The saitohin (STH) gene is located in intron 9 of the tau protein gene. It has been postulated that the R allele of Q7R polymorphism at the Saitohin gene is over-represented in the homozygous state in sporadic Alzheimer's disease (AD). Tau protein was implicated in AD pathophysiology and the tau gene haplotype is probably connected with sporadic late-onset(More)
BACKGROUND Ischiofemoral impingement syndrome is characterized by a hip pain associated with abnormalities in quadriceps femoris muscle and ipsilaterally reduced distance between the lesser trochanter and the ischium. Thus far, the congenital variant of this entity has been reported exclusively in women. CASE REPORT We report a case of a 22-year old male(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) is an emerging therapeutic method in CTEPH. We aimed to prove the safety and efficacy of refined BPA driven by combined assessment of intra-arterial anatomy (IVUS/OCT) and physiology (pulmonary pressure ratio, PPR) in non-operable distal CTEPH. METHODS 11 pts (mean age 76, 59–84, 7 males) were(More)
Wilson's Disease (WD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder. The literature about proton MR spectroscopy (MRS) in WD is based mostly on data derived from patients undergoing treatment. The aim of this study was to identify brain metabolic changes in newly diagnosed WD patients using MRS to elucidate the pathomechanism of the cerebral pathology of WD. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The influence of sex hormones on immune system activity in multiple sclerosis (MS) has been suggested by clinical evidence. The aim of the study was to ana-lyse the pattern of sex hormones in MS women and to correlate the hormone pattern abnormalities to the disease course as well as to the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results.

BACKGROUND To assess and describe the variability of radiological presentations of fibrous cortical defects and non-ossifying fibromas in children and young adults. MATERIAL/METHODS Medical records of 28 patients (15 males, 13 females, mean age of 17 years) with a radiological diagnosis of cortical fibrous defect or non-ossifying fibroma were reviewed(More)
The aim of the study was to find differences in magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) which might facilitate differential diagnosis between tumour regrowth and a remnant tumour with present postradiation changes or postradiation necrosis in the vicinity of the postoperative bed, based on the assessment of the dynamics between two MRS, i.e. preoperative and(More)
Wilson’s disease (WD) is an autosomal recessive disorder and the WD heterozygote carriers (Hzc) should not exhibit symptoms of the disease. The aim of this study was to assess 12 WD Hzc by brain Proton MR Spectroscopy. In three cases, the levels of caeruloplasmin, and in one case, serum copper, were below our normal range. In two Hzc the aspartate and(More)
Osteoid osteoma has been traditionally treated by curettage and en bloc resection. These methods are now being replaced by low-invasive techniques. We present the description of a percutaneous thermoablation of a femoral neck osteoid osteoma performed under CT guidance in a 22-year-old female patient.
