Continuous spike-waves during slow sleep (CSWS) is a characteristic EEG pattern that does not disappear easily with treatment with conventional antiepileptic drugs. The patients with CSWS show mental and behavioural deterioration of various degree during CSWS, reversible or not after disappearance of CSWS. We describe twelve children with epilepsy with CSWS, the electoclinical and neuropsychological features, the treatment and the prognosis.
