[Data on traumatic confabulosis]

POHL Ödön, HAITS Géza

[In four cases, the authors describe a particular form of post-traumatic confabulosis in which confabulosis persisted for a long time after the regression of the cardinal symptoms of amnestic syndrome, and became the leading symptom of the disease. The specific state of consciousness of these patients, which cannot be characterized by the classical psychopathology types of pathological alterations of consciousness, is discussed in detail, and the pathomechanism of the phenomena described is... tovább »

He found the cerebrum intact, while in the cerebellar cortex he found characteristic lesions, partial or complete absence of Purkinje cells and an increase in Bergmann cells.

The diagnosis was confirmed in all three cases by a long follow-up and multiple control... tovább »

[Ocular fundus lesions in cases of panencephalitis nodosa]

SZABADI Elemér, OLÁH Imre

[In 130 cases of panencephalitis nodosa, abnormal orbital lesions were found in 61 patients (47%), 39 (76.5%) of 51 cases in the Neurology Clinic. In 79 and 76% of the fundus lesions, respectively, the papilla and 21-24% of the extrapapillary lesions were visible. In 14 cases, yellowish-white dots similar to old-age lipoid deposits were observed near the aequator. No parallel between the course of panencephalitis and the fundus image can be drawn on the basis of previous studies.]
