Summary

Childhood absence epilepsy and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy are both subtypes of what has classically been called idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE, EIG; see 600669). For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of idiopathic generalized epilepsy, see 600669. For a phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and childhood absence epilepsy, see ECA1 (600131) and JME (254770), respectively. [from GTR]
