[A case of acute encephalitis with refractory, repetitive partial seizures (AERRPS) showing transient disappearance of the seizure with occurrence of choreo-ballistic movement].
Interestingly, her seizures had completely diminished from the fifty-sixth day of her illness with concomitant appearance of choreo-ballistic involuntary movements, and this transient disappearance of intractable seizures might provide a clue to the pathophysiology of seizures in AERRPS.
[Efficacy of anticonvulsants on acute encephalitis with refractory, repetitive partial seizures (AERRPS)].
Based on the data, it is recommended that patients with AERRPS should be under a high dose intravenous barbiturate during the acute phase, followed by a high doses of phenobarbital or phenytoin in the convalescence.
Epilepsia partialis continua—a clinical and electroencephalography study
Cognitive decline, motor deficits and pharmacoresistance to drugs were significantly seen among children with Type 2 EPC, and patients with Type 1 EPC had mild impairment of functional status with good response to treatment.
Peter the Great
This is a biography of Peter the Great, Tsar of Russia (1672 - 1725) who was a ruler of phenomenal energy and vision who made it his mission to bring Russia into the mainstream of European life. Avid
Early seizures after moderate closed head injury
Analysing the data revealed that early posttraumatic seizures were not related to the presence of intracerebral parenchymal damage on CT scan and did not affect the mortality and outcome of moderate closed head injury patients.
Chronic periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges.
Six patients with chronic epilepsy had persistent periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) in their interictal electroencephalographic recordings, showing that chronic PLEDs also can occur in patients with long-standing seizure disorders or chronic brain lesions.

Technetium 99m single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) showed hyperperfusion that resolved with further aggressive antiepileptic drug therapy, indicating that this pattern may indeed be ictal.
Nonepileptic Seizure Outcome Varies by Type of Spell and Duration of Illness
Whether differences in clinical manifestations of psychogenic nonepileptic events are associated with differences in outcome and whether the length of illness before diagnosis correlates with outcome is investigated.
