We studied the clinical and electroencephalographic features in 30 children who were diagnosed with childhood absence epilepsy. According to their EEG pattern we divided the 30 children into two groups: group A: 11 children with classical absences whose ictal EEG showed primary generalized spikes and waves and group B: 19 children with frontal onset of the(More)
Findings of both material- and hemisphere-specific influence on memory performance in children with epilepsy are inconsistent. Verbal memory of 80 children with focal epilepsy, aged 7 to 16, was assessed and compared with verbal memory of 80 healthy schoolchildren. The Verbal Selective Reminding test was used to distinguish between patients with left-sided(More)
BACKGROUND In pediatric epilepsy, health-related quality of life (HRQOL) may be affected across the physical, psychological, social, and school domains. Studies have shown that antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) could have a significant negative impact on HRQOL, but these findings are scarce and inconsistent. AIM To evaluate the influence that the adverse effects(More)
PURPOSE To determine clinical phenotypes, evolution and genetic background of a large family with a combination of two unusual forms of reflex epilepsies. METHOD Phenotyping was performed in eighteen family members (10 F, 8 M) including standardized EEG recordings with intermittent photic stimulation (IPS). Genetic analyses (linkage scans, Whole Exome(More)
Photosensitivity is a heritable abnormal cortical response to flickering light, manifesting as particular electroencephalographic changes, with or without seizures. Photosensitivity is prominent in a very rare epileptic encephalopathy due to de novo CHD2 mutations, but is also seen in epileptic encephalopathies due to other gene mutations. We determined(More)
The objectives of this study were to translate into Serbian the Health-Related Quality of Life Measure for Children with Epilepsy (CHEQOL-25) and to provide preliminary data on its measurement properties. Translation, cultural adaptation, and pretesting were performed first, followed by evaluation of several reliability aspects of this version administered(More)
This article reports on a female infant with Aicardi syndrome presenting with malignant migrating partial seizures from her first day of life. Initially, unilateral tonic seizures were seen with contralateral ictal electroencephalogram findings. Typically, these tonic seizures were accompanied by head and eye deviation and were followed by a tonic seizure(More)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a chronic infection of the central nervous system caused by the measles virus (MV). Its prevalence remains high in resource poor countries and is likely to increase in the Northern Europe as vaccination rates decrease. Clinical knowledge of this devastating condition, however, is limited. We therefore conducted(More)
