Sixteen children, aged from 2 months to 14 years, with a diagnosis of acute seizures and seen at Dr. Sami Ulus Child Health and Disease Center, were included in this study. Midazolam (5 mg/mL) 0.2 mg/kg was administered intranasally in 30 seconds by an injector. The heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation were recorded at 0, 5,(More)
The aims of the study were to compare the clinical types, electroencephalogram (EEG) and cranial magnetic resonance imaging/computed tomography findings of epileptic and non-epileptic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. Seventy-four patients with CP were evaluated in 2 years. Tetraplegic CP had a higher incidence of epilepsy (60.5%). EEG was confirmed abnormal in(More)
We describe a 14-year-old female patient with progressive ponto-bulbar palsy and deafness. The first symptom was present at the age of 9 as a difficulty in walking and then she was stable with mild clumsy walking till 14 year-old. It was noticed that she had rapidly progression gait disorder, hearing loss, difficulty in swallowing and speaking in a period(More)

Because of the angiographic appearance, it is named as moyamoya. The clinical features are cerebral ischaemia, recurrent transient ischaemic attacks, sensorimotor(More)
We compared patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis who received treatment according to our protocol for at least 6 months (19 patients) with the patients who could not receive any treatment (13 patients). The treatment protocol consisted of oral isoprinosine (100 mg/kg/day), subcutaneous interferon alpha-2a (10 mU/m2/three times a week), and oral(More)
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis is a neurodegenerative disease with a poor prognosis. We report a case of a 5 1/2-year-old boy who had emotional lability, cognitive difficulties, and myoclonia after a mild closed head injury. The magnetic resonance image of the brain and computed tomographic scan of the head were normal. His electroencephalogram (EEG)(More)
A 4-year-old male presented with only acute vision loss. His neurologic examination, funduscopic examination, and pupils were normal. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging revealed abnormal hyperintense, bilaterally symmetric lesions (on T(2)-weighted and fluid-attenuated inversion recovery, images) in bilateral optic radiations, pulvinar region in the(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of misdiagnosis of sinus headache in migraine and other primary headache types in the children and adolescents with chronic or recurrent headaches. Children with chronic or recurrent headaches (n = 310) were prospectively evaluated. Data collection for each patient included history of previously diagnosed(More)
Imaging findings of brain damage due to neonatal hypoglycemia are known; however, the effect of childhood hypoglycemia on the brain has not been described well. The authors present the case of a 6-year-old girl who had seizures secondary to hypoglycemia followed up for 1 year as epilepsy. The patient had experienced a hypoglycemic coma attack about 1 year(More)
This report describes a female with eyelid fluttering with absence seizures, infrequent generalized tonic-clonic seizures, and mild mental retardation. Interictal and video-electroencephalography evaluations revealed normal activity while eyes were open but continuous generalized discharges with eyes closed (eyes closed induced abnormality), as well as(More)
