Epilepsy & Seizures
Epilepsia partialis continua of Kozhevnikov
Epilepsia partialis continua is characterized by repetitive clonic muscle twitching, repeated at least every 10 seconds for an extended time without impairment of consciousness. It is typically drug resistant, and long-term prognosis is usually poor. Rasmussen syndrome, malformations of cortical development, cerebrovascular disease, neoplasm, and nonketotic hyperglycemia are common causes.
