AbstractAbstract PDF

A decreased cardiac 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (123I-MIBG) uptake has been used as a powerful tool to identify Lewy body disease, such as idiopathic parkinson’s disease (IPD). We performed cardiac 123I-MIBG scintigraphy in patient with autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism (ARJP) with parkin gene mutation (PARK2). The findings showed normal cardiac 123I-MIBG uptake. Therefore, although the clinical features of ARJP are sometimes quite similar to those of late-onset IPD, cardiac 123I-MIBG scintigraphy may be used as a valuable tool to identify patients with IPD and to distinguish them from patients with other parkinsonian syndromes.

AbstractAbstract PDF

Abnormal muscle tone, such as spasm s, rigidity, and stiffness, following acute transverse myelitis (ATM) was such a rare manifestation that hardly reported until now. We experienced a 50-year-old patient with ATM associated with Sjögren’s syndrome. Furthermore, the patients complained painful spasms and rigidity of left lower limb which begun after episode of ATM.
