  • The goal of this report is to review the relationships between Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS), electrical status epilepticus during sleep (ESES), and continuous spike-waves during sleep (CSWS). LKS is a clinical syndrome involving mainly acquired aphasia and sometimes seizures. Other clinical findings include cognitive impairments and global regression of behavior. The EEG may evolve from more benign conditions into ESES (or CSWS), seen in 50% of patients with LKS, or may also show focal… CONTINUE READING
