[Data on myocardial myasthenia]

SZOBOR Albert

[The possibility of myasthenic involvement of the myocardium is discussed in a number of pathological reports and sporadic clinical literature, but the literature is not uniform. Our own review of casuistry provides no support for a specific understanding of cardiac dysfunction in patients with myasthenia; the cardiac histopathology findings of a patient who died of malignant myasthenia associated with thymoma were negative. The question may be related to the noncrisis-based mors subita in... tovább »

[Clinical experience with a new neuroleptic, Luvatren]

CZOPF József, KÉZDI Balázs

[A new butyrophenone derivative, Luvatren, was used to treat 18 inpatients and 2 outpatients, predominantly schizophrenics resistant to other treatments. 10 patients were discharged home as a result of treatment. The treatment was mainly effective in those with poor motivation, inhibition, negativism, incoherent thinking. In 4 cases we observed side effects (symptomatic Parkinsonism and collapsus-like malaise). ]

[About neurological sarcoidosis]

MOLNÁR Sándor, ANNAU Magda

[The authors reported two cases of neurological sarcoidosis. The nature of the disease process in both cases was revealed by muscle biopsy examination. One case was a case of meningoencephalitis with psychiatric symptoms and the second case was a case of recurrent diabetes insipidus and motor neuron abnormalities. After describing the two cases, the authors presented the literature on neurological sarcoidosis, with some lessons learned.]

[Intramedullary epidermoid tumour]

DÉNES Iván, ÁFRA Dénes

[In our case, we did not find any data in the anamnesis that could be validated in favour of an exogenous implantation origin. The intramedullary location also argues against external implantation, as all intramedullary epidermoids are classified as congenital by the authors. Despite the onset of the disease in old age and the long course of the disease, our case must be classified as congenital, which emphasises the specificity and rarity of the case.]

[Study of changes in blood coagulation during carotid angiography]

LÁNG Sándor, AMBRÓZY György, HAITS Géza

[Authors studied the effect of contrast on blood clotting during carotid angiography in 50 cases. They found that the average amount of contrast agent given during carotid angiography had no appreciable effect on coagulation. ]
