Hide Abstract
We describe an 11-year-old girl with a seizure disorder who developed fever, rash, rhabdomyolysis, and multiorgan failure 2 weeks after commencing a transition from sodium valproate to lamotrigine therapy. To our knowledge, this patient represents the most severe life-threatening hypersensitivity lamotrigine reaction described in the pediatric literature. We recommend caution when prescribing lamotrigine to children on concomitant sodium valproate, and immediate discontinuation of lamotrigine and the provision of aggressive supportive care in patients with features of lamotrigine hypersensitivity.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
