Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS) is a known clinical disorder caused by partial deletion of the short arm of chromosome 4 (4p- syndrome). Besides the electroclinical pattern firstly described in this syndrome, as burst of rhythmic high voltage slow waves in the posterior regions or rapid spike-wave complexes in the centroparietal and parietooccipital regions, recently a new pattern with repetitive rapid posterior spikes has been identified in few patients. We report a case of WHS presenting an EEG pattern similar to the one more recently described.
