We report 47 patients suffering from partial occipital epilepsy. In 11 patients (23.4%) ictal scalp EEG recording is available. We found photosensitivity in 18.7% and 37.5% of the symptomatic and cryptogenic cases respectively. Congenital infections (especially toxoplasma) are frequently recognized among aetiological factors of the symptomatic group. Idiopathic and cryptogenic groups are compared.
