[The histological structure of human muscle spindles and innervation ]

ABONYI Eszter, STIPULA Magda

[We used a large muscle biopsy from our clinic to investigate how muscle spindles behave in different muscle diseases. However, in many cases, the muscle fragments excised for diagnostic purposes did not contain muscle spindles or only a small number of them. The data in the literature refer mainly to animal muscle spindles (see further as ms). Therefore, the histopathological evaluation of the observed muscle spindle images was difficult. There have been few studies on pathological lesions of human ms. For this reason, we aimed to collect first of all experiences on normal human io. The present study deals with the structure and innervation of normal human io. Our next paper will deal with the development of the ms, and our third paper will discuss the pathophysiological changes of the ms in different neurologically important muscle diseases. ]

[Arrangement of the Rorschach test items]

PETHŐ Bertalan

[In summary, the record paints a picture of a mentally mildly and unevenly retarded, eccentric, self-contained, not very well hidden from others and ambivalently experienced autistic world of a psychopath. The most recognisable is the antisocial psychopath described by Boss (1913), characterised by passivity and lack of self-control, and the data on the quality of his individual world. Circular psychosis, schizophrenia and organic psychosyndrome can already be ruled out by conventional evaluation. In the course of the test, a certain positive development of the personality is to be expected, but there are serious forces working against this, such as the F-unbest. descriptio at the end of the test and the TA response, which emerged in the post-test during the relaxation of censorship, and which indicates a serious generational-familial conflict. In any case, psychotherapy, especially on the basis of further exploration, now gaining new thematic fodder, has an absolute indication, because it allows us to put into practice the gains that a more human, comprehensive and deeper understanding of the patient beyond the label "oligophrenia" or "postprocessual schizoidia" has given us in the extended test evaluation.]

[Data for submicroscopy of panencephalitis. B Intranuclear inclusions, virus-like particles in demyelination and its course]

ÓVÁRY Imre, GOMBI Róza, BENKŐ Károly, SORSZEGI Pál, GÖDÉNY Sára, KAPPÉTER István

[In the second stage of processing of biopsy material from the right peristriatai of the right peripheral area of a patient with panencephalitis, the intranuclear inclusions found are more often classified as group II, less often as group I, according to Bouteille's classification, usually resembling a twisted cotton-mat ring with a clear halo around it. Osmiophilic, electrodense-centred, "viral-mimetic" particles are found in large numbers, most often in neurocytes. Their number suggests that the particulate is predominantly transported to the extracellular space from the disintegration of neurocytes. In our study, 27% of the particles are able to reach the CSF space. This puts the extraction of particles from liqur in perspective. The myelin degradation starts from the Ranvier's confinement and follows an axofugal direction. Electrophysiologically, as well as clinicopathologically, the study of panencephalitis is attributed to pathological informative, pathological integrative, and pathological energetic factors. Further studies are ongoing.]

[Neurological complications of multiple myeloma]

AMBRÓZY György, HINDY Iván

[1. Authors describe neurological complications caused by multiple myeloma and plasmocytoma. They were the first symptom of disease in 15% of the total patient population [53] and in 33% of cases with neurological complications. 2. The clinical symptoms, pathogenesis and course of 21 patients with multiple myeloma with neurological complications and 3 patients with plasmocytoma are analysed. 3. X-ray examination, cytological tests (bone marrow smear, bone biopsy) and other laboratory tests (red blood cell count, peripheral blood count, serum and cerebrospinal fluid paper and immunoelectrophoresis) are used to detect early stage disease. Bence-Jones protein was found in urine in only 1/3 of the cases reported here. 4. Un. complex (non-specific robotic, irradiation, cytostatic, in some cases surgical or conservative orthopaedic) treatment of neurological complications was associated with a disease duration of approximately 21.2 months (living patients) and 26.4 months (dead patients) from the time of admission. ]

[Vaccines against COVID-19 pandemic]

FALUS András, SZEKANECZ Zoltán

[The rapidly spreading SARS-CoV2 respiratory virus has evoked an epidemic with serious aftermath around the world. In addition to the health effects, the global economic damage is actually unpredictable. At the same time, the pandemic has launched a series of unprecedented collaborative scientific research, including the development of vaccines. This study summarizes up-to-date information on vaccines, immune memory, and some emerging clinical effects.]

[A short chronicle of three decades ]

KAPRONCZAY Katalin

[Hungarian professional periodicals started quite late in European context. Their publish­ing, editing and editorial philosophy were equally influenced by specific historical and political situations. Certain breaking points of history resulted in termina­tion of professional journals (War of In­de­pendence 1848-1849, First and Se­cond World Wars), however there were pe­riods, which instigated the progress of sciences and founding of new scientific journals. Both trends were apparent in years after the fall of former Hungarian regime in 1990. The structure of book and journal publishing has changed substantially, some publishers fell “victim” others started successfully as well. The latters include the then-established publishing house Literatura Medica and its own scientific journal, Lege Artis Me­di­cinae (according to its subtitle: New Hun­garian Medical Herald) issued first in 1990. Its appearance enhanced significantly the medical press market. Its scientific publications compete with articles of the well-established domestic medical journals however its philosophy set brand-new trends on the market. Concerning the medical community, it takes on its problems and provides a forum for them. These problems are emerging questions in health care, economy and prevention, in close interrelation with system of public health institutions, infrastructure and situation of those providing individual health services. In all of them, Lege Artis Medicinae follows consequently the ideas of traditional social medicine.]

[Focus on Lege Artis Medicinae (LAM)]

VASAS Lívia, GEGES József

[Three decades ago, LAM was launched with the goal of providing scientific information about medicine and its frontiers. From the very beginning, LAM has also concerned a special subject area while connecting medicine with the world of art. In the palette of medical articles, it remained a special feature to this day. The analysis of the history of LAM to date was performed using internationally accepted publication guidelines and scientific databases as a pledge of objectivity. We examined the practice of LAM if it meets the main criteria, the professional expectations of our days, when publishing contents of the traditional printed edition and its electronic version. We explored the visibility of articles in the largest bibliographic and scientific metric databases, and reviewed the LAM's place among the Hun­ga­rian professional journals. Our results show that in recent years LAM has gained international reputation des­pite publishing in Hungarian spoken by a few people. This is due to articles with foreign co-authors as well as references to LAM in articles written exclusively by foreign researchers. The journal is of course full readable in the Hungarian bibliographic databases, and its popularity is among the leading ones. The great virtue of the journal is the wide spectrum of the authors' affiliation, with which they cover almost completely the Hungarian health care institutional sys­tem. The special feature of its columns is enhanced by the publication of writings on art, which may increase Hungarian and foreign interest like that of medical articles.]

[Association between cyclothymic affective temperament and hypertension]

NEMCSIK János, BATTA Dóra, KŐRÖSI Beáta, RIHMER Zoltán

[Affective temperaments (cyclothymic, hypertymic, depressive, anxious, irritable) are stable parts of personality and after adolescent only their minor changes are detectable. Their connections with psychopathology is well-described; depressive temperament plays role in major depression, cyclothymic temperament in bipolar II disorder, while hyperthymic temperament in bipolar I disorder. Moreover, scientific data of the last decade suggest, that affective temperaments are also associated with somatic diseases. Cyclothymic temperament is supposed to have the closest connection with hypertension. The prevalence of hypertension is higher parallel with the presence of dominant cyclothymic affective temperament and in this condition the frequency of cardiovascular complications in hypertensive patients was also described to be higher. In chronic hypertensive patients cyclothymic temperament score is positively associated with systolic blood pressure and in women with the earlier development of hypertension. The background of these associations is probably based on the more prevalent presence of common risk factors (smoking, obesity, alcoholism) with more pronounced cyclothymic temperament. The scientific importance of the research of the associations of personality traits including affective temperaments with somatic disorders can help in the identification of higher risk patient subgroups.]

[Dysphagiafelmérések akut stroke-ban]

SZABÓ Pál Tamás, MÛHELYI Viktória, BÉRES-MOLNÁR Katalin Anna, KOVÁCS Andrea, BALOGH Zoltán, FOLYOVICH András

[Stroke associated dysphagia can have serious consequences such as aspiration pneumonia. The Hungarian guideline on nutritional therapy for stroke patients recommends dysphagia assessment, as early screening can optimize disease outcome and hospital cost. Thus far, this may be the first study in Hungarian that has documented a systematic review about the available validated dysphagia assessments of acute stroke. Purpose – The aim of this study was to summarize the instrumentally validated bedside dysphagia screening tools for acute stroke patients, which were published in the last twenty years. Our objective was to describe the characteristics of the validation studies, examine their study design, and sample the sub-tests and the diagnostic accuracy of the assessments. A systematic research was carried out of the literature between 2001 and 2021 in eight scientific databases with search terms appropriate to our objectives. Subjects of the study – 652 articles were found and were reduced to eight. We made a comparative analysis of these. The GUSS test reached a high level of sensitivity compared to the others. In our study sample, the prevalence of instrumentally confirmed dysphagia among acute stroke patients was 56.1%. The focus and the composition of the analyzed studies differed and posed problems such as the ambiguity of the concept of dysphagia, the difference in outcome indicators, or the timing of screening. The GUSS test, which offers domestic management, is a suitable tool for the Hungarian clinical use.]
