We report neuropsychological and neuroimaging investigations performed in a patient suffering from presenile onset degenerative dementia and subsequent mild extrapyramidal and pyramidal signs. Early neuropsychological testing revealed frontal lobe dysfunction. Neuroanatomical pictures were not contributive. After four years of evolution, the clinical pattern was consistent with progressive supranuclear palsy. Statistical parametric mapping analysis of functional imaging revealed a highly significant metabolic impairment in the anterior cingulate gyrus, that might be a key feature of subcortico-frontal dementia in progressive supranuclear palsy.

The early differential diagnosis of frontal lobe dementia is particularly difficult because changes of personality or behaviour overwhelm intellectual and cognitive impairments. We report the case of a patient presenting with paranoid personality disorder who refused to collaborate in neuropsychological testing. Initial functional imaging showed frontal hypometabolism that served as an early marker of frontal lobe dysfunction. [less ▲]

We performed an open prospective study of the prophylactic efficacy of sodium valproate in 56 patients among which 35 migraineurs, 7 chronic tension-type headache patients and 14 patients with combined headaches. We compared the mean number of headache days per month during a one-month-baseline period without prophylactic treatment and during the last month of a 6-month-treatment course. Among secondary parameters, we assessed headache intensity, adverse experiences and we measured valproate blood levels after one and after six months of treatment. Sixty percent of migraineurs had a 75% or more improvement in the number of headache days under sodium valproate, most of the remaining attacks being less severe. There was no significant improvement in chronic tension-type headache patients and only a mild effect in patients with combined headaches, almost exclusively on the migraine component. Thirty percent of patients reported adverse effects of which none was serious: there were 3 drop-outs. We found a moderate, but statistically significant, correlation between efficacy and blood levels of sodium valproate. [less ▲]

The recent pathophysiological data obtained in migraine patients during and between attacks are reviewed in this article. They suggest that the headache in migraine is due to activation of the trigemino-vascular system. While this can be found in other headache disorders, the process leading ultimately to trigemino-vascular activation appears to characterize migraine. Between attacks, the migrainous brain has two functional abnormalities: a habituation defect in sensory processing, probably related to dysfunctioning transmitter (serotonin, noradrenaline) systems and a reduced mitochondrial energy reserve. Both abnormalities may be genetically determined and concur to favour biochemical shifts leading to the migraine attack as a primary protective mechanism of the brain. Such a model of migraine pathogenesis reconciles the biobehavioural and hypoxia theories and opens new therapeutic perspectives. [less ▲]

Frontal metabolism measured with positron emission tomography is shown to be decreased relatively to that in other cortical or sub-cortical areas, in a population of healthy elderly compared to young volunteers. Cortical atrophy or neuronal depopulation are unlikely to entirely explain this physiological phenomenon, and sub-cortico-cortical deactivation should play a role, analogous to that proposed in subcortical diseases.

Positron emission tomography demonstrates different abnormalities of cerebral metabolism or characteristic disturbances of neurotransmission systems in "cortical" and "subcortical" dementias. Those patterns may reflect the underlying anatomopathology, but may also give clues to the pathophysiology of a disease and its symptoms. [less ▲]

The authors describe a patient, suffering from recurring uveitis, buccal aphthous ulcers and meningo-myelitis. The diagnosis of Behcet's disease accounts for the whole clinical picture and has been confirmed by a cutaneous hypersensitivity to scratching. The authors stress the similarity between the neurological aspects of Behcet's disease and multiple sclerosis not only on the clinical side but also concerning the CSF composition (lympho-mono-plasmatocytic meningogram, increase and fractionation of gammaglobulins). The authors present a critical review of the evidence in favour of a viral aetiology. They put forward the clinical and experimental data in favour of an auto-immune aetiopathogeny. Treatment with corticosteroids associated with immunosuppressive drugs proved beneficial. [less ▲]
