BACKGROUND: Children of immigrants in Denmark have excess risk for some of the most well-established risk factors for cerebral palsy (CP). OBJECTIVES: To study differences in risk of CP between children of immigrants and children of Danish-born mothers, and explore whether socioeconomic status drives any potential association. METHODS: A register-based cohort study including 1,274,616 children born in Denmark between 1981 and 2007. Of these, 2807 had a validated CP diagnosis in the Danish CP Register...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the predictive factors for status epilepticus (SE) in neonates and prognostic factors for patient outcomes in newborns suffering either isolated seizures or SE. METHODS: A retrospective single-center study from January 2010 to December 2014, included 91 newborns who had neonatal seizures. Among them, 50 newborns experienced SE and 41 newborns presented isolated seizures only. SE was defined as a single seizure lasting more than 15 min or repeated seizures without return to preictal neurological baseline for more than 15 min...

BACKGROUND: Punctate white matter lesions (PWMLs) are small focal patches of increased signal intensity (SI) on T1- and decreased SI on T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). To date, there have been few reports of PWMLs in term born infants. OBJECTIVE: To identify associated diagnoses and factors predictive of clinical outcome in (near) term infants with PWMLs. METHODS: MRI studies and clinical records of (near) term infants, with PWMLs on MRI scans performed in two institutions in the first 28 postnatal days were reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate health-related quality of life (HrQoL) and adaptive behavior in young people with narcolepsy and stress among their parents. METHODS: In a cross-sectional exploratory quantitative study design, 37 young people with narcolepsy (8-20 years of age) and their parents were recruited. Thirty-one had post-H1N1 vaccination-related narcolepsy (PHV) and six had narcolepsy not related to PHV (nPHV). In addition, 40 age- and gender-matched controls (aged 5-20 years) were recruited...

INTRODUCTION: Neurosurgical treatment is recommended for symptomatic syringomyelia and the post-operative radiological resolution of the syringomyelia is associated with an improvement or at least stability of the patient's pre-operative symptoms. METHODS: We reviewed syringomyelia treatment in our centre over the last five years for clinical outcome, surgical complications, post operative MRI and long term symptom resolution. RESULTS: 50 cases of symptomatic syringomyelia underwent foramen magnum decompression and expansile watertight duroplasty...

BACKGROUND: Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that involves difficulties in goal-directed motor coordination, with ineffective control of fine and gross motor movements in the absence of sensory impairment or neurological condition. DCD is frequently reported in children born very preterm (VP) who survive without CP. AIMS: To measure the risk of DCD at school age in a large area-based cohort of VP children and general population controls, adjusting for gender, birth weight by gestational age and age at assessment...

REVIEW
Rolf Kramer, Bruno Lina, Jay Shetty
Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) was increasingly detected in recent years, coinciding with upsurges of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) infections. We reviewed the evidence for a causal relationship between both. Based on reported cases, we provide case definitions for AFM caused by EV-D68 infections to enable a standard procedure for affected patients. Current case definitions are focussing on epidemiological aspects but clinical case definitions are still missing. We propose the following case definitions to be used in clinical practice in order to mirror clinical realities and facilitate a common systematic approach in case management: A possible case is defined as a person presenting with either acute myelitis/paralysis or Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), particularly during periods of EV-D68 circulation...

AIMS: To define the neurological and neuropathological alterations caused by SYNE1 mutations. METHODS: We describe 5 patients (3 males, 2 females; age 3-24 years) from 3 families. The diagnostic work-up included three muscle biopsies and two nerve biopsies in three of the cases. RESULTS: Three different phenotypes were discerned. Two patients showed progressive ataxia, mental retardation, neuropathy and radially deviated thumbs (spinocerebellar ataxia, SCAR, type 8 phenotype)...

REVIEW

We provide an overview on the current knowledge about the association between epilepsy and type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). People with T1DM have a 2-6-fold higher risk of epilepsy than the general population. The onset of T1DM anticipates the onset of epilepsy by a mean period between 1,5 and 2,8 years. These two disorders share four potential distinct pathogenic factors: a) genetic predisposition; b) factors involved in autoimmune responses (i.e. anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies-GADAbs); c) effects of hypo/hyperglycaemia; d) cerebrovascular damages resulting in ischaemic processes...

BACKGROUND: Rett syndrome (RTT) is a neurological disorder characterized by a broad spectrum of symptoms. Communication is a major area of difficulty. Use of eye tracking technology offers a potentially effective method of communication when underpinned by intact oculomotor function. In this study, oculomotor function was assessed using electronystagmography (ENG). However, challenges were encountered when examining individuals with RTT. PURPOSE: To improve oculomotor examination in individuals with RTT by evaluating the challenges encountered during ENG examination...

SLC2A1 mutations cause glucose transporter type 1 deficiency syndrome, whose phenotypic spectrum is a continuum, ranging from classic to variant phenotypes, the latter accounting for about 10% of cases. Very few SLC2A1-mutated patients with a spastic paraplegia phenotype have been reported so far, and they are associated with paroxysmal choreo-athetosis (i.e., DYT9). The authors describe two sporadic children with pure and complex hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) without paroxysmal non-epileptic movement disorders harboring heterozygous de novo SLC2A1 pathogenic variants...

BACKGROUND: Up to 43% of survivors of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) may exhibit fine-motor problems. Information on manual dexterity in this cohort is still limited. OBJECTIVES: We tested survivors of childhood ALL treated with chemotherapy-only for fine-motor function in terms of drawing and handwriting abilities using a Digitizing Tablet (DT) with three tasks for drawing and handwriting of varying complexity, for ataxia using the International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale (ICARS), and for tremor and hand-eye coordination using the Nine Hole Steadiness Tester (NHST)...

AIM: To describe a cognitive-behavioural treatment and clinical outcomes in a series of children with functional neurological symptoms (FNS). METHOD: Thirty-six children with FNS were assessed and of these twenty-two (13 male, 9 female) with a mean age 14.5 years (SD = 2.6, range 6-17 years) completed treatment with cognitive behaviour therapy embedded in routine child and adolescent clinical/systemic practice. Treatment outcomes were measured at baseline and post-intervention on the Child Global Assessment Scale (CGAS), Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), Goal Based Outcomes (GBO) and Revised Child Anxiety and Depression Scale (RCADS)...
