We report 11 cases of vermian partial agenesis without posterior fossa cyst or hemispheric abnormalities. Characteristic MR signs were: absence of the posterior lobe, hypoplasia of the anterior lobe, a narrow sagittal cleft separating the hemispheres (“buttocks sign”) and fourth ventricle deformity. The main clinical signs were complex oculomotor(More)
The introduction of new treatment methods has stimulated the identification of further prognostic factors capable of defining the clinical and biological characteristics of the tumor type in question and improving treatment programming. The aim of this study was to identify which characteristics of the host and tumor are of prognostic value in relation to(More)
Catatonic syndromes could accompany a variety of psychiatric and medical conditions. The most common conditions underlying catatonia are affective disorders followed by schizophrenia, but several medical conditions including intoxications affecting the central nervous system can also present with catatonic signs and symptoms.

Health surveillance of exposed workers has revealed numerous cases of back disorders with consequent temporary or permanent limitations of working activity.(More)
Variations in cephalo-rachidian fluid pressure can be transmitted to the middle ear through the cochlear aqueduct (CA). This gives us a non-invasive manner to evaluate any changes in fluid pressure by measuring middle ear impedance (impedancemetry). The present study compared two indirect methods for measuring intracranial pressure: a) impedancemetry during(More)
The indications for myringoplasty in children has always been a controversial subject since many authors feel the high frequency of the phlogistic auricular processes in children constitute an unfavorable prognostic factor to success of the procedure. The authors present the results obtained in 23 patients under 17 years of age who had undergone(More)
The paper analyzes the 8 KHz threshold in subjects with noise-induced hearing loss. The study group consisted of 315 subjects occupationally exposed to noise and suffering from acoustic trauma, which was considered as a mean threshold of more than 25 dB at 2, 3 and 4 KHz. The mean shape of audiograms was characterized by a neurosensory deficit which was(More)
