Cerebroretinal microangiopathy with calcifications and cysts

Neurology

Sep 1, 2006

Tarja LinnankiviHelena Pihko

Abstract

Extensive cerebral calcifications and leukoencephalopathy have been reported in two rare disorders Coats plus and leukoencephalopathy with calcifications and cysts. In the latter, a progressive formation of parenchymal brain cysts is a special feature, whereas Coats plus is characterize...read more

Cerebrovascular Disease

Cerebrovascular disease is an important cause of cognitive impairment and dementia in elderly patients. Discover the latest research on cerebrovascular disease here.

Ataxias

Ataxia is a neurological condition characterized by lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements including loss of coordination, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on ataxia here.

Neonatal Seizures

Neonatal seizures are the most common neurological emergency in the neonatal period and are associated with a poor long-term outcome. Discover the latest research on neonatal seizures here.

Microscopic Polyangiitis

Microscopic polyangiitis is a primary systemic vasculitis of small- and some medium-sized vessels. It is characterized by a tropism for kidneys and lungs, positive association with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), and a paucity of immunoglobulin deposits in vessel walls. Discover the latest research on microscopic polyangiitis here.

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.
