Ovarian cancer revealed by paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration: a case report.
The prevalence of paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) associated with gynecological cancer is rare. Here, we reported the first case of ovarian cancer revealed by PCD in our institute. we describe a 80-year-old Moroccan female presented with

Progressive cerebellar degeneration revealing Primary Sjögren Syndrome: a case report.
Cerebellar ataxia represents a rare and severe complication of Sjӧgren syndrome (SS), especially with a progressive onset and cerebellar atrophy on imaging.

Calcium channel blocker verapamil accelerates gambogic acid-induced cytotoxicity via enhancing proteasome inhibition and ROS generation.
Verapamil (Ver), an inhibitor of the multidrug resistance gene product, has been proved to be a promising combination partner with other anti-cancer agents including proteasome inhibitor bortezomib. Gambogic acid (GA) has been approved for Phase II c

N-type calcium channel antibody-mediated autoimmune encephalitis: An unlikely cause of a common presentation.
We report, to our knowledge, the only known pediatric case with encephalopathy and significantly elevated titers of N-type voltage-gated calcium channel antibody (N-type VGCC). The patient, an 8th grader, was previously healthy and presented with a o

Anti-Yo positive and late-onset paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration associated with ovarian carcinoma: A case report.
Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is a rare nonmetastatic neurological complication often associated with ovarian, breast, and other gynecologic cancers. Anti-Yo is one of the antionconeural antibodies found in patients with PCD. It primar

Deletion of Inpp5a causes ataxia and cerebellar degeneration in mice.
The progressive and permanent loss of cerebellar Purkinje cells (PC) is a hallmark of many inherited ataxias. Mutations in several genes involved in the regulation of Ca(2+) release from intracellular stores by the second messenger IP3 have been asso
