Apnoea seizures as the only symptom of an ictal event are uncommon. Most frequently they are a particular type of epileptic seizures of neonatal period. Up to now only 11 cases have been reported in the literature in childhood. We report further 2 girls respectively affected by severe myoclonic epilepsy and partial cryptogenic epilepsy. Poligraphic recording of apnoea seizures performed in both patients making it possible to differentiate these seizures from other non-epileptic apnoea events. The ictal EEG features of seizures suggest the deep site of the epileptic discharges in according with the literature data.
