The aim of this study was to assess psychomotor development, using Griffiths' test, and the incidence of minor anomalies at birth in children who had been exposed to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in utero. The study sample comprised 100 children of mothers who were treated with AEDs during pregnancy and 100 matched control children. Women with epilepsy were(More)
The pharmacokinetics of many antiepileptic drugs differs between adults and children. The influence of age and concomitant medications on the dose/concentration ratio of levetiracetam was examined in 103 children with epilepsy. Dosing and plasma levels of levetiracetam and concomitant antiepileptic drugs were reviewed retrospectively. The dose/concentration(More)
The use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of fetal malformations. Although it is known that AEDs may differ with respect to the type of malformations they can induce, earlier studies have generally lacked the power to demonstrate differences between AEDs in their overall teratogenic potential. Furthermore, there(More)
BACKGROUND Intrauterine exposure to antidepressants may lead to neonatal symptoms from the central nervous system, respiratory system and gastrointestinal system. Finnegan score (Neonatal Abstinence Score, NAS) has routinely been used to assess infants exposed to antidepressants in utero. AIM The purpose was to study neonatal maladaptation syndrome in(More)
The underlying pathogenic mechanisms of neurological complications in infants undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD) are poorly understood. We report on four male infants treated with PD who developed symptomatic cerebral ischaemia. Blood pressure (BP) levels were low both before the event and at presentation. In two patients, we observed that the removal of(More)
Phenobarbital is an old antiepileptic drug used in severe epilepsy. Despite this, little is written about the need for dose adjustments in renal replacement therapy. Most sources recommend a moderately increased dose guided by therapeutic drug monitoring.A 14 year old boy with nonketotic hyperglycinemia, a rare inborn error of metabolism, characterized by(More)
