The authors experienced a case of 45-day-old female newborn infant who showed the intractable tonic spasms with series formation and hypotonia. We diagnosed it through the evaluation of the clinical, radiological features including brain CT and electroencephalogram. The suppresion-burst pattern in EEG and clinical features aid to the confirmation of the diagnosis. A brief review of the related literature were made.
Key Words: EIEE, Age dependent epileptic encephalopathy, Suppression-burst
