In our study, we evaluated 249 patients with refractory seizures using video-EEG monitoring. In this sample, we identified 56 (22.5%) patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures - PNES only. Spontaneous seizures were recorded in 49 (87%) patients with PNES. Suggestive seizure induction using intravenous saline placebo was successful in 77.1% of induced(More)
Skin toxicity is the most important side effect of cetuximab administration, but little is known about the eye toxicity, including periorbital skin. We present here four cases of patients with metastatic colorectal carcinoma treated with the combination of cetuximab, irinotecan, 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin who had manifestation of complications in the eye(More)
OBJECTIVE There is no universally accepted definition of pseudo-intractable epilepsy. Pseudo-intractability means that the resistance to treatment is, in fact, caused by clinical errors. The purpose of our study was to identify the reasons for intractability and subsequent effective therapeutic management approaches in a group of patients with established(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to assess the number of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) in our patients with a refractory seizure disorder, to determine the 'typical' PNES semiology using video-EEG monitoring and describe other PNES parameters. METHODS We evaluated prospectively 596 patients with pharmacoresistant seizures. All these patients(More)
A 73-year-old male with a history of bladder carcinoma presented with conjunctival melanoma that was excised. Multiple lung metastases were detected during diagnostic work-up. Because of uncertainty about the histology of the metastatic lung tumor, a biopsy was performed that revealed a third primary non-small cell carcinoma of the lung. This case(More)

UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to determine exact visual functions (log MAR [minimal angle of resolution] and CS [contrast sensitivity]) and to evaluate corneal topographic maps in patients with established (by means of laboratory and biopsy examinations) Sjogren's Syndrome, and to determine the difference in subjective symptoms before and after(More)
Authors present the possibilities of different examination methods in cases of intraocular expansions and specific diagnostic methods to determine the actual etiology of the intraocular process in the posterior segment in particular. Of special concern to authors are cases, as is e.g. vitreous hemorrhage, in whose the standard examination methods are not(More)
The implantation of the intraocular anterior chamber phakic toric lens (PTIOL) Artisan, a product of the Ophtec company, is one of the most up-to-date methods of the correction of higher degree of myopic as well as hyperopic astigmatism. The authors refer about the results of PTIOL Artisan implantation in 6 patients (10 eyes). The major indication was the(More)
