The findings which were different from the findings of the previous studies in PD with proven RBD are as follows: there was no significant difference in terms of predominant tremor or akinetic rigid syndrome.
There were also regional wall motion abnormalities which included hypokinetic to akinetic basal myocardial segments, akinetic apex, and hyperdynamic midventricular segments which can be visualized in Figures 2-4.
One study reported a potential correlation between hyperintense lesions in the occipital cortex on DWI and shorter time between symptom onset and akinetic mutism [38].
CJD can present with rapid cognitive decline, gait disturbance, and visual and behavioural disturbances and can progress to myoclonus and akinetic mutism [8, 10, 11, 13, 14].
She was hospitalized at the beginning of the third month of her illness and had onset of cortical blindness, myoclonus, and akinetic mutism.
Akinetic mutism is a clinical status from the bilateral lesion of nucleus caudatus or anterior cingulate gyrus.
Although lasting complications rates of hemispherectomy are very variable on this type of epilepsy surgery, the presence of contralateral homonymous hemianopsia, hemiparesis, postoperative akinetic state, hemiparesis, apathy and sometimes aggression, buccal apraxia manifesting as drooling of saliva, memory deficits and persistence of seizures are risks to be considered during the surgical act (11,12,13,14,15,38,40,46).
The right and left ventricular functions were markedly depressed, with akinetic left ventricular inferior wall.
Seizures could develop in subjects without known epilepsy secondary to drug toxicity, and their detection during sustained physical confrontations, especially if akinetic, might be quite difficult [54, 55].
Besides recording demographic data (age, sex, and level of education), disease-specific data were noted (age at onset; disease duration; the presence of motor complications; duration of fluctuation in years; type of PD, being either tremor dominant, akinetic rigid, or mixed type; and antiparkinsonian medication).
