1. Parkinsonian syndromes.
Match Strength: 7.784
The term parkinsonian syndromes refers to a group of disorders whose clinical features overlap those of idiopathic Parkinson's disease. The four major entities include three important neurodegenerations, multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, and corticobasal degeneration, and a lacunar cerebrovascular disorder, vascular parkinsonism. This article reviews the epidemiology, pathology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of these disorders. Publication Types: Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural, ... Read More »

2. Effect of treatment with choline alphoscerate on hippocampus microanatomy and glial reaction in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
Match Strength: 5.587
The influence of long term treatment with choline alphoscerate on microanatomy of hippocampus and glial reaction was assessed in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) used as an animal model of cerebrovascular disease. Choline alphoscerate is a cholinergic precursor, which has shown to be effective in countering cognitive symptoms in forms of dementia disorders of degenerative, vascular or combined origin. Male spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) aged 6 months and age-matched normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats were treated for 8 weeks with an oral daily dose of 100 mg/kg of choline ... Read More »

3. Hypothyroidism and cerebral infarction: a case report and literature review.
Match Strength: 5.579
Thyroid hormone has been studied in cardiovascular disease but rarely in cerebrovascular disease (CVD). Recently, hypothyroidism has been suggested to be related to risk factors such as atherosclerosis but not directly to CVD. We reported a 52-year-old woman with acute ischemic stroke, and greatly improved general conditions after thyroid hormone replacement. Hypothyroidism is reported to be one of the causes of hypertension or elevated cholesterol levels, the established risk factors of CVD. Further studies of the possible association of thyroid hormone and CVD are warranted. Thyroid hormone ... Read More »
