Painless legs and moving toes is an unusual syndrome, which has not previously been reported as an initial presentation of ischemic stroke. We encountered a 78-year-old woman who developed dysarthria and involuntary movement of her left toes that was clinically regarded as painless legs and moving toes. These symptoms appeared abruptly and simultaneously as the initial symptoms of stroke, and improved gradually with conservative management by intravenous hydration for a month. We suggest that, in our case, a cortical brain lesion caused by ischemic stroke might be associated with the development of painless legs and moving toes.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Transcranial sonography (TCS) is potentially useful for the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD). It is attractive because it is non-invasive, easily accessible and low risk test. So far, up to twenties of TCS studies in Parkinson’s disease and parkinsonism have been reported. However, studies on TCS have been restricted to European populations and no such study has been performed in Asian especially Korean population. To investigate the efficacy of TCS in Korean PD patients and its correlation with the clinical features, we carried out midbrain TCS in PD patients and normal controls, and evaluated the area of the substantia nigra (SN) hyperechogenicity and its ratio to the area of the whole m idbrain. According to our study, we could conclude that midbrain TCS is an effective diagnostic tool for detecting PD in the Korean population. In this review, we additionally summarized clinical application of TCS in differential diagnosis of atypical parkinsonism as well as restless leg syndrome and depression.
