PURPOSE The aim of this study was to examine interictal, pre-ictal and ictal autonomic system disturbance by comparing heart rate variability in children with uncontrolled epilepsy with that seen in healthy controls and children with controlled epilepsy. METHODS Our study group included 20 children with refractory epilepsy, our control groups were(More)
Tricyclic antidepressant poisoning is one of the most common causes of serious intoxication. Here, we report a 2-year-old girl with severe amitriptyline (70 mg/kg) intoxication. She was in comatose, had generalized tonic clonic seizure, ventricular tachycardia, and wide QRS complexes. Although she did not respond to classical therapies, very good clinical(More)
Mumps is one of the common causes of childhood aseptic meningitis and encephalitis. Although central nervous system involvement is a common manifestation, hydrocephalus is a very rare complication of mumps, with just a few cases reported in the literature to date. Here we report on an 8-year-old boy with acute tetraventricular hydrocephalus caused by mumps(More)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a progressive inflammatory and degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The measles virus (MV) and host and environmental factors are involved in the development of SSPE, but the precise mechanism by which the MV causes SSPE is still unknown. Studies have indicated that in SSPE patients, specific(More)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a progressive inflammatory and degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. Several factors influence the risk of chronic brain infection with the mutant measles virus. However, to date, no pathogenic mechanism that may predispose to SSPE has been determined. Studies have indicated that specific(More)
Arachnoid cysts are benign developmental collections of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). They constitute approximately 1% of intracranial masses. The cerebellopontine angle (CPA) arachnoid cysts are rare and often asymptomatic. The onset of symptoms and signs is usually due to the compression of the brain, cranial nerves and obstruction of CSF circulation. The(More)
Amplitude integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) is a user friendly technique suitable for long term continuous monitoring of cerebral electrical background activity. It is increasingly being used in monitoring high risk neonates in intensive care units. Newer two-channel aEEG monitors by providing data from both side of the brain may increase the(More)
