|Title:||Clinical, electroencephalographic, and behavioral features of temporal lobe epilepsy in childhood|
|Abstract:||This study describes the clinical, electroencephalographic, and behavioral features of 36 children with temporal lobe epilepsy. Patients were divided into two groups: group A, with 6 patients (< 6 years), and group B, with 30 patients (6-18 years). Statistical analysis was performed considering the significance level of.05. Regarding the clinical features of the focal seizures, motor components were more frequently seen in children younger than 6 years of age (P < .01), whereas automatisms were more frequently seen in patients older than 6 years of age (P < .05). Associated myoclonic seizures were more frequent in the younger age group (P < .01). Behavioral disorders such as hyperactivity and aggressiveness and speech delay were more common in the younger age group (P < .05). Temporal lobe epilepsy in children younger than 6 years of age is more frequently associated with motor components, myoclonic seizures, behavioral disorders, and speech delay. Conversely, temporal lobe epilepsy in older patients has frequent automatisms.|
