Abstract

Under the old term of focal “idiopathic” epilepsies of infancy are comprised a group of epilepsy conditions characterized by localization-related-onset seizures and a relatively “benign” course. These conditions account for about the 20% of children with non febrile seizures. The electro-clinical syndromes recognized by the International League Against Epilepsy (1989) are Rolandic epilepsy, epilepsy with occipital paroxysms, both early onset (Panayiotopoulos syndrome) and late onset (Gastaut type), and idiopathic photosensitive occipital lobe epilepsy.
