    Reversible conduction failure in overlap of Miller Fisher syndrome and pharyngeal-cervical-brachial variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome in the spectrum of nodo-paranodopathies
    (2014-07-01) Gursoy, AZİZE ESRA; Kolukisa, MEHMET; ALTINTAS, Ozge; YAMAN, Asli; Asil, TALİP; GÜRSOY, AZIZE ESRA; KOLUKISA, MEHMET; BABACAN YILDIZ, GÜLSEN; ASİL, TALIP
    Patients with an overlap of the pharyngeal-cervical-brachial variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome and Miller Fisher syndrome (PCB/MFS) have rarely been reported. The electrophysiological findings in PCB/MFS are of great interest and may provide insight into the pathophysiology of the disorder. We report the clinical features and nerve conduction study findings in a patient with PCB/MFS with high titers of antiganglioside antibodies against GQ1b, GD1a, and GD1b. In serial nerve conduction studies, compound muscle action potential amplitudes normalised without development of temporal dispersion within 3 weeks, and absent median, ulnar, and sural sensory nerve action potentials became recordable within 4 months. These findings are consistent with reversible conduction failure in both motor and sensory fibres, and PCB/MFS could be classified in the recently described nodo-paranodopathy spectrum of acute neuropathies associated with anti-ganglioside antibodies.

    Relationship between electrodiagnostic severity and neuropathic pain assessed by the LANSS pain scale in carpal tunnel syndrome.
    (2013-01-01T00:00:00Z) KOLUKISA, MEHMET; Gürsoy, AZİZE ESRA; YıLDıZ, GB; KOCAMAN, G; CELEBI, A; KOÇER, A; GÜRSOY, AZIZE ESRA; KOLUKISA, MEHMET; BABACAN YILDIZ, GÜLSEN
    Objective: The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between the presence of neuropathic pain assessed by the Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs (LANSS) scale and electrophysiological findings in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Methods: We studied 124 hands with idiopathic CTS with pain complaints involving hand and wrist. All hands were assessed by the LANSS with which a score of 12 or more is defined as pain dominated by neuropathic mechanisms. These hands were assigned to minimal, mild, moderate, severe, or extreme severe groups according to the results of the median nerve conduction studies. Results: A LANSS score $ 12, suggestive of pain dominated by neuropathic mechanisms, was defined in 59 (47.6%) CTS hands. Pain intensity was significantly higher in CTS hands with a LANSS score $ 12 (P , 0.001). Among electrophysiological findings, compound muscle action potential amplitude was significantly lower in hands with a LANSS score $ 12 compared with hands with a LANSS score , 12 (P = 0.020). Severity of CTS was not significantly different between LANSS $ 12 and LANSS , 12 groups. Electrophysiological severity was significantly higher in CTS hands with evoked pain (P = 0.005) and allodynia (P , 0.001) in LANSS subscore analysis. Conclusion: We suggest that the presence of pain dominated by neuropathic mechanisms in CTS is not related to electrophysiological CTS severity. Neuropathic pain should be assessed carefully in patients with CTS, and an appropriate treatment plan should be chosen, taking into account the clinical and electrophysiological findings together with the true pain classification.

    Clinical and polysomnographic features of a large Turkish pedigree with restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movements

    Restless leg syndrome (RLS) and periodic limb movements (PLMS) are common neurological diseases often associated with insomnia. A familial aggregation in RLS has been identified since it was first described; however, inheritance patterns of RLS/PLMS are poorly understood and their exact pathophysiology is not well-known. We have identified a Turkish pedigree with RLS/PLMS, which is a rare condition, in five generations of a family, including nine affected family members.
