Orofacial dyskinesia in Down's syndrome


, : Orofacial dyskinesia in Down's syndrome. British Journal of Psychiatry 157: 131-132

Of 54 patients aged 30-60 years with a diagnosis of Down's syndrome, 38 had evidence of orofacial dyskinesia, assessed using the AIMS. There was a strong relationship between the presence of such movements and the severity of mental handicap. No relationship was found between abnormal movements and age. None of the patients had previously taken neuroleptic medication.

The trapping of Cherenkov radiation by Raman solitons is an important process during supercontinuum generation and has been demonstrated as an effective way to extend the Cherenkov-radiation-based wavelength conversion toward the visible band. In...

We report on a very rare case of a supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumor in an adult, which presented with intracerebral hemorrhage, and review the relevant medical literature. A 42-year-old Caucasian man complained of a sudden headache a...
