In brief: Common condition

About 1 percent of all children will have symptoms of benign focal seizures.
The eeg will show focal polyphasic discharges in the central-temporal region of the brain, and the child is otherwise normal. Events often occur from sleep. Common age is from 5 years to 12 years. Most are outgrown. There are many names but very similar symptoms.
