[Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis: A review of the 2017 revisions of the McDonald criteria].

Authors:
Tünde Csépány

Ideggyogy Sz 2018 Sep;71(9-10):321-329

Debreceni Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar, Neurológiai Tanszék, Debrecen.

The revolutionary progress of research in neuroimmu-nology has led to the introduction of disease modifying therapies in multiple sclerosis at the end of the last century. The International Panel on Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis originally proposed the 2001 McDonald criteria to facilitate the diagnosis of MS in patients with the first objective neurological symptom(s) suggesting demyelinating event, when magnetic resonance imaging is integrated with clinical and other paraclinical diagnostic methods. New terms have been introduced to substitute clinical information by MRI: dissemination in space - indicating a multifocal central demyelinating process and dissemination in time - indicating the development of new CNS lesions over time.

[Strategies of using the new antiepileptic drugs for epilepsy in adults].

Authors:
János Nikl

Ideggyogy Sz 2018 Jul;71(7-08):249-258

Zala Megyei Szent Rafael Kórház, Neurológiai Osztály, Zalaegerszeg.

The new antiepileptic drugs have not changed the basic pharmacological treatment principles of epilepsy, but they have given greater choice in focal and in generalized epilepsies as well. The new drugs are not necessarily more effective than traditional drugs, but they have favourable pharmacokinetic characteristics, fewer interactions and better adverse effect profile in the acute and chronic phase of the treatment. They generally show a lower teratogenicity risk than the standard antiepileptics, although carbamazepine, one of the standard drugs can be used and zonisamide, a new one must be avoid in pregnancy.
