To determine the role of ventricular shunts as a cause of seizures in children with hydrocephalus, 190 patients with myelomeningoceles were studied. There was a low incidence of seizures (2%) in the nonshunted patients in spite of a high incidence of ventriculomegaly, whereas the overall frequency of seizures in shunted patients was 22%.

In this paper we reported a patient with multisystem failure, whose EEG immediately preceding death demonstrated a unique combination of suppression-burst pattern, generalized epileptiform discharges, and alpha-theta pattern coma. Post-mortem examination showed ischemic-anoxic lesions involving cortical and sub-cortical gray matter. The lack of white matter(More)
Using pulsed Doppler ultrasound through the sonic window of the anterior fontanelle in infants, 46 children with ventriculomegaly had sequential evaluations of Resistive Index for comparison with the need for ventriculoperitoneal shunting. Hydrocephalus was associated with myelomeningocele in 17 patients and posthemorrhagic, postmeningitic, or congenital(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated a high correlation between hydrocephalus and the resistive index (RI), as determined by transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. Measurements of RI, calculated by dividing the difference between the peak systolic velocity and the end-diastolic velocity by the peak systolic velocity, were attempted in 55 pediatric patients(More)
Uptake of indium-labeled leukocytes was seen in two cases of histologically proven brain metastasis. In one, this led to misdiagnosis of the lesion as an abscess. On histological evaluation, a large number of white blood cells or macrophages was seen at the neoplastic sites. Reasons for leukocyte accumulation around metastatic brain neoplasms are discussed.(More)
