A long-term follow-up study of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) ( > 10 years) was conducted with 38 patients with severe motor and intellectual disabilities (SMID) to clarify the relationship between the rapid development of dysphagia and epileptic seizures, and to elucidate the long-term evolution of LGS in patients with SMID. Those who showed a relatively favourable seizure outcome were compared to those with a poor seizure outcome. Poor seizure outcome correlated strongly with: (a) an early appearance of dysphagia and additional deterioration of the already retarded mental function; (b) a predominance of atypical absence seizures; and (c) persistent frequent epileptiform discharges during electroencephalographic evaluations...

Mentally handicapped patients with esophageal pathology may present a diagnostic challenge, as they may not complain of any specific symptoms or be able to give a clear history of either dysphagia or odynophagia. This paper reports 2 such patients who recently presented to the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals. In the first case, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy under general anesthesia enabled both the identification and removal of a large esophageal foreign body. In the second case, repeated upper gastrointestinal endoscopy facilitated both the identification and nonsurgical management of a paraesophageal abscess...
