The recent development of SPECT has introduced a new procedure to evaluate neurological diseases. By mean of Tc99mHM-PAO we studied a group of 19 pediatric subjects (7 males and 12 females) with different form of migraine, within five days after the last headache attack. Postictally SPECT shows regionally decreased CBF in 3/4 of HM, in 5/6 of BAM, in 5/5 of(More)
The authors refer their experience in the treatment of intractable childhood epilepsies (18 cases) with intravenous gamma globulin. Seven patients showed great reduction or indeed disappearance of the seizures whereas modest improvement was observed in other 4 cases. A better organization of the EEG corresponded to this clinical improvement with a reduction(More)
SPECT scanning with Tc99mHM-PAO was performed on 40 children with 'intractable' partial epilepsy; 27 patients had abnormalities on SPECT images consisting of areas of decreased cerebral blood flow. In 18 of these 27 subjects there was a good correlation between site of the abnormalities on SPECT scan and interictal EEG foci. 12 patients with regionally(More)
