In 25 patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in various phases of the disease CT and NMR imaging of the brain were done at the same times and the findings were related to clinical symptomatology. NMR imaging, in contrast to CT imaging, demonstrated even very small brain changes in the initial stage. The inflammatory-demyelinizing process begins(More)
The aim of this study is a clinical and electroencelographic analysis of those SSPE patients who suffered epileptic seizures in course of the disease. The material is based on an analysis of a computed database including 1180 case histories from multiple hospitalizations of 248 SSPE patients (141 males, 107 females) in years 1978-1995. The analysis was made(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Depression is one of the most common post-stroke complications, which could impair rehabilitation outcome and quality of life, and could also increase mortality after stroke. The aim of the present study was to assess the association between demographic, socioeconomic and clinical (stroke risk factors, type of stroke, location of(More)
Stroke units are being organised in Poland since 1997. To ensure easy access to stroke care, 120 specialised units need to be created. There were 23 stroke units in Poland in the year 2000. Only 12 of them fulfilled the criteria of a standard stroke unit. Significant differences in stroke fatality were noted between well- and as yet insufficiently organised(More)
Computer-assisted analysis was done of database containing 1180 records of 249 patients with SSPE hospitalized repeatedly at the I Dept. of Neurology using the EPI INFO 6 computer system recommended by the WHO. Boys were slightly prevalent in these cases (58%). The results of the analysis showed a falling incidence of SSPE among children born after 1976(More)
Poland has one of the highest rates of death due to stroke in Europe, which, in contrast to many industrialized countries, has not changed since at least 1984. To improve this unfavorable situation, the entire approach to stroke management needs to be recognized. For this purpose, an analysis of stroke epidemiology regarding regional differences was one of(More)
The modern classification is presented based on genetic criteria of the group of degenerative nervous system diseases inherited as autosomal dominant trait and called collectively spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA). They belong mostly to the class of diseases of similar mutation mechanism in which amplification is present of the trinucleotide sequence (CAG)n.(More)
The analysis of disease courses and survival times of 132 cases of SSPE treated by various methods in the I Department of Neurology, Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology, in years 1980-1989 is reported. Follow-up data were obtained during control examinations of patients or from an inquiry answered by parents or doctors at the place of residence of the(More)
Spinocerebellar ataxia is a group of diseases with autosomal dominant inheritance heterogenous both clinically and genetically. So called dynamic mutations underlie most these nosological units. The clinical patterns of various SCA types have not yet been defined completely. The purpose of the present report was description of the typical symptoms and signs(More)
