Abstract

A girl with Aicardi syndrome was observed to have two distinct types of asymmetric epileptic spasms, as detected by ictal video-EEG recording at three months of age. When the two types of spasm concurred, they showed no mutual interactions based on either clinical or EEG aspects. This observation does not support the hypothesis that the brainstem always plays an initiating role in generating spasms.
