|Title:||Myoclonic Seizures In Symptomatic Temporal Lobe Epilepsy Of Childhood|
|Abstract:||Rationale and objective: Generalized epileptic manifestations may occur in symptomatic focal epilepsies in children, particularly in infants and pre-school children. Our aim here is to report two patients with myoclonic seizures associated with temporal lobe epilepsy. Methodology: Case report. Results: Two children with tumor in temporal lobe presented myoclonic seizures or spasms since infancy besides other types of seizures. Conclusion: Our findings support the idea that myoclonic seizures may be generalized manifestations of focal insults to the CNS, and this pattern may be an age-dependent specific response of a developing brain to a severe insult.|
