Focal seizures often secondarily generalize but the reverse is much less frequently documented. The idiopathic generalized epilepsies have the EEG signature of generalized, or bilaterally synchronous spike wave activity and although focal features can be seen, seizures are usually generalized once they commence. Although focal seizures can be seen in some syndromes, it is not well recognized that generalized seizures can become focal during the attack. Here we describe two cases of idiopathic… CONTINUE READING
