Epilepsy, childhood absence 2
A subtype of idiopathic generalized epilepsy characterized by an onset at age 6-7 years, frequent absence seizures (several per day) and bilateral, synchronous, symmetric 3-Hz spike waves on EEG. Tonic-clonic seizures often develop in adolescence. Some individuals manifest febrile seizures. Absence seizures may either remit or persist into adulthood.
