Diagnostic des hypersomnies paroxystiques recurrentes: Place de la stupeur idiopathique recurrente

Translated title of the contribution: Diagnosis of paroxysmal hypersomnia: The role of idiopathic recurring stupor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The author reports the diagnostic criteria of idiopathic recurrent stupor. In patients presenting with recurring episodes of deep stupor, the EEG may show diffuse fast activity and both the EEG and the state of consciousness react to the IV injection of flumazenil, a benzodiazepine antagonist. This particular entity, still underrecognized, is associated with the presence in blood and CSF of high concentrations of endozepine-4, an endogenous agonist of benzodiazepine receptors. The chemical structure of this compound remains unknown.
