Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is an intractable epileptic encephalopathy, with most patients experiencing daily seizures despite therapy with multiple antiepileptic drugs. New treatments need to be tested to define their efficacy in this syndrome. Lacosamide is a new antiepileptic drug recently approved for the treatment of partial-onset seizures. We describe three patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome resistant to conventional antiepileptic drugs whose seizures were aggravated by lacosamide.
