[The relationship between kappa rhythm and temporal paroxysms]

HASZNOS Tivadar

[By kappa rhythm, we mean the potentials induced by the 9-12/sec. count in the temporal derivation. The interpretation of kappa waves is still not uniform. Darow et al. and Kennedy et al. regard it as an artificial rhythm, or at least as a rhythm which is never considered as a separate temporal rhythm on its own. According to their hypothesis - and this is supported by a number of studies - intense mental work is accompanied by an increase in muscle tone, which would also entail, among other... tovább »

[Recent studies in panencephalitis II. Electrophysiological observations]

GOMBI Róza, ÓVÁRY Imre, GŐDÉNY Sára, SORSZEGI Pál, KAPPÉTER István, BENKŐ Károly

[Our electrophysiological observations are in agreement with the literature, according to which the Radermecker complex is a multifocal phenomenon, predominantly arising and manifesting in the cortex and at the border of the cortical white matter (Cobb 1966, Bogacz et al. 1959, etc.). This is suggested by the fact of multiple intracerebral phase reversals and the regional appearance or absence of complexes, which we observed in our patient. Intracerebral drainage has been performed very rarely... tovább »

[Data for the assessment of pneumoencephalograms (Diencephalosis and ventricular dilatation)]

VÁRNAI György, PEKÁR Aranka, SZEGEDY László, HAITS Géza

[Authors analysed pneumoencephalography recordings of 270 unselected patients with identical radiological and approximately identical insufflation technique conditions for the correlation of lateral chamber index, ventricular index III, and absolute values of lateral chamber and ventricular dilatation III. In 49 of their 49 patients with the symptom complex of ,,diencephalosis" (,,hypothalamopathy"), isolated or prevalent III ventricular dilatation was found in 24.4% (12 patients), whereas in... tovább »

[Genetic significance of muscle enzymes]

LIPCSEY Attila, SZABADI Elemér, FEKETE Istvánné

[Enzyme assays were performed in patients with recessive x-linked dystrophia musculorum progressiva in four families and their family members. From a genetic point of view, the measurement of KFK activity is considered to be the most valuable. The method is well suited for the detection of vectors and in the preclinical phase of dystrophia musculorum progressiva.]

[Polarographic studies from brain water]

MÁTYUS László, SCHÉDA Vilmos

[The authors performed qualitative protein analysis of cerebrospinal fluid from a Hungarian RADELKISZ-type polarograph in 158 patients. The criteria for normal curves were determined under the conditions described. An attempt was made to classify the abnormal curves and compare them with certain disease types. Lower than normal curves were obtained in endogenous psychoses and higher than normal curves in arteriosclerotic dementias, despite the fact that the protein content was within normal... tovább »

[Data on o-Toluidines and enzymatic liquor-sugar determination]

ÚJVÁROSI Imre, RUSZ Sándor

[From comparative tests of O-Toluidines and enzymatic CSF sugar determination, the values obtained with the two methods did not show any significant difference. Given circumstances and options dictate which method is used for routine testing. For experimental tests, the enzymatic method is the appropriate method.]

[Bronchopulmonary carcinoma with brain stem metastasis ]

ABONYI Eszter

[In the case of pontobulbar metastasis from bronchopulmonary adenocarcinoma, the clinical presentation was sudden and subacute. Subacutaneously developing brainstem syndromes should also be considered metastatic tumours. In all such cases, particular care should be taken to look for lung, breast and renal tumours that may be considered encephalophilic. The spread of brain carcinoma metastases may be significantly influenced by the structure of the brain tissue. ]
