BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Whereas rare cases of hemispatial visual neglect have been reported in patients with a neurodegenerative disease, quadrantic visuospatial neglect has not been described. We report a patient with probable posterior cortical atrophy who demonstrated lower right-sided quadrantic visuospatial neglect, together with allocentric vertical neglect. METHODS/RESULTS: A 68-year-old man initially noted deficits in reading and writing. Subsequently, he developed other cognitive deficit...

Objective: We seek to characterize the clinical symptoms and describe the treatment paradigm of a rare case of autoimmune encephalitis secondary to neuronal ganglionic acetylcholine receptor autoimmunity. Background: Autoimmune encephalopathy can be used to describe a range of neuropsychiatric disorders in which autoantibodies are directed against central nervous system targets. While nicotinic ganglionic acetylcholine receptor autoimmunity has been commonly reported in dysautonomia and peripher...
: Mixed transcortical aphasia (MTA) is characterized by decreased spontaneous speech, impaired naming, and poor comprehension, but with intact repetition. MTA has been reported to be the sequela of left hemisphere watershed infarction that isolates Wernicke's perisylvian arc. We report a 55-year-old right-handed woman who began having word-finding difficulty and then gradually developed impaired spontaneous speech, comprehension, and naming, but with intact repetition. Magnetic resonance imaging...

Objective: To describe a novel case of mixed transcortical aphasia in association with neurodegenerative disease. Background: Mixed transcortical aphasia is a rare speech disorder characterized by reduced spontaneous speech and decreased comprehension with intact repetition. This type of aphasia has been seen previously in patients with brain infarction, particularly with ischemia of watershed areas which isolate Broca’s area, Wernicke’s areas, and the arcuate fasciculus from rest of the brain. ...

Objective: To describe a rare case of hypothyroidism presenting with dysarthria and extremity weakness. Background: Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect the central and peripheral nervous systems causing a range of neurological symptoms. This report demonstrates the importance of evaluating for hypothyroidism in patients presenting with dysarthria and extremity weakness. Design/Methods: A case report. Results: The patient was a 56 year-old right-handed male with carotid stenosis, hypothyroidis...

OBJECTIVE: To describe an unusual case of thiamine deficiency presenting as acute Wernicke’s syndrome, for which a stroke alert was activated. BACKGROUND: This report demonstrates the importance of evaluating for Wernicke’s syndrome in the acute onset of brainstem symptoms, particularly as symptoms may be reversible following administration of thiamine. DESIGN/METHODS: A case report RESULTS: A 14 year-old male with acute lymphocytic leukemia without known central nervous system involvement, bone...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a rare presentation of prion disease presenting as new onset non-convulsive status epilepticus. DESIGN/METHODS: A case report. BACKGROUND: This report highlights the importance of considering prion disease in new-onset non-convulsive status epilepticus. RESULTS: A 71 year-old woman with a recent diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease after a six-month progressive history of impulsivity and perseveration was found acutely unresponsive. EMS was called, and an acute stroke alert ac...

Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) is a rare, fatal prion disease resulting from transmission to humans of the infectious agent of bovine spongiform encephalopathy. We describe the clinical presentation of a recent case of vCJD in the United States and provide an update on diagnostic testing. The location of this patient’s exposure is less clear than those in the 3 previously reported US cases, but strong evidence indicates that exposure to contaminated beef occurred outside the United Sta...
