BACKGROUND Autistic spectrum disorders are a group of neurological and developmental disorders associated with social, communication, sensory, behavioral and cognitive impairments, as well as restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, activities, or interests.The aim of this study was a) to analyze QEEG findings of autistic patients and to compare the(More)
BACKGROUND Infants with cystic fibrosis (CF) can develop episodes of hyponatremic hypochloremic dehydration with metabolic alkalosis when they sweat excessively, which is not caused by sweating in normal infants. We investigated the incidence of the metabolic alkalosis with hypoelectrolytemia in CF infants, the possible risk factors for its occurrence and(More)
The possibility that memory is related to the collective rotational energy levels of the molecules is considered. Treating the molecule as a quantum rotator, the probability of the ‘‘hidden-crossing’’ transitions between rotational states, induced by the external periodic electric field, is analyzed. It is found that this probability depends on frequency(More)
A newborn girl was found to have a massive lymphatic truncal vascular malformation with overlying cutaneous venous anomaly associated with overgrown feet and splayed toes. These manifestations comprise the recently described CLOVE syndrome. She also had cranial asymmetry and developed generalized seizures, which were treated with anticonvulsants. Cranial CT(More)
BACKGROUND Biofeedback is a modern computer-related technique used for assessment and therapy of many psychophysiological disorders, especially stress-related ones. After a short overview of the basic concepts of biofeedback, in this study the application of EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) in the assessment of and therapy for attention deficit hyperactivity(More)
Hereditary multiple exostoses (HME) is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder characterised by the presence of multiple exostoses, in fact benign cartilaginous tumors (enchondromata on the long bones). A six-year-old boy was found to have multiple osteochondromas on the legs, arms and ribs. Unusually, one of the osteochondromas on the right arm was huge(More)
Short stature associated with GH deficiency has been estimated to occur in about 1 in 4000 to 1 in 10,000 in various studies. In the last decade new genetic defects have been described in all the levels of the growth hormone-releasing hormone (GH-RH)-GH-IGF (insulin-like growth factor) axis. Genetic defects in the GHRH and in various parts of the(More)
BACKGROUND Anorexia and bulimia nervosa are considered to be the most serious eating disorders in female adolescents, with a multifactorial etiology and severe medical complications. It is interesting to investigate the specific relationships of these diseases to emotional stress, coping mechanisms and biofeedback mitigation. METHODS The study comprised(More)
The spondylocostal dysostoses (SCDs) are a heterogeneous group of axial skeletal disorders characterized by multiple segmentation defects of the vertebrae (SDV) and abnormality of the thoracic cage with mal-aligned ribs and often a reduction in rib number. The four known monogenic forms of SCD follow autosomal recessive inheritance, have generalized SDV, a(More)
After a short review of the developmental characteristics, integrality and complex structure of the EEG spectrum, some original clinical experiences with the diagnosis and treatment of related rhythm abnormalities in children and adolescents are presented. In particular, the approach and results concerning ADHD, OCD and dehydration disorders are discussed.(More)
