Abstract

Early-onset benign childhood occipital seizure susceptibility syndrome (EBOSS) recently described by Panayiotopoulos, is an early-onset variant of benign childhood epilepsy with occipital paroxysms. EBOSS is characterized bypartial seizures that are predominantly manifested at night and associatedwith deviation of the eyes, vomiting and impairment of consciousness, but without ictal visual symptoms or postictal headache. The clinical features of our case were consistent with those of EBOSS, and we therefore diagnosedthe patient as having a typical form of EBOSS. Neuroimaging by CT, MRI andMR angiography did not reveal a focal lesion. Interictal single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) revealed decreased cerebral blood flow inthe right occipital region corresponding to the epileptogenic focus shown on EEG. It remains unclear whether our finding on SPECT reflects secondary hypoperfusion due to minor morphological abnormality or immediate functional hypoperfusion. No reference to SPECT in a case of EBOSS has appeared in the literature to date. This report provides a better understanding of benign childhood epileptic syndromes with occipital spikes.
