This article describes seven Colombian individuals with clinical, paraclinical
and molecular diagnosis of PMD, through phenotype and gene variant characterization.
The use of paraclinical
methods at admission would have allowed us to make a more accurate diagnosis and perform an early intensive rehabilitation treatment, including the cognitive one, maybe with better functional outcomes.
N-methyl-D-aspartate antibody encephalitis: Temporal progression of clinical and paraclinical
observations in a predominantly non-paraneoplastic disorder of both sexes.
The purpose of this report was to illustrate the clinical and paraclinical
features of a patient with bilateral diffuse and cluster PED in association of diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis (DPGN).
Oligoclonal bands and an increased IgG index in CSF have been found as risk factors when combined with other paraclinical
and radiological findings.
Clinical and paraclinical
parameters were collected before heart transplant, at the time of hospital discharge and at each outpatient visit in the transplant clinic for at least 3 years.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is heterogeneous in terms of disease prevalence, clinical and paraclinical
characteristics in different regions, and ethnicities in the world [1-4].
The clinical and paraclinical
data of our patients were grouped in Table 1.
measures, including blood sampling for the required tests and appropriate imaging methods, were taken.
Although several clinical and paraclinical
diagnostic and assessment tools including the modified LS skin severity index (mLoSSI), the localized scleroderma cutaneous assessment tool (LoSCAT), ultrasonography (US), elastography, and skin biopsy have been documented, all of them have some limitations; for example, only a limited subset of the clinical parameters is evaluated by each mLoSSI and LoSCAT, or elastography is so hard to perform, US is usually not so helpful on the scalp/face due to a thin tissue, and finally no one really wants to biopsy the face.
