The clinical, EEG and tomographic characteristics of 14 subjects affected by congenital ocular malformation were studied. In all cases mental retardation was present with associated alteration of language and motor impairment. The EEG in all cases showed an absence of alpha rhythms in the posterior areas and in 10 cases interictal paroxysmal abnormalities. Such anomalies whether unilateral or bilateral prefer the occipital areas. The constant presence of mental retardation, the elevated number of subjects with focal EEG finding (10 cases), and with evidence of various malformations with CT in 5 cases, were not accompanied by a significant association with epilepsy. Effectively only 3 patients present epileptic seizures and only one of them has CT lesions.
