  • Menkes Disease

    This was followed by modified hypsarrhythmia with less polymorphic background activity in spasms and anteriorly dominant diffuse slowing with generalized and multifocal epileptiform[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] EEGs in focal seizures usually revealed interictal focal epileptiform discharges over the posterior region without focal slowing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] discharges in myoclonic or generalized tonic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
