MA Khan
August 1992, 46(8):235-8
This study was undertaken to evaluate the pattern of cerebral palsy (CP) cases seen at Children's Hospital, benghazi, Libya, in respect of age and sex distribution and developmental outcome according to the type of CP and in various diseases. 60 children both male and female with CP were examined for developmental and intellectual impairment responsible for severe learning and psychomotor disabilities and to their linguistic disorder. Diagnosis of CP was made by a detailed history, physical examination and relevant laboratory investigations. Intellectual and developmental assessment of all CP cases were done by psychometry. CPs are motor syndromes, and not diseases. They are commonly associated with sensory or cognitive defects and epilepsies. The CP children when compared with normal are significant at 0.01 level of significance IQ's and DQ's. Only 8% children with mild to borderline intellectual impairment had mild speech delay an darticulation defects, and showed learning disability. 40% children with sensory disorder had variations from moderate to borderline intellectual subnormality and 36% children with birth asphyxia had delayed milestones thought were felt to have motor problems initially.

MS Bhatia, NK Dhar, P Agrawal, SK Khurana, B Neena, SC Malik
August 1992, 46(8):239-42
The present study was conducted on 40 new consecutive schizophrenic patients admitted in the psychiatry ward. The diagnosis of schizophrenia was done by Research Diagnosis Criteria (RDC). Serum immunoglobulins were were estimated in schizophrenic patients and were age and sex matched with 40 healthy individuals, comprising the control group. The IgG and IgA mean levels of schizophrenic patients were found to be significantly higher (p < 0.01) than the normal healthy individuals. There were however no significant differences between the schizophrenic patients and control group regarding total proteins, albumin and globulin levels. In subtypes of schinophrenia based on phenomenology only, paranoid group scored significantly higher (p < 0.01) IgG and IgA mean values than other types of Schizophrenia (catatonic, disorganised and undifferentiated).
