Abstract

Myoclonic-astatic epilepsy is an epileptic syndrome characterized bv the presence of myoclonic and astatic seizures. It is a rare generalized epilepsy of childhood and represents 1 to 2% of epilepsis in children up to the age of 9 years. In addition to myoclonic and astatic seizures, generalized tonic-clonic seizure, tonic seizure and absence status (non-convulsive status) can be combined. Non-convulsive status can produce apathetic and stuporous appearance. We represent 4-year-old boy who showed nonconvulsive status of myoclonic-astatic epilepsy with typical clinical and eleckoencephalographic characteristics.
