PRRT2 mutations are related to febrile seizures in epileptic patients.

Previous studies reported that the proline-rich transmembrane protein 2 (PRRT2) gene was identified to be related to paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia...

Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related epileptic seizures.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related seizures (NKH) are rare. We report a case of NKH-related seizures in a patient following a traumatic brain injury.

Novel GABRG2 mutations cause familial febrile seizures.
To identify the genetic cause in a large family with febrile seizures (FS) and temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and subsequently search for additional mutations in a cohort of 107 families with FS, with or without epilepsy.

Fall related to epileptic seizures in the elderly.
It is well known that both falls and epileptic seizures are very frequent and harmful in the elderly. Moreover, although seizures may cause falls, their relationship is poorly documented in this population. We report four women (mean age: 84.5 years)

Febrile seizures.
Febrile seizure (FS) is the most common seizure disorder of childhood, and occurs in an age-related manner. FS are classified into simple and complex. FS has a multifactorial inheritance, suggesting that both genetic and environmental factors are cau

Febrile seizures.
Simple febrile seizures are generalised in onset and have a brief duration. The American Academy of Pediatrics defines this brief duration to be

Febrile seizures and genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+).
To review the literature about febrile seizures and GEFS plus with special emphasis on management and outcome. Selected literature review. Febrile seizures are the most common convulsive event in humans, occurring in 2-6% of the population. The aetio

Trichotillomania and non-epileptic seizures as sleep-related dissociative phenomena.
The occurrence of non-epileptic seizures (NES) and trichotillomania during sleep is rare. We describe the case of an adult woman with a personal history of childhood maltreatment and psychiatric morbidity (major depression, trichotillomania, and conv

Predicting epileptic seizures in advance.
Epilepsy is the second most common neurological disorder, affecting 0.6-0.8% of the world's population. In this neurological disorder, abnormal activity of the brain causes seizures, the nature of which tend to be sudden. Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs) a

Atypical course in individuals from Spanish families with benign familial infantile seizures and mutations in the PRRT2 gene.
A benign prognosis has been claimed in benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS). However, few studies have assessed the long-term evolution of these patients. The objective of this study is to describe atypical courses and presentations in BFIS fami
