Diffuse lewy body disease presenting with a supranuclear gaze palsy.     a patient with diffuse lewy body disease presented with supranuclear vertical and horizontal ophthalmoplegia, dementia, axial rigidity and falls, bradykinesia and pyramidal signs. This broadens the clinical presentation of this pathological diagnosis and re-emphasises the heterogeneity of patients diagnosed clinically as progressive supranuclear palsy (steele-richardson-olszewski syndrome). (+info) 92/188. Pure akinesia: an atypical manifestation of progressive supranuclear palsy.     two patients with "pure akinesia" who showed the characteristic changes of progressive supranuclear palsy (psp) at necropsy are described. They had akinesia but no rigidity or tremor, and ophthalmoplegia was not observed during the course of illness. The symptoms of "pure akinesia" was not improved by levodopa therapy but was considerably improved by l-threo-3,4-dihydroxy-phenylserine. At necropsy, pathological findings were not different from those reported for psp. It is suggested that "pure akinesia" is an atypical manifestation of psp, and that norepinephrinergic neurons may be involved in some types of psp. (+info) 93/188. buy cheap generic viagra online Corticobasal degeneration. A unique pattern of regional cortical oxygen hypometabolism and striatal fluorodopa uptake demonstrated by positron emission tomography.     corticobasal degeneration presents with an asymmetric akinetic-rigid syndrome, apraxia and combinations of supranuclear gaze palsy, myoclonus, and an alien limb. Six patients aged 59-77 yrs, diagnosed on clinical criteria as having corticobasal degeneration, have been studied with positron emission tomography using tracers of dopamine storage capacity and oxygen metabolism. Striatal 18f-6-fluorodopa uptake was reduced in an asymmetric pattern, caudate and putamen being involved in all cases. Uptake into medial frontal cortex was also impaired. generic viagra next day delivery Regional cortical oxygen metabolism was most significantly depressed in the superior and posterior temporal, inferior parietal, and occipital associated cortices. Within the frontal lobe, the hypometabolism was chiefly posterior. This unique combination of regional hypometabolism and disruption of the nigrostriatal system is discussed in relation to the clinical features of the disease and is compared with reported findings in other disorders of cognition and movement. buy cheap generic viagra online (+info) 94/188. Positron emission tomography in progressive supranuclear palsy. buy viagra soft     positron emission tomography with 6-[18f]fluoro-l-dopa (6-fd) provides in vivo information on the function of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. We used 6-fd and positron emission tomography to investigate the integrity of the nigrostriatal system in seven patients with progressive supranuclear palsy. All patients had axial hypertonia, vertical gaze palsy, and parkinsonian features. Dementia, pyramidal signs, and ataxia were seen in varying proportions. We analyzed the scans with a graphic method to calculate a steady-state 6-fd uptake rate constant for the whole striatum. Results were compared with those obtained in seven age-matched controls. As a group, the patients with progressive supranuclear palsy had reduced 6-fd uptake constants. order viagra no prescription The 6-fd uptake constant correlated inversely with the duration of the disease. Normal positron emission tographic findings in one patient with the shortest duration of symptoms suggests that in early progressive supranuclear palsy, parkinsonism may relate to dysfunction distal to the dopaminergic neurons. (+info) 95/188. Parkinsonism and extraocular motor abnormalities with unusual neuropathological findings.     parkinsonian patients with ocular motility abnormalities are usually considered to have progressive supranuclear palsy. However, a number of other conditions have been noted to have the combination of parkinsonism and ocular problems. We report a case of rigid akinetic parkinsonism, oculomotor palsy, and eyelid apraxia with postmortem examination. Our findings are unusual in that there was marked gliosis of the substantia nigra with a large amount of free extracellular neuromelanin despite a 3-year clinical course. Only rare hyaline inclusion bodies and no neurofibrillary tangles were seen in the brainstem. Excessive calcification of the vessels of the globus pallidus were also noted. buy cheap generic viagra online This case represents another example of the diversity of conditions producing parkinsonism with extraocular motor abnormalities. (+info) 96/188. A case of progressive supranuclear palsy with widespread senile plaques. buy cheap generic viagra online     a case of progressive supranuclear palsy (psp) with frontal lobe atrophy is reported, in which many senile plaques were widely distributed in the neocortex, the entorhinal cortex, the amygdala, and, to a lesser extent, the cerebellar cortex, but not in the hippocampus. Most of the plaques were of the diffuse and primitive types. discount viagra They were well. buy cheap generic viagra online West Virginia Relay Flyer
