[Age-related lesions of the choroid plexus]

HORÁNYI Béla, SZENDRŐI Mária

[Authors studied 30 cases of age-related lesions of epithelial cells and stroma of the choroid plexus. In all cases, they found plexus sclerosis of variable intensity. In 21 cases, Biondi's lesions were detected in the epithelial cells of the plexus, detectable by silver impregnation. The morphological characteristics of these formations are discussed. In their material, they have compared the choroid plexus abnormalities with the occurrence of other age-related brain lesions, i.e. senile... tovább »

[Factors affecting the offsetting ability psychopathic reactions ]

MAGYAR István

[To summarise what has been said, I would like to present my views on psychopathy below. 1. The abnormal personality structure is not a disease and thus does not in itself affect the integrity of the capacity to reason. 2. The abnormal personality structure may facilitate the commission of a particular act, but its assessment as a mitigating circumstance is a matter for the judge. It is rarely necessary to draw the attention of the mental health professional to this fact, and in particular... tovább »

[Stereotactic treatment for Parkinson's disease ]

HULLAY József

[The author reports observations from 40 stereotaxic surgeries in 35 Parkinson's patients. He has developed a new stereotaxic method which, as far as possible, is maximally adapted to ventricular and structura variations and, accordingly, allows not only accurate targeting but also in vivo localization, documentation and interpretation of surgical events. Using his new method of laesio analysis, he detected compression of tremor- and tonus-responsive laesios at the boundaries of V.o. 1 p. and... tovább »

[The intrauterine feeding disorder late neuropsychiatric consequences]

LIPÁK János, BAZSÓ János, KLEININGER Ottó, ZSADÁNYI Ottó, SOÓS Árpád, MALÁN Mihály

[Anthropological, paediatric, ophthalmological, neuropsychiatric and psychological examinations were performed on 20 pairs of twins aged 10-17 years. In all twin pairs, the birth weight of one twin was at least 15% lower than that of the other twin, and in all cases below the median. All other influencing factors than birth weight were excluded. There is no doubt that there is a strong levelling off tendency in the low birth weight group, but the levelling off is not complete even at puberty.... tovább »

[Data on carotid circulation disorders I. Thombosis of the internal carotid artery]

DÉNES Iván, KÉKES Ede, HORÁNYI Péter

[The authors analysed data from 29 patients with internal carotid artery thrombosis. They highlight the importance of prevention and early diagnosis of the disease. In addition to the common clinical signs, they recommend monitoring changes in blood pressure, palpation of the carotid artery, performing a carotid pulse curve, and looking for contralateral murmur. In their experience, novocaine infiltration of the carotid sinus area is always effective in the treatment and prevention of severe... tovább »
