[A case of pubertal psychosis ]

DRIETOMSZKY Jenő

[Authors have taken different paths, emphasising the dominance of different characteristics in relation to the pubertal period. It is generally accepted that this age is characterised by a breakdown of the previous relative somatic and psychic equilibrium, which, together with the heightened susceptibility to stimuli from the outside world, which is also observed at this age, may be the basis for a number of dangers, including undesirable, possibly pathological, personality development.

[Diffuse CSF invasion of oligodendroglioma ]

BALAJTHY Béla

[In our oligodendroglioma case, the histopathological examination revealed a ",total metastasis" of the tu. liquor pathways. The connective tissue elements are actively involved in the process of expansion in the subarachnoid space and show excitatory phenomena which we assume to be related to the blastomatous stimulus acting on them. The term "tumorous meningitis" is not uninteresting to designate the picture. The fact that this phenomenon occurs only exceptionally in oligodendroglioma cases... tovább »

[A case of congenital word blindness ]

SZECSŐDY Imre

[In summary, we believe that congenital word blindness is not a single pathology, but rather a syndrome, in which in many cases there may indeed be an anatomical abnormality, but which, as in aphasia, never causes the loss of a specific isolated function, but which, by disrupting the dynamic unity of the nervous functions, is the main symptom of a general disorder. It is therefore plausible to assume a milder degree of mental retardation, with symptoms that are more dominant than dominant in... tovább »

[Electroclinical study with temporal lobectomy in Ammon's horn sclerosis epileptics]

KAJTOR Ferenc, HABERLAND Katalin, HULLAY József, ÁNGYÁN András

[Seven patients with temporal lobe epilepsy in whom biopsy histology showed Ammon's horn sclerosis were subjected to electroclinical observations. The clinical features were high seizure activity during sleep, frequency of vegetative seizure phenomena and automatisms, personality abnormalities without intellectual impairment, intense mediobasal (garati) and hippocampal spasmodic activity. Temporal lobectomy provided the best results in the areas of EEG, seizure freedom and personality... tovább »

[Data on the cerebral hemisphere and lobes sclerosis]

TARISKA István

[It can be concluded that the extensive cortical damage that is the hallmark of hemispheric atrophies and lobar scleroses is, according to the literature and our own case studies, the result of an anoxic-vascular disturbance, which is particularly predisposed to occur as a consequence of a disturbance of the flow through relatively large pial arterial trunks or arterial border zones. This is associated with convulsions in the majority of cases, but convulsions must be accompanied by some other... tovább »
