Jules Sottas (1866-1945) forgotten despite the eponym: "Dejerine-Sottas syndrome".

Authors:
O Walusinski

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

20, rue de Chartres, 28160 Brou, France. Electronic address:

The eponym "Dejerine Sottas" makes 21st-century neurologists think of a form of heredity peripheral neuropathy leading to amyotrophy and secondary to a mutation of one of the many genes responsible for the formation of myelin. The seminal description was the work of Sottas and Jules Dejerine (1849-1917); Dejerine was the prestigious second successor of Jean-Martin Charcot at the Clinic of Nervous System Diseases at the La Salpêtrière hospital. Jules Sottas (1866-1945) has almost been forgotten, but as a young man he was a brilliant resident under Dejerine. Read More

Impaired decision-making and time perception in individuals with stroke: Behavioral and neural correlates.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Neuro-innovation Technology & Brain Mapping Laboratory, Federal University of Piauí, Parnaíba, Brazil; The Northeast Biotechnology Network, Federal University of Piauí, Teresina-PI, Brazil.

Several studies have demonstrated that stroke subjects present impairment of functions related to decision-making and timing, involving the information processing in the neural circuits of the cerebellum in association with the prefrontal cortex. This review is aimed to identify the gaps, and demonstrate a better understanding of decision-making and timing functions in the patients with stroke. Electronic literature database was searched and the findings of relevant studies were used to explore the mechanisms of decision-making and timing in patients with stroke, as well as the circuit connections in timing mediated by prefrontal cortex and cerebellum.

Transatlantic Crossings: Early neurological exchanges between USA and France.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Service de neurologie C, hospices civils de Lyon, hôpital neurologique Pierre-Wertheimer, 69677 Lyon, France; Faculté de médecine Lyon Sud Charles-Mérieux, université Claude-Bernard Lyon I, 69008 Lyon, France; CNRS UMR 52-29, centre de neurosciences cognitives Marc-Jeannerod, 69500 Lyon-Bron, France.

Transnational exchanges have existed for centuries, with both economic and cultural effects. At the end of the 18 century, in the aftermath of the French Revolution, medical education in France underwent radical innovations, prefiguring the training system now almost universally accepted. This paper presents 19 and early 20 century neurology-related exchanges between the United States (US) and Europe, particularly, Paris, which had become a major medical center and where many US neurologists were trained.

Atypical Motor Neuron Disease variants: Still a diagnostic challenge in Neurology.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Apr 4;175(4):221-232. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Division of Neuromuscular Diseases, Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP), Rua Estado de Israel, 899, 04022-002 Vila Clementino, São Paulo SP, Brazil.

Motor neuron disease (MND) represents a wide and heterogeneous expanding group of disorders involving the upper or lower motor neurons, mainly represented by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), primary lateral sclerosis, progressive muscular atrophy and progressive bulbar palsy. Primary motor neuronopathies are characterized by progressive degenerative loss of anterior horn cell motoneurons (lower motor neurons) or loss of giant pyramidal Betz cells (upper motor neurons). Despite its well-known natural history, pathophysiological and clinical characteristics for the most common MND, atypical clinical presentation and neurodegenerative mechanisms are commonly observed in rare clinical entities, so-called atypical variants of MND-ALS, including flail-leg syndrome, flail-arm syndrome, facial-onset sensory and motor neuronopathy (FOSMN), finger extension weakness and downbeat nystagmus (FEWDON-MND) and long-lasting and juvenile MND-ALS.

Malformations of cortical development: The role of 7-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging in diagnosis.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 1;175(3):157-162. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Aix-Marseille University, CNRS, CRMBM, 13385 Marseille, France; AP-HM, University Hospital Timone, CEMEREM, 13385 Marseille, France.

Comparison studies between 7T and 1.5 or 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have demonstrated the added value of ultra-high field (UHF) MRI to better identify, delineate and characterize malformations of cortical development (MCD), and to disambiguate doubtful findings observed at lower field strengths. High resolution structural sequences such as magnetization prepared two rapid acquisition gradient echoes (MP2RAGE), fluid and white matter suppression MP2RAGE (FLAWS), and susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) appear to be key to the improvement of MCD diagnosis in clinical practice.

Functional mapping of the human insula: Data from electrical stimulations.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 1;175(3):150-156. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Inserm U 1028, CNRS UMR, Team "Central Integration of Pain", Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, 5292 Lyon, France; Functional Neurology and Epilepsy Department, Neurological Hospital, Hospices Civils de Lyon, 69677 Lyon, France; Claude Bernard University Lyon 1, 69622 Villeurbanne, France.

Electrical stimulations of the insula performed during stereo-electro-encephalography (SEEG) reproduce the ictal symptoms observed during the development of insular seizures and are also a unique opportunity to provide a functional mapping of the insular cortex. We provide here a functional mapping of the insular cortex obtained by electrical stimulation, based on our previous work and a review of literature. The most frequent responses to insula stimulation were somatosensory sensations followed by visceral responses. Read More

Attention disorders in adults with epilepsy. Determinants and therapeutic strategies.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 28;175(3):135-140. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Epileptology unit, neurology department, Nancy hospital, 29, avenue du Maréchal-de-Lattre-de-Tassigny, 54035 Nancy, France; UMR 7039, CNRS, université de Lorraine, 54500 Nancy, France; Reference, Center for rare Epilepsies, Nancy hospital, 29, avenue du Maréchal-de-Lattre-de-Tassigny, 54035 Nancy, France.

Cognitive consequences in epilepsy are often described in the following domains: verbal memory, language, executive functions, and attention. Attention is involved in all cognitive activities, and attention disorders (AD) are reported in patients with various neurological diseases. This paper proposes to define the concept of AD and its assessment, to consider their determinants in epilepsy and potential therapies (drug or not). Read More

Malformations of cortical development: New surgical advances.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 26;175(3):183-188. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Department of Neurosurgery, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Neurology & Neurosurgery Hospital Pierre Wertheimer, 59, boulevard Pinel, 69003 Lyon, France; Faculty of medicine Claude Bernard, University of Lyon, 69003 Lyon, France; Inserm U1028, CNRS 5292, NEUROPAIN team, Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, 69003 Lyon, France.

Epilepsy related to malformations of cortical development is frequently drug resistant or requires heavy medication, therefore surgery is key in their management. The role of stereotactic surgery has recently changed the diagnosis and treatment of focal cortical dysplasias (FCD), hypothalamic hamartomas (HH) and periventricular nodular heterotopias (PNH). In HH, radiosurgery using Gammaknife leads to 60 % of seizure control and is associated with excellent neuropsychological results without significant endocrine function impairment. Read More

Semiology of insular lobe seizures.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 30;175(3):144-149. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Functional Neurology and Epileptology Department, Neurological Hospital, hospices civils de Lyon, 69003 Lyon, France; Inserm U1028, Lyon Neuroscience Research Centre, CNRS UMR5292, 69000 Lyon, France; Faculty of Medicine Claude Bernard, University of Lyon, 69000, Lyon, France.

After the early attempts of intra-operative electrocorticography and insulectomy in the 1950s, the notion of insular lobe seizures was largely forgotten for decades. It is only since the late 1990s that the recent technique of stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG) enabled preoperative diagnosis of insular origin seizures and thus gave rise to a renewed interest for this ill-defined electroclinical entity. Owing to the multiple functional roles of insula and its extensive connectivity with adjacent as well as distant brain structures, insular lobe seizures present with a combination or series of diverse subjective and objective symptoms.

Department of Neurology, Hull Royal Infirmary, 304 Beverley Road Anlaby, East Yorks, HU10 7BG, UK.

The concepts of cerebral localization were established in the early 19th century. From these arose the idea that the dominant (usually left) hemisphere mainly subserved functions of cognition and language. The "relatively retarded right hemisphere" by contrast was mute, agraphic, apraxic, and lacking generally in higher cognitive function. Read More

Staging amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A new focus on progression.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Dec 31. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Fédération des centres SLA de Tours et Limoges, Litorals, France; Centre de coordination de la filière FILSLAN, CHU Limoges, France.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a heterogenous motoneuronal neurodegenerative condition with a panel of phenotypes exhibiting different clinical patterns. Two compounds are currently available for the treatment of ALS but the majority of trials have failed to show a positive effect on prognosis. One of the explanations which could be put forward involves the way efficacy is evaluated: clinicians agree that the ALSFRS-revised scale used in all trials does not fit with highlighting a positive effect.

Electrophysiology in diagnosis and management of neuropathic pain.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan - Feb;175(1-2):26-37. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Inserm U1028, CNRS, UMR5292, central integration of pain (NeuroPain) Lab - Lyon neuroscience research center, université Claude Bernard, 69677 Bron, France; Department of Clinical Neurophysiology, Neurological Institute, Faculty of Medicine, Graduate School of Medical Science, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, 812-8582, Japan.

Electrophysiological techniques demonstrate abnormalities in somatosensory transmission, hence providing objective evidence of 'somatosensory lesion or disease' which is crucial to the diagnosis of neuropathic pain (NP). Since most instances of NP result from damage to thermo-nociceptive pathways (thin fibres and spino-thalamo-cortical systems), specific activation of these is critical to ensure diagnostic accuracy. This is currently achieved using laser pulses or contact heat stimuli, and in a near future probably also with contact cold and intra-epidermal low-intensity currents. Read More

Adult moyamoya angiopathy in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté: Epidemiology, diagnosis and management.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Apr 14;175(4):247-251. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Service de neurochirurgie, université Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, CHRU de Besançon, 25000 Besançon, France.

Introduction: Moyamoya angiopathy (MMA) is a progressive steno-occlusive disease of the distal internal carotid arteries mainly described in Asia. It induces the development of collateral vascular networks to reduce chronic cerebral hypoperfusion. Symptoms depend on the patient's age in Asia: children are at greater risk of transient or constituted ischemic events, whereas adults are more exposed to hemorrhagic stroke. Read More

Epilepsy after stroke: Definitions, problems and a practical approach for clinicians.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Mar 8;175(3):126-132. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Service de neurologie adulte, CHU Bicêtre, 78, avenue du Général Leclerc, 94270 Le Kremlin Bicêtre, France.

Stroke, whether ischemic or hemorrhagic, is the main etiology of epilepsy in the elderly. However, incidences and outcomes differ according to stroke subtype and delay of onset following the stroke. While the medical literature is extensive, it is not always consistent, and many questions still remain regarding risk factors and management of vascular epilepsy. Read More

O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome: Unmasking a rare atypical motor neuron disease.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan - Feb;175(1-2):81-86. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Division of Neuromuscular Diseases, Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP), São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Atypical motor neuron disease represents a rare heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders with clinical, genetic and neuroimaging features distinct from those of the classic spinal or bulbar-onset amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome represents an extremely rare lower motor neuronopathy with early adult-onset distal amyotrophy and weakness in the upper limbs with asymmetrical involvement. To add to the few case series and epidemiological and genetic studies describing this variant syndrome, our team here presents a series of seven unrelated Brazilian patients with O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome in a detailed review of their clinical, neuroimaging, laboratory and neurophysiological findings.

Neuropathic pain has been a very active and productive clinical research field over the last 15 years. Studies have concerned multiple aspects of these complex chronic pain syndromes including their very definition, the elaboration of new diagnostic algorithms, the development of specific tools for their screening and measurement and their epidemiology. In this review, we summarize these recent evolutions that have impacted the way these pain syndromes are conceptualized and managed both in daily practice and in the clinical research setting.
