[Before setout...]

Z. I.

[The first psychiatric and neurological journal in Hungary is now launched. The support of the Academy of Sciences and the Medical-Health Trade Union made it possible to make up for the omission made by the pseudo-scientific cultural policy of the reactionary period. It has already happened in the past that Hungarian medicine started to flourish. Developments in the fields of neurophysiology, neurology and psychiatry began in the second half of the last century, during which Hungarian... tovább »

[The value of newer liver function tests in cases of alcoholism chronicus ]

CSORBA Antal , LÁNG Sándor

[In mild cases of chronic alcoholism with newer liver function tests for liver damage can be detected in approx. 50%, in more severe clinical cases in 90%. In mild cases there is no globulin proliferation, in more severe cases it is most often.]

[Hydrocephalus-induced ventricular diverticulum in the cistern ambiens]

KAJTOR Ferenc, HABERLAND Katalin

[The authors report 5 cases of cerebral ventricular dysfunction developed as a result of occlusive hydrocephalus, 3 of which with one or both lateral chambers and 2 traveling with the III. chamber. Clinical, pneumographic, macroscopic, and microscopic autopsy findings and the likely mechanism of diverticulum formation are described. It is found that the detection of a significant size diverticulum by pneumography is a well-marketed diagnostic and prognostic physiologically very favorable,... tovább »

[Influence of blood glucose balance with ergotamine content (Gynergen)]

ZÁDOR Imre, KOVÁCS M. Erzsébet

[A review of the literature in recent years found no report on the effects of ergotamine (Gynergen) on blood glucose, but 20 years ago, Hetényi reported essentially similar results based on studies in two patients. He stressed that in all likelihood, Ergotamine does not delay intestinal absorption.]

[New aspects of Friedreich's disease]

LEHOCZKY Tibor, NÉMETH Jenő

[4 clinical observations of Friedreich's disease. 3 male, 1 female: three "pure" forms, one with amyotrophic lat. sclerosis. Heredofamilial trait in 3 cases: two patients had pes excavatus in the brother, the second patient had Dupuytren's contacture of the little finger. The 3rd case had a marked myocardial laesio; this was absent in the others. This therefore does not support the hypothesis that myocarditis and neurological lesions are caused by a common toxic agent.]

[Familiaris myasthenia]

CSORBA Antal

[The significantly higher prevalence of the pathology among women, menstruation, natural or artificial menopause, the undoubted influence of pregnancy, persistent thymus, etc., demonstrate the aetiological importance of endocrine factors. It is probable that the so-called constitutional factor is nothing more than an as yet unknown disorder of the endocrine system and that it forms the basis of the chemical mediator disorder.]
