Abstract
We have experienced 2 cases of infantile spasms treated with ACTH. They were diagnosed as cryptogenic type within relatively short duration after the onset. With the administration of ACTH, flexor spasms and hypsarrhythmia disappeared. They did not demonstrate any intellectual impair- ment on OPD follow up study. A brief review of literatures was made.
Key Words: Infantile spasms, Hypsarrhythmia, ACTH therapy
