Panayiotopoulos syndrome (EEG)

Despite similar clinical features, the interictal EEG is different with occipital paroxysms (upper left), scattered spikes (upper right), repetitive multifocal spikes (lower left), and extraoccipital spikes (lower middle); brief generalized discharges may occur either alone (lower right) or more often, with focal spikes.
