Of note, although detailed investigations for stroke etiology were conducted before making the diagnosis of cryptogenic
stroke; genetic investigations for CADASIL, which is the most common monogenic disorder causing lacunar stroke and cerebral small vessel disease, was not performed.
PFO, defined in the autopsy studies of Julius Cohnheim in 1877 as an unusual route for thromboembolism (22) was considered to be a rare condition until two observational studies in 1988 (23,24) in which the prevalence of PFO was found to be higher in patients with cryptogenic
stroke at a young age (40-50% vs 10-15%, p<0.001).

FRIDAY, July 27, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- For patients younger than 60 years who have had a cryptogenic
ischemic stroke thought to be secondary to patent foramen ovale (PFO), who are open to all treatment options, PFO closure plus antiplatelet therapy is recommended over antiplatelet therapy alone, according to a clinical practice guideline published online July 25 in The BMJ.
11In some ischemic stroke cases, the cause is unknown (cryptogenic
Among three patients who were diagnosed to have OP, two actually had cryptogenic
organizing pneumonia (COP) and one had OP as a pulmonary manifestation of underlying rheumatoid arthritis (Figure 1).
In our study, Cryptogenic
was the most common aetiology of liver abscess (Amoebic and Pyogenic).
If the findings of medical examinations do not reveal the cause of liver scarring, this type of liver disease is called cryptogenic
When none of these mechanisms are found, pyogenic liver abscesses are considered cryptogenic
(no obvious cause); such abscesses account for -20% of cases in industrialized countries (9-12).
