2562. Changes in cerebral cortex of children treated for medulloblastoma. (Abstract)

thinner cortex was found in the parietal lobe, posterior superior temporal gyrus, and lateral temporal lobe. These regions of cortical thinning overlapped with the regions of cortex that undergo normal age-related thinning.The spatial distribution of cortical thinning suggested that the areas of cortex that are undergoing development are more sensitive to the effects of treatment of medulloblastoma. Such quantitative methods may improve our understanding of the biologic effects that treatment has (...) after treatment of medulloblastoma. The measurements from these children were compared with the measurements from age- and gender-matched normally developing children previously scanned. For additional comparison, the pattern of thickness change was compared with the cortical thickness maps from a larger group of 65 normally developing children.In the left hemisphere, relatively thinner cortex was found in the perirolandic region and the parieto-occipital lobe. In the right hemisphere, relatively

After 1989, compared with the period before magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was available, there was an increase in GBM incidence rates among those with of higher SES that was most pronounced in females. The incidence of GBM was highest for frontal lobe tumors and for tumors that involved two or more lobes (overlapping tumors), followed by tumors in the temporal and parietal lobes. In the multivariate analysis, year of diagnosis, SES, gender, race (Latino but not black (...) -adjusted incidence rate (AAIR) of GBM increased from 1974 to 1999 by an estimated 2.4% per year among males and 2.8% per year among females. Overall, males had a 60% increased risk of brain tumors compared with females. Males had a higher incidence of GBM compared with females at each anatomic subsite except the posterior fossa. The largest male:female ratio occurred in the occipital lobes. Non-Latino whites had the highest incidence rates (2.5 per 100,000) followed by Latino whites (1.8 per 100,000

2564. A common variable immunodeficient patient who developed acute disseminated encephalomyelitis followed by the Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. (Abstract)

-yr-old female CVID patient with ADEM who evolutionally manifested the Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. She was admitted with convulsions and T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed high-intensity areas in the right temporal lobe and the left fronto-parietal region but she became conscious soon. Her serum findings showed severe hypogammaglobulinemia and a follow up MRI revealed that these areas had diminished. Consequently, she was diagnosed as having CVID with ADEM. After 5 months, she fell

2565. Cortical abnormalities in children and adolescents with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. (Abstract)

Cortical abnormalities in children and adolescents with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Results of structural brain imaging studies of patients with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder have shown subtle reductions in total brain volume and in volumes of the right frontal lobe and caudate nucleus. Although various conventional volumetric and voxel-based methods of image analysis have been used in these studies, regional brain size and grey-matter abnormalities have not yet been (...) in the frontal cortices of patients with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, with reduced regional brain size localised mainly to inferior portions of dorsal prefrontal cortices bilaterally. Brain size was also reduced in anterior temporal cortices bilaterally. Prominent increases in grey matter were recorded in large portions of the posterior temporal and inferior parietal cortices bilaterally.The frontal, temporal, and parietal regions are heteromodal association cortices that constitute

Decreased two-point discrimination. Astereognosis is the inability to recognise a familiar object placed in the hand. Extinction can be demonstrated by asking the patient to close their eyes and touch one side of their body. Ask the patient to point to where you touched. Repeat this but touching both sides (...) and the presentation may give an indication of the location of the lesion but not its aetiology. There may be more general symptoms related to raised intracranial pressure or seizures, behavioural changes, or false localising signs. Large lesions in some regions, such as the frontal lobe, may be relatively silent whilst a small lesion in the dominant hemisphere may devastate speech. A tumour may infiltrate and destroy important structures, it may obstruct the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSP) and cause

this may happen. Problems with joint position sense or vibration usually occur distally first. Vibration sense can be lost before joint position sense in peripheral neuropathy or myelopathy affecting the dorsal columns. Parietal lobe lesions can also cause impairment of two-point discrimination. The distal parts of the limbs tend to be affected in polyneuropathy, the legs usually being involved before the arms.

Stroke and dementia are the most common causes but any disease affecting these areas of the brain, including tumours, can be the cause. The disease process leads to loss of knowledge about how to perform skilled movements. Presentation There are various different types of apraxia, classified by the body area

2570. Dysarthria and Dysphasia

. Here it means the rhythm of speech. Conduction dysphasia/aphasia - lesions are around the arcuate fasciculus, posterior parietal and temporal regions. Symptoms are naming deficits, inability to repeat non-meaningful words and word strings, although there is apparently normal speech comprehension and production. Patients are aware of their difficulties. Deep dysphasia/ aphasia - lesions are in the temporal lobe, especially those mediating phonological processing. Symptoms are word repetition (...) problems and semantic paraphasia (semantically related word substituted when asked to repeat a target word). Transcortical sensory dysphasia/aphasia - lesions are in the junction areas of the temporal, parietal and occipital areas of left hemisphere. Symptoms are impaired comprehension, naming, reading, writing and semantic irrelevancies in speech. Transcortical motor dysphasia/aphasia - lesions are located between Broca's area and supplementary motor area. Symptoms are transient mutism, telegrammatic

2572. Visual Field Defects

until the fibres reach the geniculate body, so lesions in the tract before the geniculate body may produce incongruous defects. Lesions in the main optic radiation or optic peduncle cause complete (left or right) homonymous hemianopia without macular sparing. This is seen in stroke and middle cerebral artery lesions. Lesions in the temporal radiation cause upper quadrantic homonymous hemianopia, commonly with macular sparing - eg, tumours. Lesions in the parietal radiation cause inferior quadrantic (...) homonymous hemianopia without macular sparing. Lesions in the anterior visual cortex (common) produce a contralateral homonymous hemianopia with macular sparing - eg, posterior cerebral artery occlusion. Lesions in the macular cortex produce homonymous macular defect - eg, blunt injury to the occiput. Lesions of the intermediate visual cortex produce an homonymous arc scotoma, with sparing of both macula and periphery. This is seen in a distal posterior cerebral artery occlusion.

Using standard MRI, it may not be easy to differentiate from other acute vascular diseases but venous sinus thrombosis can be rapidly diagnosed by CT or MR venography. Angiography can identify vessel thrombosis, dissection, or vasculitis. Electroencephalography (EEG) can be used to identify subclinical seizures and can point to other causes of encephalopathy.

. Anterior abdominal wall: Via the umbilical vein - visible as caput medusae radiating from the umbilicus. May also occur where adhesions exist between abdominal viscera and the parietal peritoneum, or at sites of stomas or previous surgery. Anorectal junction - rarely cause bleeding. Veins from retroperitoneal viscera - communicate with systemic veins on the posterior abdominal wall. Other patterns of blood flow: If individual tributaries of the portal vein are thrombosed, this causes local venous (...) hypertension. With splenic vein block, oesophageal and gastric varices may result. In Budd-Chiari syndrome (hepatic vein occlusion), collaterals open up within the liver; blood tends to be diverted through the caudate lobe whose short hepatic veins drain directly into the inferior vena cava. Portosystemic venous anastomoses can cause encephalopathy, possibly due to various 'toxins' bypassing the liver's 'detoxification' process. Circulatory disturbances: Portal hypertension and cirrhosis produce

Functional brain imaging studies also suggest that these attentional filtering mechanisms are mediated by top-down feedback signals arising in higher-order areas in frontal and parietal cortex. However, it is not clear from these studies whether these frontal and parietal brain regions are functionally significant in attentional control of behavior. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) applied over a particular cortical region can interfere with cognitive processing in that region, thereby creating
