Purpose: Clustering of neural autoantibodies in patients with paraneoplastic neurologic disorders may predict tumor type. A mathematical analysis of neural autoantibody clusters was performed in 78,889 patients undergoing evaluation for a suspected paraneoplastic autoimmune neurologic disorder. Tumor predictive autoantibody profiles were confirmed...
Article
INTRODUCTION Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a fundamental component of longitudinal neuro-oncology evaluation and decision-making. The Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology criteria for low-grade gliomas (RANOLGG) was designed as an outcome measure for clinical trials. Thus, this project intends to study the reliability of RANOLGG in the clini...

Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is a multidimensional concept that measures how a disease and the treatment of that disease impact a patient’s life. It can also aid in the dialogue between physician and patient. As different therapies have distinct mechanisms, the HRQoL of a patient might be affected in diverse ways depending on the particul...
Article
It is unclear how the diagnosis of a second cancer influences the treatment and complications of patients with astrocytoma. A chart review of patients with astrocytoma and a second systemic cancer was performed to understand the possible complications that a systemic cancer diagnosis might bring to the treatment of the patient. Inclusion criteria w...
Article
Following clinic observations of patients with the diagnosis of oligodendroglioma and a systemic cancer, a chart review was done to understand the possible complications that a systemic cancer might bring to the treatment of the patient. Inclusion criteria was histological diagnosis of diffuse or anaplastic oligodendroglioma and another non-skin sy...
Article
It is unclear how the diagnosis of a second cancer influences the treatment and complications of patients with glioblastoma (GBM). A chart review of adults with primary or secondary GBM and another systemic cancer seen in the last five years was performed. Demographic data, thromboembolic events, cytopenia and deviations from the standardized GBM t...
Article
The objective of this manuscript is to identify the neurological side effect profile associated with different classes of antibodies used in cancer pharmacotherapy and to estimate the frequency in which these neurotoxicity occurs. A systematic review of the literature was conducted using OVID MEDLINE and EMBASE databases for articles written betwee...
Article
Importance Short transverse myelitis (STM; <3 vertebral segments) is considered noncharacteristic of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) spectrum disorders (NMOSDs). Nonappreciation of the potential for STM to occur in NMOSD may lead to increased disability from delay in diagnosis and appropriate treatment.Objectives To determine the frequency of short le...

Objective: To compare performance of contemporary aquaporin-4-immunoglobulin (Ig) G assays in clinical service. Methods: Sera from neurologic patients (4 groups) and controls were tested initially by service ELISA (recombinant human aquaporin-4, M1 isoform) and then by cell-based fluorescence assays: fixed (CBA, M1-aquaporin-4, observer-scored)...
Article
Epidemiological studies in Thailand have reported that inflammatory demyelinating diseases (IDDs) commonly affect the optic nerve and spinal cord. We investigated the diagnostic utility of aquaporin (AQP)-4-IgG testing in 31 consecutive patients evaluated for CNS IDDs in 3 academic Thai hospital neurology clinics between February 2008 and January 2...
Article
Purkinje cell cytoplasmic autoantibody-Tr (PCA-Tr [in recognition of the original reporting investigator, Dr. John L. Trotter]) is an immunoglobulin G (IgG) biomarker of paraneoplastic neurologic autoimmunity associated with Hodgkin lymphoma. Neurologic presentations reported to date include cerebellar ataxia (common) and limbic encephalitis (rare)...

As doenças desmielinizantes do sistema nervoso central podem ser agudas, subagudas ou crônicas. Dentre as agudas/subagudas, há algumas de evolução fulminante, como a esclerose múltipla tipo Marburg. Esta doença foi descrita em 1906 por Otto Marburg como quadro monofásico, clinicamente heterogêneo, progressivo e letal, ainda incompletamente caracter...
