BACKGROUND Reflex epilepsy is characterized by seizures that are triggered in response to a specific stimulus and tooth-brushing epilepsy is an extremely rare form of reflex epilepsy in which the seizures are mainly induced by the act of tooth brushing. In this report, we describe an epilepsy patient whose seizures were exclusively triggered by the use of a(More)
BACKGROUND Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a well-defined idiopathic generalized epileptic syndrome, and diagnostic criteria for JME are to have a normal brain imaging and clinical evidence of typical epileptic seizures. The aim of this study is to evaluate electrophysiological and neuroimaging findings of JME and determine their relationship with(More)
Epilepsy is a disorder of cortical excitability and still an important medical problem. The correct diagnosis of a patient's epilepsy syndrome clarifies the choice of drug treatment and also allows an accurate assessment of prognosis in many cases. The aim of this study is to evaluate epileptic patients and classify epilepsy groups such as partial and(More)
BACKGROUND The knowledge regarding myocardial alterations in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in the absence of any known cardiovascular disorders including hypertension is limited. The aim of this study was to assess the early alterations of left ventricular (LV) functions caused by OSAS before the development of hypertension and other(More)
Dear Editor, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive demyelina-ting disease of the central nervous system. Cognitive dysfunc-tion (CD) is usually observed at advanced stages of the disease but CD may be rarely observed at the initial stages of MS. Very unusually, MS presents primarily as CD; when this presentation occurs, it is referred as "(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the underlying etiologic factors of epilepsy patients and to predict the prognosis of these patients by using a Multi-Layer Perceptron Neural Network (MLPNN) according to risk factors. 758 patients with epilepsy diagnosis are included in this study. The MLPNNs were trained by the parameters of demographic properties of(More)
Scientific background: Pseudotumor cerebri (PC) or idiopathic benign intracranial hypertension is characterized by abnormal elevation of intracranial pressure with a normal composition of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and absence of hydrocephaly or any intracranial mass lesion. Papilledema is the major clinical finding whereas neuroradiological imaging(More)
Eating-induced seizures are an uncommon presentation of reflex epilepsy, a condition characterized by seizures provoked by specific stimuli. Exact pathogenic mechanism of eating epilepsy is still unknown. Various etiology related to eating epilepsy such as genetic factors, ethnicity, and specific food and eating habits. Here we present a 69-year-old men(More)
