[Bilateral tibialis anterior syndrome]

KÓMÁR József, LEHOCZKY Tibor

[Authors describe bilateral tibialis anterior syndrome after strenuous standing work in a 49-year-old female patient. Based on histopathological examination of muscle biopsy, increased subsidence and leukocytosis, the clinical symptoms are considered to be due to myositis. Treatment with ACTH relieved the patient of symptoms. The syndrome is considered to be polyaetiological and, on the basis of Morger's studies, conservative treatment with anti-inflammatory drugs is recommended instead of... tovább »

[Maniform psychosomatic alternating periodic hypersomnia ]

POHL Ödön, HAITS Géza

[The authors describe a 19-year-old male patient who developed a parotitis epidemic 2 years ago and experienced severe drowsiness lasting for days. Since then, his hypersomnia has recurred 5 times over a period of 2-3 weeks, with repeated episodes of manic psychosis in between. Authors hypothesize meningoencephalitis as an aetiological factor accompanying parotitis epidemica and leading to diencephalon, but they also suggest that genetic factors may be involved in the onset of maniform... tovább »

[Follow-up results of trigeminal excisions for tic douloureux]

ZAPPE Lajos, NAGY Vilmos

[Authors report 1-7 year follow-up results of 121 intracranial trigeminal truncations in 120 patients and report the following findings: 1. in the area of the auricle and angulus mandibulae, the separation of the trigeminal and adjacent innervated areas is not sharp, and there is certainly overlap. 2. Any regeneration that may occur after surgery starts from this area, with the loss of sensation extending back towards the medial orbital ridge. 3. After complete shutdown of the nerve,... tovább »

[Diagnostic errors in meningiomas of the cerebellum in old age]

ÉDER Mária, LŐRINCZ Gábor

[Diffuse oedematous phenomena were found in the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres, more pronounced on the same side as the tumour. We also observed oedema in the white matter of the cerebellar hemisphere of the cerebellum, which was accompanied by even older and more recent microscopic haemorrhages on the tumour side. The investigators in this case were led to an incorrect pathology by a nearly one and a half year asymptomatic period, a rapidly developing personality change, symptoms... tovább »

[Drug treatment trials for the treatment of chronic alcoholism (II)* a) About the metronidazole-alcohol reaction ]

KARDOS György, SZABADOS Pál

[Alcohol aversion or because of the risks and complications of disulfiram cures, interest in the temperance drugs (cyanamide, calcium carbamide citrate, etc.) ensuring relative intolerance has increased in recent years all over the world. Verff. report 117 therapy drinking tests on 50 patients and some self-experiments with trichomonacid-metronidazole. At equal doses of alcohol, the reaction whose main symptoms are described is much milder than the disulfiram-alcohol reaction; on the other... tovább »

[E250 (phenylisopropylmethylpropynylamine Hcl.) clinical experience]

A. Tibor, LIPÁK János, KLEININGER Ottó

[Authors observed the effects of E250 (phenylisopropylmethyl propinylamine HCl) in a total of 56 patients. Their experience was unfavourable in major depressive disorder associated with marked anxiety and abnormal thought processes. In milder depressions, it has been found to be effective in combination with tranquillisers and sleeping pills. It can also be used as a stimulant in adjusted doses depending on individual tolerance. Almost without exception, it enhanced activation and psychic... tovább »

[Beszámoló a fenilisopropilmetilpropinilaminnal végzett therapiás kísérletekről]

KARDOS György, FÜREDI János

[The authors conducted exploratory therapeutic trials in 46 patients with chronic schizophrenia using one of the new phenylalkylamine derivatives, phenylisopropylmethyl propinylamine HCl, synthesized by Knoll and colleagues. They conclude that thymoanalepticum, labelled E 250, is a drug that promises to be effective in chronic schizophrenics; at least in some cases. Since their chemosimilar experimental method, aimed at clinicopharmacological studies, has also led to therapeutic results, they... tovább »

[Reduced performance of neurotic pupils ]

RÉTI László

[The performance of neurotic learners is reduced by quantitative (symptomatological) and qualitative. (aetiological) components can be stopped and eliminated. It is necessary to know the extent of the decline and its causal and personal conditions. In practice, the opposite is done: deconcentrated, hypermotor learners are increasingly warned, scolded and punished. Ineffectively, of course. The discovery of the extent of performance loss, the recognition of environmental impairments, the... tovább »
