J Aicardi, F Goutieres
Revue D'électroencéphalographie et de Neurophysiologie Clinique 1978, 8 (1): 99-101
The authors studied 5 patients with neonatal myoclonic encephalopathy commencing in the hours immediately after birth and consisting of erratic, asynchronous, non-periodic myoclonus associated with generalized jerks in 4. The EEG showed bursts of pseudo-periodic activity on a low voltage background rhythm. Neuropathological study showed poliodystrophy in one case and a disturbance of cortical lamination in another. The relation of these cases with non-ketotic hyperglycinaemia is discussed.
