    Pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy was recently shown to be due to mutations in the ALDH7A1 gene, which encodes antiquitin, an enzyme that catalyses the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent dehydrogenation of l-α-aminoadipic semialdehyde/l-Δ1-piperideine 6-carboxylate. However, whilst...

    The early and late benign occipital epilepsies of childhood (BOEC) are described as two discrete electro-clinical syndromes, eponymously known as Panayiotopoulos and Gastaut syndromes. Our aim was to explore the clinical features, classification and clinical genetics of these syndromes using...

    Pyridoxine-dependent Epilepsy (PDE) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder causing intractable seizures in neonates and infants. It is characterized by seizures that are resistant to common anticonvulsants, but patients respond well to the administration of pyridoxine. PDE is caused by ALDH7A1...

    Introduction: Epilepsy accounts for 1% of the global disease burden and about 8–10 million epilepsy patients live in India. About 30–40% of these patients become drug‑resistant and land up with palliative or disease‑modifying surgeries. This is a situation causing...

    Gene identification in epilepsy has mainly been limited to large families segregating genes of major effect and de novo mutations in epileptic encephalopathies. Many families that present with common non-acquired focal epilepsies and genetic generalized epilepsies remain unexplained. We...

    Vitamin B6 is an abundant cofactor in aminoacid- and neurotransmitter metabolism. Physiologic availability depends on dietary supply, intact absorption and conversion of pyridoxamine and pyridoxine into the only active cofactor, pyridoxal-5'-phosphate (PLP) in liver. By now we know of four...

    Background: In tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), a substantially increased risk of developing epilepsy is present as a result of a disruption of a TSC gene expression in the brain and secondary abnormal cellular differentiation, migration, and proliferation. Dysregulated excitation probably has...

    Background: Pyridoxine dependent epilepsy is a rare cause of seizures in childhood. The diagnosis is made on clinical criteria, that in many cases are never met. Therefore, epidemiological data on pyridoxine dependency are scarce. Aims: To study the epidemiology of pyridoxine dependent epilepsy...

    Background: Comorbidity of Autism Spectrum Disorders with seizures or abnormal EEG (Autism-Epilepsy Phenotype) suggests shared pathomechanisms, and might be a starting point to identify distinct populations within the clinical complexity of the autistic spectrum. In this study, we tried to...

    The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the electroclinical features and pathophysiological findings, as well as the neuropsychological characteristics of absence epilepsies. Absence seizures are primary generalized, non-convulsive seizures. The classical clinical manifestations...
