We present imaging evidence of the spreading of cortical edema with reversibly restricted water diffusion from the left occipital to the temporoparietal cortex in persistent visual migraine aura in a 58-year-old man. The right-sided visual field defect lasting for 15 days was associated with discoupling of glucose metabolism and blood flow and the decreased(More)
Pathologic processes affecting the brain vessels may damage cerebral vasodilatory capacity. Early detection of cerebral dysfunction plays an important role in the prevention of cerebrovascular diseases. In recent decades acetazolamide (AZ) has frequently been used for this purpose. In the present work the mechanism of action and the previous studies are(More)
Resting cerebral glucose metabolism was assessed by 18[F]-fluorodeoxyglucose in 11 Down syndrome patients. Standardized uptake values were determined on a pixel-by-pixel basis from the measured tissue-activity data. The results revealed a mean overall 18[F]-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the Down syndrome patients close to that observed in the control group,(More)
Cerebrovascular disease is a major public health problem in Eastern European countries. A Hungarian post-stroke population was examined to estimate the rate of dementia, the risk factors for cognitive impairment, and the applicability of a recently established Canadian diagnostic checklist in this cohort. Chronic cerebrovascular outpatients were screened(More)
The authors have analyzed and compared the results of the 99mTc-ECD-SPECT and FDG-PET examinations, performed in alert state, of 12 children suffering from infantile (9 subjects) or atypical (3 subjects) autism. In addition to frontally increased FDG metabolism, a decreased blood flow with left-sided dominance was found bifrontally and bitemporally in the(More)
Involvement of the brain is one of the most important complications of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). To investigate the correlation between abnormal cranial MRI findings and age, duration of SLE, neuropsychiatric (NP) manifestations, hypertensive status, and the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies (PA) in patients with SLE we evaluated the MRI(More)
Depressive symptoms can often be observed after stroke. We prospectively evaluated patients at a stroke unit in order to determine the occurrence and severity of depressive symptoms in the acute phase of stroke in 82 patients 7 +/- 2 days after admission to the stroke unit. Severity of stroke was evaluated by the Scandinavian and Orgogozo scales and the(More)
The potassium staining method is based on the formation of potassium cobaltnitrite crystals after the treatment by sodium cobaltnitrite of brain tissue. The degree of staining correlates with the distinct potassium content of infracted and non-infarcted brain areas. The aim of the present study was to prove that potassium staining technique is a reliable(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebrovascular reactivity measurements are believed to be a helpful tool for selecting patients who are at higher risk for hemodynamic strokes. The aim of this study was to compare cerebral vasoreactivity among patients suffering from internal carotid artery stenosis of different severity (asymptomatic stenosis, asymptomatic occlusion,(More)
