[Electroencephalographic studies in children with congenital vitium ]

RÁKOS György

[Electroencephalography was performed in 80 children with congenital vitium. Among 40 non-cyanotic, cardiac-compensated, clinically intact children with a clinically intact nervous system, only one with coarctation of the aortae was found to have an abnormality. Of 40 children with cyanotic congenital vitium, 13 were found to have cerebral lesions with eeg. No correlation was found between haematological data and eeg abnormality. A higher than average number of children with severe mental... tovább »

[Alcoholism issues in a village life]

JUHÁSZ Pál, ZSADÁNYI Ottó

[In 1961, a village of 629 inhabitants consumed 500 000 HUF worth of alcoholic beverages. One individual spent more than 2 HUF per day for the total population and more than 6 HUF per day for the adult male population, which represents 12 and 36% of the total income per person respectively. 17 chronic alcoholics are from the better-off and more culturally demanding population of the village. The fight against alcoholism can be tackled by expanding cultural leisure activities, by creating a... tovább »

[About the neurological causes of difficulty passing urine]

MAGASI Péter

[Some authors recognise a disease in which neither a neurological cause nor a local cause (inflammation of the sphincter or bladder neck or mechanical obstruction to urine emptying) can be identified, but urine emptying is probably obstructed by an overweight of the orifice intimal muscles. This is suggested by the recognition that these conditions can also be resolved by resection of the bladder neck.]

[Quantitative electromyography]

MECHLER Ferenc, KAJTOR Ferenc

[It can be concluded that the operator of quantitative electromyography must have considerable neurological experience, must be able to determine in which cases electromyography is necessary and which muscles should be examined in a given case. However, there is no doubt that the objective diagnostic value of the quantitative method of electromyography is also greater, albeit more costly and more work than the older, non-quantitative routine method that is more commonly used. ]

[Cerebrospinal fluid hypotension associated with vaso-anoxic cerebral damage]

ZAPPE Lajos, DÖMÖTÖR Lajos

[The authors present the case of a 47-year-old male patient who developed aliquorrhoea and severe apallium syndrome in the setting of fever (presumably influenza); the disease was cured without residual symptoms after antibiotic treatment and intrathecal and parenteral fluid therapy. Based on analysis of the clinical data, it is considered likely that both the aliquorrhoea and the neurological symptoms were the consequence of a disturbance of the intracranial circulation. In their case, the... tovább »
