Molecular dissection of a contiguous gene syndrome: Frequent submicroscopic deletions, evolutionarily conserved sequences, and a hypomethylated island in the Miller-Dieker chromosome region.

The Miller-Dieker syndrome MDScomposed of characteristic facial abnormalities and a severe neuronal migration disorder affecting the cerebral cortex, is caused by visible or submicroscopic deletions of chromosome band 17p Twelve anonymous DNA markers were tested against a panel of somatic cell hybrids containing 17p deletions from seven MDS patients.

All patients, including three with normal karyotypes, are deleted for a variable set of markers. Cosmid clones containing both VNTR sequences were identified, and restriction mapping showed them to be kb were completely deleted in all patients, providing a minimum estimate of the size of the MDS critical region.

A hypomethylated island and variedar conserved sequences were identified within this kb region, indications of the presence of one or more expressed sequences potentially involved in the pathophysiology of this disorder.

The conserved sequences were mapped to mouse chromosome 11 by using mouse-rat somatic cell hybrids, extending the remarkable homology between human chromosome 17 and mouse chromosome 11 by 30 centimorgans, into the 17p telomere region. A new microduplication syndrome mliler the region of the Miller-Dieker 17p13 deletion syndrome.

The use fishre array comparative genome hybridisation CGH analyses for investigation of children with mental retardation has led to the identification of a growing number of new microdeletion and microduplication syndromessome of which have become clinically well characterised and som Diagnostic yield by supplementing prenatal metaphase karyotyping with MLPA for microdeletion syndromes and subtelomere imbalances.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy associated with Miller -Fisher syndrome. Physical exam was remarkable for areflexia, and ptosis. EMG nerve conduction study showed severely decreased conduction velocity and prolonged distal latency in all nerves consistent with demyelinating disease.

She was treated with 5days of intravenous immunoglobulin therapy to which she showed significant improvement in strength in her lower extremities. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a rare complication of Miller -Fisher syndrome and literature review did not reveal any cases.

Miller -Fisher syndrome is an autoimmune process that affects the peripheral nervous system causing autonomic dysfunction which may involve the heart. Due to significant autonomic dysfunction in Miller -Fisher syndrome fishdr, it could lead to arrhythmias, blood pressure changes, acute coronary syndrome and myocarditis, Takotsubo cardiomyopathy can be difficult to distinguish. The treatment of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is supportive with beta-blockers and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors are recommended until left ventricle ejection fraction improvement.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a rare complication during the acute phase of Miller -Fisher syndrome and must be distinguished from autonomic dysfunction as millr diagnoses have different approaches to treatment. Published by Elsevier Inc. Male, 32 Final Diagnosis: Miller Fisher syndrome Symptoms: Rare co-existance of disease or pathology Background: Miller Fisher Syndrome is characterized by the clinical triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia, and is considered to be a variant of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Miller Fisher Syndrome is observed in approximately 1? Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available A year-old woman presented with double varidead that she had experienced since an infection 2 weeks previously. A neurological examination showed limited bilateral eye abduction, mimicking Miller Fisher syndrome. However, T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging of her brain revealed hyperintense areas in the mioler of the pons, garre the abducens nucleus, and her serum anti-aquaporin-4 antibody test was positive.


She was finally diagnosed with neuromyelitis guillainn. Intravenous high-dose steroid therapy immediately improved the patient’s abduction palsy, but bilateral optic neuritis manifested during the treatment.

Subsequent treatment with plasma exchange improved her optic neuritis symptoms. Patients with Miller Fisher Syndrome usually have good recovery without residual deficits. Venous thromboembolism is a common complication fishet Guillain-Barre Syndrome and has also been reported in Miller Fisher Syndromebut it has generally been reported in the presence of at least one prothrombotic risk factor such as immobility.

A direct correlation between venous thromboembolism and Miller Fisher Syndrome or Guillain-Barre Syndrome has not been previously described.

CASE REPORT We report the case of a year-old Hispanic male who presented with acute, severe thromboembolic disease and concurrently demonstrated characteristic clinical features of Miller Fisher Syndrome including ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia.

Past medical and family history were negative for thromboembolic disease, and subsequent hypercoagulability workup was unremarkable. During the course of hospitalization, the patient also developed angioedema. Campylobacter jejuni and Haemophilus influenzae are frequently reported etiological agents.

We describe a boy with Miller Fisher syndrome following EpsteinDBarr virus primary infectious mononucleosis. He presented with bilateral imller of several cranial nerves and hyporeflexia of the limbs but without ataxia. Miller Fisher syndrome was confirmed by the presence of anti-GQ1b antibodies in a blood sample.

Epstein-Barr virus was identified by polymerase chain reaction and serology. Epstein-Barr virus should be considered as a Miller Fisher syndrome ‘s causative agent.

The physiopathology of this condition may involve cross-reactive T-cells against Epstein-Barr virus antigens and gangliosides. Nous rapportons un cas de syndrome de Miller Fisher survenu chez vriedad Cerebellar and pontine tegmental hypermetabolism in miller -fisher syndrome. Unlike GBS, presence of cerebellar type ataxia and supranuclear ophthalmioplesia in MFS suggests additional involvement of the central nervous system.

Nine patients who were diagnosed as MFS based on acute ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia without other identifiable causes participated in this study. With the interval of 25 26 days range: In group analysis comparing with healthy controls, FDG PET of patients revealed increased metabolism in the bilateral cerebellar hemispheres and vermis, and the thalamus.

In contrast, the occipital cortex showed decreased metabolism. Individual analyses disclosed hypermetabolism in the cerebellar vermis or hemispheres in 5, and in the pontine tegmentum in 2 of the 9 patients. We also found that the cerebellar vermian hypermetabolism was inversely correlated with the interval between from the symptom guillai set to PET study.

Moreover, follow-up PET of a patient demonstrated that cerebellar hypermetabolism decreased markedly with an improvement of the ophthalmoplegia and ataxia. These findings indicate an involvement of the central nervous system in MFS and suggest an antibody-associated acute inflammatory process as a mechanism of this disorder.

Symptoms and signs were less severe during relapses than during the initial episode in recurrent patients. Here, we report a year-old female patient who presented with the guilllain clinical features of MFS. Workup revealed antibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase GAD in relatively high titers while GQ1b antibodies were negative.


vairedad Neurological improvement was observed after intravenous gamma globulin and follow-up examinations showed a continuous clinical amelioration with simultaneous decline varisdad anti-GAD levels which finally returned to normal values. This case indicates that anti-GAD antibodies may be associated with a broader clinical spectrum and future studies in GQ1b-seronegative patients could determine ultimately their clinical and pathogenetic significance in this syndrome. Full Text Available Background: Miller -Fisher syndrome MFS is characterized by gait ataxia, external ophtalmoplegia and areflexia and thought as an uncommon variant of Guillain Barre syndrome.

In MFS mioler, spontaneous improvement was observed in the first 3 months and these improvements were started by the 2nd vagiedad. This case was referred to physiotherapy and rehabilitation program at the 4th week since the appropriate medical treatments were unsuccessful after the attack.

The patient was evaluated generally before physiotherapy program, and muscle length, strength loss, deep tendon reflexes, postural impairments and daily difficult activities and positions were assessed.

Treatment program was adjusted according to the patient and changes during treatment period were observed. Physiotherapy program included classical physiotherapy methods: After the treatment, lower extremity muscle shortness decreased and muscle strength, standing on one foot duration, independent walk speed increased in time. Before treatment, he could not climbing upstairs, but it was achieved 1 year after the treatment.

The case improved with physiotherapy bwrre rehabilitation program gradually with years. In the treatment of MFS patients, physiotherapy and rehabilitation being part of the treatment will be useful.

Electrophysiological evidence of cerebellar fiber system involvement in the Miller Fisher syndrome. Transcranial magnetic stimulation TMS over the cerebellum is known to interfere transiently with normal function.

In this study, we utilized a previously described TMS protocol over the cerebellum in combination with ballistic movements to investigate cerebellar dysfunction in MFS patients. The agonist biceps reaction time in MFS patients during a motor cancellation task was not significantly reduced during the initial TMS study.

However, during the repeat TMS study, significant reduction was seen for all patients, in tandem with clinical recovery. There was significant correlation between anti-GQ1b IgG titers and change in agonist reaction time between the initial and repeat TMS studies. TMS likely affected horizontally orientated parallel fibers in the cerebellar molecular layer.

During disease onset, antibody binding may have interfered with facilitation of reaction time during motor cancellation tasks seen in normal subjects. Normalization of reaction time facilitation corresponded to resolution guillaiin antibody-mediated interference in the molecular layer.

Our study has provided evidence suggesting parallel fiber involvement in MFS, and suggested a role of anti-GQ1b IgG antibody in these changes.

Full Text Available A year-old man presented with a 3-day history of progressive tingling of the hands, unsteadiness, and diplopia. Overlapping cases of MFS and BBE are well described, and because the same antibody is often found in both conditions, it is thought that they share a common autoimmune mechanism. BBE has also been previously reported in association with GBS lending support that it also lies on the same spectrum.
