Panayiotopoulos syndrome (PS) is a type of benign childhood partial epilepsy, which has a good prognosis despite the fact that it is frequently associated with abundant multifocal spikes on the electroencephalography (EEG). We investigated whether stable dipoles, as seen in rolandic epilepsy, were also present in PS. We performed dipole analysis of the(More)
PURPOSE Panayiotopoulos syndrome (PS) is a type of benign childhood partial epilepsy that is frequently associated with abundant multifocal spikes other than main occipital spikes on the EEG. In this study, we investigated the characteristic features of dipoles in PS. METHODS We performed dipole analysis of the interictal occipital spike discharges seen(More)
We report on a 4-year 8-month-old boy with Panayiotopoulos syndrome who showed atypical evolution with newly developed absence seizures and EEG exacerbation induced by carbamazepine. Soon after the introduction of carbamazepine, EEGs began to worsen, and finally absence seizures and myoclonic seizures appeared. Immediately after we discontinued(More)
Mednick et al and O'Callaghan et al have recently reported that individuals exposed to the 1957 A2 influenza pandemic during their second trimester in utero are at risk for later schizophrenia. In this study, we determined whether their findings could be reproducible in a Japanese sample. In Japan, there were two waves of the 1957 A2 influenza pandemic; the(More)
PURPOSE Complex partial status epilepticus (CPSE) is often under-diagnosed, especially in children. The aim of this study was to clarify the characteristics and pathophysiology of CPSE in children with epilepsy. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records and EEGs of 17 children with epilepsy who were diagnosed as having CPSE by(More)
