In this article, we have traced back the history of typical absence seizures, from their initial clinical description to the more recent nosological position. The first description of absence seizures was made by Poupart in 1705 and Tissot in 1770. In 1824, Calmeil introduced the term "absences", and in 1838, Esquirol for the first time used the term petit mal. Reynolds instead used the term "epilepsia mitior" (milder epilepsy) and provided a comprehensive description of absence seizures (1861). In 1854, Delasiauve ranked absences as the seizure type with lower severity and introduced the concept of idiopathic epilepsy...

We report a case of Hashimoto's encephalopathy (HE), who presented with epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) and a frontal lobe lesion. The diagnosis of HE remained elusive until the serum thyroid antibodies became positive 7 months after the onset of EPC. The histopathology of this frontal lesion showed nonvasculitic inflammation.

In recent years, an increasing number of mitochondrial disorders have been associated with mutations in mitochondrial aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (mt-aaRSs), which are key enzymes of mitochondrial protein synthesis. Bi-allelic functional variants in VARS2, encoding the mitochondrial valyl tRNA-synthetase, were first reported in a patient with psychomotor delay and epilepsia partialis continua associated with an oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) complex I defect, before being described in a patient with a neonatal form of encephalocardiomyopathy...

The latest French Guidelines for the management in the first 24hours of patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) were published in 1998. Due to recent changes (intracerebral monitoring, cerebral perfusion pressure management, treatment of raised intracranial pressure), an update was required. Our objective has been to specify the significant developments since 1998. These guidelines were conducted by a group of experts for the French Society of Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine (Société Francaise d'Anesthésie Réanimation (SFAR)) in partnership with the Association de Neuro-Anesthésie-Réanimation de Langue Française (ANARLF), the Société Française de Neurochirurgie (SFN), the Groupe Francophone de Réanimation et d'Urgences Pédiatriques (GFRUP) and the Association des Anesthésistes-Réanimateurs Pédiatriques d'Expression Française (ADARPEF)...

The distribution of epilepsy types varies by age, etiology, provider diagnostic capabilities, and assessment criteria. No recent US study has examined the distribution of epilepsy types in a large, population-based sample of people with epilepsy. We used MarketScan data from January 1, 2010 through September 30, 2015, to estimate the proportion of epilepsy types among all (N=370,570) individuals diagnosed with epilepsy. We identified cases of epilepsy as individuals with at least one International Classification of Disease, 9th version (ICD-9) diagnostic code of 345...

Pediatric epilepsies are a group of disorders with a broad phenotypic spectrum that are associated with great genetic heterogeneity, thus making sequential single-gene testing an impractical basis for diagnostic strategy. The advent of next-generation sequencing has increased the success rate of epilepsy diagnosis, and targeted resequencing using genetic panels is the a most cost-effective choice. We report the results found in a group of 87 patients with epilepsy and developmental delay using targeted next generation sequencing (custom-designed Haloplex panel)...

Little is known about the neurological control of human sexual behavior. Investigating and measuring this behavior by using quantitative and objective methods is difficult. Insights from lesion studies contribute to analyze the effects of neurological disorders on human sexual behavior. In this chapter, we focus on frontal lobe lesions, brain injuries, epilepsia, dementia, and Parkinson disease to describe human sexual behavior disorders, in order to highlight cortical and subcortical brain regions and neural networks involved in human sexual behavior...

Perampanel is the first-in-class selective and noncompetitive α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid receptor antagonist. It is authorized in the U.S. and Europe as an add-on antiepileptic drug for partial-onset seizures, and for primary generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Single reports have also indicated a potential efficacy for myoclonic jerks. Here, we report a patient whose drug-resistant epilepsia partialis continua completely resolved after adding perampanel. She has remained seizure-free in an eighteen-month follow-up period...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The study evaluated the utility of arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion imaging in Rasmussen's encephalitis (RE). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The hospital electronic database was searched using the search words "encephalitis," "autoimmune encephalitis" and "Rasmussen's encephalitis" for the period of 1 Jan 2015 to 31 Jan 2017. Clinically diagnosed cases of RE for which epilepsy protocol magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with perfusion imaging (ASL) performed on a 3T scanner were retrieved...

Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) is a form of focal status epilepticus often refractory to anticonvulsant therapy. A wide range of abnormalities such as inflammatory, vascular, metabolic-toxic, developmental malformations, and neoplasia cause EPC. Linear nevus syndrome with hemimegalencephaly is one of the developmental malformations that can present with EPC.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the predictors of outcomes and refractoriness in status epilepticus (SE). METHODS: This is a prospective study of 59 adult patients with SE who were admitted to the Emergency Department between February 2012 and December 2013. The effects of clinical, demographic, and electrophysiologic features of patients with SE were evaluated. To evaluate outcome in SE, STESS, mSTESS, and EMSE scales were used. RESULTS: Logistic regression analysis showed that being aged ≥65years (p=0...

Rasmussen's encephalitis (RE) is a rare unilateral inflammatory brain disorder that causes progressive neurocognitive deterioration and refractory epilepsy including epilepsia partialis continua (EPC). We describe a patient with a unique presentation, where right upper limb EPC due to RE began within 2weeks of a concussive left frontal head injury, in a 36-year-old female without other identifiable etiology, no prior neurological deficit nor suggestion of intracranial pathology or infection, and no preceding seizures...

Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) is a rare variant of epilepsy. Cases from China are rare. We present a case series of seven patients to analyze its clinical features, imagining findings, etiology, drug use, and long-term outcome in a single epilepsy center. We made assessments of drug effects twice (Stage I - when they left our hospital; Stage II in March 2017 - by telephone interviews to rate their long-term outcome). The mean duration of the second follow-up was 4.8years. Of the seven patients, four patients characterized motor and sensory EPC and three motor EPC...

OBJECTIVE: The precuneus is a complex and highly connected structure located in the medial portion of the superior parietal lobule. The clinical presentation of precuneal epilepsy is poorly characterized, mostly because these patients have seldom been distinguished from those with other types of parietal lobe epilepsy. The present study aims to improve the understanding of precuneal epilepsy by detailing its clinical features and surgical outcomes. METHODS: Six previously unreported cases of drug-resistant precuneal epilepsy investigated between 2002 and 2014 were retrospectively studied...
