  • Interleukin-18 promoter polymorphisms and idiopathic Parkinson disease: an
           Egyptian study
    • Authors: Ebtesam Fahmy; Amany Rabah; Sahar Sharaf; Hanan Helmy; Ahmed Kamal
      Abstract: Etiology of sporadic Parkinson’s disease (PD) is largely unknown. The contribution of genetic factors to the pathogenesis of PD is supported by the demonstration of high concordance in twins, increased risk among relatives of PD patients and existence of familial cases. This study aimed to examine the relation between interleukin 18 (IL-18) gene promoter polymorphisms and idiopathic PD, and its impact on clinical presentation and disease severity. 30 idiopathic PD patients and 15 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects were included. Disease severity was assessed using Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). Genetic testing for IL-18 gene promoter −607C/A single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) was done using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique. A raised risk of PD development was found in patients with A/C and C/C genotypes of the site −607C/A (odds ratios = 1.83 and 1.98, respectively). The distribution of the genotypes showed no significant relation to gender or predominant clinical presentation. The age at onset of disease was significantly lower in C/C and A/A genotypes compared to A/C genotype (p = 0.001 and 0.04, respectively). Patients with A/A genotype showed significantly higher mentation score of UPDRS compared to patients with A/C and C/C genotypes (p = 0.003 and p = 0.002, respectively). Polymorphisms of IL-18 gene promoter increase the risk of developing idiopathic PD. The polymorphisms may affect phenotypic expression rather than being a direct cause of idiopathic PD.

  • Neurological disease in the aftermath of terrorism: a review
    • Authors: Harald De Cauwer; Francis J. M. P. Somville
      Abstract: The purpose of our review is to discuss current knowledge on long-term sequelae and neurological disorders in the aftermath of a terrorist attack. The specific aspects of both psychological and physical effects are mentioned in more detail in this review. Also, the outcomes such as stress-related disorders, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative disease are explained. Moreover, PTSD and posttraumatic structural brain changes are a topic for further investigations of the patients suffering from these attacks. Not only the direct victims are prone to the after effects of the terroristic attacks, but the rescue workers, physicians, witnesses and worldwide citizens may also be affected by PTSD and other neurological diseases as well. The determination of a whole series of risk factors for developing neurological disorders can be a means to set up early detection, preventative measures, to refine treatment and thus to gain better outcome in the future.

  • Effects of ultrasound-guided botulinum toxin type-A injections with a
           specific approach in spastic cerebral palsy
    • Authors: Raikan Büyükavcı; Mehmet Akif Büyükavcı
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to detect effects of ultrasound-guided botulinum toxin type-A (US-guided BoNT-A) injections prepared according to lower extremity innervation zones on spasticity and motor function in 3–16 years children with diplegic and hemiplegic spastic cerebral palsy. This study included 25 patients between 3 and 16 years of age who admitted to our clinic in 2017, were being followed in our clinic with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, had BoNT-A injections due to lower extremity spasticity. The US-guided BoNT-A injections were administered into the spastic muscles using a specific approach according to innervation zones of muscle. Modified Ashworth Scale (MAS) and Gross Motor Functional Classification System (GMFCS) were assessed at the baseline, and 4 and 12 weeks after the BoNT-A injections. Minimum and maximum ages of the patients were 45 and 192 months, and gender distribution was 8 females and 17 males. Significant decreases in the MAS scores of the knee and ankle tones were measured 4 and 12 weeks after the BoNT-A injection when compared to the baseline scores (p < 0.025). Hip muscle tonus only decreased 12 weeks after the injection (p < 0.025). In parallel with a reduction in spasticity GMFCS improved from 3 to 2 in the 4th and 12th weeks. US-guided BoNT-A injections with Euro-musculus approach is a practical and effective method to perform injections into proper points of proper muscles in children with spastic cerebral palsy.

  • Evaluation of diffusion tensor imaging changes and neurocognitive effects
           of asymptomatic vitamin B12 deficiency
    • Authors: Ali Zeynal Abidin Tak; Erdal Dayan; Hacı Taner Bulut
      Abstract: Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the mechanisms which are responsible for myelinization in the central nervous system. It can particularly lead to hematological and neuropsychiatric symptoms when serum levels fall due to insufficient intake with diet or absorption problems. The purpose of this study was to show the cognitive effects in vitamin B12 deficiency cases that have not reached clinical symptom level using neuropsychological tests, and to show possible cerebral neuronal damage using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) method. A total of 62 asymptomatic vitamin B12 deficiency patients and 40 healthy subjects were included in the study and both groups were subjected to Standardized Mini-Mental State Examination, Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test, Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test, forward and backward digit span (WMS-R forward and backward), Visual Reproduction Subtest (WMS-III), Category Fluency Test, Trail Making (Trail A-B) (21) and Similarities (BENZ) tests. DTI examinations were performed on both groups. Patient group was determined to get lower scores in all neuropsychological tests compared to control group. In DTI examination, a significant decrease in FA values of bilateral hippocampus and a prominent increase in apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values were determined in the patient group compared to control group. In this study, it was determined that there was microstructural damage in the brain in the presence of vitamin B12 deficiency even in the asymptomatic period, and the patients revealed cognitive decline. In accordance with this result, early treatment of the easily diagnosed and treated vitamin B12 deficiency may prevent possible irreversible damage in the future.

      Abstract: The objective of this study is to investigate effects of minimally invasive approaches on outcome of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) by novel YL-1 puncture needle and burr-hole methods. A retrospective analysis was performed in 158 hospitalized CSDH patients from January, 2013 to December, 2017 in Kunshan Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Patients’ gender, age, history of trauma, volume of hematoma, hematoma location, application of urokinase, surgical approach, the operation time, hospitalized time, and CT scans 3 months after discharge were recorded. Prognostic indicators including symptom relief and post-hospital neuro-imaging findings were extracted to evaluate surgical efficacy. Statistical methods were conducted to evaluate surgical efficacy. Both YL-1 puncture needle and burr-hole surgeries had a satisfying follow-up (93.67%). There was non-significant group difference in follow-up results (p > 0.05). While YL-1 needle group needs less operation time ((p < 0.001) and hospitalized time (p < 0.001), gender (p = 0.144), age (p = 0.394), history of head trauma (p = 0.445), volume of hematoma (p = 0.068), hematoma location (p = 0.281), and application of urokinase (p = 0.545) were shown non-significantly associated with these two minimally invasive approaches. Volume of hematoma was significantly associated with follow-up outcomes (p = 0.016). Novel YL-1 puncture needle and classic burr-hole craniotomy are both proved to be safe and effective minimally invasive surgeries, which can provide an early intervention and minimally invasive strategy for neurosurgeons.

      Abstract: It is believed that myasthenia gravis (MG) with antibodies to muscle-specific tyrosine kinase (MuSK) is the most severe form of the disease, especially in the first years of the disease. The aim of our study was to investigate quality of life (QoL) in a population of patients with MuSK MG compared to those with MG who have antibodies to acetylcholine receptor (AChR) in their sera. The study group consisted of 35 MuSK MG patients (28 females and 7 males), while the control group included 38 AChR MG patients matched for gender, age, and duration of the disease. SF-36 questionnaire was used to evaluate the health-related QoL. Following scales were also used: Hamilton’s scales for depression and anxiety, the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, and the Acceptance of Illness Scale. Physical domain scores of QoL were similarly affected in both MuSK and AChR groups, while mental domain and total SF-36 scores were even better in MuSK MG patients. Social support was better in the MuSK group (77.3 ± 9.3 vs. 70.6 ± 14.1, p < 0.05). SF-36 total score correlated with depression (rho = 0.54, p < 0.01), anxiety (rho = 0.49, p < 0.01), and MSPSS (rho = − 0.35, p < 0.05), and depression was an independent predictor of worse QoL. Besides therapy of weakness, psychiatric treatment and different forms of psychosocial condition should be part of regular therapeutic protocols for MG. Adequate team work of health professionals and family can provide a healthy mental environment in which a MuSK MG patient would feel more comfortable in spite of the disease.

  • Uncommon and/or bizarre features of dementia. Part II
    • Authors: Gabriele Cipriani; Sabrina Danti; Angelo Nuti; Claudio Lucetti; Mario Di Fiorino
      Abstract: In the past decades, clinicians have recognized that dementia may appear as atypical or variant syndromes, as well as the typical form. This study aimed at describing uncommon or bizarre symptoms/syndromes observed in patients suffering from dementia. Medline and Google scholar searches were conducted for relevant articles, chapters, and books published before 2017. Search terms used included delusional jealousy, delusion of pregnancy, dementia, erotomania, folie à deux, and lycanthropy. Publications found through this indexed search were reviewed for further relevant references. The uncommon symptoms/syndromes were described as case reports and there were no systematic investigations.

  • Posterior limb of the internal capsule predicts poor quality of life in
           patients with Parkinson’s disease: connectometry approach
    • Authors: Farzaneh Ghazi Sherbaf; Mahtab Mojtahed Zadeh; Maryam Haghshomar; Mohammad Hadi Aarabi
      Abstract: Psychiatric symptoms and motor impairment are major contributions to the poor quality of life in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Here, we applied a novel diffusion-weighted imaging approach, diffusion MRI connectometry, to investigate the correlation of quality of life, evaluated by Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ39) with the white matter structural connectivity in 27 non-demented PD patients (disease duration of 5.3 ± 2.9 years, H and Y stage = 1.5 ± 0.6, UPDRS-III = 13.7 ± 6.5, indicating unilateral and mild motor involvement). The connectometry analysis demonstrated bilateral posterior limbs of the internal capsule (PLIC) with increased connectivity related to the higher quality of life (FDR = 0.027) in a multiple regression model. The present study suggests for the first time a neural basis of the quality of life in PD in the light of major determinants of poor quality of life in these patients: anxiety, depression, apathy and motor impairment. Results in our sample of non-demented PD patients with relatively mild motor impairment and no apparent sign of depression/anxiety also identify a unique and inexplicable association of the PLIC to the quality of life in PD patients.

      Abstract: Multiple sclerosis is considered to be an immune mediated inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system. It mainly affects young, socioeconomic active patients. Although our armamentarium for this disease has significantly evolved in recent years some patients remain refractory to conventional therapies. In these cases, autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can be considered as a therapeutic option. Decreasing morbidity, mortality, and increasing patient awareness have led to rising inquiry by our patients about this treatment option. With the aim of a standardized protocol and data registration, a Belgian working party on stem cell therapy in multiple sclerosis was established. In this paper, we report the consensus protocol of this working party on autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in multiple sclerosis.

  • Single-centre experience on transthyretin familial amyloid polyneuropathy:
           case series and literature review
    • Authors: Broes Martens; Michel De Pauw; Jan L. De Bleecker
      Abstract: Familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) is a most often length-dependent axonal neuropathy, often part of a multisystem disorder also affecting other organs, such as cardiac, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, renal, meningeal and eye tissue. It is most frequently the result of a mutation in the TTR gene, most commonly a p.Val50Met mutation. TTR-FAP is a rare autosomal dominant heritable disabling, heterogeneous disease in which early diagnosis is of pivotal importance when attempting treatment. This paper discusses the course of four Belgian FAP patients with different TTR mutations (p.Val48Met; p.Val52Ala; p.Ala59Val; p.Val50Met). We also review the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of TTR-FAP, diagnostic studies, follow-up, its current treatment and those in development, prognosis and the importance of genetic counseling. At first, TTR-FAP is often misdiagnosed as a chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy or chronic idiopathic axonal polyneuropathy. Genetic testing is obligatory to confirm the diagnosis of TTR-FAP, except in familial cases. Biopsy samples are an asset in diagnosing TTR-FAP but can be falsely negative. At the moment, tafamidis meglumine is considered as first-line treatment in stage I neurological disease. Patients eligible for liver transplantation should be carefully selected when first-line therapy fails.
