VARGA Márta, DUKAY-SZABÓ Szilvia, TÚRY Ferenc

[The place of orthorexia nervosa (ON) - described by Bratman in 1997 - is not clearly defined in the diagnostic systems. However, the increasing number of clinical experiences and research data gives us more and more information about the epidemiology, and the social and individual characteristics of ON. The general population shows a 6.9% prevalence of ON; healthcare professionals are at high risk of ON with the prevalence rate of 35-57.6%. Education, the choice of profession, socioeconomic... tovább »

[Prenatal diagnosis of central nervous system malformations]

LANGMÁR Zoltán, NÉMETH Miklós, CSABA Ákos, SZIGETI Zsanett, JOÓ József Gábor

[The prenatal diagnosis of fetal malformations have been the subject of numerous publications in the literature. This has dramatically increased in the last 15 years, mainly due to the advent of high-resolution ultrasound. In addition adequate guidelines issued by professional organizations have encouraged the universal approach to the imaging of fetal anatomy as well as malformations. One of the most significant groups of the fetal anomalies is the central nervous system malformation. Due to... tovább »

[Sacral insufficiency fractures]

FERENC Mária, PUHL Mária, VARGA Péter Pál

[Background - The spontaneous osteoporotic fracture of the sacrum, known as a sacral insufficiency fracture (SIF) was first described as an unrecognized syndrome of the elderly by Laurie, in 1982. Numerous case histories and a few series of cases have been discussed in medical journals; however, none have been reported in Hungary. Goal - To delineate the leading diagnostic steps in the recognition of SIF and review the therapeutic guidelines. Case histories, methods - Between January 2009 and... tovább »

[Transcranial Doppler assessment of cerebral vasomotor reactivity in evaluating effects of vinpocetine in cerebral small vessel disease: a pilot study]

JOVANOVIC B. Zagorka, PAVLOVIC M. Aleksandra, PEKMEZOVIC Tatjana, MIJAJLOVIC Milija, NADEŽDA Šternić Čovičković

[Background - There are still dilemmas about the vasodilating effect of vinpocetine, a synthetic ethyl alkaloid vincamine. The method of measuring cerebral vasomotor reactivity (VMR) by transcranial Doppler (TCD) technique before and after administration of the medication was used to estimate the degree of arterioles vasodilatation. The aim of this study was to test of the vasodilating effect of vinpocetine in patients with cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) by measuring cerebral VMR. Material... tovább »

[Minor physical anomalies in autism]

TÉNYI Tamás, JEGES Sára, HALMAI Tamás, CSÁBI Györgyi

[Background and purpose - Minor physical anomalies are mild, clinically and cosmetically insignificant errors of morphogenesis which have a prenatal origin and may bear major informational value for diagnostic, prognostic and epidemiological purposes. Since both the central nervous system and the skin are derived from the same ectodermal tissue in utero, minor physical anomalies can be external markers of abnormal brain development and they appear more commonly in neurodevelopmental disorders.... tovább »

[Nebivolol in treatment of multiplex aneurysms]

OLÁH Csaba, DEMETER Béla, SZÓLICS Alex, LÁZÁR István

[Introduction - We examined the effect of nebivolol on blood pressure control after subarachnoidal hemorrhage in three patients with multiple aneurysms. Patients and methods - Endovascular intervention was applied to treat the bleeding aneurysms of all patients, and the silent aneurysms were followed-up. In all patients nebivolol was used as long-term anti-hypertensive medication. Results - With nebivolol treatment the blood pressure in our patients was maintained in the normal range with no... tovább »

FEKETE Gábor, NAGY Andrea, PATAKI István, BOGNÁR László, NOVÁK László

[The authors report a rare case of the peripheral obstruction of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. Premature baby was operated on hydrocephalus due to germinal matrix bleeding. After two months of implantation of venticuloperitoneal shunt peripheral insufficiency of the system was emerged. During the shunt revision extensive knot formation became visible. We simply cut the catheter above the knot and the working shunt was replaced into the abdominal cavity. The postoperative course was uneventful... tovább »
