Abstract

Because spasm seizures have been described solely as an infantile seizure pattern belonging to West syndrome, the precise distinction between spasm seizures and West syndrome is no obvious, and the term spasm generates considerable confusion. We describe eight patients, aged between 2 and 14 years, who had spasms but not West syndrome, to confirm that spasms are a particular type of seizure that can be associated to an epileptic syndrome different from West syndrome.
