Objective Estimate sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) of EEG findings: centrotemporal spikes, photoparoxysmal response, asymmetric photic driving, and asymmetric sleep spindles, for epilepsy phenotype and presence of structural brain abnormalities. Methods In this case-control study we rev...

Heterozygous pathogenic WAC variants cause Desanto-Shinawi syndrome; affected patients have dysmorphic features, developmental impairment and behavioral abnormalities. Seizures are reported in one quarter, including tonic-clonic, absence, and febrile seizures. This study aimed to better understand the phenotypic spectrum of epilepsy and development...

Lateral medullary syndrome is rare in pediatrics. It is characterized by neurological deficits due to an ischemic lesion in the lateral medulla. The authors describe a 17-year-old boy who developed lateral medullary syndrome in the context of a hyperflexion neck injury while diving in shallow water with traumatic vascular injury. He had “crossed” n...

Background: Limbic encephalitis (LE) is a rare autoimmune syndrome affecting limbic system structures and causing variety of manifestations including memory changes, temporal epilepsies, and psychiatric symptoms. It is a rare disease in children but with a well-recognizable combination of clinical, neuroimaging and/or histological signature. Beyond...

Background: Wallenberg’s syndrome (WS), or lateral medullary syndrome is rare in pediatrics, but is not uncommon in adults. It is characterized by neurological deficits due to an ischemic lesion in the lateral medulla. Methods: Case report Results: We describe a 17-year-old boy who developed WS in the context of hyperflexion injury to the neck whil...

Background: AHEM is a rare form of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) characterized by fulminant encephalopathy with hemorrhagic necrosis and most often fatal outcome. Methods: A case report and review of literature. Results: A 6-year-old girl known SCD presented an acute demyelinating syndrome (ADS) with diplopia due to unilateral fourth...
Article
Background: Recurrent ophthalmoplegic cranial neuropathy (ROCN), previously called ophthalmoplegic migraine, is characterized by recurrent episodes of headache and ophthalmoplegia of unclear etiology. Characteristic neuroimaging findings can support the diagnosis. Methods: A case report and review of the literature. Results: We present a 6-year-old...
Article
Recently, it has been shown that the subthalamic nucleus (STN) has anticonvulsant effects on epileptic seizures originating from the forebrain. The aim of the present study was to determine whether the anticonvulsant properties of the STN extend to the suppression of tonic seizures originating from the brainstem elicited by electroshock in rats. Th...
