We reviewed the efficacy and a pharmacokinetics of intranasal midazolam (MDL) for status epilepticus in childhood epilepsies. This trial was planned for the patients who developed status epilepticus at least once in the past and had no responses with diazepam.

Findings on CT/MRI were divided into the following 7 categories: Group 1 (normal), Group 2 (CT/MRI looked normal in acute phase, but brain atrophy developed and progressed slowly by weeks or months), Group 3(More)
We reviewed MRI and SPECT images in 10 patients with septo-optic dysplasia (SOD). MRI was performed in all of them. Six of them had bilateral optic nerve atrophy and abnormality of midline brain structures (e. g., septum pellucidum, corpus callosum). Four cases had one-sided optic nerve atrophy. They have ipsilateral or bilateral cortical dysplasia. It may(More)
