An early afternoon Polysomnographic recording was performed in 112 epileptic patients in order to better define their epileptic disease. 96subjects (85.7%) slept spontaneously and sleep EEG tracing resulted in diagnóstically useful data in 47.8% of eases, a significantly higher percentage than that obtained from tests performed in basal conditions. EEG activation, mostly linked to light NREM sleep stages, was greater in infanto-juvenile subjects than in adults.
