Vigabatrin is an anti-epileptic drug particularly useful for drug-resistant partial seizures and infantile spasms. Recently, vigabatrin-induced visual field constriction (VFC) and abnormal ocular electrophysiological studies were reported. In this study, we assessed visual fields, visual evoked potentials (VEPs), and electroretinography (ERG) in children(More)
Focal neurological deficits associated with hypoglycemia have been well described in adults with diabetes. We could find only one report of the association between focal epileptic episodes and hypoglycemia in children with diabetes. We describe 3 patients with seven focal epileptic episodes associated with hypoglycemia.
This study compared the efficacy of Adeli suit treatment (AST) with neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT) in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Twenty-four children with CP, Levels II to IV according to the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), were matched by age and functional status and randomly assigned to the AST or NDT treatment groups.

Seizures and status epilepticus, which may contribute to brain injury, are common consequences of exposure to organophosphorus (OP) cholinesterase inhibitors. Effective management of these seizures is critical. To investigate the efficacy of nasal midazolam as an anticonvulsive treatment for OP exposure, as compared to intramuscular midazolam, guinea pigs(More)

Serum lipids were measured in children and their parents from 40 families in which the father had a myocardial infarction or coronary heart disease (CHD) before age 40 years. The relationship between physical activity and serum lipid concentrations in the children was also evaluated. Twenty six men had one or more abnormal lipid value (in mmol/l): total(More)
Three children are presented with dermoid cysts of the posterior fossa, one of the most common locations of dermoid. They were initially diagnosed as having abscesses. Clinical presentations included hydrocephalus and recurrent meningitis. A helpful clue for identification is a bony defect of the skull on plain film or on a bone-window at Computed(More)
