We have reported the case of a 6 year old child, who suffered speech disturbances as focal epileptic manifestation with rolandic spikes. This deficit interferes with simple volontary promotor functions and complex movements, including speech production, probably depending on the localization of epileptic focus around the perisilvyan region. We have discussed EEG and clinical features of this patient compared with those of Landau Kleffner syndrome and Benign Partial Epilepsy of Childhood with Rolandic Spikes.
