Dear Readers and Colleagues,


Welcome to the second issue of Neurologia Croatica in 2023.

We have finished the first successful year under the new editorial board of Neurologia Croatica.

In this issue of the journal, we bring you two neurological reviews on rare neurological diseases: posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome and spinal muscular atrophy associated with progressive myoclonic epilepsy. Furthermore, several interesting case reports indicate difficulties in the diagnosis and treatment of people with neurological diseases in everyday clinical practice are presented. A very educational case by Prof. Džamonja from University Hospital Center Split describes Marchiafava–Bignami disease which is a rare but not forgotten complication of chronic alcoholism. In that regard, we invite young neurologists in training to submit preliminary results of their research and interesting case reports to our journal.

We are grateful to all reviewers who completed their reviews in 2023: Ervina Bilić, Svetlana Tomić, Jadranka Sekelj Fureš, Hrvoje Bilić, Marina Boban, Gordan Grahovac, Ivica Bilić, Fadi Almahariq, Mihael Mišir, Tereza Gabelić, and Gregor Brecl Jakob. The quality of the journal’s review process is extremely important to the success of Neurologia Croatica and so the contributions of scientific expertise of our reviewers to this process are most appreciated.

In the end, I hope you will enjoy reading this issue and invite you to submit your next article to Neurologia Croatica.
