We report a case of dystonia 12, also called rapid-onset dystonia-parkinsonism, which occurred in a young 12-year-old boy. Type 12 dystonia is a genetic syndrome characterized by a pathogenic mutation on ATP1A3 gene encoding the subunit alpha 3 of Na-K-ATPase protein, resulting in neuronal dysfunctions. It remains a rare syndrome with less than 100 cases described in the literature. Its atypical presentation and its rarity may lead to a wandering diagnosis, even in some cases to a conversion hysteria diagnosis. Today, unfortunately, there is no effective treatment. [less ▲]

A rare case of lacunar skull deformity associated with craniosynostosis Summary : The lacunar skull is a radiologic description characterised by the presence of lacunae in the cranial vault. Its physiopathology remains up to now poorly understood; it is mostly associated with neural tube defects. The association of a lacunar skull with a craniosynostosis has rarely been described in the literature. The case of a 9-month-old patient presenting a multisutural craniosynostosis with a lacunar skull is reported in this article. The surgical treatment allowed to remodel the skull and to hope for a spontaneous regression of the lacunae. [less ▲]

Inappropriate seizure management may result in high morbidity and mortality. We assessed the adherence of health professionals in southern Rwanda to a national protocol for pharmacological management of seizures in children. A questionnaire featuring a 5-year-old child with generalized prolonged seizures was administered. The questions focused on the choice of initial treatment and the sequence of management following failure of the initial treatment choice. Benzodiazepine was chosen as initial therapy by 93.7% of physicians and 90.9% of nurses. Only 49.2% of physicians and 41% of nurses would repeat the initial treatment in case of failure of the first dose and 47% of doctors would wait 30 min to intervene. In case of refractory status epilepticus, 34% of physicians would give three doses of benzodiazepine, whereas 19% did not know what to do. These results suggest poor adherence to national protocol.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, intrarectal diazepam is the first-line anticonvulsant mostly used in children. We aimed to assess this standard care against sublingual lorazepam, a medication potentially as effective and safe, but easier to administer. A randomized controlled trial was conducted in the pediatric emergency departments of 9 hospitals. A total of 436 children aged 5 months to 10 years with convulsions persisting for more than 5 minutes were assigned to receive intrarectal diazepam (0.5 mg/kg, n = 202) or sublingual lorazepam (0.1 mg/kg, n = 234). Sublingual lorazepam stopped seizures within 10 minutes of administration in 56% of children compared with intrarectal diazepam in 79% (P < .001). The probability of treatment failure is higher in case of sublingual lorazepam use (OR = 2.95, 95% CI = 1.91-4.55). Sublingual lorazepam is less efficacious in stopping pediatric seizures than intrarectal diazepam, and intrarectal diazepam should thus be preferred as a first-line medication in this setting.

Summary : Febrile Seizures (FS), despite their usual benign clinical course, are still subject of controversies regarding the need for further investigation and treatment with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Our study aimed to inventory the clinical findings, laboratory and imaging data associated with FS and eventually influencing their management. 275 episodes admitted with FS at the emergency ward of the Liège CHR over a 5 year period were retrospectively analyzed regarding precipitating factors; clinical features; laboratory, electroencephalographic, and imaging studies; as well as treatment response. FS represented 1.4% of admissions to the pediatric service. 31.3% of patients had a family history of seizure disorder. 9% percent of seizures were focal, 11.7% recurrent, and 12.3% prolonged (greater than 10 minutes). Upper respiratory tract and otorhinolaryngologic viral infections were the most often implicated provoking factors, occurring in 69.5% of patients. Laboratory, electroencephalographic and radiographic studies were normal in more than 90% of cases. 73.8% of seizures resolved without intervention. An AED was required to manage the remaining 26.2%. This study confirms the favorable outcomes of FS as demonstrated in previous studies. This happens without requiring AEDs for resolution, and without recurrence. Laboratory, electroencephalographic and imaging studies, as well as initiation of AEDs should be based primarily on clinical severity. [less ▲]

Summary A prospective and descriptive study including 148 children (age: 5-71 months) presenting with febrile seizures (FS) at two Primary Health Care centres in Kinshasa, was conducted over a period of 3 months. Type of seizure (genaralized or focal), its duration, and its characteristic (recurrent or not), were documented, to assess the severity of the disorder. The Psychomotor Development (PMD) of each patient was evaluated, using the Gensini and Gavito scale and then the Psychomotor Development Quotient (PDQ) calculated, according to the motor, communication, and social domains. Main results were: a reduction in PDQ (6.7%), motor delay (5%), communication delay (3.4%), and social delay (2.7%), based on this scale. No significant link was found between global PDQ reduction and markers of FS severity. However, recurrent seizures seemed strongly associated to delayed motor development (p=0.02 [OR=1.096, CI: 1.060-1.128]). These findings suggest that the motor domain could be more affected in children presenting FS, especially those with recurrent seizures. This link needs to be clearly established through larger case-control studies. [less ▲]

Summary : Down syndrome is one of best caracterized genetic syndromes. Its phenotype includes specific morphological features, mental retardation and several organic impairments such as cardiac malformations, cutaneous disorders and immunologic abnormalities. Beside these disturbances neurological disorders have been less considered or thought to be the expression of the mental retardation. However it is important to pay attention to the high incidence of epilepsy such as West syndrome in infants and “Late-Onset of myoclonic epilepsy in Down Syndrome” in the adult. They might required specific treatment. ADHD as well as autistic behavior may be difficult to diagnose especially in children with severe mental retardation. They need precise attention and rigourous follow-up of their treatment. [less ▲]

ABSTRACT Background The immediate prognosis of febrile convulsions is a subject of importance to both clinicians and families. Aim Our study aims to analyse the factors that establish the clinical course in the first 24 hours in children admitted with febrile convulsion Methods 148 children, aged between 5 and 71 months, were prospectively enrolled at their admission for febrile convulsions in two paediatric reference centres in Kinshasa between 10th February and 10th May, 2008. The clinical course over 24 hours was documented and analysed with regard to the clinical features of the initial crisis. Results: 80% of children were less than 3 years old. Based on the clinical presentations, 8 subgroups were distinguished. The 2 groups characterized by the absence (Group 1) or presence (Group 8) of the three identified prognostic factors had significantly different clinical courses over 24 hours (p<0.05). Group 8 contained children with the worst clinical course, characterised by seizure recurrence, neurological deficits and death. Focal type seizures, prolonged seizures and recurrent seizures were all associated with a worse outcome on univariate analysis, but on multivariate analysis, only recurrent seizures predicted a significantly worse prognosis (OR 4.4, CI 2.0-9.6). Conclusion Febrile convulsions present with different clinical characteristics and these have short term prognostic value. Regardless of the underlying cause, recognition of these poor prognostic factors should allow the establishment of appropriate surveillance and preventative treatment measures. [less ▲]
