Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cohen syndrome is a rare genetic disorder consisting of truncal obesity, hypotonia, mental retardation, characteristic facial appearance and ocular anomalies. Other diagnostic clinical features include narrow hands and feet, low growth parameters, neutropenia and chorioretinal dystrophy. Here, we report an 18-year-old male with Cohen syndrome associated with focal polymicrogyria and continuous spike-and-wave discharges during slow-wave sleep.
