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)
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 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 Intraosseous lipoma is a very rare lesion, which constitutes not more than 0.1% of bone tumors. The introduction of cross-sectional imaging, especially MRI, seems to have increased the detection rate of these lesions. CASE REPORT The authors presented 6 cases of intraosseous lipomas in bones of the lower extremities. All lesions were detected(More)
Sialolithiasis is the most common disorder of major salivary glands. The main site of salivary stones' formation is submandibular gland, followed by parotid and sublingual gland. The aim of this article was to present current diagnostic imaging modalities carried out in patients suspected with salivary stones on the basis of own material and review of(More)
BACKGROUND Blow-out fracture of the orbit is a common injury. However, not many cases are associated with massive subcutaneous emphysema. Even fewer cases are caused by minor trauma or are associated with barotrauma to the orbit due to sneezing, coughing, or vomiting. The authors present a case of blow-out fracture complicated by extensive subcutaneous and(More)
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)
We present the case of a 77-year-old woman with corticobasal degeneration (CBD) which still is an underdiagnosed neurodegenerative disease. She revealed stiffness and dystonia of the right hand at the disease onset. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT-HMPAO) showed changes in the left cerebral(More)
BACKGROUND Tumours of the metatarsus are rare and more frequently affect males. Relevant literature to date has mostly been confined to case reports. Single cases of the following tumours have been discussed: giant cell tumour, metastases (lung, prostate gland), chondroblastoma, aneurysmal bone cyst, Ewing's sarcoma, clear cell carcinoma, osteosarcoma,(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of methods for screening for retrocochlear pathologies based on auditory evoked brainstem responses (ABRs). The study compared the sensitivity, specificity, and effectiveness of these 3 techniques. MATERIAL AND METHODS The methods were: (i) standard ABR utilizing click-evoked responses,(More)
