An association has been reported between BP and DPP-4 inhibitors. We report three cases of DPP-4 inhibitor-associated BP, with an unfavorable course in 2 patients despite discontinuation of these drugs. Therefore, clinicians should pay close attention to the clinical course of DPP-4 inhibitor-associated BP, even after withdrawal of these drugs.
Acute basilar artery occlusions (BAO) that are not quickly recanalised may leave the patient with severe motor detriment. Efficacies of current treatments remain unclear. In our case of a 47-year-old-man presenting with quadriparesis, MRI demonstrated bilateral pontine infarct. A year after mechanical thrombectomy, he was fully ambulant.
Phantom pain (PhP)is reported by patients after limb amputation due to trauma or chronic diseases. We report the case of successful PhP treatment with pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) of the femoral and sciatic nerve. (PRF) reduced the intensity of pain for one year, improving the quality of life of the patient.
A 55-year-old man with left temporo-insulo-parietal glioblastoma was admitted because of abrupt excruciating pain in right arm and ipsilateral face. EEG showed a left central frontal rhythmic activity and complains were controlled with anti-epileptic drugs. Paroxysmal pain is an unusual manifestation of focal seizures and can be the only symptom.
Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EG) can easily be misdiagnosed. We present the case of a man with abdominal pain who was EG but misdiagnosed with cholelithiasis. This case highlights the need to consider EG in the differential diagnosis of abdominal pain since a favorable result can be achieved with timely treatment.
