Repeat conformation heterogeneity in cerebellar ataxia, neuropathy, vestibular areflexia syndrome.

Brain 2022 Apr;145(3):1139-1150

Department of Human Genetics, Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine, Yokohama, Kanagawa 236-0004, Japan.

Cerebellar ataxia, neuropathy, vestibular areflexia syndrome (CANVAS) is a late-onset, slow-progressing multisystem neurodegenerative disorder. Biallelic AAGGG repeat expansion in RFC1 has been identified as causative of this disease, and repeat conformation heterogeneity (ACAGG repeat) was also recently implied. To molecularly characterize this disease in Japanese patients with adult-onset ataxia, we accumulated and screened 212 candidate families by an integrated approach consisting of flanking PCR, repeat-primed PCR, Southern blotting and long-read sequencing using Sequel II, GridION or PromethION.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Van Yuzuncu Yil University, Turkey.

In the present era of the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, it has been observed that the severe acute respiratory syndrome, coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection does not only affect the respiratory tract, but also triggers various neurological symptoms in one-third of patients. The most prominent of such symptoms is anosmia, which is independent of rhinologic symptoms such as nasal obstruction, discharge, and pain that cannot be otherwise explained. Vestibular neuronitis ranks third among the causes of peripheral vestibular vertigo, characterized by nausea, vomiting, and dizziness that develops within minutes or hours. Read More

Neurology 2022 04 28;98(16):678-683. Epub 2022 Feb 28.

From the Department of Neurology (K.-T.K., S.-H.B., S.-U.L., J.B.K.), Korea University Medical Center; Department of Neurology (S.-U.L., J.-S.K.), Seoul National University College of Medicine; and Dizziness Center (J.-S.K.), Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seongnam, Republic of Korea.

We describe acute vestibular syndrome in a 48-year-old woman with breast cancer who was finally found to have anti-Ma2-associated encephalitis. Although the initial diagnosis was vestibular neuritis elsewhere, progression of symptoms and additional findings of bilateral ptosis and circumlimbal injections, vertical saccadic slowing, and impaired convergence led to a suspicion of a rostral midbrain lesion and final diagnosis. The patient's symptoms and ocular motor signs improved markedly after administration of IV methylprednisolone and oral tacrolimus. Read More

L-Thyroxine Improves Vestibular Compensation in a Rat Model of Acute Peripheral Vestibulopathy: Cellular and Behavioral Aspects.

Cells 2022 02 16;11(4). Epub 2022 Feb 16.

Aix Marseille Université-CNRS, Laboratoire de Neurosciences Cognitives, LNC UMR 7291, 13331 Marseille, France.

Unilateral vestibular lesions induce a vestibular syndrome, which recovers over time due to vestibular compensation. The therapeutic effect of L-Thyroxine (L-T4) on vestibular compensation was investigated by behavioral testing and immunohistochemical analysis in a rat model of unilateral vestibular neurectomy (UVN). We demonstrated that a short-term L-T4 treatment reduced the vestibular syndrome and significantly promoted vestibular compensation. Read More
