Significance of Sufficient Neck Flexion During Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Diagnosis of Hirayama Disease: Report of Two Cases.

Ann Rehabil Med 2019 Oct 31;43(5):615-620. Epub 2019 Oct 31.

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Dongsan Medical Center, Keimyung University School of Medicine, Daegu, Korea.

It is difficult to distinguish Hirayama disease (HD) from other mimicking disorders in adolescent patients with distal upper limb weakness. The prevailing theory of HD postulates that the lower cervical cord is susceptible to compression during neck flexion because of insufficient growth of the dura relative to the spinal column. Confirmation of a dynamic change in the dorsal epidural space on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during neck flexion is essential for diagnosing HD. Read More

Ten-Year Follow-Up of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Study in a Patient With Congenital Mirror Movements: A Case Report.

Ann Rehabil Med 2019 Aug 31;43(4):524-529. Epub 2019 Aug 31.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Chonbuk National University Medical School, Jeonju, Korea.

Most studies concerning congenital mirror movements (CMMs) have been focused on the motor organization in the distal hand muscles exclusively. To the best of our knowledge, there is no data on motor organization pattern of lower extremities, and a scarcity of data on the significance of forearm and arm muscles in CMMs. Here, we describe the case of a 19-year-old boy presenting mirror movements.
