This review aimed to describe social outcomes in adulthood for people with a history of childhood-onset epilepsy and identify factors associated with these outcomes; focused on educational attainment, employment, income/financial status, independence/living arrangement, romantic relationships, parenthood, and friendships.

Neurobehavioral problems (i.e., cognitive impairment/behavior problems) are a major challenge in childhood epilepsy. Yet there are limited data in children with early-onset epilepsy (CWEOE; onset ≤4...
Adult-onset asthma is an important asthma phenotype and, in contrast to childhood asthma, is often associated with specific triggers of onset. It is unknown whether these triggers correspond with spec...
Cardiovascular comorbidities of epilepsy such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes are associated with myocardial infarction (MI). Little data on the development of subsequent cardiovascular ...
FSHD is one of the most frequent heritable muscular dystrophies with a large variety in age at onset and disease severity. The natural history and molecular characteristics of FSHD in childhood are in...
The incidence of childhood and adolescence epilepsy varies in different areas and over time. Published reports in the Italian pediatric population are few and there is no information on the incidence ...
The social processes depend on complex cognitive mechanisms, which involve mainly the frontal and temporal lobe regions. Patients with early onset frontal and temporal lobe lesions might l...
Benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes is the most common type of focal epilepsy in children. It is known to be age-dependent and presumably genetic. Age of onset ranges from one to f...
Effect of adjunctive levetiracetam on polysomnography in adults with partial-onset epilepsy receiving a classical antiepileptic drug
The purpose of this study is to determine the best initial treatment for childhood absence epilepsy.
The purpose of our study is to identify gene(s) involved in the cause of childhood absence epilepsy (CAE).
A childhood-onset epilepsy syndrome.
A childhood seizure disorder characterized by rhythmic electrical brain discharges of generalized onset. Clinical features include a sudden cessation of ongoing activity usually without loss of postural tone. Rhythmic blinking of the eyelids or lip smacking frequently accompanies the SEIZURES. The usual duration is 5-10 seconds, and multiple episodes may occur daily. Juvenile absence epilepsy is characterized by the juvenile onset of absence seizures and an increased incidence of myoclonus and tonic-clonic seizures. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p736)
A syndrome characterized by multiple system abnormalities including DWARFISM; PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS; PREMATURE AGING; and HEARING LOSS. It is caused by mutations of a number of autosomal recessive genes encoding proteins that involve transcriptional-coupled DNA REPAIR processes. Cockayne syndrome is classified by the severity and age of onset. Type I (classical; CSA) is early childhood onset in the second year of life; type II (congenital; CSB) is early onset at birth with severe symptoms; type III (xeroderma pigmentosum; XP) is late childhood onset with mild symptoms.
Rare congenital metabolism disorders of the urea cycle. The disorders are due to mutations that result in complete (neonatal onset) or partial (childhood or adult onset) inactivity of an enzyme, involved in the urea cycle. Neonatal onset results in clinical features that include irritability, vomiting, lethargy, seizures, NEONATAL HYPOTONIA; RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS; HYPERAMMONEMIA; coma, and death. Survivors of the neonatal onset and childhood/adult onset disorders share common risks for ENCEPHALOPATHIES, METABOLIC, INBORN; and RESPIRATORY ALKALOSIS due to HYPERAMMONEMIA.
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...

Epilepsy is defined as a disorder of brain function characterized by recurrent seizures that have a sudden onset. (Oxford Medical Dictionary). A seizure is caused by a sudden burst of excess electrical activity in the brain, causing a tempora...
