Gastaut type-idiopathic childhood occipital epilepsy (G-ICOE) is a rare form of idiopathic childhood occipital epilepsy. It is characterized by late-onset, brief, frequent, usually diurnal, elementary visual auras which may be associated with hemi-clonic or generalized convulsion. Occasionally the clinical presentation can be overlapped with Panayiotopoulos syndrome. Typical EEG findings are occipital paroxysms. The prognosis remains uncertain, but most seizures are often responsive to antiepileptic treatment.
