Characteristics and Dynamics of Electroencephalographic Parameters in Children with Symptomatic Focal Epilepsy

V.V. Salnikova

Abstract


The article presents neurophysiologic features of symptomatic focal epilepsy in different age groups. There had been examined 120 children aged from 1 to 17 years with clinically definite diagnosis of symptomatic focal epilepsy. Symptomatic focal epilepsy has a number of features of its clinical course in children. Most significant prognostic criteria in symptomatic epilepsy such changes in the electroencephalogram as epileptiform activity, slowing of background activity and slowing of background activity in combination with focal epileptiform activity. Electroencephalographic evaluation carried out in the dynamics is also important.
