Benign rolandic epilepsy is one form of epilepsy. With this condition, seizures affect the face and sometimes the body. As a result, the disorder causes problems for some children. It almost always disappears, though, by adolescence.
Both childhood and juvenile absence epilepsy tend to run in families.
These types of epilepsy usually respond well to drug therapy.
