OBJECTIVE One of the more serious risks in the treatment of third ventricle craniopharyngiomas is represented by hypothalamic damage. Recently, many papers have reported the expansion of the indications for the endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) to be used for these tumors as well. The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of sleep-wake cycl...

Objective: The introduction of oral disease-modifying drugs (DMDs) in addition to the available, injectable, ones for Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) could be expected to improve medication persistence due to a greater acceptability of the route of administration. Aim of the study was to compare the proportion of patients discontinuin...
Article
Background Multiple sclerosis (MS) is characterized by phenotypical heterogeneity, partly resulting from demographic and environmental risk factors. Socio-economic factors and the characteristics of local MS facilities might also play a part. Methods This study included patients with a confirmed MS diagnosis enrolled in the Italian MS and Related...

Background Neurological COVID-19 disease has been reported widely, but published studies often lack information on neurological outcomes and prognostic risk factors. We aimed to describe the spectrum of neurological disease in hospitalised COVID-19 patients; characterise clinical outcomes; and investigate factors associated with a poor outcome. Me...
Article

Introduction: Nonketotic hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state (NKHHS) is associated with a wide spectrum of neurological syndromes including acute stroke-like deficits. Clinical features and etiology have not been established yet. Methods: Here we provide a case illustration and systematic review on non-epileptic acute neurological deficits in NKHSS...
Article
Introduction Early diagnosis and correct risk stratification in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) and minor ischemic stroke (MIS) is crucial for the high rate of subsequent disabling stroke. Although highly improved, diagnosis and prognostication of TIA/MIS patients remain still based on clinical and neuroimaging findings, with some int...
Article
Blood-derived biomarkers for brain and spinal cord diseases are urgently needed. The introduction of highly sensitive immunoassays led to a rapid increase in the number of potential blood-derived biomarkers for diagnosis and monitoring of neurological disorders. In 2018, the FDA authorized a blood test for clinical use in the evaluation of mild tra...

Friedreich ataxia is the most common form of hereditary ataxia. Heart involvement in Friedreich ataxia is common and can include increased left ventricular wall thickness, atrial fibrillation, and in the later stages, a reduction of left ventricular ejection fraction. We present the case of a 45-year-old man with a history of paroxysmal atrial fibr...

Introduction: Acute cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) may result in a variety of clinical presentations, with headache being the most common. The relationship between clinical and neuroradiological characteristics in acute CVT patients is still not univocally characterized. Materials and methods: We enrolled 32 consecutive acute CVT patients admitte...
Article
Introduction: Known risk factors for multiple sclerosis (MS) include smoking, a low vitamin D status, obesity, and EBV, while the inflammatory feature of the disease strongly suggests the presence of additional infectious agents. The association between use of antibiotics and MS risk that could shed light on these factors is still undetermined. We...

Since coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in January 2020, several pieces of evidence suggested an association between the spectrum of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). Most findings were reported in the form of case reports or case series, whereas a comprehensive overview is st...
Article
Background and Objective Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) causes a mean lymphocyte count drop of approximately 30% in relapsing‐remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients. The relationship between this reduction and DMF effectiveness is controversial. Objective To investigate if absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) decrease from baseline during DMF treatment i...
Article
Full-text available
Background Dysautonomic symptoms (DS) are frequent but often underrecognized in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, despite the relevant impact on quality of life and physical performance.Objectives To assess frequency and characteristics of DS in our MS population compared with healthy controls (HC). To investigate the relationship between DS and di...
Article
Objectives To evaluate the frequency, clinical and etiologic features, and short- and long-term outcomes of early recurrent TIA. Methods This prospective observational cohort study enrolled all consecutive patients with TIA referred to our emergency department and diagnosed by a vascular neurologist. Expedited assessment and best secondary prevent...
Article
Introduction: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease, causing axonal damage and disability. Dalfampridine (DAL) is an extended-release formulation of 4-aminopyridine (4AP) and broad-spectrum voltage-dependent potassium channel blocker that is reported to improve motor, visual and cognitive functions. Furthermore, it is presently the onl...
Article
Full-text available
X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (x-ALD) is a rare genetic disorder caused by a mutation in the ABCD1 gene, which encodes for a peroxisomal very long chain fatty acid transporter. Clinically, x-ALD can present a wide spectrum of different phenotypes: asymptomatic carriers, Addison only, cerebral x-ALD, and myelopathy with/without evidence of periphera...
Article
Sleep-related disorders have been reported to have a higher prevalence in multiple sclerosis (MS) than inthe general population. They are often undervalued for the presence of more severe physical problemsand the occurrence at night, without a direct observation in common clinical practice, but if notrecognized and treated they can negatively affec...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives: We aimed to assess the potential relationship between intrasubject 9-tetrahydrocannabinol/cannabidiol (THC/CBD) oromucosal spray plasma profiles and clinical effects elicited by subacute dosing in chronically treated patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Methods: The study design was pilot, single center, open, and prospective. The...
Article
Background: Teriflunomide is a once-daily oral immunomodulator approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) with a consistent safety profile in clinical trials. We report three cases of multiple teeth loss during teriflunomide treatment. Case reports: Case 1: a 39 year-old woman started teriflunomide for RRMS, swit...
