INTRODUCTION Topiramate (TPM) is a new antiepileptic drug whose multiple mechanisms of action justify both its broad therapeutic spectrum and its increasingly widespread use in childhood epilepsy. TPM acts as a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor and, although this does not affect its effectiveness as an antiepileptic, it does account for certain side effects such(More)
INTRODUCTION Levetiracetam (LEV) is the latest drug approved in the European Union for use in polytherapy in children over 4 years of age with partial epileptic seizures that are resistant to other antiepileptic drugs. AIM. To report our experience of associating LEV in children with medication resistant epileptic seizures. PATIENTS AND METHODS We(More)
INTRODUCTION Neurocysticercosis is the most frequent parasitic disease affecting the central nervous system. It is a disease that is endemic to certain countries in South America. The phenomenon of immigration, however, has increased its prevalence in developed regions due to the arrival of immigrants from endemic areas. AIM To present the clinical and(More)
Lipodystrophies are a group of diseases mainly characterized by a loss of adipose tissue and frequently associated with insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, and hepatic steatosis. In uncommon lipodystrophies, these complications frequently are difficult to control with conventional therapeutic approaches. This retrospective study addressed the(More)
INTRODUCTION The neuroaxonal dystrophies make up a group of neurodegenerative disorders of unknown origin, which are characterized by all showing axonal lesions. The infantile form, or Seitelberger s disease, is one of the forms of earliest onset and rapid progression. The clinical, neurophysiological and pathological criteria described by Aicardi and(More)
OBJECTIVE PELD (Progressive Encephalopathy with or without Lipodystrophy or Celia's Encephalopathy) is a fatal and rare neurodegenerative syndrome associated with the BSCL2 mutation c.985C>T, that results in an aberrant transcript without the exon 7 (Celia seipin). The aim of this study was to evaluate both the process of cellular senescence and the effect(More)
Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) deficiency is an inborn error of dopamine biosynthesis and a cause of early parkinsonism. Two clinical phenotypes have been described. Type "B": early onset severe encephalopathy; type "A": later onset, less severe and better response to L-dopa. We aimed to study the expression of several key dopaminergic and gabaergic synaptic(More)
INTRODUCTION Leukaemia is the most frequent type of cancer at the paediatric age. The cure rate is 80% with intensive chemotherapy, which improves survival but also often increases the frequency of adverse side effects, including those of a neurological nature. AIMS To describe the frequency and characteristics of the neurological complications (NC) in(More)
INTRODUCTION Hirayama disease is a rare children's muscular atrophy that affects young Asian males, with muscular atrophy usually in one of the upper limbs that progresses slowly and later stabilises. It is diagnosed by means of electromyographic/electroneurographic with conduction speed studies (EMG/ENG-CS) and by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the(More)
Celia's Encephalopathy (MIM #615924) is a recently discovered fatal neurodegenerative syndrome associated with a new BSCL2 mutation (c.985C>T) that results in an aberrant isoform of seipin (Celia seipin). This mutation is lethal in both homozygosity and compounded heterozygosity with a lipodystrophic BSCL2 mutation, resulting in a progressive encephalopathy(More)
