[Pathophysiology of restless leg syndrome and periodic leg movement disorder in view of the latest research findings]

KÖVES Péter, SZAKÁCS ZOLTÁN

Considering the characteristic clinical symptoms, it is supposed that their pathomechanism involves the peripheral and central stimulusprocessing mechanisms of the nervous system as well as several elements of the motor system. During the last couple of years many new elements of the pathomechanism have been discovered, in... tovább »

[THE SELECTIVE COX-2 INHIBITOR MELOXICAM AND SALICYLATE THERAPY]

TÓTH Károly

[Although during treatment of arthrosis with meloxicam the level of thromboxan A2 decreases, thrombocyte functions are not affected. Meloxicam in therapeutic doses doesn’t increase the risk of haemorrhage. Previously it was suspected that coadministration of salicylates with certain other non-steroid antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) will suppress the effect of salicylate. Van Ryn et al have proved that this is not the case with salicylate plus meloxicam therapy. It is hypothesized that meloxicam... tovább »

[A case history and diagnostical rewiev of primary cerebral angiitis]

CSÉPÁNY Tünde, KOLLÁR József, SIKULA Judit, MOLNÁR Mária, CSIBA László

[The authors present a case history of primary cerebral angiitis with four years of follow-up. The early diagnosis was based on typical clinical symptoms, brain MRI, intracerebral MRA and histology of sural nerve biopsy. Electroneurography suggested peripheral involvement, although the patient did not have clinical signs of peripheral neuropathy. Glucocorticoid and immunosuppressive treatment resulted in remission. The diagnostic difficulties of primary cerebral vasculitis are also summarized... tovább »
