Abstract

DIAZ-NEGRILLO, Antonio. Atypical benign epilepsy of childhood with centrotemporal paroxysms: case report. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.4, pp.283-288. ISSN 0120-8748.

Atypical benign childhood epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes is a rare form of epilepsy that combine partial seizures similar to those seen in benign partial epilepsy of childhood with centro-temporal paroxysms and generalized seizures, also presenting a characteristic EEG pattern of continuous spike-wave during NREM sleep. We discuss the importance of electro-clinical correlation in the correct diagnosis of the disease as well as proper treatment and prognostic assessment.

Keywords : Epilepsy; Epilepsy Rolandic; Sleep (MeSH).
