Polymorphism of clinical manifestations and prognostic value of detection of BEDC on EEG

Polymorphism of clinical manifestations and prognostic value of detection of BEDC on EEG

Generalov V.O.

EEG criteria have always been the basis of diagnosis in all forms of epilepsy. However, attempts of researchers to use EEG not only as a diagnostic technique, but also as criteria for assessing the prognosis of epilepsy, began to dissociate with clinical realities. In particular, EEG patterns in childhood, occurring in epilepsy, classified as benign idiopathic epilepsy, allowed using the criterion of purity for other epilepsies, including epileptic encephalopathies with BEDC (benign epileptic discharges of childhood). Despite the well-studied clinical and EEG semiology of idiopathic focal epilepsy, even in these forms, the question remains unclear: how to explain the migration and the changing lateralization of foci in rolandic epilepsy, what is associated with a wide range of clinical manifestations of rolandic epilepsy, both in the context of the frequency of attacks and their semiology in different patients, how to explain the different age of onset, the presence of resistance to drug therapy in patients, according to all the criteria of the corresponding RE. The report is devoted to these issues.
