The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic at the time of this writing has infected 233, 151 people in the UK with 33 614 deaths.1 Current UK guidance for COVID-19 virus testing states that the preferred screening/testing technique is molecular diagnosis using a real-time RT-PCR (RdRp gene) assay.2 Initial COVID-19 testing likely underestimates the number of actual COVID-19 cases in hospitals as false-negative rates have been to found to be between 10% and 30%.3 4 This could potentially impact on clinic...
Mitoxantrone has been used as induction or escalation treatment in highly-active relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Whilst effective, its use is limited by adverse events (AE). Objective To report the clinical effectiveness and AE profile following mitoxantrone in a patient cohort with RRMS over a 10-year follow-up period. Methods This retrospective study included all patients treated with mitoxantrone in the Leeds MS service between 2003 and 2015. We measured expanded disability sta...

Transient amnestic syndromes are fascinating clinical entities and there are several subtypes. Transient global amnesia (TGA) is characterised by sudden onset of anterograde amnesia with repetitive questioning, lasting less than 24 hours. The pathophysiology of TGA involves the medial temporal lobes and hippocampi. Episodes of TGA are thought to involve venous congestion with Valsalvalike activities, vascular or migrainous mechanisms. In contrast, transient epileptic amnesia manifests as brief a...

We present two cases of cerebral fat embolism. Both patients were 21-years old, male and involved in high impact road traffic collisions with no immediate neurological deficits. Patient A underwent intra-medullary nailing of right tibia/fibular fractures within 12 hours, and had external fixation for bilateral distal femoral fractures. Post-operatively, GCS was 6. Subsequent intracranial MR imaging showed widespread cerebral hypointense punctate foci on SWI (susceptibility-weighted imaging), som...
