Novel Insights from Clinical Practice
Surgery for lesional epilepsy is well accepted and has a high rate of seizure reduction or freedom.
Epilepsy can be associated with behavioral changes, either due to the underlying lesion or repetitive overstimulation of the epileptogenic circuits.
HHV-6 is ubiquitous and can acutely manifest with generalized symptoms of fever, irritability, rash, and lymphadenopathy, but has a predilection for the CNS like other human herpes viruses.
Viral infection is well documented in the literature, particularly in the immunocompromised host.
Postoperative fever in pediatric patients after tumor resection can be attributed to fastidious difficult-to-grow Propionibacterium or post-craniotomy inflammatory processes and treated with a course of steroids.
Multiple neural tube defects are a rare congenital anomaly characterized by the presence of more than one defect within the child’s spine.
Most of the cases reported in the literature presented with a single defect.
