Brain MRI Findings and Distribution of the Findings According to the Age Groups in Childhood Epilepsies

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.175
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
The most common pathology in all age groups that caused epilepsy in children was the indication of parenchymal damage. Another common pathology is hippocampal sclerosis and cortical developmental abnormalities. MRI is a noninvasive imaging modality that can be used to identify pathologies that do not involve any ionizing radiation and lead to epileptic attacks in childhood.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We aimed to retrospectively analyze the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) observations and the distribution of etiological factors according to age groups in cases with MRI examinations for an epilepsy diagnosis.

Methods: The brain MRI of 606 cases from the 0–17 years age group were analyzed retrospectively, and the findings were evaluated according to the age group.

A Case Report: Successful Treatment of Meningeal Metastasis with Concurrent Whole Brain Radiotherapy and Erlotinib in a Patient with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Issue: 
Pages: 
106–8


ABSTRACT

We report a case of successful treatment with erlotinib of a patient with non-small cell lung cancer (stage IV) and meningeal metastasis. Combined treatment with whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) and erlotinib mitigated neurologic symptoms of the patient. Magnetic resonance imaging showed reduction of the brain metastasis. Partial remission was observed by chest computed tomography (CT) scan after six months of erlotinib therapy.

Primary Intestinal-type Adenocarcinoma of the Nasal Cavity: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.220
Pages: 
678–80

ABSTRACT

We report a rare case of sinonasal intestinal-type adenocarcinoma in the nasal cavity. A 31-year old man presented with headache and epistaxis. We identified a malignant tumour, which is a rare pathology, with detailed physical examination, anterior rhinoscopy, computed tomography scan, magnetic resonance imaging and histopathologic examination. Endoscopic excision of the tumour was performed. After three years of follow-up of the patient in our clinic, there was no sign of any recurrence.

Right Ovarian Mucinous Cystadenoma Coexisting with an Incidental Left Ovarian Haemangioma in a Postmenopausal Patient

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.276
Pages: 
812–4

The Editor,

Sir,

Haemangiomas were first described by Payne in 1869. In the literature, their coexistence with various diseases of the female genital tract has been reported. Our case differs in in that a postmenopausal woman had a mucinous cystadenoma in one ovary and an incidentally discovered cavernous haemangioma with focal positivity for progesterone receptor (PR) in the other ovary.

Closing the Gap between Preclinical Biologic Development and Clinical Application in Rheumatoid Arthritis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.100
Pages: 
312–3
 
The Editor,
Sir,

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease; deferment and relapse of aggressive synovitis finally leads to destruction of joint cartilage and bone, and that is the main hazard of the disease. In recent years, biologic reagents have become a hot spot of RA treatment research, owing to their higher specificity and fewer side effects than existing non-biologic disease-modifying and anti-inflammatory drugs.
