We sought to determine the relation of FCSCs to epilepsy by comparing the lobe of seizure origin by electroclinical and CT evaluations and to study the nature and severity of(More)
OBJECTIVES The neuromuscular transmission failure in acute organophosphate (OP) poisoning occurs because of the irreversible inactivation of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase located in the neuromuscular junction, and is distinguished neuroelectrophysiologically by single electrical stimulus-induced repetitive responses and either a decremental or a(More)

Four patients with continuous muscle fibre activity (Isaacs-Mertens syndrome) are reported in this communication. Electrophysiological evidence of peripheral neuropathy was present in two patients. Impulse induced repetitive CMAPs were noted in two patients. In one case the repetitive activity increased upon proximal stimulation. Single fibre EMG recordings(More)
