Classification of granulomatous inflammation based on morphologic criteria. These are epitheloid, histiocytic, foreign-body, necrobiotic and mixed inflammatory granuloma.

[Transvaginal ultrasound examination of embryo development in early pregnancy (sono-embryology) II. central nervous system]

CSABAY László, SZABÓ István, NÉMET János, PAPP Zoltán

[In the second part of their paper, the authors look over the most important phases of the development of the central nervous system during the first trimester of pregnancy - especially considering the stages, which can be differentiated with a high resolution transvaginal transducer. The closed neural tube is developing at days 40 to 44 by the closure of the posterior neuropore, however at this time no brain structures can be detected by ultrasound. During the 7th week the three primary brain... tovább »

[Laparoscopic varicocelectomy]

HOLMAN Endre, TÓTH Csaba, PÁSZTOR Imre, FICSÓR Ervin, PAPP Ferenc

[ With the spreading use of the laparoscope in the urological surgery laparoscopic varicocelectomy may become an alternative treatment of varicocele. The method can be advantageous mainly for patients with bilateral cases compared to the open operation. The authors report on two cases that have been the first urological laparoscopic operations in Hungary.]

[Vascular surgical aspects of small bowel ischaemia]

DÓBI István

[A brief account is given of acute and chronic diseases underlying the disorders of blood supply to the small bowel. In cases of acute disorders, considering the diagnostic difficulties involved, the author stresses the importance of commencing of a vasodilatator treatment immediately after the tentative diagnosis has been reached based on the first suspicious symptomes, and also requiring angiography to render the accurate diagnosis. This is the only possibility to increase (without... tovább »

[Cardiovascular effects of sleep-related breathing disorders, a review]

VÁRDI Visy Katalin

[The acute and chronic cardiovascular effects of sleep related breathing disorders are summarized in this review. Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is characterized by recurrent upper airway collapse during inspiration. The resulting asphyxia causes hypoxia and arousal. The vigorous inspiratory efforts produce falls in blood pressure coinciding with each effort (pulsus paradoxus). A rise in blood pressure is seen concurrently with each termination of apnoea and arousal. Bradycardia induced by... tovább »

[Evaluation of one hundered cancer cases in the practice of a general practicioner]

KISS László

[The author, working as a general practicioner in Czecho-Slovakia, gives an analysis of one hundred malignant tumour patients. In 31 cases the tumours have been in favourable position, and it would have been possible to set up early diagnosis in the general practice. The early diagnosis has actually happened only in 15 cases. The tumor has been verified at an advenced stage in 16 cases (2 of them have been inoperable). Delay has occured in two cases because of the nature of the cancer; in one... tovább »

[Predicting restenosis after coronary angioplasty by very early dobutamine stress test]

VÉRTES András, KOLONICS István, NAGY András, HANKÓCZY Judit, PALIK Imre, KELTAI Mátyás

[Increasing dose of intravenous dobutamine infusion and bicycle exercise test was used in patients with angina pectoris before and after successful coronary angioplasty to predict the development of restenosis. Ten patients were enrolled (mean age 55.9). Before PTCA, DST was positive in 9 of the 10 patients. This was similar during maximal bicycle exercise test. After successful PTCA, DST remained negative in one, became negative in four, and remained positive in five patients. The day after... tovább »

[Somatostatinoma of the duodenum]

JUNG János

[A malignant endocrine tumor of the middle part of the duodenum is reported in a 58-year old male patient. The tumor was examined with immunohistochemistry and was found to contain predominantly somatostatin-immunoreactive cells with rare cells showing glucagon and HCG immunoreactivity. Microscopically, the tumor had mixed architecture, with a trabeculo-glandular pattern. The first (frozen section) examination suggested a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma. ]

OROSZ Éva

[I have narrowed down the questions I received in advance: what are the main challenges facing the Hungarian health sector? I could only formulate additional questions as answers or in part instead of answers. ]

[Correspondence]

KÖVES Péter

["Let's play cards"; you could say it's a collective gamble that costs a lot of money and the payoff is as uncertain as a dog's dinner. Everyone expects a lot from it: we, the primary care doctors (at present, district, general practitioners and family doctors in the process of metamorphosis), and the patients, who are increasingly waiting outside the doors of our surgeries. ]

[Reflection]

SAS Géza

["Money or Life!?" Our work as doctors has always been closely linked to philosophical and social problems, but often - unfortunately - even to daily politics. I am thinking here, for example, of the debates surrounding abortion or euthanasia, where only one thing can be said for sure: there is no solution that is acceptable to everyone.]

[About the same thing elsewhere, in a different tone]

ANDRÁS László

[It was a gesture of thanks and appreciation that a few days after the publication of the 1992/6 regulation on general practitioners, senior staff from the Ministry of Public Welfare and the OTF presented and discussed it with their colleagues at the LAM Club. Naturally, this was done only after the regulation had been published. They did not receive the same recognition and thanks when they made the same gesture to their colleagues sitting as Members of Parliament in the Committee on Social... tovább »

KÖVESI Ervin

[With the establishment of diplomatic relations and the start of economic cooperation, the Republic of South Africa has come to the fore. Public opinion at home has been watching President De Klerk's political reform efforts with a similar interest, which were endorsed by a large majority of white voters in a referendum held in mid-March.]

[Premises and standards in medical ethics]

LŐRINCZ Jenő

[The definition of medical ethics seems simple: 'the right conduct of medical life' (in more modern terms: the rules of medical behaviour in professional situations). It follows József Imre's Medical Ethics, published in 1925; a problematic that pervades the principles and practice of medicine as a whole, an expanding repertoire, in the sense of 'humanistic medicine', as advocated by László Levendel (also), in which the focus is on patient-centredness rather than disease-centredness.]

BÁNHEGYI Csaba, BORVENDÉG János

[Every student hears a lot of interesting stories in the various lectures during their university years. Most of the stories are, of course, about the successes and failures of medicine. But the stories you hear in forensic medicine lectures stand out somewhat. ]
