Rolandic Epilepsy

Rolandic Epilepsy: Introduction

Rolandic Epilepsy: A type of seizure where abnormal electrical activity occurs in a part of the brain called the rolandic strip. Symptoms usually only affect the lower half of one side of the face. These seizures tend to occur in children in an infrequent, usually nocturnal, pattern. The seizures are usually mild but can occasionally progress to a more generalized form which affects larger parts of the body. The condition is considered benign and patients usually outgrow the condition by adolescence. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Rolandic Epilepsy is available below.
