Abstract Preeclampsia is a dangerous hypertensive disorder of pregnancy with known links to negative child health outcomes. Here, we review epidemiological and basic neuroscience work from the past several decades linking prenatal preeclampsia to altered neurodevelopment. This work demonstrates increased rates of neuropsychiatric disorders [e.g., increased autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)] in children of preeclamptic pregnancies, as well as increased rates of cognitive impairments [e.g., decreased intelligence quotient (IQ), academic performance] and neurological disease (e...

Neuropediatrics DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1702226Two patients with insular and striatal postnatal scar had epileptic spasms (ES) that were asymmetrical and the only seizure type, whereas none of the usual ictal symptoms of insular seizures occurred. Ictal electroencephalography (EEG) showed the high-amplitude slow-wave characteristic of ES. Vigabatrin remained efficient for over 4 years for one patient and right into the third decade for the other one. Such ES are distinct from infantile and late onset spasms. Furthermore, these observations suggest that in ES insular epilepsy triggers paroxysmal activation of the striatum, and ...

Moyamoya disease is a cerebrovascular disease of unknown origin causing progressive stenosis of the intracranial arteries in the circle of Willis.1,2 Stenoocclusive lesions and the subsequent hemodynamic compromise result in the formation of dilated, fragile collateral vessels at the base of the brain, which are termed moyamoya vessels. The presentation of patients with these lesions varies from asymptomatic to symptoms of headache, epilepsy, and ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Patients with moyamoya disease sometimes have concomitant extracranial arterial stenosis3; of all the extracranial arteries reported, the most com...
