Summary: Purpose: Few reports detailing the electroclinical features of epileptic spasms persisting beyond infancy have been published. We sought to characterize this unique population further. Results: In half of our cases, epileptic spasms were associated with disorders of neuronal migration, severe perinatal asphyxia, and genetic anomalies. Other seizure types number of cases in parentheses included tonic seizures with or without a preceding spasm 13 , partial seizures 11 , myoclonic seizures 11 , generalized tonic—clonic seizures six , atypical absence seizures two , and atonic seizures one.

Myoclonus (Muscle Twitch)
His neurological examination was normal; EEG showed right inferior frontal epileptiform discharges. EEG-fMRI showed increased blood oxygenation level-dependent contrast in the right inferior and middle frontal gyri corresponding to the contralateral motor and premotor cortex responsible for facial movements BA 44, 45, 45, 9 with widespread BOLD signal deactivations suggestive of epileptic network involvement despite a very focal epileptogenic process. We hypothesize that the response of some cases of HFS to carbamazepine, a first-line treatment in the pre-botulinum toxin era, may have been due to its anti-epileptic effects rather than to modulation of facial nerve hyperexcitability. Epilepsia partialis continua EPC represents a cortical rather than brainstem or cranial nerve epiphenomenon that may present as continuous and irregular muscle jerks. In adults, the most common identifiable cause of EPC is cerebrovascular disease. Isolated hemifacial spasms are characterized by involuntary, irregular, clonic, or tonic movements of muscles innervated by the facial nerve.

Chronic isolated hemifacial spasm as a manifestation of epilepsia partialis continua
Myoclonus is a symptom of a disease in which a muscle or group of muscles suddenly starts twitching or jerking. Some common examples of myoclonus are:. These types of muscle contractions tightening are normal.
I really want to keep this short as my story is extremely complicated, in a nutshell i was misdiagnosed with tics and my first neuro. I had my second EEG today, and im starting to wonder if massive facial twitches are normal during the Strobe light? Every time I've had my EEG my face goes crazy at the strobe, it starts off with a grimace and a grunting sound, my eyes are twitching, every muscle in my face seems to be moving.
