[Clinical genetic aspects of neurocutaneous diseases - tuberous sclerosis and neurofibromatosis, HLA-antigen testing and computed tomography diagnosis]

LÁSZLÓ Aranka, BARTHA László, CSOBÁLY Sándor, KAISER Gabriella, SVÉKUS András

[The authors performed HLA typing in 5 families with tuberous sclerosis (ST), demonstrating a significantly higher prevalence of HLA-A w31 antigen, without involvement of the B an antigen group. An autosomal dominant origin was confirmed in 4 families and a first gene mutation origin in 1 family, based on UV light examination of the outer skin of the family members, with detectable fluorescence of depigmented spots. Of 6 cases of neurofibromatosis (Nf), 4 were forme fruste forms, the... tovább »

[Myasthenic myasthenia gravis: Total muscle lactic acid dehydrogenase (LDH) activity and LDH isoenzyme distribution]

SZATHMÁRY István, SELMECI László, PÓSCH Elek, SZOBOR Albert, MOLNÁR János

[The authors determined the total activity of lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) and malic dehydrogenase (MDH) per wet weight and the percentage distribution of LDH isoenzymes in muscle samples taken during thymectomy from the sternothyroid muscle of 62 patients with myasthenia gravis, and calculated the MDH/LDH ratio and the percentage of H and M subunits. In comparing their results with clinical data, they found that significant decreases in the percentage of LDH; isoenzyme and M subunit, and... tovább »

[Traumatic aneurysm in the cortical branch of the middle cerebral artery]

KÖVÉR Ferenc, MÉREI F. Tibor, GELLÉT Marianna

[The course of a female patient with a traumatic aneurysm of the cortical branch of the cerebral medial artery two months after a covered skull injury with a lineal fracture of the lamina vitrea is described. It highlights the importance of performing angiography in cases where the cause of deterioration following trauma is not detected by CT scanning. It provides data to identify the morphological features of traumatic intracranial aneurysms by histological processing of the aneurysm. ]
