Carbamazepine Toxicity Masquerading as Complex Febrile Seizures in a Pediatric Patient.

Richard J Chen, Muhammad Ershad, Maricel Dela Cruz, Ahmed Mamdouh Taha Mostafa,

Carbamazepine is an antiepileptic drug that can cause seizures in overdose. In certain patient populations, this may be misdiagnosed as a seizure disorder. We describe a case of a 20-month-old female who presented with fever and seizure-like activity who was initially thought to have complex febrile seizures. Further historical information ...

Vitamin B6 in acute encephalopathy with biphasic seizures and late reduced diffusion.

Tomoyuki Akiyama, Soichiro Toda, Nobusuke Kimura, Yukiko Mogami, Yoshiyuki Hanaoka, Chiho Tokorodani, Tomoshiro Ito, Hiroyuki Miyahara, Yuki Hyodo, Katsuhiro Kobayashi,

BACKGROUND:The initial presentation of acute encephalopathy with biphasic seizures and late reduced diffusion (AESD) is indistinguishable from that of complex febrile seizures (FS), which poses a great diagnostic challenge for clinicians. Excitotoxicity is speculated to be the pathogenesis of AESD. Vitamin B6 (VB6) is essential for the biosynthesis of gamma-aminobutyric ... Read more >>
