Subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) has a high mortality and morbidity rate. Early SAH diagnosis allows the early treatment of a ruptured cerebral aneurysm, which improves the prognosis. Diagnostic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analyses may be performed after a negative computed tomography scan, but the precise analytical methods to be used have been debated. Here,(More)
The case of an 11 year old girl with three line type of polycythaemia vera, with 4 cm splenomegaly and a plethoric complexion is presented. Peripheral blood values were as follows: RBC: 7.75 x 10(12)/l, Hb: 18.8 g/l, WBC: 15.2 x 10(9)/l, platelets: 920 x 10(9)/l. Serum erythropoietin level: < 1 mU/ml. In vitro, erythroid colonies developed from the bone(More)
Recent advances in ultrasound imaging suggested endoarticular ultrasound imaging of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in combination with TMJ-arthroscopy as a new diagnostic method. Our investigations were performed on human cadavers, in combination with traditional TMJ-arthroscopy. During our investigations, the main articular structures were identified:(More)
Fracture of the alveolar process is a common injury. In some cases, traditional fixation may not be possible. The teeth needed for splinting or mandibulo-maxillary fixation may be missing. The fracture line and soft tissue injury may jeopardize the blood supply of the broken bone. In these extreme and rare situations, the best rehabilitation is needed to(More)
We measured the level of serum haptoglobin, transferrin, alfa-I antitrypsin, orosomucoid, beta-2-microglobulin, ferritin in the case of 30 children (aged 11-16 years) with juvenile chronic arthritis. We divided the patients into two groups. In the first group there were 15 patients with active disease under continuous treatment and in clinical remission (We(More)
The authors are dealing with the therapy problems of disseminated Langerhans cell histiocytosis on the basis of seven patients. In the treatment the combination of Vinblastine and Prednisolone was usually applied. The therapy was successful in four cases. The most significant prognostic factors were found to be the presence of organ dysfunction (mainly(More)
Between 1987-1992 in the Department of Pediatric Oncology of Child Health Center at Miskolc the appearance of nephropathy caused by high dose Ifosfamide was studied (using different protocols) in patients with childhood malignancy. From 7 patients in 5 children nephrotoxicity were developed. In consequence of Ifosfamide rickets 2 patients are given(More)
The application of cytostatics has brought about a breakthrough in the treatment of childhood haematological malignancies in the past 20 years. Chemotherapy appears to be least successful in the rare, low and very high mitotic index diseases, which often have an enormous tumour-burden. The suitability of chemotherapy in minimal residual leukaemia is also of(More)
