Autonomic dysfunction manifesting with asymmetric face flushing and paroxysmal nonconvulsive episodes.
We report on a boy who first showed this anomaly at 4 years of age, followed up for 6 years. During this time, we saw an increase in the frequency and duration of the episodes of asymmetric face flushing. In the past months, the episodes were associated with a wider involvement of autonomic symptoms...
Cognitive trajectories in 4 patients with pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis: serial evaluation over a decade.
We report the clinical features and cognitive trajectories in 4 pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis patients who were 10 years or younger at first attack and were followed between 1998 and 2010. Relapses in all 4 patients were frequent early in the disease and became infrequent or absent over time. D...
The role of visual electrophysiology in mucopolysaccharidoses.
Visual electrophysiological techniques represent excellent means for assessing retinal, optic pathways and visual cortex function. Electroretinograms, visual evoked potentials, and clinical records of 17 patients with mucopolysaccharidosis registered in the neurophysiological database of our institu...
Episodic migraines in children: limited evidence on preventive pharmacological treatments.
The authors conducted a systematic literature review of preventive pharmacological treatments for episodic childhood migraines searching several databases through May 20, 2012. Episodic migraine prevention was examined in 24 publications of randomized controlled trials that enrolled 1578 children in...
Use of dietary therapy for status epilepticus.
One of the newest and yet fastest growing indications for dietary therapy is the emergency treatment of refractory status epilepticus. Ten retrospective publications since 2008 have reported benefits in 32 children and adults, of whom 25 (78%) became seizure-free. Most of the patients who responded...
High-fat and ketogenic diets in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
We review the currently available evidence supporting the potential role of dietary interventions as a therapeutic tool for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Ultimately, determining whether a high-fat or ketogenic diet could be beneficial in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis will require large randomized,...
Ketogenic diets and pain.
We review clinical and basic research thus far exploring the impact of a ketogenic diet on thermal pain, inflammation, and neuropathic pain....
Mentoring the next generation of academic child neurologists.
Case series: fractional anisotropy along the trajectory of selected white matter tracts in adolescents born preterm with ventricular dilatio...
This case series assesses white matter microstructure in 3 adolescents born preterm with nonshunted ventricular dilation secondary to intraventricular hemorrhage. Subjects (ages 12-17 years, gestational age 26-29 weeks, birth weight 825-1624 g) were compared to 3 full-term controls (13-17 years, 39-...
