The nosology of early infantile seizures and epilepsy syndromes is controversial. There are two age-related early infantile epileptic encephalopathy syndromes that are characterized by early onset of spasms, a burst-suppression EEG pattern, poor response to treatment, and poor prognosis. This paper examines the early myoclonic epilepsies.
