Epileptic encephalopathy, early infantile, 7

Common Name(s)

Epileptic encephalopathy, early infantile, 7

Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy-7 is an autosomal dominant seizure disorder characterized by infantile onset of refractory seizures with resultant delayed neurologic development and persistent neurologic abnormalities ({2:Borgatti et al., 2004}). EEG initially shows a burst suppression pattern and later evolves to multifocal epileptiform activity. Brain imaging may show lesions in the basal ganglia. Seizures usually remit by age 3 or 4 years, with improvement of EEG abnormalities and possibly brain imaging abnormalities, but the severe neurologic deficits persist (summary by {6:Weckhuysen et al., 2012}).
