Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is one of the most severe, but also "classic", forms of epileptic encephalopathy in childhood. Despite the development of several new anti-epileptic therapies, it remains difficult to treat, and educational and social support are difficult to provide irrespective of the stage of the disease and age of the patient.
This monograph is one of a new series of affordable, succinct, updates intended for physicians and researchers. The aim is:
– to provide a reminder of the limits, criteria and symptoms and signs of LGS;
– to provide the reader with a rich set of illustrations, showing the different critical and inter-critical electroencephalographic appearances of LGS and some of its etiologies;
– to update our current understanding of the pathophysiological fundamentals of LGS, with a view to identifying potential future treatments for the condition;
– to update treatment programs in the light of recent progress, taking into account the availability of new molecules, the development of specific treatment strategies and the emergence of non-pharmacological therapies.
