Opsoclonus as a manifestation of Hashimoto's encephalopathy

J Clin Neurosci. 2012 Oct;19(10):1465-6

Journal of Clinical Neuroscience

We present a 59-year-old male with early manifestation of opsoclonus associated with gait ataxia as a rare clinical presentation of Hashimoto's encephalopathy. Empiric use of intravenous immunoglobulin followed by intravenous high dose methylprednisolone was initiated with subsequent remittance of opsoclonus, encephalopathy, ataxia, and tremor. Extensive workup for infectious, autoimmune, and paraneoplastic etiologies were undertaken and all studies were negative. Thyroglobulin antibodies (312 U/mL) and thyroid peroxidase antibodies (457 U/mL) were elevated (normal <60 U/mL) with a euthyroid state (thyroid stimulating hormone 3.13 μIU/mL). Three months after intravenous steroid therapy, the concentrations of thyroglobulin and thyroid peroxidase antibodies were retested and found to have decreased considerably. Thus, with steroid therapy, the patient's opsoclonus and encephalopathy improved. We have presented a patient with a rare case of opsoclonus as the principal presenting feature of Hashimoto's encephalopathy that was incompletely responsive to intravenous immunoglobulin and resolved with corticosteroids. This report underscores the importance for clinical practitioners to maintain a high index of suspicion for Hashimoto's encephalopathy in cases of opsoclonus, especially when accompanied by an atypical presentation.

Neuromyelitis optica in a patient with pemphigus foliaceus.

J Neurol Sci. 2012 Aug 15;319(1-2):152-5

Journal of the Neurological Science

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO, also eponymously known as Devic's disease) is an immune-mediated demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that can lead to significant disability. Pediatric NMO is a rare disorder often reported after an infection. The authors report a 16 year-old female patient with pemphigus foliaceus who developed subacute optic neuritis followed by cervical transverse myelitis. Restricted distribution of the lesions in the optic nerve and spinal cord was confirmed by ophthalmological evaluation and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and spinal cord. She was started on intravenous methylprednisolone and then given a maintenance oral prednisone. Subsequently, she was treated with a nonsteroidal immunosuppressant, mycophenolate mofetil, with a target dose of 1000 mg twice a day. Over the course of months, patient noted significant recovery of previous deficits and resolution of the cervical cord enhancement, expansion and cystic dilatation that was previously seen. This case is noteworthy for being the first patient reported with neuromyelitis optica associated with pemphigus foliaceus.

Delayed posthypoxic leukoencephalopathy following a morphine overdose.

J Clin Neurosci. 2012 Jul;19(7):1060-2

Journal of Clinical Neuroscience

We describe one patient and review the literature to define delayed posthypoxic leukoencephalopathy, its etiology, pathophysiology and prognosis. We present a 54-year-old man with confusion and diffuse rigidity following a morphine overdose that had required intubation three weeks previously. A brain CT scan showed bilateral globi pallidi hypodensities and diffusion-weighted brain MRI (DWI) was consistent with acute cerebral anoxia. On day 20 after the initial presentation, the patient insidiously progressed to a state of "akinetic mutism". The brain MRI showed diffuse hyperintensity of the white matter on T2-weighted fluid-attenuated inversion recovery sequences. These areas were bright on DWI and were hypointense on the apparent diffusion coefficient map. An extensive autoimmune, metabolic, toxicological, and infectious work-up included arylsulfatase A enzyme levels, which were unremarkable. Therapy with levodopa was initiated with subsequent improvement of the diffuse rigidity. At discharge, the patient continued to be lethargic with moderate rigidity but began to display signs of recovery. He eventually fully recovered with residual mild confusion. Thus, delayed hypoxic leukoencephalopathy is a rare complication of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, occurring in 2.75% of victims of carbon monoxide poisoning. It typically manifests two to 40 days after apparent recovery from an obtunded state. Prognosis is variable, but recovery can be complete. This report brings to light an important syndrome that can easily be misdiagnosed. Patients who present with these clinical and radiographic features should be treated fully and given time to recover without abrupt withdrawal of care.
