    A big advance in epileptology has been the recognition of syndromes with distinct aetiology, clinical and EEG features, treatment and prognosis. A prime and common example of this is rolandic epilepsy that is well known by the general paediatricians for over 50 years, thus allowing a precise...

    Panayiotopoulos syndrome is a common and benign childhood autonomic epilepsy of debated localization. Although officially considered as occipital epilepsy, this is most likely of multifocal origin. Ictal electroencephalography is the gold standard of seizure localization, but in Panayiotopoulos...

    Vertigo is most commonly a feeling of spinning, usually due to the disturbance in the balance (vestibular) system. It may result from a dysfunction of the vestibular system at any point from the ear to the cerebral cortex. Epileptic vertigo is a rare form of partial seizures, due to epileptic...
