  • 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.

    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. Despite briefly losing consciousness, the person recovers fully with no lingering confusion or other ill effects. 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 community-based studies 6,12,32 proportions (%) of presumed identified causes of epilepsy are the following: cerebrovascular disease 11−21%, trauma 2−6%, tumours 4−7%, infection 0−3%, and idiopathic 54−65%. A systematic review17 found that partial seizures occurred in 55% of patients compared to 45% with generalised seizures. In the Rochester study age-specific incidences of generalised and partial seizures were compared; generalised seizures were more common in the first five years of life.
