We report the fourth case of partial status epilepticus (SE) in benign epilepsy of childhood with rolandic spikes (BECRS). The child suffered long-lasting attacks involving the mouth and pharynx, clinically manifest as speech arrest, sialorrhea, and drooling. Both clinical and electroencephalogram (EEG) data were compatible with the diagnosis of BECRS. Only(More)
The electroclinical picture and nosological limits of benign partial epilepsy of childhood with rolandic spikes (BERS) have been better defined by nocturnal sleep records. In all stages of sleep, there is a significant increase in frequency and amplitude of rolandic spikes (RS) without change of their morphology. Another interesting observation is the(More)
We report an electroclinical and cytogenetic study of 4 patients with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS). In all cases, we observed a stereotyped EEG and clinical picture characterized by generalized or unilateral myoclonic seizures followed later by brief atypical absences. Electrographically, these were accompanied by a sequence of centroparietal or(More)
Infantile Huntington's disease (HD) shows a wide clinical heterogeneity. Here we describe the case of a child affected by HD who showed unusual neurological features consistent with tourettism. The absence of family history and persisting normal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results long after the onset of symptoms delayed the diagnosis of the disease.(More)
Our parallel hybrid analysis methods facilitate the parallelization of the analysis phase of a software transformation system, by enabling deeper semantic analyses to be accomplished more eciently than if performed sequentially. Our previous empirical studies proled these hybrid techniques on the Reaching Denitions problem [LMR91, LR92a, LR92c]. Recently,(More)
We report on a patient with a left frontal lesion who, many years after an injury, developed non-fluent aphasia and facial myoclonic jerks triggered by speaking and listening to spoken language. At age 57, the patient first noted that he would begin to stutter when delivering lectures at conferences. The stuttering would worsen if he continued talking. The(More)
The authors report the case of a girl with achondroplasia suffering from a progressively worsening hypotonic quadriparesis. CT scan showed slight dilatation of ventricular and subarachnoid spaces, with well-defined evidence of cortical sulci and gyri. This aspect was compatible with the diagnosis of macrocrania and megalencephaly (CP being 51 cm). The(More)
