[Diffuse cortical necrosis following pertussis]

CSERMELY Hubert, FÁBER Viktor

[The neurological complications of pertussis are relatively rare but significant, with a third being fatal and, in some cases, permanent damage if survival is not achieved. (1) haemorrhage into the subdural or subarachnoid space and massive interacerebral haemorrhage, or white matter ring and globe haemorrhages, (2) cellular degenerations caused by anoxia-vascular damage, this is the true pertussis encephalopathy. 3. parainfectious encephalitis. The latter is the rarest, with only one authentic... tovább »

[Anoxic brain findings in status epilepticus associated with acute alcohol intoxication]

SCHÉDA Vilmos

[13-year-old boy died of acute alcohol poisoning 30-32 hours after poisoning. Clinical features were circulatory failure, decerebration and serial epileptic seizures. At autopsy, the brain was oedematous. Histopathologically, laminar necrosis was found extending over almost the entire cerebral cortex (except the area striata). Not only the cells of layers III and V were degenerated (mainly ischemic cell changes), but also the granule cells (shrinkage). The mesenchymal reaction was marked, but... tovább »

[Clinical and EMG studies of spinal reflexes in preterm and mature infants]

FÉNYES István, GERGELY Károly, TÓTH Szabolcs

[1. The reflexes of "spinal automatism", namely the crossed extensor reflex, can only be triggered in normal preterm and mature newborns exceptionally, but not regularly, when tested with the techniques used so far. 2. Using a technique hitherto used only in animal experiments, the crossed extensor reflex can be elicited normally at very low stages of development of the nervous system. 3. The crossed inguinal extensor reflex, a variant of the crossed extensor reflex, decreases in intensity... tovább »

[Symposium on current encephalitis]

TARISKA István

[Symposium on current encephalitis with 60-65 experts from 14-15 countries Symposium (S) was held at the Institut de Médicine Tropicale in Antwerp, Belgium, at the initiative of the Belgian Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche Neuropathologiques, with the support of the World Federation of Neurology and the US National Institute of Neurology and Blindness. Ludo van Bogáért was the conceptual founder, organiser and president of the S.]
