The most recent antiepileptic drugs used in children are lamotrigine, topiramate, oxcarbamaz6pine and levetiracetam. Their efficacy is proven, depending on the type of crisis, but in Belgium they are reimbursed only in certain conditions. The treatment of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which was only constituted of methylphenidate, can now benefit from atomoxetine whose mechanism of action is different.

The incidence of epilepsy in 110 patients with cerebral palsy (the majority with spastic tetraplegia) was 46,4%. Almost half of the patients with spastic tetraplegia (45%) and hemiplegia (52%) had epilepsy. The incidence was lower in patients with spastic diplegia (32%). Half of epilepsy in spastic hemiplegia were partial seizures and the other half consisted of generalized seizures, while generalized tonic-clonic episodes predominated in all other forms of C.P. A high incidence of West syndrome was observed in patients with spastic tetraplegia. Etiological factors of C.P. were perinatal in 75%. 16,65% had neonatal antecedents of convulsions; most of them had spastic tetraplegia (75%) and a significant mental retardation. A low intelligence quotient (I.Q.) was seen in most of the children with epilepsy, and patients with tetraplegia had significantly lower intelligence quotient than other groups. [less ▲]

Congenital bony fusion of the maxilla and mandible is a rare condition. Two classifications were previously proposed dealing exclusively with craniofacial malformations. Most of the reported cases to date represent either aglossia-aclactylia or hemifacial microsomia syndromes. We report a young girl with bony syngnathia associated with multiple defects (severe microcephaly, coloboma, vertebral segmentation defects), growth and mental delay. This patient is very similar to the patient described by Dobrow in 1983 and confirms the existence of this extremely rare disorder. (C) 2004 Lippincott Williams Wilkins. [less ▲]

Arachnoid cysts are benign congenital cavities arising in the subarachnoid space. Non-traumatic subdural effusion of cerebrospinal fluid is a rare complication requiring surgical treatment. Case Report: A 15-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital because of symptoms related to acute intracranial hypertension (headache and vomiting). The cerebral CT-scan revealed a subdural hygroma adjoining a voluminous Sylvian arachnoid cyst. Two arachnoid cysts were incidentally discovered 11 years before this dramatic complication. Moreover, the patient had suffered a cerebral concussion 2 years earlier, but interestingly did not develop cystic hemorrhage or rupture, contrary to numerous cases previously described in the literature. The location of the cysts and their regular follow-up did not allow foreseeing a cystic rupture. Hygroma evacuation was first performed after which a subdural peritoneal. shunting, using a programmable opening pressure valve, was implanted. Spontaneous rupture into the subdural space represents an unusual complication of arachnoid cysts. Clinical aspects, radiographic findings, pathogenesis and surgical management are described. It is important to point out that subdural hygroma or haematoma should never be excluded in the absence of trauma history, even in the case of small non-progressive cysts regularly supervised.

Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia is important to be diagnosed as an underlying disease in children with syncope and normal heart, because of its poor prognosis. CASE REPORT: A 3-year-old boy was referred for stress and emotion induced syncope. Primary ventricular arrhythmia, consisting of salvos of bidirectional ventricular tachycardia, was reproducibly induced by physical exertion. The syncopal events and severe arrhythmia disappeared with beta-blocking therapy. CONCLUSION: Despite its rare occurrence, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia is an important cause of stress and emotion induced syncope and sudden death in children. [less ▲]

We report on two sisters who show a similar pattern of anomalies consisting of bilateral Stilling-Turk-Duane retraction syndrome (type 3), non-progressive hypotonia with delayed motor milestones but normal intelligence, severe, early onset scoliosis, and short stature. Muscular biopsy revealed numerous regenerating fibers, but no specific abnormalities among the non-regenerating fibers. This combination of anomalies has not been previously reported, and could represent a new autosomal recessive syndrome. The only differential diagnosis is Crisfield-Dretakis-Sharpe syndrome, a combination of lateral gaze palsy, ptosis, and scoliosis without hypotonia, recessively inherited. [less ▲]

To formally document the presence of the bacillus of Koch in meninges still remains difficult and depends on many variables. We report two cases where the diagnosis proved difficult. The presentation of tuberculous meningitis can take several aspects. Mantoux reaction is frequently negative. The BK cultures, which demonstrate the diagnosis, depend on the volume of CSF and on the importance of BK dissemination. It, unfortunately, remains difficult to make the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis even though this pathology can have extremely deleterious consequences. [less ▲]

We describe 2 new cases of Alexander's disease, the first to be reported in Belgium. The first patient, a 4-year-old girl, presented with progressive megalencephaly, mental retardation, spastic tetraparesis, ataxia and epilepsy: post-mortem examination showed widespread myelin loss with Rosenthal fibers (RFs) accumulation throughout the neuraxis. She was the third of heterozygotic twins, the 2 others having developed normally and being alive at age 5 years. The second patient developed at age 10 years and over a decade spastic paraparesis, palatal myoclonus, nystagmus, thoracic hyperkyphosis and thoraco-lumbar scoliosis with radiological findings of bilateral anterior leukoencephalopathy. Brain stereotactic biopsy at age 16 years demonstrated numerous RFs. With these 2 cases, we review the literature on the various clinico-pathological conditions reported as Alexander's disease. We discuss the nosology of this entity and the pathogeny of RFs formation and dysmyelination. Clues to the diagnosis of this encephalopathy in the living patient are briefly described. [less ▲]
