[Benign partial epilepsies: 11 cases of frontal partial epilepsy with favorable prognosis].

[Article in French]


The authors report a retrospective study of 11 observations of partial frontal epilepsy. Cases have been selected on the basis of a complete lack of any associated neurological or psychiatric sign and a disappearance of seizures with normalization of the EEG trace for more than 5 years. This peculiar type of focal epilepsy characterized by an EEG frontal spike focus is first shown to share clinical and electroencephalographic signs with other forms of benign epilepsy of childhood and adolescence. Then the predictive value of some electro-clinical criteria to indicate a favourable outcome is examined.
