Jul 1st, 2022 - Natural killer (NK) cells play an essential role in the immune response against cancer. However, immune escape mechanisms may cause inferior NK cell activity (NKA) in patients with cancer. This prospective study examined the relationship between NKA and lung cancer in a high-risk cohort. In a cohort study, 250 participants referred by their general practitioner for suspicion of lung cancer were...

Jul 1st, 2022 - Interictal epileptiform discharges on EEG are integral to diagnosing epilepsy. However, EEGs are interpreted by readers with and without specialty training, and there is no accepted method to assess skill in interpretation. We aimed to develop a test to quantify IED recognition skills. A total of 13,262 candidate IEDs were selected from EEGs and scored by eight fellowship-trained reviewers to e...

Jul 1st, 2022 - Epilepsy with myoclonic absences is a rare epilepsy syndrome with distinct features and high rates of drug resistance. Identifying this syndrome may help guide treatment decisions. We highlight clinical heterogeneity in this case series and two cases in which corpus callosotomy was performed. Medical records were reviewed between 2017 and 2021 to identify demographics, comorbidities, age at ons...

Jul 1st, 2022 - Patients with suspected non-convulsive seizures are optimally evaluated with EEG. However, limited EEG infrastructure at community hospitals often necessitates transfer for long-term EEG monitoring (LTM). Novel point-of-care EEG systems could expedite management of nonconvulsive seizures and reduce unnecessary transfers. We aimed to describe the impact of rapid access to EEG using a novel EEG d...

Jul 1st, 2022 - Epilepsy surgery can potentially cure drug-resistant epilepsy, but careful presurgical evaluation is vital to select patients who will profit from such an intervention. Many epilepsy surgery programs offer extensive presurgical evaluation including several days of video-EEG monitoring. Non-lesional epilepsy cases are rare among epilepsy surgery patients. We set up a lesion-orientated paediatric...

Jul 1st, 2022 - Elsberg syndrome (ES) is an infectious syndrome presenting with variable signs of acute lumbosacral radiculomyelitis. Its low recognition rate leads to misdiagnosis and incorrect treatment. Thus, some ES patients may develop neurological sequelae. This case described a 74-year-old woman complained of urinary retention, constipation, and sacral numbness after herpes zoster in the perianal area. ...
