[A pseudopapillitis fluorescein angiográfiás diagnosztikája ]

WEINSTEIN Pál1, BROOSER Gábor1

MARCH 01, 1969

Clinical Neuroscience - 1969;22(03)

[Fluorescein angiography is very useful for differentiating between congestive papillitis and pseudopapillitis. In congestive papillitis the papilla is fluorescent, in pseudopapillitis this fluorescence is not detectable on the papilla.]

[Effect of cervical lymphatic dysfunction on EEG after tonsillectomy]

OBÁL Ferenc, SZABON József, BÖRCSÖK Edit, FÖLDI Mihály

[Tonsillectomy shifts the EEG in the direction of slowing down, because this operation leads to a transient disturbance of cervical lymph flow and thus to a transient subclinical lymphostatic encephalopathy. ]

[Reversible internuclearis of traumatic origin ophthalmoplegia]

TEMESVÁRI Péter

[An 18-year-old young man developed internuclear ophthalmoplegia with rapid regression after trauma, among other microsymptoms. After reviewing the hypothesized pathomechanism, the author points out that in seemingly trivial traumas that do not involve the skull or spine, certain predisposing factors may lead to brainstem lesions with asymptomatic or only suggestive clinical signs, which may be of importance in subsequent differential diagnosis or specialist opinion. ]

[Analysis of violent sexual offences with special reference to psycho-cultural aspects]

SZABÓ Miklós, BURIS László

[The authors have processed data from the Institute of Forensic Medicine of the University of Debrecen Medical School on medical expert opinions on violent sexual offences for the years 1955-1965. The perpetrators of these offences are most frequently among the 21-30 year olds. 55.89% of offenders had some form of mental defect. Factors that may be a motive for committing sex offences are significantly present in the indicators without such a discrepancy. The vast majority of the victims of these crimes were juveniles, 37.29% of whom were mentally ill. In all cases of sexual offences, authors consider it important to conduct a detailed mental health assessment of both the offenders and the victims of the offence. ]

[Wegener's granulomatosis involving the nervous system ]

HALMAY Zsuzsa, VATHY István

[The authors describe a case of Wegener's granulomatosis in which, in addition to the tympanic pathological lesions, extensive vasculitis and granulomatous inflammation of the meninges and brain matter, as well as granulomatous perineuritis, were observed. The neurological manifestations of Wegener's granulomatosis involvement of the nervous system. ]

[Comments on childhood ammentiform psychosis mechanisms of child psychosis]

ZSADÁNYI Ottó, KLEININGER Ottó, GŐDÉNY Sára

[An 11-year-old child with an aetiologically unclear clinical presentation classified as amentiform psychosis is analysed. Results of EEG, PEG, Psychological-testing series are compared with clinical findings over a follow-up of nearly 2 years. In their opinion, neither bacteriological-virological nor psychogenic stress effects can be demonstrated due to currently available technical conditions, so that perhaps pubertal hormone disruption resulted in an anatomical functional transient harmony disturbance that was expressed in clinical psychosis, anatomical-electrical in relation to bihemispheric asynchrony. It is hypothesized that interhemispherially transmitted informatio asynchrony, which also seems to be associated with hormonal disturbances during puberty, may result in a disturbance of realistic perception of the external world and may cause transient psychiatric disturbances. This seems to be confirmed by the return to equilibrium of anatomical, electrical (PEG, EEG.) activity and recovery without residual symptoms.]

[Clinical data for permeability of the blood-ventricular barrier]

WEINSTEIN Pál, FORGÁCH József

[The authors used Amsler and Huber's electrical zero point method to investigate the permeability of the blood-retinal fluid barrier to fluorescein in 150 cases (iritis, glaucoma, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chorioretinitis, myxoedema, heterochromia iridis, Horner's syndrome, contusio bulbi, retinal haemorrhages, allergic eye diseases, multiple sclerosis, ggl. ciliare, ggl. stellatum novocain blockade). Glaucoma infl. chron. and gl. simplex, normal permeability was found. In acute attacks, there was no significant increase in permeability, but after the attack, blood-vascular barrier permeability was significantly increased. In cases of contusio bulbi, Horner's syndrome, ggl.ciliare, ggl. stellatum novocain blockade, permeability increased only if ocular tension decreased at the same time, suggesting the possibility of so-called secretory blockade (apparent increase in permeability according to Goldmann.) In cases of retinitis hypertonica, anaemia with a significant increase in permeability was often observed. In cases of anaemia perniciosa, permeability was also increased (anoxic phenomenon). After local administration of pilocarpine, histamine, adrenaline and after i.v. injection of hydase, no difference in permeability was found. ]
