Electrical status epilepticus on eye closure: a case report

P. Veggiotti, M. Viri, G. Lanzi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors present the clinical case of a boy manifesting eyelid myoclonias on eye closure. The corresponding electroencephalographic recording was characterized by unceasing spike activity, constituting a sort of electrical status epilepticus. There was no loss of consciousness or differences between results of neuropsychological tests with eyes open and closed.
