The EEG records of 64 patients affected by a symptomatic severe partial epilepsy have been reviewed retrospectively. The epilepsy started before age 12. The follow-up was at least 5 years after the onset of the disease. In a longitudinal study of interictal EEG, the following parameters were studied: normal or slightly abnormal EEG records at the onset, late appearance of abnormalities of background, multifocal abnormalities and generalized spike and wave discharges. The study of ictal EEG was performed in 32 patients: a good correlation with the interictal and ictal site of the discharges was found. The EEG semeiology of the seizures persisted unchanged throughout the evolution.
