A 9-year-old boy manifested acute cerebellar ataxia associated with mumps infection. He developed opsoclonus, myoclonus, tremor, and truncal ataxia 7 days after mumps infection. Lumbar puncture revealed pleocytosis without elevation of protein; ELISA demonstrated an increased IgM titer of cerebrospinal fluid against mumps virus. From these results it was(More)
To investigate the significance of EEG findings relating to the appearance of psychic symptoms in epileptic children, a clinicoelectroencephalographic study was undertaken on 15 cases with psychotic episodes. 1) Psychotic episodes with hallucination and/or illusion were observed, though rarely, in childhood epilepsy. These seemed liable to occur in temporal(More)

In 45 cases of Lennox syndrome treated with ACTH, the immediate and long-term effects and the various factors affecting them were investigated by a follow-up study. 1) Regarding the immediate effect, 23 (51.1%) of the 45 cases became "seizure free" for over 10 days. 2) As to the long-term prognosis of these 23 cases, 10 cases relapsed into Lennox syndrome(More)
BACKGROUND Abnormal left ventricular (LV) diastolic relaxation is an early sign of hypertensive heart disease. Whether diastolic dysfunction differs between LV geometric patterns remains controversial. METHODS AND RESULTS We examined 220 hypertensive patients by echocardiography to assess the relationship between diastolic function and LV geometric(More)
On the prevalence day, 2,378 epileptic children were identified. Therefore, the prevalence rate for epilepsy was 8.2 per 1,000. The lowest prevalence rate was 1.2 in children under one year of age, and the highest was 11.0 at five years of age. The rate was higher for males than females. The annual incidence rate for epilepsy was estimated at 145.0 per(More)
