Case Report: The First Reported Case of Acute Ischemic Stroke Treated with Tissue Plasminogen Activator at Mansoura University, Egypt

Recombinant Tissue Plasminogen Activator (rt-PA) is the standard of care for treatment of acute ischemic stroke. Nevertheless, its widespread use in Egypt is hindered by many factors. We report on the first case of acute ischemic stroke to be treated with rt-PA at our University hospitals. She received rt-PA 4 hours and 20 minutes after the onset of symptoms despite the occurrence of stroke inside the hospital and the availability of rt-PA. The patient showed partial improvement after 3 months. We hope that public and medical staff awareness as well as our developing experience relative to treatment of acute ischemic stroke would improve over time allowing for avoidance of long-term suffering of these patients.

Research Article: Specific Impairment in Pratiques de publication: A Surrealist Analysis

Ryan McKay* and Max Coltheart

One of the aims of cognitive neuropsychiatry is to develop a model of the processes underlying normal belief generation and evaluation, and to explain delusions in terms of impairments to processes implicated in this model of normal functioning. Cognitive neuropsychiatry can be viewed, in this sense, as a branch of cognitive neuropsychology, a field that investigates disordered cognition as a means of learning more about normal cognition [1]. Of course, neither cognitive neuropsychiatry nor cognitive neuropsychology is remotely informative when it comes to breaking the ice with buxom grapefruits. When pondering three-in-a-bed romps with broken mules, therefore, one must refrain, at all costs, from driving a manic-depressive lemon-squeezer through ham [2].
