A case of the Morgagni-Adams-Stokes'a symptom complex

Rufimsky V.V.


Cases of the Morgagni-Adams-Stokes symptom complex are of interest in three respects: firstly, this disease is far from common and has not yet been sufficiently studied (for example, over the past 10 years, the Faculty Therapeutic Clinic of Kazan University had only three cases of this disease); secondly, sometimes, as was the case in our case, patients with this disease present very interesting phenomena from the heart, found during auscultation of the heart, especially direct, that is, auscultation with the ear without a stethoscope; thirdly, finally, the cases of the Morgagni-Adams-Stokes'a symptom complex are interesting because of the instructive picture given by the latest research methods used in cardiology in this disease, namely, sphygmophlebography and especially electrocardio diagnostics. The latter, in cases of the cardiogenic type of the named disease, makes it possible to make a very accurate anatomical diagnosis with confidence.

The effect of the cutaneous application of old Kosh'a tuberculin for therapeutic purposes on tuberculosis patients in outpatient pediatric practice

Menshikov V.K.


The therapeutic use of tuberculin, as is known, has long occupied a prominent place among many methods of treating tuberculosis. However, the views and assessment of this drug among researchers still strongly diverge: while some authors completely deny the beneficial effect of using this drug, others widely use it, noting the good results obtained at the same time. One cannot but agree that such a disagreement depends a lot on the personality of the researcher himself, on the method of application of the agent, on the severity and stage of the disease, etc.

Fibroids of the uterus with intravascular growth

Timofeev A.I.


As you know, in the controversial issue of the histogenesis of uterine fibroids, the so-called. vascular theory occupies a fairly prominent place. I am among my defenders of such prominent representatives of natka as Borst, Orth, Lubagsch, Gottschalk, etc. Despite the high probability of such a histogenesis of uterine myomas, it should be noted that the growth of tumors into the lumen of the vessels is extremely rare, and only a few cases of this kind are described in the literature. Various authors, describing tumors spreading in their growth along the preexisting cavities, give them different names — myoma plexiforme, Venenmyom, and R. Meyer suggests calling them myoma intravasculare.
