Atypical Presentation of Benign Rolandic Epilepsy: A Case Report

Madoori Srinivas, Ramya C, Shanmuga Raju P and Dikshitha K

Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder in childhood. Five percent of children of estimated one or more seizures in childhood, less than 1% have epilepsy. The incidence is high in preschool years. Benign rolandic epilepsy (BRE) or Benign Epilepsy with Centro Temporal Spikes (BECTS) is defined as truly benign partial idiopathic epilepsy characterised by partial motor seizures usually brief, infrequent with or without generalisation and onset during childhood. They occur mostly during sleep and these children recover spontaneously before adolescence without any neurological or cognitive impairment. We report a four year female child with Rolandic seizures who presented with abnormal behaviour and atypical EEG recordings.
