  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    The involvement of these structures might predispose to the typical seizure semiology of myoclonic jerks observed in MAE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Myoclonic-atonic seizures with falls are the defining symptoms. • EEG shows frequent generalized discharges of spike/polyspike-slow wave at varying frequencies of 2.5 to 3[medlink.com] In one half of these patients with poor outcomes, repeated minor epileptic status and nocturnal generalized tonic seizures persisted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
