Epilepsia partialis continua of Koževnikov is rare in children and in their extensive study in the literature, Löhler and Peters 6 mention that children less than 10 years represent less than 10% of the 162 cases reported. In 1972 we had the opportunity to collect 2 infantile cases of true epilepsia partialis continua and in 1974 1 case of focal sensorimotor epilepsia with up to 200 fits a day. In these 3 cases, after eliminating neuroradiologically a space occupying lesion, we decided to explore stereo-electroencephalographically the suspected cerebral structures and we will report here the findings and the results of surgery.
