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.

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 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)
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)
The chemical characterization of the free fatty acid (FFA) fractions of the cuticular lipids of Calliphora vicina larvae and pupae was performed by separating the FFA fraction using high-performance liquid chromatography with laser light scattering detection (HPLC–LLSD) and quantitatively analyzing the FFA using gas chromatography–electron impact mass(More)
Fatty acids (FAs) from nymphs, females and males of Ixodes ricinus were analysed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Ticks were collected from May to October 2013. The most abundant FAs were 18:1, 18:0, 16:0 and 18:2 which are also dominant FAs of insects. Adults contained higher concentrations of FAs in general than nymphs because they contain more(More)
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is one of the most common genetic disorders caused by a single gene mutation. The disease usually manifests itself at the age of 30-40 years and is characterized by formation of renal cysts along with the enlargement of kidneys and deterioration of their function, eventually leading to renal(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)
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.
