3781. Access to special care dentistry, part 2. Communication. (Abstract)

for communicating with patients with neurological impairments typically seen after stroke, such as aphasia and dysarthria, with tips for the listener including the use of communication aids where appropriate. Finally it will consider communicating with patients who have autistic spectrum conditions and discuss how effective techniques and a tailored approach to their specific needs and anxieties can increase the likelihood of a successful dental visit.

3782. Determinants of health-related quality of life in Nigerian stroke survivors. (Abstract)

in Ibadan. The stroke levity scale (SLS) was used to assess stroke severity. HRQOL was assessed using the psychometrically robust HRQOL in stroke patients (HRQOLISP) questionnaire. HRQOL determinants were sought among variables such as age, gender, socio-economic class (SEC), post-stroke duration, side, type and number of strokes, SLS, modified Rankin scale (mRS), social support, and Likert-graded responses to laughter and negative feelings frequencies. Gender, aphasia, handedness, stroke side, type

3784. Clinical and radiographic spectrum of pathologically confirmed tumefactive multiple sclerosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

was a first neurological event in 61%, relapsing-remitting in 29% and progressive in 4%. Presentations were typically polysymptomatic, with motor, cognitive and sensory symptoms predominating. Aphasia, agnosia, seizures and visual field defects were observed. At follow-up, 70% developed definite multiple sclerosis, and 14% had an isolated demyelinating syndrome. Median time to second attack was 4.8 years, and median EDSS at follow-up was 3.0. Multiple lesions were present in 70% on pre-biopsy MRI

3785. Motor cortex stimulation for central pain following a traumatic brain injury. (Abstract)

was typically delayed due to the patient's decreased ability to express his pain for severe aphasia as a neurological sequela. The severe burning pain, deep pressure-like pain, and deep mechanical allodynia, which presented over the contralateral side to the TBI, were successfully relieved with motor cortex stimulation (MCS). The analgesic effect of stimulation was found to be long lasting and was still present at the 12-month follow up. As shown in this patient, the occurrence of central pain syndrome

were administered to the first cohort of patients. A subsequent cohort received the same therapy, with the exceptions that intrathecal therapy was reduced to six doses and radiotherapy was administered only to high-risk individuals.The median follow-up durations were 6.8 years in Cohort 1 and 4.1 years in Cohort 2. Three occurrences of transverse myelitis, 2 severe neuropathies, 3 cases of aphasia, and 1 case of blindness were documented in the first cohort of 52 patients (Cohort 1

are distinct but have some overlap. The relationship between the epileptiform EEG abnormalities and the loss of cognitive function remains controversial, even in LKS which is the most widely accepted as an acquired epileptic aphasia. Language regression also occurs in younger children, frequently in the context of a more global autistic regression. Many of these children have epileptiform EEGs. The term autistic regression with epileptiform EEG has been proposed for these children. Whether these children

3788. Efficacy of very high dose steroid treatment in a case of Landau-Kleffner syndrome. (Abstract)

Efficacy of very high dose steroid treatment in a case of Landau-Kleffner syndrome. Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS) is an acquired childhood aphasia associated with paroxysmal bitemporal electroencephalogram (EEG) abnormalities and, sometimes, clinical seizures. We report the case of a female aged 5 years 6 months who presented clinically with apparent hearing loss, deterioration in speech, and seizure activity over 12 days. The female had previous detailed speech/language assessments at 3 to 4

Other complications included VIth cranial nerve dysfunction in 12 cases (1.68%), subdural hematoma in 3 cases (0.4%), cerebellopontine angle hematoma in 4 cases (0.6%), cerebellar edema in 2 cases (0.28%), brainstem hematoma in 1 case (0.14%), transitory aphasia in 1 case (0.14%), and lower cranial nerve dysfunction in 1 case (0.14%). Mortality occurred

3790. Delayed brain atrophy after electrical injury. (Abstract)

Delayed brain atrophy after electrical injury. We report a case of delayed brain atrophy after electrical injury. A 12-year-old boy sustained extensive burns by touching a high-voltage power line. The burn area comprised more than 60% TBSA, and he subsequently underwent several surgical procedures. Two months later, he suddenly developed seizures. Initial findings on magnetic resonance imaging showed diffuse cortical damage in the left brain. Two months later, motor aphasia appeared

numbness, one; seizures, one; expressive aphasia, one; and hearing loss, two.Of the 16 patients in this study, one patient needed postoperative care in a skilled nursing facility. Postoperative facial nerve weakness was not experienced in any patient. One patient developed a transient cerebrospinal fluid leak that resolved spontaneously. One patient developed a pseudomeningocele secondary to postoperative hydrocephalus. This was corrected with wound exploration and placement of a ventricular peritoneal

, such as nasal obstruction, dysphasia, and hoarseness, relevant to location of the lesion. Fine needle aspiration cytology, computed tomography scans, and magnetic resonance imaging may provide limited implications in the diagnosis of schwannomas, whereas postoperative pathologic examination establishes the final diagnosis.Complete surgical excisions with appropriate approaches have proven to be efficient and successful in the treatment of head and neck schwannomas.

3793. I can hear you yet cannot comprehend: a case of pure word deafness. (Abstract)

I can hear you yet cannot comprehend: a case of pure word deafness. This report describes a 25-year-old man with acute head trauma and brain damage resulting in pure word deafness. Bilateral temporal lobe pathology was confirmed by brain imaging and functional brain studies. A brief discussion about the difference between pure word deafness and other aphasias, as well as anatomic correlation is provided.

is generally considered benign, and there are only two cases published in the literature reporting toxicity following intravenous infusion--such toxicity is a diagnosis of exclusion. We report a case of methylene blue toxicity resulting in expressive aphasia, confusion and disinhibition following infusion for parathyroid adenoma localization. The patient made a complete recovery over 48 hours. Methaemoglobinaemia was excluded as a cause. We suggest that the mechanism of toxicity was a direct effect
