Approximately 60% of all patients with epilepsy suffer from focal epilepsy syndromes. In approximately 15% of these patients, the seizures are not adequately controlled with anticonvulsive drugs, and such poorly controlled patients are potential candidates for surgical treatment and majority are children. Epilepsy surgery in children, who have been carefully chosen, can result in either seizure freedom or a marked (>90%) reduction in seizures in approximately two-third of children with intractable seizures. In the presurgical evaluation approach identifying the location and extent of the epileptogenic zone with a high degree of confidence is critical for successful surgery.. Early surgery improves the quality of life and cognitive and developmental outcome of the child. Surgically treatable epilepsies in children should be identified early and include temporal lobe epilepsy with focal lesions, lesional extratemporal epilepsies, hemispherical epilepsies, and gelastic epilepsy with hypothalamic hamartoma, and can be treated by resective or disconnection surgery. Palliative procedures include corpus callosotomy and vagal nerve stimulation for children with diffuse and multifocal epilepsies, who are not candidates for resective surgery. For children with “surgically remedial epilepsy,” surgery should be offered as a procedure of choice rather than as a treatment of last resort whenever is available.In The middleeast the biggest challenge is to have a well trained team of pediatric neurologist, pediatric epileptiologist with adequate training in epilepsy surgery along with highly qualified and trained epilepsy surgeon.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common child psychiatric disorder of hyperactivity, impulsivity and/or inattention. It is a chronic condition that affects people of all ages from young children through adulthood. Symptoms of ADHD are noticeable and diagnosed at various stages of life although more commonly in children before age 7 years.

In children with ADHD, symptoms may be apparent socially, emotionally, and academically. ADHD may lead to low self-esteem, poor peer relationships, delinquencies, and substance abuse.  Approximately 65% of children identified with ADHD since childhood will continue to exhibit symptoms as adults. To diagnose ADHD, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR) is used.  Approximately 3% to 7% of children from ages 8 to 15 years old meet criteria for ADHD.

The diagnosis of ADHD can be divided into three (3) categories: predominantly inattentive,  hyperactive-impulsive, and combined type, which is both inattentive and hyperactive. The DSM-IV-TR lists nine (9) different symptoms for both categories of inattentiveness and hyperactivity-impulsivity.  To be diagnosed with one of the categories of ADHD, a child must present with 6 of the 9 symptoms of impairment in at least 2 different settings, such as classroom and home. These symptoms must be present for at least 6 months and must not be explained by other psychiatric diagnoses.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was thought to be solely a childhood disorder, often causing significant impairment in academic and social functions. However, increasing evidence suggests that ~50% of children with ADHD may continue to suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder problems in adulthood.

Adult ADHD is often associated with various psychiatric commodities including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and substance use disorders, and it has been reported to cause significant impairment in many aspects of life such as work or legal problems.

The effectiveness of medication and behavioral treatment for childhood ADHD has been well established, and the treatment efficacy of psychostimulants for adult ADHD has also been supported by many studies. However, the reported rates of diagnosis and treatment of adult ADHD are low. At Kids Neuro Clinic we do diagnosis,  in depth evaluations and treatment for children  with ADHD to help them get their maximum potential and prepare them for an adulthood life.
