Full Text:

Abstract

Abstract: idiopathic occipital epilepsy , not uncommon in practice, pediatric neurologist . According to Panayiotopoulos , they are found in 30% of cases of idiopathic epilepsy (25 % – Panayiotopoulosao syndrome, 4% – Gastaut type ). Particular difficulty is the abundance of autonomous symptoms, the presence of transitional forms of epilepsy, the combination of migraine , which has age-appropriate. In addition, the child s brain is different excitability and registration abnormalities in the EEG is not casuistry . We have provided supervision for children with occipital epilepsy and EEG changes in the occipital region, clinical and medical history characteristics of this group and outcome monitoring for 5-7 years.
