Sinopsis

The essential point of Practical Neurology is that it is practical in the sense of being useful for everyone who sees neurological patients and who wants to keep up to date, and safe, in managing them. In other words this is a journal for jobbing neurologists who plough through the tension headaches and funny turns week in and week out.Practical Neurology is included as part of a subscription to JNNP and provided in print to all members of the Association of British Neurologists

    Infectious encephalitis: mimics and chameleons

    16/05/2019 Duración: 19min

    ‘Query encephalitis’ is a common neurological consultation in hospitalised patients. Identifying the syndrome is only part of the puzzle. Although historically encephalitis has been almost synonymous with infection, we increasingly recognise parainfectious or postinfectious as well as other immune-mediated causes. Encephalitis must also be distinguished from other causes of encephalopathy, including systemic infection, metabolic derangements, toxins, inherited metabolic disorders, hypoxia, trauma and vasculopathies. The paper discussed in this podcast reviews the most important differential diagnoses (mimics) of patients presenting with an encephalitic syndrome and highlight some unusual presentations (chameleons) of infectious encephalitis. Listen to the conversation of Dr Tom Hughes, Practical Neurology Associate Editor, with Dr Nicholas Davies (Department of Neurology, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, UK) and read the paper on the Practical Neurology website: http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/practneurol-

  • Cannabis licensing and epilepsy: addressing the challenges for doctors and patients

    Cannabis licensing and epilepsy: addressing the challenges for doctors and patients

    14/11/2018 Duración: 15min

    What do adult neurologists need to know ahead of the likely licensing of Epidiolex for epilepsy in the UK in 2019? It is quite possible that cannabidiol, currently licensed in the USA for treating rare genetic epilepsies, may open the door for the widespread legalisation of recreational cannabis. Dr Rhys Thomas (Neurologist at the Institute of Neuroscience, Newcastle University, UK) tells fellow Practical Neurology Associate Editor Dr Tom Hughes why the arguments about who may benefit from cannabis-derived medicines have to be separate from the discussion about the legalisation of recreational cannabis. They also discuss the distinction between cannabidiol oils and the cannabidiol rigorously tested in clinical trials. Read the review on the Practical Neurology website - https://pn.bmj.com/content/early/2018/10/18/practneurol-2018-002058 - and on the journal's December 2018 issue.

  • Valproate contraindicated in pregnancy: new regulations and advice for neurologists

    Valproate contraindicated in pregnancy: new regulations and advice for neurologists

    19/04/2018 Duración: 10min

    Valproate is now contraindicated in pregnancy and women of child-bearing potential. The new stipulations from the Coordination Group for Mutual Recognition and Decentralised Procedures-Human (CMDh), a regulatory body representing European Union member states, about the use of valproate in women of child-bearing potential states that “Valproate should never be started unless alternative treatments are not suitable”. However, people taking this drug used to treat epilepsy should not stop valproate use abruptly, without consulting their doctor. The new regulations are discussed in this podcast by Professor Sanjay Sisodiya (UCL Institute of Neurology, London), who’s the author of a Practical Neurology editorial on this subject (http://pn.bmj.com/content/early/2018/04/19/practneurol-2018-001955).
