The syndrome is listed as Oktahara syndrome in the book Epilepsy in
children by Jean Aicardi. you may also try Early epileptic encephalopathy
The original articles are
 
Ohtahara - early infantile epileptic encephalopathy with burst
suppression developemental aspects. Brain Dev. 9: 371-351
1987
 
and
 
Ohtahara - Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy with burst suppression
In " Epileptic syndromes in infancy, childhood and adolescence" 2nd ed.
Edited by R. Bureau p. 25-34  1992
 
I beleive it is very similar to West sysndrome.
 
Ohtahara has published widely so you may have a good deal of luck with
his stuff.
Cheers
