Nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy presenting as obstructive type sleep apnea.
A 20-year-old man presented with sleep apnea. Polysomnography was performed and it revealed nine apneas and two hypopneas. Contrary to typical apnea, however, rhythmic epileptiform discharges appeared at bifrontal area on EEG just before the start of

Fantastic confabulation in right frontal lobe epilepsy.
Interictal behavioral symptoms in frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) are variable and often difficult to discriminate from other localization-related epilepsies.

Diagnosing frontal lobe epilepsy in the ED.
Frontal lobe seizures are a common form of epilepsy. It has a variable presentation and can often be missed in the emergency department (ED). Missing this diagnosis can lead to a delay in treatment and poor outcome for cognitive function. We hereby p

Altered synchrony and loss of consciousness during frontal lobe seizures.
Loss of consciousness (LOC) in frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE) has been rarely specifically studied until now. In this study we evaluated the LOC in a population of patients with FLE and studied the relationship between changes in synchrony and degree of

Pitfalls in the diagnosis of new-onset frontal lobe seizures.
We reported the case of a young woman who received an antiepileptic drug after a first possible generalized tonic-clonic seizure with no clear inter-ictal epileptic paroxysms in the routine electroencephalogram. Her stereotypical movements decreased

Frontal lobe seizures: from clinical semiology to localization.
Frontal lobe seizures are difficult to characterize according to semiologic and electrical features. We wished to establish whether different semiologic subgroups can be identified and whether these relate to anatomic organization.

Aetiology of cognitive impairment in children with frontal lobe epilepsy.
Cognitive impairment is frequent in children with frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE), but its aetiology is unknown. MRI scans often reveal no structural brain abnormalities that could explain the cognitive impairment. This does not exclude more subtle morph

A case of periodic catatonia, due to frontal lobe epilepsy.
A case history is presented in which acute periodic catatonia was caused by frontal lobe epilepsy. This manifestation of frontal lobe epilepsy has not, to the authors' knowledge, been described before. The authors mention the problems of diagnosis an

Functional and structural network impairment in childhood frontal lobe epilepsy.
In childhood frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE), cognitive impairment and educational underachievement are serious, well-known co-morbidities. The broad scale of affected cognitive domains suggests wide-spread network disturbances that not only involves, bu

Bilateral white matter abnormality in children with frontal lobe epilepsy.
In frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE), interictal discharges and seizures are more likely to spread to contralateral hemisphere and become secondarily generalized. The aim of this study was to assess white matter (WM) integrity in children with FLE using di
