Sample text

FOLD variant discharges, on the other hand, are seen in females, in the occipital region, with lower amplitude (less than 50 µV for the spike component), and in drowsiness only, and are associated with a lower risk of epilepsy. Less than 30% of patients with FOLD discharges have seizures. The phantom spike is a very-low-amplitude, 6-persecond spike-and-wave discharge that is generally located in the posterior head regions and is regarded as a normal variant. Another discharge with the same general repetition rate is the 14-and-6-per-second positive spike-andwave.

Population studies have shown that this discharge is equally common in persons with and without epilepsy. Persons blind from infancy may have occipital needle spikes, which are named for their very sharp morphology, very brief duration of 10–35 msec, and characteristic occipital localization. Persons with cerebral palsy (CP) will sometimes demonstrate so-called CP spikes in the central (sensorimotor) head region. Needle spikes and CP spikes are not associated with epilepsy. EEG in the Differential Diagnosis of Epilepsy A clinician will often order an EEG when a patient has spells that may be seizures.

Rhythmic temporal q of drowsiness (RTD) is seen in 1–2% of normal adolescents. The discharge is often sharply contoured, sometimes taking on a triangular or saw-tooth appearance. The sharp component is surface negative. Amplitudes are 30–60 µV, and the discharge has a wide field centered on the mid temporal to anterior temporal regions. The discharge may persist in rhythmic form, with frequencies of 4–7 Hz, for more than 10–20 seconds or, more commonly, may appear briefly for 2–5 second runs. On some occasions, just a single wave, sharply contoured, may be seen.
