[PRAMIPEXOLE THERAPY OF RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME]

VIDA Zsuzsanna, SZAKÁCS ZOLTÁN

[The restless legs syndrome is a disorder belonging to the family of movement disorders during sleep, often remains unrecognized, although it is the second most common cause of chronic sleep deficiency and daytime sleepiness. In accordance with international guidelines, pharmacotherapy of this disorder should begin with a dopamine agonist. Owing to their efficacy and favorable safety profile, newly introduced, selective dopamine agonists have become extensively used for this purpose. This study... tovább »

[THE FAMILIAL INCIDENCE OF EPILEPSY IN THE GROUP OF EPILEPTIC PATIENTS EXAMINED AFTER THEIR FIRST SEIZURE - PILOT STUDY]

RÓZSAVÖLGYI Margit, RAJNA Péter

[Introduction - It is essential to identify the genetic factors of epilepsy in the every day clinical practice for several reasons. The proof of the genetically defined sub-clusters existing inside the epileptic disease group is significant in diagnoses and therapy. The risk of inheriting epilepsy could influence the patient’s family planning which has a great impact on their quality of life. The aim of the study - To analyse clinical data obtained from patients examined after their first... tovább »

[CLINICAL EXPERIENCE WITH LEVETIRACETAM FOR ADULTS WITH EPILEPSY]

BARCS Gábor, SZŰCS Anna

[Objective - A retrospective study to evaluate the efficacy of levetiracetam in the treatment of adult pharmacoresistant epilepsy. Method - Retrospective work up of our treatmentexperiences with 55 pharmacoresistant patients treated with levetiracetam (11 of them on monotherapy) for 6-39 months. Three treatment groups were analysed: idiopathic generalised epilepsy (9 patients); partial epilepsy (30 patients); malignant or malignated epileptic syndromes (16 patients). Result - Seven idiopathic... tovább »

[APPLICATION OF FUNCTIONAL MR-IMAGES ACQUIRED AT LOW FIELD IN PLANNING OF NEUROSURGICAL OPERATION CLOSE TO AN ELOQUENT BRAIN AREA]

AUER Tibor, SCHWARCZ Attila, JANSZKY József, HORVÁTH Zsolt, KOSZTOLÁNYI Péter, DÓCZI Tamás

[Aim of the study - Presentation of functional MRI performed at low magnetic field (1 Tesla) for planning microsurgical operation in a patient suffering from tumor close to an eloquent brain area. Methods - Microsurgical removal navigated by frameless stereotaxy of an intrinsic tumor located in eloquent area is indicated if speech function is not damaged, i.e. exact localisation and relationship of the tumor and speech area can be defined. Before operation an optimized EPI based 2D sequence was... tovább »

[NONSENSE MUTATION 193C>T OF NEUROFIBROMATOSIS TYPE 2 - A NEUROSURGICAL CHALLENGE]

BOBEST Mátyás, TÓTH Csaba, GYURCSÓ Mária, MOLNÁR Mária Judit, GARZULY Ferenc

[A 15 years old male was operated because of incidentally found intercostal schwannoma. Two years later severe cerebellar ataxy and left sided anacusis developed. MRI revealed bilateral vestibularis tumors and multiple cervical intradural extramedullar myelon compressing lesions. After partial resection of the huge left sided cerebello-pontin tumor, histologically schwannoma, and the exstirpation of the multiple cervical meningiomas the patient died three months later due to septic... tovább »

[UNCOMMON MANIFESTATION OF CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM SARCOIDOSIS]

RÓZSA Anikó, SZTANKANINECZ Yvette, GÁCS Gyula, MAGYAR Tamás

[Two cases of uncommon manifestation of central nervous system sarcoidosis are reported. A 42 year-old man had a spinal cord sarcoidosis. MRI of the spinal cord showed myelopathy in the cervico-thoracic region, and the T2-weighted image showed increasing signal intensity. Neurological symptoms did not correllate with radiological abnormalities. Neurological manifestation was paucisymptomatic. Half a year later steroid and azatioprin therapy led to almost complet radiological and clinical... tovább »

[A CASE OF SCHIZENCEPHALY WITH POLYMICROGYRIA]

LEEL-ŐSSY Lóránt, SZŰCS Iván, ALMÁSI Kálmán

[A case of extensive bilateral frontotemporal schizencephaly is alleged - more extensively in the left hemisphere - which associated with polymicrogyria. The cortical anomaly was discovered only incidentally by MR examination in a 22 year-old man who suffered from headache due to a mild head trauma. Neurological examination proved to be negative. He had no complaints or symptoms a few weeks later. The developmental anomalies in corticalisation are shortly overviewed in this group together with... tovább »

[UPDATES IN PRACTICAL NEUROLOGY - I. THE PRINCIPLES OF MODERN LEVODOPA THERAPY IN PARKINSON’S DISEASE]

KLIVÉNYI Péter, VÉCSEI László

[Despite the levodopa is used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease for a long time, recently many questions raised about its clinical use. New issues emerged based on the clinical trials, on latest neuroimaging data and on better understanding the pathomechanism of motor complications. These observations have changed the routine clinical use of levodopa. In this review we summarize the evidences and practical implications of levodopa therapy.]
