Three patients with infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy (INAD, Seitelberger's disease) studied between ages 2 and 5 years, with the characteristic electroencephalographic pattern of high-voltage, fast (16-24 c/sec) rhythms and absence of reactivity on eye-opening or closure (Radermecker and Dumon-Radermecker 1972), also showed no changes in response to(More)
Thirty-nine very low-birthweight (VLBW) preterm infants with periventricular hemorrhage (PVH) were studied with short-latency median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) at two, four and/or six months corrected age, and subsequently were followed to a mean age of 22 months. All 12 infants with a single SEP showing unilateral absence or prolonged(More)
An 8-year-old child developed acute mental confusion, and choreoathetosis without a preceding history of acute rheumatic fever. Serial EEGs showed focal suppression of sleep spindle activity over the right cerebral hemisphere along with high-amplitude polymorphic slow-wave complexes.

The most similar condition reported is the syndrome described by Fitzsimmons and Guilbert in uniovular twins characterized by progressive spastic paraplegia, dysarthria, brachydactyly type E, and(More)
