[Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy].
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is a disorder characterized by muscle weakness and wasting (atrophy). This condition gets its name from the muscles that are affected most often: those of the… Expand
X‐Linked myopathy with excessive autophagy: A new hereditary muscle disease
We report on 3 brothers with a myopathy that also affected their maternal grandfather and great‐uncle. Characteristic features are onset in early childhood, very slow progression, normal life… Expand
Brain catecholamines and their metabolites in Parkinsonian patients. Treatment with levodopa alone or combined with a decarboxylase inhibitor.
Analyses of autopsy samples of parkinsonian patients showed significantly decreased concentrations of dopamine and homovanillic acid (HVA) in extrapyramidal brain regions. Twelve patients treated… Expand
EXCRETION OF FREE AND CONJUGATED 5‐HIAA AND VMA IN URINE AND CONCENTRATION OF 5‐HIAA AND HVA IN CSF DURING MIGRAINE ATTACKS AND FREE INTERVALS
The DIAGNOSIS OF migraine is still based on clinical findings. However, everyday practice has forced us to check our attitude to old ideas. According to Water's study only half of migraine patients… Expand
L-Dopa treatment in Parkinson's Disease.
Double-blind and non-blind therapeutic trials of orally administered L-Dopa in the long-term treatment of Parkinsonism were carried out with 126 patients. For correlative studies the amount of hornova

Ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in myopathies: correlations with electromyography and histopathology
Imaging of examinations by ultrasound (US), computerized tomography (CT) and low field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were compared with EMG and muscle biopsy findings in the same muscles of 33… Expand
