[Fine-structure analysis of muscle lesions in dystrophia muscularis progressiva]

KORÉNYI Both András, LAPIS Károly, GALLAI Margit

[Authors have used light and electron microscopy to examine material from a biopsy of a sister parathyroid patient with dystrophia musculorum progressiva. The fine structural alterations were consistent with those in the fine structure of neurogenic atrophies, denervated or otherwise damaged striated muscles. In dystrophia musculorum progressiva, the most common lesion affecting most muscle fibres is swelling of the sarcoplasmic reticulum system, which may be a morphological picture of the... tovább »

[About childhood polyneuritis ]

MÁTTYUS Adorján

[In our presentation of 6 cases of "allergic" polyneuritis in children, we draw attention to the polymorphism of the clinical picture, the frequent involvement of the cranial nerve and the likely frequency of asymptomatic cases. The rare prolonged cases may be confused with heredodegenerative diseases. Their recognition is very important, because their prospects of recovery can be substantially improved by cortisone treatment. ]

[CSF cytology problems in neurological carcinoma]

PÉTER Ágnes, SZEGEDY László, HUSZÁR Ilona

[Authors describe 3 cases of neurological carcinoma in which suspicious cells were found in the CSF. In patient 1, a brain metastasis of a bronchial carcinoma with normal cell count and lymphocyte-like tumour cells were detected. In patient 2, a malignant papilloma of the plexus papilloma infiltrating the meninges caused chronic meningitis and the CSF cytology picture suggested a tumour-like origin of the disease process. In patient 3, metastasis of cervical carcinoma resulted in cauda... tovább »

[The generalised spike-wave spasm mechanism and the reticular awakening system ]

HALÁSZ P., HIDASI J.

[In the context of an atypical status epilepticus consisting of partly generalized spike-wave and partly generalized de-synchronizing seizures, the relationship between the generalized spike-wave mechanism and the reticular awakening system is discussed. On the basis of the accumulated experimental data and clinical experience, as well as the lessons learned from our case study, we suggest that cortical inhibition of the facilitatory influence of the reticular waking system plays an essential... tovább »
