    The importance of visual evoked potential (VEPs) and electroencephalography for diagnosing and distinghishing the infantile (INCL), late-infantile (LINCL) and juvenile (JNCL) forms of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) is well established. Variant forms with protracted clinical courses and...

    We report the electroencephalographic (EEG) features of 22 patients with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL) who were referred to the Neurological Institute of Milan between 1984 and 1998. The EEG data were reviewed, taking into account the different forms of NCL on the basis of age at onset,...

    We reviewed the clinical and EEG features of 30 Italian patients with childhood-onset neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL). The outcome and the EEG pattern of the 4 infantile NCL cases were classic, although the age at onset of symptoms varied from 1.0 to 3.5 years. This latter finding is...

    This study describes the phenotype/genotype analysis of 159 probands with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (37 CLN1, 72 classic CLN2, 10 variant LINCL, and 40 CLN3) collected at the New York State Institute for Basic Research in Developmental Disabilities (IBR). Phenotype/genotype comparison...
