We studied retrospectively a population of 98 children with symptomatic (SEO, 44pts), criptogenetic (CEO, 28 pts) and idiopathic (IEO, 26 pts) occipital lobe epilepsy. The semeiology of ictal events in SEO and CEO suggests a frequent involvement of rolandic and temporal cortical areas. Seizures different from Gastaut's CEOP are frequently seen in IEO and should be recognized by the ILAE classification.
