[On the treatment and origin of acute life-threatening mental disorders (so-called acute fatal catatonia)]

NAGY Tibor

[1. Acute life-threatening insanity can be cured by early and cumulative electroshock treatment. 2. The syndrome can be understood as a cluster of symptoms of cortico-cerebrospinal-pituitary-adrenal dysfunction, which may be triggered by psychic, somatic and toxic effects. 3. Instead of the various names used in the literature - delirium acutum, amentia, catatonia perniciosa, azotaemic insanity, acute toxic psychosis, etc. - a more comprehensive name seems justified.]

[The u. n. treatment of acute fatal catatonia electrospasm]

VARGHA Miklós, KOVÁCS Béla

[Attempts have been made to deconstruct the nosolgical entity of schizophrenia from several angles. A detailed differentiation on the basis of psychopathology may be useful in order to find a closer link between the diverse biochemical, pathophysiological, morphological sub-scores and the psychopathological picture. Morphological lesions (Miskolczy, Hechst (Horányi), Josephy, Fünfgeld), as Miskolczy emphasises, only provide a consistent picture in certain forms of schizophrenia. The relative... tovább »

[Data on the pathomechanism of ventricular diverticulus formation]

SOÓS Imre, MOHÁCSI Ildikó

[A case of a lateral ventricular diverticulum herniating into the cisterna ambiens and a case of multiple intracerebral ventricular diverticulosis were described. Cisterna ambiens diverticulum may form in adulthood on rigid hydrocephalus cerebrum, although it has also been described in children. It is essentially an infratentorial herniation of the retrosplenial gyrus in a slowly developing brain pressure gradient. A large differential between supratentorial and infratentorial pressures is a... tovább »

[Some aspects of "primary-infectious" polyradiculoneuritis ]

JUBA Adolf

[After presenting the clinical and histopathological findings of two quite acute (2 days and 7-8 days) fatal "ascending polyradiculoneuritis", the author deals with pathological issues, which, given the severity of the cases, the histopathology provides a good starting point. The focus of the tissue process falls on the area between the root nerve and the intervertebral duct. However, inflammatory infiltrates are initially very sparse, consist of lymphocytes throughout, and do not extend beyond... tovább »
