Abstract

The incidence of absence and occipital lobe epilepsy appearing in the same young individual is quite rare. A fourteen year-old girl has had two types of recurrent seizures: 1)simple partial seizure with secondary generalization probably originating in the left occipital lobe, and 2)absence seizure. Electroencephalogram demonstrated frequent spikes on the left occipital region with or without bilateral synchronization and generalized 3 Hz spike and wave complexes during hyperventilation procedure and photic stimulation.
