EPILESSIE GENERALIZZATE IDIOPATICHE: STUDIO ELETTROCLINICO DI CASI DI NUOVA DIAGNOSI

Translated title of the contribution: Generalized epilepsies: An electroclinical study of recently diagnosed cases

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We analyzed the electroclinical picture of 65 patients affected by different forms of generalized epilepsy. They were classified as Childhood Absence Epilepsy in 15 cases; Juvenile Absence Epilepsy in 4 cases; Benign Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy in 4 cases; Epilepsy with Myoclonic Absences in 4 cases; Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy in 5 cases; Generalized Epilepsy with Convulsive Seizures in 23 cases. In 8 further cases with frequent absences the picture was dominated by excessive myoclonias and EEG polyspike component more similar to a myoclonic idiopathic age-related syndrome. The frequent observation of cases with atypical features suggests a continuity between different forms of idiopathic generalized epilepsy.
