Abstract

Electroencephalography (EEG) is one of the main non-invasive methods for examining brain activity. Cranial defects caused by trauma or surgery can lead to artifacts on the EEG such as breach-rhythm. In this article we provide a literature-based definition, pathophysiological features of the breach-rhythm, differential diagnosis between breachrhythm and epileptiform activity, as well as our own clinical case of a patient with epilepsy and breach-rhythm.
