This deficit hinders the development of intentional behavior and appropriate problem-solving, leading the child to implement repetitive and stereotyped behaviors and to have difficulties in reciprocal interactions, empathy and in the development of a the...
Article
Given the rarity of this condition, especially in children, there is a paucity of large reported paediatric case series of anti-N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor encephalitis. To contribute to define the features of this condition, we describe retrospectively a new nationwide case series of 20 children (50% females), referred by 13 Italian centres. Mea...

Succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency (SSADHD), a disorder of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) metabolism, manifests typically as a nonprogressive neurodevelopmental disorder with cognitive deficiency, neuropsychiatric morbidity and epilepsy. Therapy targets symptomatic seizures and neurobehavioral disturbances. We report an adolescent female wi...
