Note the rhythmic myoclonic jerks during the first 4 seconds of the discharge in this 7-year-old boy. He is unresponsive. There are automatisms after the end of the myoclonic jerks. The absence is terminated with somatosensory stimulation. Prognosis was excellent. (Contributed by Dr. C P Panayiotopoulos. From: Panayiotopoulos CP.
