Rev Neurol 2019 Mar;68(6):255-263

Hospital La Fe, 46009 Valencia, Espana.

Introduction: Epileptic seizures and epilepsy are part of daily clinical practice in neurology. Yet, the number of false positive diagnoses is surprisingly high. Almost one out of every five patients treated for epilepsy does not really have this diagnosis, which is a high percentage bearing in mind the social and medical consequences that being diagnosed with epilepsy entails.

Rev Neurol 2019 Mar;68(6):236-240

HUMS. Hospital Universitario Miguel Servet, 50009 Zaragoza, Espana.

[The return of the statisticians. On the value of statistics in clinical neuropsychology].

Authors:
A Pico

Rev Neurol 2019 Mar;68(5):207-212

Universidad de Valencia, 46071 Valencia, Espana.

There was a time when clinicians looked down on any decision-making that did not depend on their own judgement. Statisticians laughed at such naivety, as they were fully aware of the extent to which the heuristics that guide human decisions are capable of error, even in the most highly trained individuals. More than 60 years after the beginning of this conflict, the two standpoints have still not been adopted in clinical psychology or in neuropsychology. Read More

[Fragile X associated tremor/ataxia syndrome: its clinical presentation, pathology, and treatment].

Rev Neurol 2019 Mar;68(5):199-206

University of California, San Francisco, EE.UU.

The fragile X associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) is a neurodegenerative disease associated with the repetition of CGG triplets (55-200 CGG repetitions) in the FMR1 gene. The premutation of the FMR1 gene, contrasting with the full mutation (more than 200 CGG repetitions), presents an increased production of messenger and a similar or slightly decreased production of FMRP protein. FXTAS affects 40% of men and 16% of women carriers of the premutation. Read More

[«Apuntes en Neurologia» (Notes in Neurology): a synthesis of the evidence on common paroxysmal neurological disorders and on neurodegenerative disorders].

Rev Neurol 2018 Nov;67(s01):S1-S21

Hospital La Fe, 46009 Valencia, Espana.

«Apuntes en Neurologia» is an initiative in which prominent national and international leaders, with broad academic recognition, came together to synthesise the most outstanding clinical aspects within their area of interest and to discuss the latest developments in a more accessible language. Understanding the factors that affect the onset and progression of any neurological disease through a review is important to be able to develop strategies to reduce the burden of these diseases. Moreover, knowledge of the clinical aspects is essential to solve the problems of daily clinical practice. Read More

Congenital CLN8 disease of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis: a novel phenotype.

Rev Neurol 2019 Feb;68(4):155-159

Hospital de Ninos de la Santisima Trinidad, Cordoba, Argentina.

Introduction: CLN8 disease is one of the thirteen recognized genetic types of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, a group of neurodegenerative lysosomal storage disorders, most frequent in childhood. A putative 286 amino acids transmembrane CLN8 protein with unknown function is affected. Pathological variants in the CLN8 gene were associated with two different phenotypes: variant late-infantile in individuals from many countries worldwide, and epilepsy progressive with mental retardation, appearing in Finnish and Turkish subjects.

[Treatment of refractory aggressiveness by amygdalotomy and posteromedial hypothalamotomy by radiofrequency].

Rev Neurol 2019 Feb;68(3):91-98

Hospital General de Mexico OD, Cuauhtemoc, Mexico.

Introduction: Since, under certain circumstances, defensive or attacking behaviours display a pattern of motor dominance, as observed in subjects who participate in contact or fighting sports, aggressive behaviour was considered to have a dominant motor pattern. With the aim of preventing the functional problems reported with bilateral lesion procedures involving both the central nucleus of the amygdala and the posteromedial hypothalamus, the decision was made to combine them; thus, an amygdalotomy of the central nucleus of the amygdala and a posteromedial hypothalamotomy were to be performed simultaneously and unilaterally, on the basis of the motor dominance of the patient determined by means of the Edinburgh test.

Patients And Methods: This study describes the surgical experience in a series of nine patients diagnosed with refractory neuroaggressive syndrome. Read More
