[About the pseudomyopathic form of polymyositis]


[In the case of slow-onset proximal muscle atrophy and weakness, the neurologist thinks mainly of dystrophia musculorum progressiva (DMP). However, the wider use of muscle biopsy and electromyography has shown that many neurogenic and myogenic pathologies can cause such a "pseudomyopathic" syndrome. Among these, I deal in the present work with chronic polymyositis (PM). ]

Lege Artis Medicinae


FELKAI Péter, KOVÁCS Erzsébet

[The authors describe the basic ideas of travel medicine, as a newly introduced interdiscipline of the medical science in Hungary. Recently, this segment is considered to be the part of Insurance Medicine, on the other hand the methods and the practice of the travel medicine is based on the other medical specialities’ knowledge. Due to the growing number of travellers in our country as well as the consequences of the joining Hungary to EU, travel medicine could play an important role in the improvement of the Hungarian travellers’ attitude to their health care status, the prevention against the emerged infectious diseases, and in the medical assistance for the international tourism. Travel medicine also a good guideline for the fit-for-travel considerations, made by the GPs. Hungary with its advantageous geographical position appears to be an excellent stopover for any medical evacuation from East European or other surrounding countries. That is why we would like to establish a first travel medicine facility in central Europe. It is expectable that the Hungarian travellers require more and more information regarding to their health care possibilities and prevention during their trip. The first authentic person is being asked by the patients’ are GPs. The GP’s tasks are: diagnosis and the treatment of travel related diseases, the pre-travel advices. All the mentioned factors are a new challenge for the GPs in Hungary.]

["Third Way" hospice care in France]


[At the beginning of the year, I spent a month in Paris studying hospice care. The hospice movement in the English Saxon countries has a history going back several decades. Christopher Hospice was founded by Cicely Saunders in 1967, but the work of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and Mother Teresa of Calcutta is also well known in Hungary. In France, this movement only began to develop in the 1980s, so the relatively recent experience there can be very instructive for us too. ]
