The onset, distribution, and spread of the average of 20 centrotemporal discharges for each of 10 patients with typical benign rolandic epilepsy of childhood (BREC) were examined using a computerized topographical mapping technique. A stereotypic dipole field was present along the rolandic region in all discharges. During its most prominent phase, the(More)
The occurrence of spikes during an electroencephalogram is a basic feature of Benign Rolandic Epilepsy of Childhood (BREC). In this study we addressed the question of whether the interictal spike structure is different between "typical" and "atypical" BREC patients. Atypical BREC patients are characterized by having other neurological abnormalities in(More)
The clinical presentation of 366 children with rolandic spikes was examined to determine whether the presence of a temporal-frontal dipole field is associated with a lower incidence of clinical abnormality. Comparisons were made between the clinical presentation of 99 children with temporal-frontal dipole discharges versus 267 children with nondipole(More)
PURPOSE To describe an association between continuous simple partial seizures and independent right and left partial seizures in children with benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BCECTS). METHODS Three children with BCECTS and episodes of continuous simple partial seizures are described. RESULTS All three children had a history of(More)
