To define possible levels of functional impairment, electroencephalography and evoked potential studies were performed in eight children with Rett syndrome. EEGs were abnormal in all patients, showing generalized discharges in all and epileptic foci in four of them. Background activity abnormalities were not present. VEPs showed delayed latency in two cases.
