Children with cerebral palsy associated with periventricular leukomalacia frequently develop unprovoked epileptic seizures, with a reported incidence of 16.0% to 47%. Recently cases with early thalamic injury associated with continuous spike-waves during slow sleep syndrome (CSWSS) have been reported. The aim of this study was to investigate in a population of patients with a periventricular leukomalacia the presence of an activation of paroxysmal activities during sleep and their electroclinical characteristics.
