Authors:
N Cayuela M Simo

Rev Neurol 2019 Feb;68(4):160-168

Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge, Hospitalet de Ll., Espana.

Cognitive toxicity induced by cranial radiation is one of the most important limitations of radiation therapy and has a significant impact on brain tumor survivors' quality of life. This review comprehends an up to date of recent studies including complete neuropsychological battery and/or advanced neuroimaging techniques. These studies identified critical anatomical and/or functional brain areas related to radiation-induced brain injury, thus improving clinical and radiological diagnosis. 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

Fundacion Argibide, Pamplona, Espana.

Introduction: Lafora disease is autosomal recessive progressive myoclonus epilepsy with late childhood-to teenage-onset caused by loss-of-function mutations in either EPM2A or EPM2B genes encoding laforin or malin, respectively.

Development: The main symptoms of Lafora disease, which worsen progressively, are: myoclonus, occipital seizures, generalized tonic-clonic seizures, cognitive decline, neuropsychiatric syptoms and ataxia with a fatal outcome. Pathologically, Lafora disease is characterized by the presence of polyglucosans deposits (named Lafora bodies), in the brain, liver, muscle and sweat glands. Read More

[Primary central nervous system lymphoma: clinical experience in a neurological center].

Rev Neurol 2019 Jan;68(2):59-65

Instituto Nacional de Neurologia y Neurocirugia Manuel Velasco Suarez, Mexico DF, Mexico.

Introduction: Primary lymphoma of the central nervous system is a variety of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that accounts for 4-5% of intracranial tumours and 5% of all lymphomas.

[Pathophysiology of the glutamate and the glycine transporters: new therapeutic targets].

Rev Neurol 2018 Dec;67(12):491-504

Centro de Biologia Molecular Severo Ochoa. Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Madrid, Espana.

Introduction: The amino acids glutamate and glycine, apart from their role in protein synthesis, are two fundamental neurotransmitters in the central nervous system of mammals. The first one is ubiquitous and is involved in excitatory pathways of the neocortex, the retina and the cerebellum, and the second is involved in inhibitory pathways of brain caudal areas. However, both share their way of acting by integrating into the functioning of glutamate receptors of the NMDA type fundamentals in the regulation of motor, sensory and cognitive systems. Read More
