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 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)
We report on the development of transient parkinsonism after progesterone injection in a pregnant patient with a risk of abortion. Etiological possibilities are discussed, including pregnancy itself, possible toxic effects of the dead fetus, and progesterone injection. Progesterone-induced parkinsonism seems the most likely diagnosis in this case.
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)
The effects of antiepileptic drugs (AED) on the serum concentration of vitamin B12, folic acid and homocysteine (HMC), and erythrocyte folic acid levels were determined in 45 epileptic patients (30 women, 15 men; mean age 31.7 years) and 23 healthy volunteers (control group; 18 women, five men; mean age 33.4 years). All patients were either on carbamazepine(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)
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)
BACKGROUND Headache in patients with systemic lupus eryhtematosus (SLE) is considered a common neurological finding, although the relationship is unclear. Another obscure point is the relationship between headache and neuroradiologic findings in these patients. AIM In this study, we aimed to evaluate the correlation between headache characteristics and(More)
