Stato epilettico criptogenico in età infantile

Follow-up di una casistica

Translated title of the contribution: Cryptogenic status epilepticus in children: A follow-up study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We describe the characteristics of 10 patients aged 10 months to 10 years (mean 5 years 8 months) started with prolonged status epilepticus (SE) (mean age 2 aa 9 mm) and admitted successively to our Institute for rehabilitation. All cases were normal before onset. SE, which was in most cases refractory, followed non specific febrile illness in 8/10 children but laboratory examinations on CSF resulted negative. Also other etiologies such as the metabolic one were excluded. All children had cognitive and motor sequelae, which were severe in 6 cases. Seven children after SE, without any latent period, developed focal-multifocal epilepsy, which was intractable in 5 cases.
