Epilepsy & Seizures
Typical absence seizures are brief (seconds in duration) generalized epileptic seizures of abrupt onset and abrupt termination. The defining manifestations of typical absence seizures are impairment of consciousness and generalized 3 to 4 Hz spike-wave discharges. The clinico-EEG manifestations of absence seizures are syndrome-related. Childhood and juvenile absence epilepsy are the archetypal syndromes of typical absences.
