Example text

Characteristics of POSTS are sharp-contoured, surface positivity, occurring in trains with a repetitive rate of 4–5 Hz, and monophasic checkmark-like waveform seen in singly or in clusters over the occipital regions. 10,14 POSTS occur during, drowsiness and stage 2 sleep. 1 Normal and Benign Variants FIGURE 122. Posterior Occipital Sharp Transients of Sleep (POSTS). POSTS (Box) can simulate epileptiform activity. Their triangular morphology, persistent lack of slow wave following sharp transients, positive polarity, constant symmetry, and occurrence during sleep differentiate them from epileptiform activity.

This EEG was requested to evaluate for possible seizure as a cause of nystagmus. EEG demonstrates frequent low-amplitude and short-duration spikes in the occipital regions (open arrows). Needle-like spikes develop in the occipital region in most patients with congenital blindness. Functional deafferentations of the visual cortex give rise to an increase in its irritability that make it fire off in this special manner. These spikes are not correlated with epileptic seizures. 19 43 44 Normal and Benign Variants 1 FIGURE 137.

This EEG pattern is seen in children age 6 months to 10 years, but seen most commonly in children aged 2–3 years. 9,10 1 Normal and Benign Variants 35 FIGURE 128. Posterior Slow-Wave Transients (Occipital Sharp Transients); Associated with Eye Movements. Posterior slow-wave transients associated with eye movements is an EEG pattern consisting of a monophasic or biphasic slow transient with a duration of 200–400 msec and a voltage of up to 200 μV in the occipital regions (*). The latency of 100–500 msec is noted after the eyeblinks or eye movements.
