The classification of epileptic syndromes in children is not a simple duty, it requires a great clinical ability as well as some degree of experience. Until today there is no international consensus regarding the different diseases that are part of the Idiopathic Focal Epilepsies. However, these diseases are the most prevalent in children suffering from some type of epilepsy, for this reason it is important to know more about these, their clinical characteristics, pathological findings in studies such as encephalogram, resonance, polysomnography and others. In the same way, to explore the possible genetic origins of many of these pathologies, that have been little explored and become an important therapeutic goal. A description of the most relevant aspects of atypical benign partial epilepsy, Landau-Kleffner syndrome, benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes, electrical status epilepticus during sleep and Panayiotopoulos syndrome is presented in this review, Allowing physicians and family members of children suffering from these diseases to have a better understanding and establish in this way a better diagnosis and treatment in patients, as well as promote in the scientific community the interest to investigate more about these relevant pathologies in childhood.
