A significant proportion of children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder experience a developmental regression characterized by a loss of previously-acquired skills. This may involve a loss of speech or social responsitivity, but often entails both. This paper critically reviews the phenomena of regression in autistic spectrum disorders, highlighting the characteristics of regression, age of onset, temporal course, and long-term outcome. Important considerations for diagnosis are… 
Risk Factors for Autistic Regression
TLDR
It is suggested that febrile seizures and family history of neuropsychiatric disorders are correlated with autistic regression, and these factors should be considered as influencing factors in Chinese autistic children.

Dental professionals who treat patients with ASDs should be knowledgeable about the special needs of not only these patients, but also of their parents, especially since there is no cure.
Developmental regression in autism spectrum disorder.
TLDR
There is a lot of evidence suggesting that most children who demonstrate regression also had previous, subtle, developmental differences, so it is difficult to predict the prognosis of autistic children with developmental regression.

Regression and word loss in autistic spectrum disorders.
TLDR
Results indicated that the acquisition of a small number of spontaneous words used meaningfully and consistently followed by loss of all words, often associated with other social changes, was unique to children diagnosed at 5 years with ASD.
Regression Versus No Regression in the Autistic Disorder: Developmental Trajectories
TLDR
Children who regressed showed lower mean performances than those who did not regress and, in the time intervals considered, non-regressed children improved their ratings in the above mentioned variables significantly more than regressed children.

TLDR
The clinical course of these children justifies the segregation of early infantile autism as a clinical entity, probably to be included within the group of schizophrenias.
Acquired Aphasia With Convulsive Disorder: A Pervasive Developmental Disorder Variant
TLDR
A 5½-year-old boy with language delay and behavioral problems was evaluated, and electroencephalography showed frequent generalized spike and polyspike activity, so a trial of anticonvulsant medication is probably warranted.

Summary:  It is well documented that children with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) have an increased prevalence of seizures; however, studies have not been done to evaluate the prevalence of ASD in
Case study: corticosteroid treatment of language regression in pervasive developmental disorder.
TLDR
The factors underlying language regression in pervasive developmental disorder can, in special circumstances, be amenable to pharmacological treatment and result in amelioration of language abilities and behavior.
Autistic Regression in Relation to Limbic Pathology and Epilepsy: Report of Two Cases
TLDR
A follow‐up study of two boys who presented with autistic regression at 13 and 22 months finds that the autistic behaviour appears to be linked to pathology in the limbic system and a direct role of epilepsy in the regression is proposed.
Clinical Features of Autistic Children with Setback Course in Their Infancy
TLDR
This study examines the incidence rate of setback in 80 autistic children, the correlation between the type of onset and clinical features, developmental level and prognosis based on an originally developed questionnaire, and the possibility that infantile autism might be classified into subgroups by thetype of onset.
