BACKGROUND Myoclonic-astatic epilepsy (MAE) is an epileptic syndrome characterized by unique myoclonus, myoclonic-astatic, or astatic seizures in childhood. MAE prognosis vary from spontaneous remission to intractable seizures with profound mental retardation. AIM Identifying early risk factors may optimize the treatment of children with MAE. Our(More)
Solid pseudo-papillary tumor (SPT) of the pancreas is a relatively benign tumor that is more frequently reported in females. Most patients usually present with abdominal pain or mass. We experienced the girl who identified SPT with the injury. We diagnosed SPT in a previously healthy 14-year-old Asian girl after abdominal injury. She experienced upper(More)
We describe two children of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (NFLE) diagnosed using carefully observed nocturnal sleep EEGs and detailed patient histories. Case #1, a 14-year-old boy, showed repeated generalized tonic convulsions and frequent eyes opening seizures during sleep. Conventional EEGs - done with the patient awake or in sleep stage I - showed no(More)
SUMMARY We evaluated the usefulness of endovascular treatment of posterior circulation aneurysms with GDCs and IDCs. Five cases were treated with IDCs, and 15 cases were treated with GDCs. In this study, 8 aneurysms were identified at the basilar bifurcation, 3 at the PI segment of the posterior cerebral artery, 1 at the origin of the superior cerebellar(More)
The rate of phosphoenolpyruvate transport in erythrocytes from patients with hereditary spherocytosis and from healthy individuals was examined in a 0.1 M citrate buffer (pH 6.1 at 37 degrees C) containing 10 mM phosphoenolpyruvate and 10 mM NaF. The rate in erythrocytes from patients with hereditary spherocytosis was 0.09 +/- 0.02 mumol/min/ml of cells(More)
