Epilepsy with occipital calcifications is an occipital epilepsy syndrome in which there is more severe epilepsy and a poorer outcome. Almost all cases are associated with coeliac disease, which may be demonstrable only on jejunal biopsy. Other rarer but interesting childhood benign focal syndromes have been described, sometimes in a handful of families only, and include: benign partial epilepsy in infancy, idiopathic photosensitive occipital lobe epilepsy, idiopathic frontal lobe epilepsy, familial temporal lobe epilepsy, autosomal dominant rolandic epilepsy with speech dyspraxia, and benign focal seizures in adolescents.
