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 causative. Various animal models have elucidated the pathophysiological mechanisms of FS. Risk factors for a first FS are a family history of the...

Early postictal electroencephalography and correlation with clinical findings in children with febrile seizures
Kyung A Jeong, Myung Hee Han, Eun Hye Lee, Sajun Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2013;56(12):534-539.   Published online December 20, 2013
Purpose

Electroencephalography (EEG) is frequently ordered for patients with febrile seizures despite its unclear diagnostic value. We evaluated the prevalence of abnormal EEGs, the association between clinical findings and abnormal EEGs, and the predictive value of EEG for the recurrence of febrile seizures.

Methods

Data were collected on 230 children who were treated for febrile seizures at Kyung Hee University Medical Center from...

Gyu Min Lee, Kyung Suk Lee, Eun Hye Lee, Sajun Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(9):380-384.   Published online September 30, 2011
Purpose

To investigate the efficacy of topiramate monotherapy in West syndrome prospectively.

Methods

The study population included 28 patients (15 male and 13 female children aged 2 to 18 months) diagnosed with West syndrome. After a 2-week baseline period for documentation of the frequency of spasms, topiramate was initiated at 2 mg/kg/day. The dose was increased by 2 mg/kg every week to a...

Junhyuk Song, Kyuha Lee, Sajun Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(10):1085-1089.   Published online October 15, 2008
Purpose : This study aims to examine and compare the features of rolandic epilepsy. Methods : Of 158 patients selected retrospectively, 116 had typical (group A) and 42 had atypical (group B) rolandic epilepsy, as defined by Worrall's criteria. Results : The age at onset of the seizures in group A was 8.6¡¾2.0 y and 6.2¡¾1.7 y in group B...

Sunghoon Chung, Sungsin Park, Sajun Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(9):891-895.   Published online September 15, 2007
Purpose : Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system and mostly develops after viral illness or vaccinations. We investigated the clinical differences and neurologic outcomes according to the distribution of the lesions on brain MRI. Methods : The study group was composed of 21 patients from January 1995 to August 2003 in Kyunghee University hospital....

Yongjoo Ahn, Hyejeon Chung, Suk Youn, Euihyun Cho, Sajun Chung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(5):529-532.   Published online May 15, 2006
Purpose : To study the spectrum of epilepsy in children with cerebral palsy. Methods : A total of 93 consecutive patients with cerebral palsy(CP) were retrospectively suited. Criteria for inclusion were a follow-up period of at least 2 years. The study examined the correlation between the incidence of epilepsy and seizure types in the different forms of CP. Other factors associated...
