Abstract

Absence seizures involve brief, sudden lapses of consciousness and are more common in children than in adults. We report a case of absence seizure in a girl with atypical presentation which was diagnosed by electroencephalogram. She responded well to sodium valproate. Detailed history, clinical examination and use of electroencephalogram for diagnosis is necessary especially when such atypical presentations are encountered.
