This study on 27 patients with photosensitive partial seizures revealed that photosensitivity is not closely related to generalized idiopathic epilepsy; about sixty percent of our patients have symptomatic epilepsy and the most frequent aetiology is hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy. Photic-induced partial seizures are not only of occipital origin; at least 29% of our cases present focal seizures of extra-occipital origin.
