[Histological lesions of the nervous system in Coxsackie B 3 infection in infancy]

BOZSIK György

[In a 7-day-old infant who was discharged due to Coxsackie B 3 infection, severe myocarditis, mild meningitis in the brain, marked spinal meningitis and severe glial-mesodermal inflammation in the thoracic part of the spinal cord were found. In the spinal cord, mainly the grey matter was affected, but the white matter was also significantly involved. In post-mortem virus isolation and viral titration experiments, a thousand-fold higher viral load was found in the myocardium than in the central... tovább »

[The potential and importance of early diagnosis of spinal canal tumours]

ZAPPE Lajos, NAGY Vilmos

[Publications on the surgical treatment of spinal canal tumours almost unanimously conclude that surgical results are not satisfactory, despite significant advances in surgical technique and in preparation and follow-up methods. The still rather high mortality rate and the relatively frequent failure to achieve the expected functional regeneration cannot be considered acceptable when one considers that 60-65% of spinal tumours are almost always radically resectable, histologically predominantly... tovább »

[Atypical, asymptomatic spinal fibroblastoma causing full compression CSF syndrome]

SZEGEDY László, SZOBOR Albert

[We describe a clinically asymptomatic spinal tumour with severe CSF lesions and complete spinal cord compression, in which the history of a luesian process led the investigators astray for a long time. In this case, we pointed out that, on the one hand, a high CSF proliferation is not usually explained by neurolucency and, on the other hand, that even in clinically asymptomatic cases, very severe neurological lesions may be present, which may be well compensated by the nervous system over a... tovább »
