Abstract

Two patients suffering from partial epilepsy with complex partial seizures are reported. The presence of very frequently electroclinical seizures during NREM slow sleep was the peculiar finding in both cases. These seizures were very similar to those described in Lennox-Gastaut syndrome as their ictal EEG pattern, clinical symptoms and frequency are concerned. Other features shared by our patients, i.e. the association of focal or multifocal epileptic abnormalities with diffuse spikes and slow waves, the presence of seizures with fall and the unfavourabe outcome with resistance to the treatment, are often found in partial epilepsy with severe outcome. Our report suggests that EEG recording during sleep in patients with partial epilepsy with severe outcome can be very useful in selecting subgroups characterized by some features peculiar to epileptic encephalopathies.
