[The role of succinimides in the treatment of childhood epilepsy]

KISZELY Katalin, MÁTTYUS Adorján

[We report on 42 children with epilepsy treated with Zarontin (Suxinutin) and Celontin, who had defied all therapies until then. 9 of 11 "classic" petit mal (3 c/s spike-wave) were seizure-free, 2 improved greatly. 7 of 13 children with petit mal varians EEG became seizure-free, 4 improved greatly. Of 9 cases with "other generalised" EEG (clinically mostly mixed GM and PM), 4 had no seizures, 1 had a severe seizure disorder. Of 8 focal epilepsies, 1 improved moderately, 2 greatly.

[Alcoholism and endogenous psychoses]

KARDOS György, MÁRIA Béla

[Chronic alcoholism is not a nosological category, but a clinical umbrella term: it encompasses different syndromes of habitual drunkenness and of real and symptomatic alcoholism, which are built up by a combination of co-pathogenic factors. Authors have studied cases of symptomatic alcoholism where daily or periodic alcohol abuse is associated with other psychiatric pathologies. They report on their studies of coincidences of endogenous psychoses and alcoholism. On the basis of the... tovább »

[Study of diencephalon function in elderly (involutional) depression]

LÁNG Sándor, HAITS Géza

[The authors report their studies in involutional depression with appropriate controls and verified by mathematical-statistical calculations. In elderly depressive states, biochemical changes can be detected in patients in the body. These changes are mainly manifested in the abnormal running of sugar curves following carbohydrate loading and reduced reactivity of adrenal cortex function. After recovery, most of the abnormal symptoms disappear.]

[„Ballancement psychosomatique”]

MÁRIA Béla, ADORJÁNI Ferenc

[Authors are dealing with a particular phenomenon called "Ballancement psychosomatique", where psychiatric and somatic illnesses alternate with a certain regularity. In addition to the work of the eponymous French authors, they discuss the data available in the world literature on this subject. Finally, the authors themselves attempt to point out the pathomechanism of the phenomenon. ]

[Diabetes patient attempts suicide by skipping insulin]

KUN Miklós

[I described the suicide attempt of a 25-year-old male diabetic patient with insulin deprivation and tried to point out the psychological background of the suicide attempt. The interesting aspect of the case is that the above-mentioned suicide was previously unknown in the medical literature. ]

[Data on the surgical management of posterior-scalene meningiomas ]

ZOLTÁN László, FÉNYES István

[Authors have tried to provide some data on the surgical management of infratentorial meningiomas based on data from 41 of their own patients and literature reviews. Their experience, together with the available literature data, suggests that the greatest possible radicality should be carried through in the surgical resolution of posterior-scalene meningiomas. They are aware that the neurosurgeon has always tried to perform complete excision of any tumour, but especially extracerebral... tovább »
