This document is currently not available here. Spinal tap was also done which revealed the presence of oligoclonal bands in CSF. Damage to axonal ion homeostasis, leads to calcium influx, which is proinflammatory and neurotoxic.
Develop a risk mitigation strategy to reduce adverse effects associated with disease modifying therapies. The repetitive process of demyelination and remyelination leads to scarring and plaque formation, characteristic of this disease process Cross, A. Passage is facilitated by integrins, which are expressed by activated T cells, allowing the adhesion and passage of immune cells through the BBB.
She came to Neurology Clinic for evaluation of her long-term neurologic complaints. Children, especially those with ADEM, should be monitored closely for other transient neurological symptoms, such as blurry vision or episodes of dizziness that resolve on their own.
Cranial Nerve II - disks are sharp and of normal color. This occurs in all stages of the disease and develops in both the white and grey matter. Update on Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, and Clinical Presentation by Rachel on July 26, Very well laid out, easy to follow along with and understand a "difficult" topic.
