Abstract

The subject of this single-case report is a girl whose absence seizures and the corresponding 3 Hz generalized, symmetrical spike-wave pattern were preceded by continuous, long-lasting left temporal subclinical epileptic discharges probably associated with an atrophic lesion in the hemisphere. The author's meaning is that like in experimental human conditions (stereo-EEG studies), epileptic neuronal malfunctioning of a localized nature is also able to precipitate true absence attacks. This idea is supported by electroencephalographic and pharmacological arguments.
