REVIEW

People with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease often undergo foot and ankle surgery, as foot deformities are common and cause a degree of functional limitations impairing quality of life. Surgical approaches are variable and there are no evidence-based guidelines. A multidisciplinary approach involving neurology, physical therapy and orthopaedic surgery is ideal to provide guidance on when to refer for surgical opinion and when to intervene. This review outlines the range of foot deformities associated with CMT, their clinical assessment, and their conservative and surgical and postoperative management...

Internal carotid artery atherosclerosis is a major risk factor for stroke, accounting for 15-20% of ischaemic strokes. Revascularisation procedures-either carotid endarterectomy or carotid artery stenting-can reduce the risk of stroke for those with significant (>50%) luminal stenosis but particularly for those with more severe (70-99%) stenosis. However, advances in medical pharmacotherapy have implications for the relative benefit from surgery for symptomatic carotid atherosclerosis, as well as our approach to asymptomatic disease...

In patients with ischaemic stroke, a carotid free-floating thrombus (CFFT) raises diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. We describe two women, each taking tamoxifen for invasive non-metastatic breast cancer, who developed large-vessel occlusion ischaemic strokes. The first had a CFFT 24 hours after receiving intravenous thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy; the thrombus completely resolved after 1 week of therapeutic anticoagulation. The second had a tandem occlusion with a CFFT at admission; her neurological deficits rapidly improved after intravenous thrombolysis without needing a mechanical thrombectomy...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

Glucocorticoids are commonly used for neurological disorders, but they can have significant adverse effects, including adrenal insufficiency, hyperglycaemia, osteoporosis and increased infection risk. Long-term use of corticosteroids requires the prescriber to plan risk mitigation, including monitoring and often coprescribing. This article highlights the potential risks of corticosteroid prescribing and draws together up-to-date guidance with multispecialty input to clarify ways of reducing those risks. We discuss home blood glucose monitoring and consider a steroid safety checklist to promote safer steroid prescribing...

REVIEW
Christopher J Record, Mary M Reilly
Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) has recently become the first-line genetic investigation for many suspected genetic neurological disorders. While its diagnostic capabilities are innumerable, as with any test, it has its limitations. Clinicians should be aware of where WGS is extremely reliable (detecting single-nucleotide variants), where its reliability is much improved (detecting copy number variants and small repeat expansions) and where it may miss/misinterpret a variant (large repeat expansions, balanced structural variants or low heteroplasmy mitochondrial DNA variants)...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
David Edward Hale, Stephen Reich, Dan Gold
Optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) is a reflexive eye movement in response to movement of the viewer's visual environment that consists of a slow phase eye movement in the direction of the stimulus followed by a quick phase in the opposite direction. When tested at the bedside, the slow phases represent smooth pursuit, while the quick phases represent saccades. Normally, OKN is conjugate and symmetric (horizontally and vertically). Abnormalities in the optokinetic response can provide diagnostic and localising value...

My 96-year-old aunt taught me so much about end-of-life care. As doctors dealing with long-term neurological conditions, our relationships with patients over many years should enable us to be much more involved in helping them make decisions about the ceilings of treatment.

A 57-year-old man developed worsening early morning headaches, muscle cramps and falls over 12 months. He had widespread fasciculation and was diagnosed with motor neurone disease, and treated with nocturnal hypoventilation. Based on this diagnosis, he made significant personal and financial decisions including retiring and selling his house. He subsequently developed a lump in his right breast and was found to have gynaecomastia. This triggered genetic testing for Kennedy's disease leading to the correct diagnosis...

An 18-year-old man had episodes of severe generalised dystonia, from aged 7 months and becoming progressively more frequent. He also had gradually developed interictal limb dystonia. He was initially diagnosed with paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia but he did not improve with several medications. A levodopa trial led to levodopa-induced dyskinetic movements. However, a lower titration of 25 mg of levodopa two times per day substantially improved his motor features and quality of life. Laboratory investigations and MR scans of the brain were unremarkable...
