  • OBJECTIVE To assess the presence/absence of peculiar EEG features and epilepsy in MECP2-mutated Rett patients with the Zappella-Rett variant (Z-RTT) also known as preserved speech variant. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 16 (age 19.4+/-8.4years; range 8-38years) MECP2 mutated Z-RTT cases, including 11 high or intermediate performance (HIP), and five low-performance (LP) patients was performed. Peculiar EEG features were analyzed as a function of the HIP or LP Z-RTT categories: (1) centro… CONTINUE READING
