Multimodal Management of Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome in a 17-Year-Old Male
New-onset refractory status epilepticus (NORSE) is a clinical presentation, not a specific diagnosis, in which healthy people are suddenly struck by prolonged seizures that do not respond to at least two anti-seizure drugs and do not have a clear structural, toxic, or metabolic cause.Febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES) is considered a sub-category of NORSE. Our patient is a 17-y...

Currently, algorithms aiming to predict seizures suffer from a high f...
Testing for pharmacogenomic predictors of ppRNFL thinning in individuals exposed to vigabatrin
CONCLUSION: We set out to identify common genetic predictors for VGB induced ppRNFL thinning. Results suggest that large-effect common genetic predictors are unlikely to exist for ppRNFL thinning (as a marker of VAVFL). Sample size was a limitation of this study. However, further recruitment is a challenge as VGB is rarely used today because of this adverse reaction. Rare variants may be predic...
