  • Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia

    EEGs were grossly abnormal in all patients. In the neonatal period, the “suppression-burst” pattern was observed.[indiana.pure.elsevier.com] At 27 hours of age, he developed seizures (abnormal posturing, cyclic movements of limbs and lip smacking) needing admission to neonatal intensive care unit.[omicsonline.org] We report a neonate with the transient form of nonketotic hyperglycinemia manifested by extreme hypotonia, lethargy, apnea, and myoclonic and generalized convulsions in early[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    As an infant, he experienced periods of apnea that resolved at 6 months of age. He has a history of developmental delay and ataxia.[clinicaladvisor.com] The EEG shows one of the patterns of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. The patient may be photosensitive."[mhmedical.com] ., fumbling, lip smacking , chewing, swallowing) Confusion Anterograde amnesia Aphasia Fatigue , possibly short phase of coma Muscular flaccidity and muscle pain Headache[amboss.com]

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy

    During seizures, patients showed psychomotor arrest, deviation of the eyes to 1 side, hypertonia, and apnea with cyanosis.[omim.org] This is done by performing an electroencephalogram or EEG. This is a painless and non-invasive means of recording the patterns of electrical activity of the brain.[kcnq2cure.org] A seizure can produce symptoms such as: convulsions, loss of consciousness, blank staring, lip smacking, or jerking movements of arms and legs.[genetics.ouhsc.edu]

  • Tonic-Clonic Seizure

  • Familial Infantile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Getting a Diagnosis Doctors diagnose JME with an electroencephalogram (EEG), a test that can find unusual patterns in brain waves.[webmd.com] In some cases, they also cause aimless movements, such as lip smacking or picking at clothes, the repetition of words or phrases, or inappropriate laughter.[massgeneral.org] […] encephalopathy Pitt-Hopkins syndrome Synonyms: Pitt Hopkins syndrome, Intellectual disability, wide mouth, distinctive facial features, and intermittent hyperventilation followed by apnea[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
