Profile of adult and pediatric neurocysticercosis cases observed in five Southern European centers.

In Europe the management of neurocysticercosis (NCC) is challenging because health care providers are unaware of this condition, thus leading to diagn...

Clinical profile and follow-up of 51 pediatric neurocysticercosis cases: A study from Eastern India.
Our present observational study attempted to evaluate the clinical profiles, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up results of 51 pediatric neurocysticercosis patients over a mean duration of five years (from January 2006 to December 2010).

Five pediatric cases of ictal fear with variable outcomes.
Ictal fear is an uncommon condition in which fear manifests as the main feature of epileptic seizures. The literature has suggested that ictal fear is generally associated with poor seizure outcomes. We wanted to clarify the variability in seizure ou

Hypocalcemic cardiomyopathy-different mechanisms in adult and pediatric cases.
Hypocalcemic cardiomyopathy (CMP) is a rare but potentially reversible cause of heart failure. However, the mechanism of hypocalcemia seems to differ between infants and adults. Although severe vitamin D deficiency alone is the usual cause of hypocal

Candida Arthritis: Analysis of 112 Pediatric and Adult Cases.
Background.  Candida arthritis is a debilitating form of deeply invasive candidiasis. However, its epidemiology, clinical manifestations, management, and outcome are not well understood. Methods.  Cases of Candida arthritis were reviewed from 1967 th

Hydrocephalus and neurocysticercosis: cases illustrative of three distinct mechanisms.
Cysticercosis is the most frequent parasitic infection of the nervous system. Most lesions are intracranial, and spinal involvement is rare. We describe here in two cases of neurocysticercosis (NCC) in the brain and one in the spinal cord that illust

Survey on the management of anorectal malformations (ARM) in European pediatric surgical centers of excellence.
Various management strategies for anorectal malformations (ARM) have been proposed. The aim of this study was to assess the current management in centers of excellence in Europe.

Myelitis in systemic lupus erythematosus: clinical features, immunological profile and magnetic resonance imaging of five cases.
Myelopathy is one of the neuropsychiatric lupus syndromes. In this article, an original series of related lupus myelitis is reported and analyzed. We employed a retrospective chart review and identified all patients who were admitted to a general hos

Comparison of survival at adult versus pediatric treatment centers for rare pediatric tumors in an adolescent and young adult (AYA) population in the State of Georgia.
The type of treatment center where 15-21-year-old adolescent and young adult (AYA) patients with rare pediatric tumors achieve their best clinical outcome is unknown.

Three cases of imported neurocysticercosis in Northern Italy.
Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is an important cause of adult-onset seizures in endemic areas, whereas it is emerging in some nonendemic areas as well because of extensive immigration.

Genetic and clinical analysis of nonsyndromic hearing impairment in pediatric and adult cases.
Previous studies have linked GJB2 gene and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations to nonsyndromic hearing impairment (NSHI), but no study in China has yet investigated these mutations across all age groups. To fill the gap, this study ascertained 263 pa
