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...

REVIEW
Edward Needham, Gwilym Webb
Liver disease is increasingly common, estimated to affect over 25% of the world's population. Failure of the liver to maintain a normal metabolic milieu leads to impaired brain function (hepatic encephalopathy), and conditions that cause liver disease can themselves predispose to neurological disease. As neurologists' involvement with the acute take increases, it is important that we are familiar with the neurological complications of liver disease, their investigation and management, and to know which other neurological diseases occur in this patient population...

Paroxysmal dysarthria ataxia syndrome presents with recurrent, brief, stereotyped events of dysarthria, limb clumsiness, unsteady gait and vertigo or dizziness that can occur in association with lesions in the midbrain. We describe a case of a woman presenting with paroxysmal dysarthria and ataxia secondary to a midbrain lesion, treated successfully with carbamazepine.

A 30-year-old woman had 5 days of visual hallucinations, nystagmus, memory impairment and mutism. On examination, she was disorientated with reduced attention span, gaze-evoked nystagmus, paratonia and abnormal frontal reflexes. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) showed 80 cells, protein 0.41 g/L and glucose 3.2 mmol/L (plasma glucose 5.0 mmol/L). MR scan of the brain showed involvement of limbic and extra-limbic regions and brainstem. Commercial cell-based assays were negative, but tissue-based assays showed neuropil staining, and cell-based assays for anti-metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) antibodies were positive in serum and CSF...

A 25-year-old woman presented with 1 year of progressive orthopnoea, initially explained as bilateral diaphragmatic paresis caused by seronegative myasthenia gravis. She required assisted ventilation and received pyridostigmine and corticosteroids. She had minimal (particularly proximal) symmetrical tetraparesis with apparent bilateral diaphragmatic weakness, but had normal sensation. Further investigation suggested an overlap myositis with shrinking lung syndrome from systemic lupus erythematosus. She improved following immunosuppression with pulse corticosteroids and rituximab, and at 3 months no longer needed bilevel positive airway pressure support...

Fertility treatment, including assisted reproductive technology (ART), is increasingly used. Sex hormones influence seizure control as well as interacting with antiseizure medications, and so the hormonal manipulation involved in fertility treatments has direct implications for people with epilepsy. Here, we summarise the various fertility treatments and consider their important influences on epilepsy care. While early observations raised concerns about seizure exacerbation associated with ART, there are limited data to guide best practice in people with epilepsy, and further research is needed...

Primary neurolymphomatosis is the direct infiltration of lymphomatous neoplastic cells into nerve roots and/or peripheral nerves. A 67-year-old man had a 24-month history of progressive and severe left lower limb neuropathic pain, ipsilateral ankle dorsiflexion weakness and gait disturbance. Gadolinium-enhanced MRI showed thickening and enhancement of the cauda equina, L5, S1 and S2 nerve roots. 18 Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography showed concordant hypermetabolism. L5 nerve root biopsy confirmed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma...

REVIEW
Caroline Kramarz, James McHugh, Alexander Rossor
Strachan's syndrome comprises a triad of optic, auditory and painful sensory peripheral neuropathy. It has been recognised since the late 19th century and is presumed to result from nutritional deficiency. Patients present acute or subacutely after a period of systemic illness, weight loss or, most commonly, dietary restriction, especially veganism, which can cause riboflavin (vitamin B2 ) and vitamin B12 deficiencies. The syndrome is more common in people who are black British and often of Jamaican descent...

Arginine:glycine amidinotransferase (AGAT) deficiency is an ultrarare disorder of creatine metabolism, presenting with developmental delay, characteristic biochemical findings and muscle weakness. Most known cases have been identified and treated in early childhood. We describe a 27-year-old woman with learning difficulties and significant myopathy who was diagnosed through genetic investigation in adulthood. Treatment with creatine (10-15 g/day) led to a significant and rapid improvement of muscle strength...
