Atypical absence status in symptomatic generalized epilepsy

Video-EEG from a 9-year-old girl who had severe mental and physical deficits due to birth-related brain anoxia. Slow spike and slow wave activity is continuously recorded. Despite video-EEG monitoring, it was difficult to detect overt clinical manifestations. The girl was probably less communicative and quieter during the discharge, which ended when she was alerted by the pain from inserting the drug infusion tube.
