415 for the right medial condyle; r = 0.323 for the right lateral condyle; r = 0.339 for the right intercondylar area; r = 0.369 for the left medial condyle; r = 0.364 for the left lateral condyle, and r = 0.590 for the left intercondylar area). The study demonstrated that the femoral cartilage thickness was positively correlated with gross motor functioning in children with DS.
