[Clinico-morphological correlation in common dementias]

PAPP I. Mátyás

[ln the late sixties the revelation that more than half of the dementia cases in elderly people were caused by Alzheimer's disease and not by „cerebral arteriosclerosis" gave dementia research a new impetus, which accelerated in the eighties and has nowadays become explosive and has supplied us with a mass of data almost beyond comprehension. Nevertheless, even though it is most intensively, studied elucidation of the etiology and pathogenesis of the Alzheimer' s disease is still not expectable... tovább »

[Typical behavior models of dealing with epilepsy - the models present between patient and members of the family]

NEMESSÚRI Judit, TÖLGYES Tamás, VERES Judit, RAJNA Péter

[Four are main symptom groups described which were previously considered to be not more than an organic consequence of epilepsy. In most cases in the background of these groups a pathogenic/ pathogenetic role of typical relationship constellations between the patient and his/her relatives can be observed. These constellations are illustrated by case descriptions. It is pointed out that: 1. Epilepsy is a chronic illness in the course of which in every case certain psychodynamic events take place... tovább »

[Characteristics of gadolinium-enhancement in ischemic stroke]

KENÉZ József, BARSI Péter, KULIN Árpád, NAGY Zoltán

[Stroke is a clinical diagnosis. In acute stroke, CT is the first examination of choice to exclude hemorrhage. In ischemic stroke, MR detects the changes earlier and more exactly, than CT. Contrast-enhanced MR imaging shows specific enhancement phenomena, viz. Intravasal high signal in the vessels of the ischemic cerebral region, meningeal enhancement, transitorial, mixed type enhancement and parenchymal enhancement. Our paper is deals with the causes and diagnostic significance of the... tovább »

[Determination of serum C-reactive protein in the illnesses of central nervous system]

PINTÉR Erzsébet, KÁLI Gábor, VUKMIROVITS György, NIKOLOVA Radka, YOUSEF M. Gassar, GYARMATI Éva

[Serum quantitative C-reactive protein concentrations were measured in 186 patients admitted with suspected neuroinfection or symptoms of other diseases in the central nervous system. The diagnoses were purulent meningitis (102), abscessus cerebri (5), meningitis basilaris (2), meningitis cryptococcica (1), sepsis (11), encephalitis (22), encephalopathia (5), autoimmune central nervous illness/disease/disorder (22), non-inflammatory central nervous disease/ disorder (12) and tumour cerebri (4).... tovább »

[Chronic recurrent transverse myelitis or multiple sclerosis]

UNGUREÁN Aurélia, PÁLFI Sándor, DIBÓ György, VÉCSEI László

[The simultaneous appearance of multiple sclerosis and transverse myelitis is a known phenomenon. Apart from the appearance of spinal symptoms, other neurological signs of the brain involvement can urually be found, MRI shows disseminated foci in the brain. The positive evoked responses, the immunological abnormalities of the CSF, and the oligoclonality together prove the presence of multiple sclerosis. In these cases the symptoms of transverse myelitis may precede other signs of multiple... tovább »

[Trial to verify the link between onset of epileptic seizures and complex meteorological changes, pilot study]

BÁRTFAY Réka, BÁRTFAI Erzsébet, CSIBRI Éva, RAJNA Péter

[In this pilot study parameters are found that suggest a possible link between the onset of epileptic seizures and meteorological changes. The meteorological conditions were divided into 7 different levels in terms of their sympathetic/ parasympathetic effect and were related to the onset of 816 epileptic seizures of 15 patients. The possible epileptogenic effect of rapid (within 12 hours) meteorological changes was also evaluated and 48-hour periods before and after a given seizure were also... tovább »

[Report from the World Congress of the International Federation of Multiple Sclerosis Societies in Budapest]

KOMOLY Sámuel

[The International Federation of Multiple Sclerosis Societies, at the invitation of the Hungarian MS Society, held its 27th Annual Congress in Budapest from 15-22 September 1994, with 340 participants from 34 countries. The congress was attended by patients, volunteers and doctors (including many world-renowned experts on the disease) who discussed current problems in MS and the work of the World Federation. The venue provided a good opportunity for neighbouring countries where the MS self-help... tovább »

MÁRKUS Atilla

[By agreement between the Board of the Neurology Journal and the management of our Society, the Béla Horányi Clinical Neuroscience Society became a co-owner of the Neurology Journal in July 1994. This event has prompted us to describe some of the most important features and operational characteristics of our society.]
