Abstract

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) is a severe form of childhood epilepsy that is difficult to treat and that has significant neuropsychological consequences. While this syndrome resembles other forms of generalized epilepsy, it displays a marked variation of electrographic findings. Nearly half of patients' seizure frequencies significantly reduced with levetiracetam add-on therapy.
