OBJECTIVES To report 3 new cases of akinetic mutism, a clinical syndrome defined by silent immobility with preserved visual alertness not accountable by lesion of the areas and/or effector pathways of speech and voluntary movements. MATERIAL AND METHODS Anatomopathological studies were performed in Cases 1 and 2; clinical follow-up, EEG, angiography and(More)
The case of a patient with paralysis of the lateral gaze to the left, paresis of both eyes when he tried to look upwards and a disfunction of the cerebellum to the left, is reported. During the evolution the paresia of both eyes when the patient looked upwards and the disfunction of the cerebellum disappeared, but the paralysis of the lateral gaze to the(More)
The aquatic toxicity of sulfaquinoxaline (SQO) and sulfaguanidine (SGD) was evaluated on the following test organisms: Daphnia magna (reproduction test), Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata, Scenedesmus dimorphus, Synecococcus leopoliensis (algal growth inhibition test) and Lemna gibba (duckweed growth inhibition test). Furthermore, the additivity of the two(More)
Myocardial localization of prenylamine (PNL), a well known antianginal drug, was studied by means of an autoradiographic technique to detect microscopical distribution of tritiated PNL (3H-PLN). Forty Wistar rats received 35 muCi/kg b. w. 3H-PNL i. p., the animals being killed 30 min after injection. Heart slices, 1 mm thick, were processed for both(More)
Myocardial infarction is considered the prime cause of death among adult diabetic patients. In a great number of cases, during myocardial infarction the patients don't feel pain or it is atypical. Diagnosis can be neglected, and mortality increases. In search of an explanation for the absence of pain in these patients, the authors studied the autonomic(More)
We report the clinical, SPET, immunohistochemical and DNA features of an early-onset familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD) in an Argentine pedigree of South American indian ethnic background. Pedigree spans 5 generations comprising more than 110 biological relatives. Clinical data supported the diagnosis of early onset FAD (mean age at onset 38.9 years) in 10(More)
The studies of the hemispheric functional asymmetries in human brain began last century with Dax, Gall, Brocca and Wernicke's observations, demonstrating that language functions belong specially to the left hemisphere. Recent anatomic review were published by Flechsig and von Economo; Geschwing and Levitsky (1968) gave to these observations statistical(More)
