    The article presents a study that associates human T-cell leukemia virus type I (HTLV-I) with myelopathy in Japan. It suggests HTLV-I as a cause of spastic paraparesis (TSP) because the country is one of the most endemic areas in the world for adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATLL). A subgroup of...

    Although brain lesions have been described in some cases with HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP), little is known about the nature of brain lesion and its relation to the spinal cord lesion. In the present study, we performed histopathological analysis of the...

    Infection with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) have been associated with the development of the HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/Tropical Spastic Paraparesis (HAM/TSP). The disease affects the pyramidal tract at the distal segments of spinal cord, generating a spastic paraparesis. We...

    Human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I)-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) is a slowly progressive, inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (CNS). We report a patient with transverse myelitis, who exhibited acute onset and rapid progression of the disease...

    To investigate the pathogenesis of HTLV-I associated diseases, we established a rat model for HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) in WKAH rats. In the spinal cords of WKAH rats carrying HTLV-I, chronological histopathology revealed the occurrence of apoptotic cell...

    Objectives: To investigate the use of root mean square displacement (RMSD) and mean diffusional kurtosis (DK) metrics of q-space imaging data to estimate spinal cord compression in patients with early cervical spondylosis. Methods: We studied 50 consecutive patients at our institution (22 male,...

    The article discusses operative treatment applicable to cervical spondylotic myelopathy. The author claims that early operative management of the disease is beneficial especially for patients with moderate or severe myelopathy. Also, anterior operative approaches are recommended in patients with...
