Answer

Answer

Two benign partial epilepsy syndromes of childhood have been well defined: (1) benign rolandic epilepsy (BRE), also called benign partial epilepsy of childhood with centrotemporal spikes [BECTS] and (2) benign partial epilepsy of childhood with occipital paroxysms (BPEOP). Other less well-defined syndromes include frontal and parietal partial epilepsy syndromes.
