So far, the literature has reported only two syndromes characterized by a specific or general breakdown in neuropsychological functions in children with epilepsy who had been showing a normal neuropsychological development. These syndromes are the Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS) or "acquired aphasia with epilepsy" and the "epilepsy with continuous spike and waves during slow sleep" syndrome (CSWS). At the neuropsychological level these syndromes have many features in common, and the only reasons for keeping them separate seem to be the type and severity of associated neuropsychological symptoms.
