The lateralizing and localizing value of peri-ictal cough in epileptic seizures

Bektaş Korkmaz/ Gülsün Erşen/ Şakir Delil/ Çiğdem Özkara/ S. Naz Yeni

Introduction. Coughing may be observed as an epiphenomenon during or after epileptic seizures. Aim. In this paper we discuss the lateralization and localization value of cough as an epileptic peri/post ictal semiological phenomenon. Material and Methods. Seven patients presenting cough as a part of their symptomatology are presented. We will discuss cough in the context of these seven patients. Results. Six out of these seven patients were multidrug resistant temporal lobe epilepsy patients, all(..)

Effect of plant polyphenols on seizures – animal studies

Władysław Lasoń/ Monika Leśkiewicz

Introduction. Flavonoids are a large group of natural compounds that have been considered to be beneficial in ameliorating some age-dependent disorders. However, a potential use of these compounds in epilepsy treatment has not been systematically reviewed. Aim. This review describes the pharmacological activity of some polyphenols (flavonoids) in different animal models of seizures e.g. pentylenetetrazole-induced seizures, kainate-induced seizures and pentylenetetrazole kindling in rats. Method (..)

Corpus callosum and epilepsies

Gerhard Bauer/ Elżbieta Płonka-Półtorak/ Richard Bauer/ Iris Unterberger/ Giorgi Kuchukhidze

Introduction. Corpus callosum (CC) is the largest forebrain commissure. Structural anomalies and accompanying clinical symptoms are not in the focus of neurologists, epileptologists or neurosurgeons. Aim and method. Anatomy, embryological development, normal functions, structural abnormalities, additional malformations, clinical symptoms and seizure disorders with CC anomalies are reviewed from the literature. Review. The detection of callosal anomalies increased rapidly with widespread use of b(..)

Burns from foul play? No – previously unsuspected epilepsy

Peter W. Kaplan

Introduction. Injuries such as burns may occur from unwitnessed and unsuspected new onset epilepsy with forensic implications. Case report. A young woman was found with >25% 2nd and 3rd degree body burns after an unwitnessed morning event in a shower. Discussion. The onset of tonic-clonic seizures and limb jerks in adolescence with a typical EEG recording of 3–4/second spike/polyspike-and-waves are diagnostic of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME). Worldwide there is a significant morbidity and mo(..)
