Abstract

We present a case of a patient with a tumor close to the right inferior frontal gyrus. The only symptom this patient had was a disturbing dry cough. After removal of the tumor the cough disappeared immediately. Review of the literature showed that there is a control center of voluntary cough in the right inferior frontal gyrus. Our case suggests that there might be such a center, which can be affected by a tumor close to it.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
