Event-related synchronization (ERS) after self-paced, voluntary brisk movement of the right and left thumb was studied in 17 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and 17 age-matched control subjects. All patients were receiving L-DOPA and/or DOPA-agonists. The movement-offset-triggered EEG data were analyzed in the 12- to 16-Hz, 16- to 20-Hz, and 20- to(More)
Fifty-eight patients suffering from cerebrovascular ischaemic diseases were examined by means of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs). The early components during the first 50 msec were evaluated (N13, P15, N20, P28, CCT = N13-N20). The patients were divided into 4 groups according to the affected vascular region and the reversibility of the symptoms.(More)
The article describes the development of symptoms in a 40-year-old female patient who is a symptomatic carrier of X-linked adrenoleucodystrophy (ALD). ALD is characterized by impaired peroxisomal beta-oxidation of very long chain fatty acids and is associated with mutations of the ALD gene, resulting in a defective peroxisomal membrane-transport protein.(More)
Since multiple sclerosis (MS) and autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT) are presumed to be of autoimmune origin the correlation of these two diseases is of special interest. The aim of this study was to determine whether there are differences in the prevalence of thyroid disease with special emphasis on AIT compared with MS and normal subjects and whether the(More)
We report the case of a 69-year-old patient referred to our clinic because of mania. When examined by neuroradiological imaging, there were lesions seen appearing and disappearing in different regions of the brain during a period of 2 months. Differential diagnosis of these changing lesions, progressive severe illness, and the role of glucocorticoid therapy(More)
The anterior tibial syndrome is caused by primary or secondary ischemia of the tibial muscles group. Acute onset of intensive pain, swelling of the muscles and reddening of the skin are the clinical features of the syndrome. The muscles enzymes are raised. The definite diagnosis is established by the typical "silent-EMG". Surgical decompression within 24(More)
In 50 healthy subjects (23 female, 27 male, aged 18–81) and 24 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) (11 female, 13 male, aged 58–88) DHEAS and CRT plasma levels were studied. In normal subjects there was a clear negative correlation of DHEAS to age, while no significant age correlated decrease of CRT plasma levels was found. There was a significant(More)
