The majority of serious epilepsies of childhood are those of severe partial epilepsies. From an electroclinical study about 64 cases of children with partial epilepsy of unfavourable outcome the authors tried to draw the factors allowing to evaluate precociously the elements of prognosis. The severe partial epilepsies are characterized: on the clinical point of view: by an early onset, by the existence of signs of encephalopathy, by association of several types of seizures, or the existence of a particular critical semiology; on the EEG point of view: by the existence of multiple foci, diffuse anomalies associated to focal anomalies, slow focal waves and anormal background activity.
