Abstract

Fifteen children with periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges are reported and clinical and radiologic features and outcome are presented. Both structural cerebral lesions and metabolic factors were associated with periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges. Although all patients had seizures, 8 had status epilepticus. Seven patients survived and 8 patients died. Six of the 7 survivors had residual seizures. Periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges in children are associated with acute encephalopathies and there is a high incidence of subsequent epilepsy.
