  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 6

    As the affected children grow up, they develop myoclonic jerking, and their seizures may become refractory to treatment. Synonym: severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy[] Because children with Dravet syndrome always have some degree of learning disability, they will also need a full educational assessment and support.[] Autonomic symptoms are often mild with cyanosis, apnea, hypersalivation, and respiratory obstruction only occur following very prolonged attacks.[]

  • Epilepsy with Continuous Spike-and-Slow-Waves during Sleep

    Many children will have absence (blank) seizures, some myoclonic (jerk) seizures and others will have focal (partial) motor seizures (seizures involving jerks of one side[] People with learning disabilities represent an important subgroup within the population of patients with epilepsy.[] Other conditions with language impairments All types of acquired aphasia (for example, due to brain injuries, tumours or infections), mutism, learning disabilities and hearing[]
