Semiology of insular lobe seizures.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan 30. 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.

Medically treated patients suffering from tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) have less than 30% chance of achieving a sustained remission. Both the international TSC consensus conference in 2012, and the panel of European experts in 2012 and 2018 have concluded that surgery should be considered for medically refractory TSC patients. However, surgery remains currently underutilized in TSC. Read More

J M S Pearce

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

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) 2018 Nov 14. 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

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Nov 8. 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.

Non pharmacological treatment for neuropathic pain: Invasive and non-invasive cortical stimulation.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan - Feb;175(1-2):51-58. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

The use of medications in chronic neuropathic pain may be limited with regard to efficacy and tolerance. Therefore, non-pharmacological approaches, using electrical stimulation of the cortex has been proposed as an alternative. First, in the early nineties, surgically-implanted epidural motor cortex stimulation (EMCS) was proven to be effective to relieve refractory neuropathic pain. Read More

Epilepsy surgery: A therapeutic patient education program.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Dec 6;174(10):726-730. Epub 2018 Oct 6.

Service de neurologie fonctionnelle et d'épileptologie, hôpital neurologique Pierre-Wertheimer, hospices civils de Lyon, 69677 Lyon, France; Inserm U1028, CNRS 5292, UCBL-1, centre de recherche en neurosciences, 69000 Lyon, France.

Before the creation of a therapeutic patient education (TPE) program for epilepsy surgery, a needs analysis was conducted with 29 people, including patients (n=13), family members (n=9) and healthcare providers (n=7). Most of them highlighted the psychological difficulties of the surgical process, and the need for considerably more precise information concerning the immediate postoperative period. In addition, several patients and/or family members requested meeting with a patient who had undergone the surgery. Read More

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan - Feb;175(1-2):65-72. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Neurology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical College, 325000 Wenzhou, China. Electronic address:

Background: This study aimed to determine the clinical efficacy and effects of tacrolimus in treating myasthenia gravis (MG).

Methods: A total of 45 outpatients and inpatients were divided into a tacrolimus group (n=15) and non-tacrolimus group (n=30): those in the former group were treated with 3mg/day of tacrolimus for 24 weeks, while those in the latter (control) group took other immunosuppressants (prednisone, azathioprine combined with prednisone). Each group was evaluated at weeks 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 by Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America Quantitative Myasthenia Gravis (MGFA-QMG) Test, activities of daily living (ADL) profiles, and manual muscle (MMT) and fatigue tests.

Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibodies in neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Dec 4;174(10):675-679. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Neurology, Louis-Pasteur Hospital, 39, avenue de la Liberté, 68024 Colmar, France.

Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is a severe inflammatory disease of the central nervous system characterized, in particular, by disabling episodes of optic neuritis and longitudinal extensive transverse myelitis. Its main pathogenic characteristic is the presence of anti-aquaporin-4 antibodies (AQP4-Abs) in the serum of affected patients. However, a proportion of patients with the typical NMOSD phenotype are, in fact, negative (seronegative) for AQP4-Abs and, within this category of patients, a proportion of them instead express antibodies to myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG-Abs).

New findings in facial-onset sensory and motor neuronopathy (FOSMN) syndrome.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Oct 4. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

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

Facial-onset sensory and motor neuronopathy (FOSMN) syndrome represents a rare, slowly progressive, lower motor neuron disease with sensory compromise, involving mainly the face, bulbar region and upper limbs. However, non-motor symptoms and neurogenetic studies have rarely been evaluated in large case series. In the present study, 10 unrelated Brazilian patients with FOSMN syndrome underwent extensive clinical, laboratory, neurophysiological and neurogenetic assessment. Read More

Inflammatory demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system in Niger.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Sep 27. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Service de médecine interne et spécialités médicales, Hôpital National de Niamey, BP 238, Niamey, Niger; Faculté des sciences de la santé, Université Abdou Moumouni de Niamey, Niamey, Niger.

Background: In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), few studies have been reported on inflammatory demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) seems to be the most frequent inflammatory demyelinating disease of CNS in sub-Saharan Africans or people of sub-Saharan African descent.

Methods: We report the observations of seven patients from Niger diagnosed with inflammatory demyelinating diseases of CNS over a period of 21 years (1996-2017). Read More

The hidden face of Wilson's disease.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2018 Nov 21;174(9):589-596. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

National Reference Centre for Wilson Disease and other rare diseases due to copper anomalies, Department of Neurology, Lariboisière University Hospital, Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, 2, rue Ambroise-Paré, 75010 Paris, France.

In brief, the classic form of Wilson's disease (WD) is an autosomal-recessive condition with hepatic, neurologic, psychiatric and systemic manifestations. However, the diagnosis should not be excluded because of a family history consistent with autosomal-dominant transmission. The latest next-generation sequencing (NGS) studies have demonstrated a gap between phenotype and genetic prevalences, and also suggest that WD may still be underdiagnosed. Read More
