KOL-Index: 60 A child who shows progressive motor and mental deterioration after the first year of life, who has pyramidal signs, marked muscle hypotonia, but no seizures, suggests to have infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy (INAD). Beyond the age of two years, the EEG also entails characteristic findings. Diagnosis may be obtained by an ultrastructural examination of biopsied skin. The respective clinical ...

KOL-Index: 38 Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis is a progressive neurological disorder of children and young adults caused by a measles virus that became defective by persisting in the host. According to the results of clinical trials, antiviral and/or immunomodulatory therapy can slow the progression of the disease and improve life expectancy in patients. However, its long-term effects and eventual ...

KOL-Index: 23 The purpose of this study was to evaluate positron emission tomography (PET) findings in patients diagnosed with infantile spasms and autism. This study includes 90 patients who were diagnosed with infantile spasms at the Department of Pediatric Neurology in the Istanbul University Medical Faculty between 1995 and 2007. Of the 90 patients, 15 patients who were diagnosed with autism using the ...

KOL-Index: 21 BACKGROUND: Benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS), one of the most common idiopathic epilepsy syndromes in children, has been associated with neuropsychological problems. PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to investigate the frequency of symptoms related to comorbid neurodevelopmental disorders, the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and ...

KOL-Index: 21 The diagnosis of Angelman syndrome (AS) is based on the clinical features, behavior, EEG findings, and genetic abnormalities. The physical, clinical and behavioral aspects appear to attributable to localized central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction of the ubiquitin ligase gene, UBE3A, located at 15q11.2. The features of AS frequently become apparent at 1-4 years of age, and the average age ...
KOL-Index: 18 BACKGROUND: Psychosocial and behavioral problems have been reported in children with benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS). Distinctive features of typical BECTS associated with cognitive and behavioral problems have not clearly been defined. PURPOSE: We aimed to identify psychosocial and behavioral functioning and their relationship to seizure timing in BECTS. METHODS: ...

KOL-Index: 15 Bektaş G, Yeşil G, Yıldız EP, Aydınlı N, Çalışkan M, Özmen M. Hereditary spastic paraplegia type 35 caused by a novel FA2H mutation. Turk J Pediatr 2017; 59: 329-334. Hereditary spastic paraplegia type 35 (SPG35) is a rare disorder characterized by progressive spasticity. Mutations in the fatty acid 2-hydroxylase (FA2H) gene in different loci are responsible for phenotypic variability. We ...

KOL-Index: 15 We attempted to classify, according to the 1989 International Classification of Epilepsies and Epileptic Syndromes, 1076 patients examined during a 4-year period (1 January 1988 to 31 December 1991) in the Child Neurology Unit. We aimed to determine the proportion of the clearly defined epileptic syndromes or the non-specific categories of the International Classification of Epilepsies and ...

KOL-Index: 15 In this study, technetium-99 ((99)Tc)-hexamethylpropyleneamine-oxine single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) was performed on 13 children with classic lissencephaly (nine with epileptic seizures, four without seizures). Focal or multifocal hypoperfusions were observed in 12 patients. The hypoperfused areas observed on SPECT scanning did not correlate with the localization of ...
