Abstract

In this paper, the EEG and clinical data resulting from a follow-up study of 18 subjects with fragile-X syndrome are described. Three different types of evolution were observed: 1) disappearance of the already described characteristic EEG pattern; 2) disappearance of the centro-temporal spikes with persistence of the polyspike-and-wave complexes; 3) persistence of the pattern. Simlarities and differences between this condition and the Benign Epilepsy with Rolandic spikes are then discussed and a possible molecular genetics study is suggested.
