ABSTRACT:
Infantile spasms (IS), formerly known as West syndrome, are a type of seizure associated with the epileptic disorder known as West syndrome. Infants and children are affected by West syndrome. Mental deficits are associated with infantile spasms. A particular kind of seizure that starts in the first year of life is known as infantile spasms. Loss of developmental milestones or developmental regression. However, an electroencephalogram is required to confirm the diagnosis of west syndrome (EEG). We describe the unusual West syndrome case.
