    Ophthalmoplegia without ataxia, areflexia or both has been designated as atypical Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) or acute ophthalmoplegia (AO). This entity, first reported by Chiba et al. is associated with anti-GQ1b IgG antibodies.We report a patient with isolated acute ophthalmoplegia with high...

    Objective. Immunoglobulin-G4-(IgG4-) related disease (IgG4 RD) is a fibrosing process characterized by a significant infiltration of IgG4-secreting plasma cells. IgG4 RD can affect almost all organs including salivary glands. Whether IgG4 RD plays a role in the development of sicca syndrome and...

    The article presents case studies of two patients including 35-year-old woman with dysarthria and gait disorder and a 54-year-old woman with brainstem syndrome. They were diagnosed with postinfectious brainstem syndromes and studied for clinical evaluation of atypical Bickerstaff brainstem...

    BACKGROUND: Ataxic Guillain–Barré syndrome is characterised by profound ataxia with negative Romberg sign and no ophthalmoplegia. Its nosological relationship to acute sensory ataxic neuropathy has yet to be discussed. METHODS: Medical records were reviewed of patients suffering acute...

    Background: Serum antibodies to GQ1b are associated with Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) and Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) with ophthalmoplegia. Antibodies to ganglioside complexes (GSCs) have not yet been examined in a large population of patients with MFS or GBS. This study aimed to determine...

    Miller Fisher syndrome classically presents with ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. The syndrome may present rarely with atypical clinical features. Whether the central or peripheral nervous system is primarily involved remains controversial. Miller Fisher syndrome usually follows an...

    Neuromyelitis optica (NMO or Devic's syndrome) is a rare autoimmune disease, previously considered a multiple sclerosis variant. The most important laboratory and clinical features are optic myelitis and transverse myelitis, associated with neuromyelitis optica-IgG antibody (NMO-IgG) positivity....

    This study was aimed to evaluate the seroprevalence of parvovirus B19 in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome (FS). Seventy-five patients with FS (44.3 ± 8.3) and 75 healthy controls (44.2 ± 8.1) were evaluated. Serum anti-B19 IgM and IgG antibodies were measured by ELISA technique....

    The pharyngeal-cervical-brachial (PCB) variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome is defined by rapidly progressive oropharyngeal and cervicobrachial weakness associated with areflexia in the upper limbs. Serial nerve conduction studies suggest that PCB represents a localised subtype of...

    Background. It is known that a predominant glomerular deposition of IgG4 is characteristic of idiopathic membranous nephropathy (MN) and that significant deposition of other IgG subclasses is also observed in lupus MN. However, there is no report focusing on the distribution of glomerular IgG...
