Dramatic effect of ethosuximide on epileptic negative myoclonus: implications for the neurophysiological mechanism.

Abstract

Epileptic negative myoclonus (ENM) is a recently defined epileptic seizure type seen in various epileptic syndromes. Although the long-term prognosis appears to be favorable, the treatment of localization-related epilepsy (LRE) with ENM in childhood is sometimes difficult due to the apparently pharmaco-resistant nature of ENM.
