What is Hemiconvulsion-hemiplegia-epilepsy syndrome (HHE) ?

Hemiconvulsion-hemiplegia-epilepsy syndrome is a neurological disorder, which presents itself as a febrile illness at the onset. Fevers and convulsions are only reduced/stopped via medications. The patient is left with a resulting hemiplegia from the affected hemisphere. MRI and EEG tests show a resulting acute atrophy of one hemisphere of the brain - of which will depend on the severity of the hemiplegia.
