Cognitive deficits are underestimated in children with benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes
Benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes (BECTS) is, as the name suggests, usually considered benign. However, there is a growing awareness that this is not the case in all instances. Many of the children with BECTS have neuro­psychological and linguistic dysfunctions, even after remission of the disease. In patients with classic BECTS, an association with GRIN2A-mutations is reported by several groups, suggesting a possible placement of BECTS at the mild end of an epileptic-aphasia spectrum. Awareness of the possible neuropsychological consequences of BECTS should be considered when treating these children.
