  • 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[] The former patient showed moderate mental retardation; however, seizure was controlled to almost one incident a year by levetiracetam and topiramate.[] Autonomic symptoms are often mild with cyanosis, apnea, hypersalivation, and respiratory obstruction only occur following very prolonged attacks.[]

  • Rett Syndrome

    The seizures may be of various types, including generalised convulsive (tonic-clonic), absences (where the child goes blank), myoclonic (jerks), and tonic seizures (where[] All patients had early global developmental delays followed later by severe mental retardation.[] Pia Bernardo, Enza Raiano, Gerarda Cappuccio, Raffaele Dubbioso, Carmela Bravaccio, Emilia Vergara, Silvio Peluso, Fiore Manganelli and Marcello Esposito, The Treatment of Hypersalivation[]
