- •Epilepsy occurs in about 30% of patients with ATRX syndrome.
- •Generalized seizures including clonic, tonic, myoclonic or myoclonic absences are frequently described in this syndrome.
- •We report on seven unpublished Italian patients with ATRX syndrome, focusing on epilepsy and EEG pattern.
- •We described a typical EEG pattern characterized by diffuse background slowing with superimposed low voltage fast activity.
