[Effect of anxiety on Achilles tendon reflex semi-relaxation time]

FEJÉR Arthur

[In states of anxiety, the duration of the f. r. i. of the Achilles reflex decreases, although the decrease rarely reaches the extent of the decrease in f. r. i. induced by hyperthyroidism. Both placebo injections and exam situations cause a decrease in f.r.i., but the latter effect is several times greater than the former. In a patient in a state of anxiety, 10 mg. Frenolone i.m. 1 hour after the sedative effect, a significant increase in f.r. i. is observed. This effect is significantly... tovább »

[Valium (Diazepam) effects on epileptic crises and certain epileptic mechanisms]

HALÁSZ P., MOLNÁR Gy., HIDASI J.

[In addition to the generally observed good effect, we observed one case in which Valium worsened the epileptic mechanism (case 6). This observation seems to contradict the many reports in the literature that Valium has a good effect in petit mal and spike-wave mechanism. However, a distinction should be made between the different spike-wave mechanisms. In our other patient (case 3) we also observed a beneficial effect of Valium in spike-wave mechanism. However, this latter case was a... tovább »

[Data for the Autogen Training methodology and indicative questions]

KORONKAI Bertalan, HORVÁTH Szabolcs

[The authors outline the main factors involved in the development, practice and spread of AT. They briefly describe Schultz's classical method. They describe in more detail the methodology they developed, which they applied to groups of 6-10 patients and in which they attach great importance to suggestive support. They share their experience with AT treatment, which they find useful for AT indicatio: all personality types except H and I are suitable for learning the exercises. Of the psychic... tovább »

[Persistent expansive-productive confabulatory image after contusio cerebri]

POHL Ödön, HAITS Géza

[The authors describe a 35-year-old male patient who developed a specific expansive confabulosis after contusio cerebri, which persisted and even progressed after the other symptoms of amnestic syndrome had resolved. The patient was re-examined 21 months after his first admission: the confabulosis persisted and was embedded in the symptoms of personality development suggestive of post-traumatic encephalopathy. The authors refer to their previous communication describing the medical history of... tovább »

[Diffuse demyelinating giant cell reticulomascoma metastases ]

ÉDER Mária

[In a circumscribed case of metastatic reticulum sarcoma, severe oedema and demyelination were observed in both hemispheres. In the clinical picture, local symptoms attributable to the direct effect of the tumour were accompanied by bilateral hemisphaerial white matter lesions. In all cases of brain tumours, but especially in sarcoma metastases, bilateral symptoms should be considered not only bilateral tumour formation but also bilateral white matter oedema-necrosis.]

[On current problems in psychiatric methodology]

PETHŐ Bertalan

[Science is a systematically structured system. Today, the scientific status of psychiatry is threatened by the lack of a unified system for the many different views and schools of thought. The main reason for this critical situation is the lack of clarity of methodological problems. The methodological problem, taking into account its historical development, can be briefly outlined as follows. ]

[Sarcoma of the femoral nerve causing symptoms of "mononeuritis" ]

RÁPOLTY Zsuzsa

[A case of a 37-year-old female patient. A relatively small tumour, histologically consistent with a sarcoma, causing symptoms of femoral nerve dropout, was removed by complete transection of the nerve trunk. Surgery was performed 3 months after the first symptoms appeared. The patient has been symptom-free for 16 months so far. In our case, unilateral progressive lesions of the femoral nerve of unclear origin should be considered as tumours and surgical exploration should be considered in case... tovább »
