In Wilson's disease a disturbed glucose metabolism especially in striatal and cerebellar areas has been reported. This is correlated with the severity of extrapyramidal motor symptoms (EPS). These findings are only based on a small number of patients. Up to now it is unknown whether EPS are caused by various patterns of disturbed basal ganglia glucose(More)
Die Diagnostik CT-negativer Subarachnoidalblutungen (SAB) stellt eine besondere klinische Herausforderung dar. Die Lumbalpunktion mit Liquordiagnostik ist hierbei die diagnostische Methode der Wahl. Die Diagnose einer SAB basiert neben dem visuellen Nachweis eines blutigen bzw. xanthochrom verfärbten Liquors auf der Liquorzytologie mit dem Nachweis von(More)
Supplementation of pre-enrichment broth and enrichment broth media with ferrioxamine E (1 microgram/ml) significantly improved the recovery of Salmonella from artificially or naturally contaminated foods. Based on the selectivity of ferrioxamine E, Salmonella enteritidis and S. typhimurium could be isolated also from various mixed cultures (one Salmonella(More)
The diagnostically and in regard to surveillance rather comprehensively recorded salmonellosis bear the character of a model of zoonotic diarrhoeal diseases. Whereas those serovars predominantly adapted to human beings or animal species are without any importance in this connection, such serovars with own epizootic processes in different animal species with(More)
Salmonella strains belonging to subspecies I to VI were investigated for colony color when grown on Rambach agar. Most strains of Salmonella subspecies I, II, IV, and VI behaved as described. All strains of Salmonella subspecies IIIa, IIIb, and V produced beta-D-galactosidase and blue-green colonies which could not be distinguished in color from Escherichia(More)
In the period from 2-10 August 1991 an outbreak caused by S. paratyphi B occurred in five rural areas of the district of Leipzig. Eleven patients and one excreter were involved, and mild forms of disease were observed in most cases. In three of the patients a mixed infection with S. litchfield was diagnosed. Moreover at the same time 21 cases of enteritis(More)
Patients suffering from Wilson's disease (WD) can be divided into two main subgroups: neurologic and nonneurologic WD. We measured passive and active fine-motor abilities of 37 WD patients and 24 randomly selected volunteers. The measurement was based on a standardized test set in a defined environment for detection of disturbed finemotor control. The set(More)
Es werden die infektionsserologischen Daten von 22 Patienten mit dem Verdacht auf das Vorliegen einer Neurosyphilis vorgestellt. In zwei Fällen wurde der Verdacht nicht bestätigt, in 20 Fällen eine Neurosyphilis nachgewiesen. Von 17 Patienten, bei denen auch Borrelia-spezifische Antikörper bestimmt wurden, hatten 9 einen auffälligen IgG- und ein Patient(More)
Opinions differ as to the advantages of the 180 degrees and the 360 degrees techniques concerning myocardial scintigraphy with 201Tl. Following our own encouraging experiences with the 180 degrees technique, we have looked for cases in bone scintigraphy where reconstructions from a semicircle could be advantageous over a full circle reconstruction. There(More)
