INTRODUCTION Intradural spinal arachnoid cysts are collections of liquid similar to CSF, caused by a disorder of the arachnoid trabeculae. Noonan s syndrome is a condition involving multiple malformations, with autosomal dominant inheritance, variable penetration and expression and a phenotype similar to that of Turner s syndrome. We describe the case of a(More)
INTRODUCTION Arachnoid cysts are cavities with a content similar to cerebrospinal fluid, frequently communicating with the subarachnoid space. They make up 1% of the intracranial space occupying lesions, and although typically seen in children (13%), they may be undiagnosed until the patient has become adult. PATIENTS AND METHODS We review a series of 35(More)
INTRODUCTION Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause of motor disability in the paediatric age. For several decades, a number of developed countries have kept registers that have been used to conduct population-based studies of CP. In Spain, however, little attention has been paid to the epidemiology of CP. AIM To review the concept of CP today and(More)
INTRODUCTION Intracranial vascular malformations are congenital lesions due to alterations in the development of the arteriolocapillary network. Traditionally they are divided into four types according to their histological characteristics: arteriovenous malformations, cavernous angiomas or cavernomas, venous angiomas and telangectasias. The cavernomas are(More)
INTRODUCTION Intracranial venous thrombosis (IVT) is a rare condition at the paediatric age, with a wide variety of clinical features and causations. AIM To describe the etiopathogenic factors, the presenting symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and progress of the cases of IVT diagnosed at the Hospital 12 de Octubre. PATIENTS AND METHODS The descriptive(More)
INTRODUCTION Neurofibromatosis type I may be accompanied by cerebrovascular complications, mainly stenosis or aneurysms and more rarely vertebral arteriovenous fistulas and malformations. We report the first case of a child, as far as we know, with neurofibromatosis type I and subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by rupture of an arteriovenous malformation. (More)
INTRODUCTION Epilepsy is a chronic disorder. The prognosis of one particular subtype, that of children with generalized spike and wave discharges (P-O) on the electroencephalogram (EEG), is unknown. OBJECTIVE To determine the prognosis of children with epilepsy with P-O on EEG and the factors which affect this. PATIENTS AND METHODS All EEGs done over(More)
UNLABELLED About one third of the patients with epilepsy are not satisfactorily controlled in spite of correct anticonvulsive treatment. Although the ketogenic diet has been used for refractory epilepsy since the 1920s, over the past ten years it has been used much more. OBJECTIVE To review the effectiveness, tolerance and adverse effects in 12 paediatric(More)
All electroencephalograms performed in our institution between 1980 and 1990 were reviewed. The clinical characteristics of children with epilepsy and generalized spike-and-wave (SW) patterns were analyzed. The SW patterns were classified according to their frequency. Electroencephalograms of 154 children with epilepsy revealed SW patterns. Absence seizures(More)
