Operculum syndrome in childhood: a rare cause of persistent speech disturbance

, : Operculum syndrome in childhood: a rare cause of persistent speech disturbance. Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology 34(4): 359-364

An infant is described who developed operculum syndrome during an acute encephalitic illness. Presenting symptoms were cortical pseudobulbar palsy and focal seizures of facial origin. Persistent mutism--with normal language comprehension and orofacial motor disturbance--were the main neurological sequelae. Similarities between this case and other permanent or transient causes of cortical pseudobulbar palsy are discussed, as well as the possible relationship with certain types of childhood language disorders.

Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in pre-miRNAs may alter microRNA (miRNA) expression levels or processing and contribute to susceptibility to a wide range of diseases. We investigated the correlation between four SNPs (rs11614913, rs3746444,...
