A girl aged 15 years with Jeavons syndrome (eyelid myoclonia with absences) had epileptic seizures that were spontaneous or reflex-elicited by eye closure and photic stimulation. Ictal clinical manifestations consisted of jerks of the hands, head, and eyelids. Ictal EEG manifested with frequent generalized discharges of spike or multiple spikes and slow waves, mainly on eye closure and photic stimulation. (Used with permission from: Panayiotopoulos CP.
