Abstract

The aim of this survey, examining childhood epilepsies with pathological findings in pregnancy and perinatal, was to find out if patient collective was homogenous considering the parameters: type of seizures, EEG and Computer Tomography, or if a further syndromatological differentiation could be made. We found, that on one side our examined population could be divided into two subgroups, based on the combination of seizure type and EEG findings. On the other hand the CAT-findings and the number of focal slow wave activity or of increased tendency to focal paroxysmal activity show a very good correspondence with the diagnostic criteria of our patient collective.
