PMID:  16948944     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The coexistence of absence and rolandic epilepsy is extremely rare. This coexistence has been attributed to either the treatment or an atypical course of the disease. However, for some authors, this issue remains controversial. We report the case of a 9-year-old girl presenting with both absence seizures and focal seizures consistent with rolandic epilepsy.
