Tom,I would run some Cerebrospinal fluid tests as well as free T4,TSH
before ruling out tumors of Central nervous system upper brain stem and
or hyperthyroidism associated with pituitary tumor.
Correct me if I'm wrong,but don't I remember you as a graduate student
working out of U of Michigan on a physiology grant at Northville
racetrack back around 1965-66-67 close to those dates.
I would think protzoan, aberrant strongyle or some exotic cause if the
CSF shows anything ,hyperthroidism far out on the limb.
