Abstract

We commented on the lack of a common language among North-American pediatric epileptologists regarding encephalopathy with electrical status epilepticus during sleep or continuous spike-and-wave during sleep (ESES/CSWS) and related conditions. In our view, there is no reason to consider the term “ESES” as indicative of EEG pattern, or for “CSWS” as the syndrome. On the contrary, it will be valuable to use words and/or acronyms that denote the underlying concept, thus we proposed to use E-SES to account for the Epileptic Encephalopathy associated with a Status Epilepticus durind Sleep.
