Abstract

The authors report 5 patients with partial epilepsy characterized by infrequent epileptic seizures, subcontinuous and continuous bilateral frontal spike-waves and neuropsychological disturbances. Four patients had clinical and EEG improvement after an average of 3 months with VPA and ESM, one, treated with CBZ, presented an improved EEG but a lowered IQ after 3 years and 8 months. The authors consider this epilepsy part of the benign frontal epilepsy group and they discuss the good response to treatment with VPA and ESM.
