Benign occipital epilepsy of early onset or Panayiotopoulos syndrome is an age-related form of epilepsy that occurs mostly in early and middle childhood and is characterized by prolonged autonomnic seizures. In the EEG we can find one or more foci frequently localized in the occipital lobe. PS is a relatively underdiagnosed form of epilepsy, as it is likely to be confused with other diseases (eg, migraine, gastroenteritis, syncope, etc.) PS has generally good prognosis - up to three quarters of patients have less than 5 seizures in life.
