Video EEG monitoring (VEM) is a valuable tool for the diagnosis of epileptic seizures (ES) and psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES). We sought to determine the benefits of prolonged length of stay (LOS). We retrosp...

Conventionally developed antiseizure drugs fail to control epileptic seizures in about 30% of patients, and no treatment prevents epilepsy. New etiologically realistic, syndrome-specific epilepsy models are expected to...

Insulinomas first presenting as refractory seizure disorders are well documented in adulthood but rarely found in children. Only a few cases of childhood insulinoma have been reported so far. We report on two adolescen...
