  • Absence seizure

    Absence seizures involve brief, sudden lapses of consciousness. They're more common in children than adults. Someone having an absence seizure may look like he or she is staring into space for a few seconds. This type of seizure usually doesn't lead to physical injury.

  • Absence seizure

    Typically, this type of seizure lasts between 10 and 30 seconds. The person, most often a child aged 5 to 15, abruptly stops whatever he's doing (talking, walking) and appears to "stare into space." Absence seizures rarely cause a true convulsion in which the person falls down or collapses. These "spells" may occur infrequently or several times per hour.  About a quarter of people who have absence seizures will develop another type of generalized seizure called tonic-clonic seizures (formerly called ''grand mal'' seizures). The vast majority of children, however, will outgrow them.

    Based on a prevalence rate of 6 per 1000, it has been estimated that  there are about 96,000 people with epilepsy who require continuing hospital-based medical treatment. Of those, 15,000 will have more than one major seizure a month and 36,000 more than one seizure a month. Overall it has been estimated that there are approximately 12,000 patients with severe epilepsy and additional handicaps who may require institutional care.
