Pneumococcal meningitis with accompanying severe hearing loss: 3D-FLAIR imaging of the inner ear and treatment.
A 66-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of unconsciousness. He was diagnosed with pneumococcal meningitis and treated with a combination of antibiotics (meropenem hydrate), dexamethasone, and intravenous immunoglobulin. Although he gradually regained consciousness, he started showing...
A case of tuberculous meningitis complicated with multiple drug hypersensitivity to antituberculosis agents.
We present a case of MDH caused by antituberculosis agents during the treatment of tuberculous meningitis (TBM). A 64-year-old man without a history of drug allergy developed fever and severe headache. Examination of cerebrospinal fluid showed lymphocytosis, a low glucose level, and a high ADA activ...

[Rapid progressive focal myositis of the head and neck region: a case report].
A 46-year-old woman noticed a painful lump in the neck following fluctuating multiple arthralgia in the previous 3 months. The neck nodule grew rapidly, and was associated with an elevation of the serum creatine kinase activity. Under a diagnosis of focal myositis, corticosteroids were introduced, s...

[Sema4A as a biomarker predicting responsiveness to IFN β treatment].
We investigated whether recombinant Sema4A abrogates the efficacy of IFN-β in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of MS. Administration of Sema4A concurrently with IFN-β abrogated the efficacy of IFN-β. These effects of Sema4A were attributed to promote Th1 and...
[My way to "Keep Pioneering": integrated neuroscience and immunology research produces a paradigm shift for intractable neurological disease...
We found that peripheral atopic inflammation in mice produces allodynia as well as activation of microglia and astroglia in the spinal cord. It is important to involve a variety of medical specialists and care coordinators for collaborative work on medical and social care issues for people with intr...
[Clinical features and MRI characteristics in neuralgic amyotrophy].
Neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) is a distinct peripheral nervous system (PNS) disorder characterised by sudden attacks of neuropathic pain, usually in a unilateral upper extremity, and patchy paresis with amyotrophy. Under-recognition of NA patients may be frequent because symptoms of NA can be similar to...
