Chorea as manifestation of epilepsia partialis continua in a child

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The authors present a case of a child with epilepsy who developed choreoathetotic movements coinciding with the development of epilepsia partialis continua. His abnormal movements and seizures resolved after successful management of his epilepsia partialis continua with intravenous immunoglobulin and steroid therapy. The authors propose that the chorea was an unusual manifestation of epilepsia partialis continua. © 2004 by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
