Epilepsy & Seizures
Landau-Kleffner syndrome, or acquired epileptic aphasia, is an epileptic encephalopathy. Acquired aphasia is the more prominent feature because seizures are present in only 70% to 80% of patients. Verbal auditory agnosia is present in all patients, and in many cases the first diagnosis is hearing loss. Variable time may elapse between the loss of the ability to understand language and the expressive aphasia.
