Today I’m Tess (Real or Fake?). Is that Tess of the d’Urbervilles or maybe Tess of the Baskervilles. Yes you can see I will be doing abit of cross dressing for the calendar….isn’t it LBTQ+Dog?


MS onset following VZV infection of the eye

Like other herpes viruses (including EBV which is human herpesvirus 4), VZV is a neurotrophic virus – i.e. it has avidity for neurones. Second to EBV, VZV is the next best infectious contender for causing MS. In this well written case report the paediatricians present a case of new onset MS in a 10 year old following reactivation of herpes zoster which involved the eye. She had chickenpox...

Neurology Smology

Yesterday I made the point that dogma is not always good for science and that it creates lemmings in science. Whilst I am making myself unpopular with scientists , I may as well go the whole hog and do neurologists today. Fear not they find me irritating anyway.

The impact of sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor modulators on COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 vaccination


Whilst this may be a football chant and so is perhaps approriate as the World Cup is now in full flow, it is part of our new mantra. Whilst ProfK’s native football team has been knocked out and now will have to support his Children’s adopted team at least for a day longer. It is important that we get our clinical colleages to hear and act on this chant as AttackMS is now open for...
