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)
We report a patient who had episodes of recurrent peripheral nerve pressure palsies. Electrodiagnostically, we found a clear decrease of nerve conduction velocity in affected and unaffected nerves. All the patient's relatives showed entirely normal clinical and electrodiagnostic findings. Histopathologically, there were extensive irregularities of the(More)
Clinical, electrophysiologic and biopsy findings as well as studies of blood group markers in a family with hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies (HNPP) are reported. There was an autosomal dominant trait without genetic linkage between the HNPP gene and blood group markers controlled by chromosome 1. Reduced motor and sensory nerve(More)
