[Depression in neuropsychiatric diseases]

HIDASI Zoltán, SALACZ Pál, CSIBRI Éva

[Depression is frequently observed together with neurological disorders. Moreover this connection is bidirectional in the case of several neurological disorders, as depression can be either a comorbide syndrome or also a risk factor of them. Neurobiological background of depression involves neuroanatomical structures, their interconnected networks, disturbances of neurotransmitters, neurohormonal, neuroimmunological and neurotrophic changes, genetic background. Disfunction of these systems also... tovább »

[The clinical relevance of 1p19q codeletion of oligodendrogliomas at the Department of Neurosurgery in Debrecen]

KLEKNER Álmos, FEKETE Gábor, RENCSI Márta, MÉHES Gábor, SZABÓ Péter, BOGNÁR László

[Object - To determine the clinical relevance of 1p19q codeletion in case of patients treated between 2006 and 2008 with oligodendroglial tumor at the Department of Neurosurgery, University of Debrecen. Questions - Beside the traditional morphological investigations, methods of rapidly developing molecular pathology are also available for routine diagnostic procedures. Numerous studies confirm that the codeletion of the 1p and 19q alleles has a clinical relevance regarding the sensitivity for... tovább »

[The validation of the hungarian version of the Dimensional Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale]

HARSÁNYI András, CSIGÓ Katalin, RAJKAI Csaba, DÖME László, DEMETER Gyula, RACSMÁNY Mihály

[Background - The Obsessive-Compulsive disorder (OCD) has a complex phenotype, which can be summarized by using a few consistent and temporally stable symptom dimensions. The dimensional approach derived from the systematic factor analytic studies of OCD symptoms. In 2006, a new psychometric scale was created by M.C. Rosario-Campos and her colleague, the Dimensional Yale- Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DY-BOCS). This scale measures the presence and severity of obsessive-compulsive (OC)... tovább »

[Mutation analysis of alpha-galactosidase A gene in Hungarian Fabry patients]

LÁSZLÓ Aranka, TÖRÖK László, RAFFAI Sarolta, TÖRÖK Éva, SALLAY Éva, ENDREFFY Emőke, MORVAI László, AMSTEL Ploos Van JK

[Aim was to detect the mutations of alpha-galactosidase A gene in two Hungarian Fabry patients. Methods - Mutation analysis was performed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) sequencing of the seven exons and adjacent introns of the alpha-galactosidase A gene. Results - Case 1. (19 y. male patient) Mutation analysis was done for alpha-galactosidase gene, a missence mutation has been identified in the 5th exon, the aspartic acid at codon 266 has been substituted by a tyrosine (notation D266Y) due... tovább »

BANCZEROWSKI Péter, VAJDA János, BÁLINT Katalin, SIPOS László

[A very rare case of gliosarcoma of the pineal region with cerebellar metastasis is presented. A few cases of glioblastoma and fibrosarcoma have already been published however there was no reported case with gliosarcoma at the pineal region even with cerebellar metastases.]

[Rare angioproliferative tumors mimicking aggressive spinal hemangioma with epidural expansion]

KULCSÁR Zsolt, VERES Róbert, HANZÉLY Zoltán, BERENTEI Zsolt, MAROSFŐI Miklós, NYÁRY István, SZIKORA István

[Background and purpose - We present two cases of angio-proliferative tumors that were misdiagnosed and treated as typical hemangiomas with epidural expansion. Materials and methods - Two middle-aged women presented with symptoms and radiological signs characteristic for aggressive hemangioma with epidural expansion. In the first case preoperative embolization and decompressive surgery with open transpedicular vertebroplasty was performed. Within less than a year, epidural recurrence of the... tovább »
