Aim

Typical absence seizures are observed in various epilepsy syndromes, however, few series have focused on early-onset absence epilepsy (EOAE). We aimed to evaluate the occurrence of this seizure type in children under 4 years of age in order to evaluate their electroclinical characteristics and outcome.
