Resumo

In this study, we aimed to evaluate the attentional and executive functions in patients with benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BCECTS) with and without attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) compared with controls and compared with patients with ADHD without epilepsy. We evaluated 12 patients with BCECTS and ADHD (66.7% boys; mean age of 9.67 years); 11 children with non-ADHD BCECTS (63.6% boys; mean age of 11.91 years); 20 healthy children (75% boys; mean age of 10.15 years); and 20 subjects with ADHD without epilepsy (60% boys; mean age of 10.9 years). We used a comprehensive battery of neuropsychological tests to evaluate attentional and executive functions in their broad domains. Patients with BCECTS and ADHD had worse performance in Conners Continuous Performance Test II ( reaction time standard error {[}p = 0.008], variability {[}p = 0.033], perseverations {[}p = 0.044] and in reaction time interstimuli interval {[}p = 0.016]). Patients with ADHD showed worse performance in Trail Making Test B errors {[}p = 0.012]. In conclusion, patients with BCECTS and ADHD had worse executive and attentional performance compared with controls than non-ADHD patients with BCECTS. Regardless of the presence of epilepsy, ADHD also negatively impacted executive and attentional functions but in different executive subdomains compared with patients with epilepsy.
