Abstract

A clinical and electroencephalographic study was undertaken on 215 children with complex partial seizures as selected on the basis of the International Classification of Epileptic Seizures (1981). 1) Complex partial seizures were noted in 7.8% of the epileptic children. 2) The ictal symptoms of complex partial seizures closely resembled those of psychomotor triad described by Lennox. 3) Interictal EEG revealed seizure discharges from the temporal or frontal focus in 57.2%. 4) There existed a group with automatism as a main symptom having both diffuse slow spike-waves and focal temporal spikes. This type should be interpreted to be one of secondary generalized epilepsies and be a variant of the Lennox syndrome.
