Rolandic epilepsy is the most common type of epilepsy – affecting about one-sixth of all children with epilepsy in the UK – that means over 10,000 people! So you are definitely not alone.

We will use the simple term “rolandic epilepsy” (RE) throughout this book, although you will also find it labelled elsewhere as “benign rolandic epilepsy” or “benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes” – a bit of a mouthful! Children with RE usually have their first seizure between the ages of 4 and 10 years, and twice as many boys are affected as girls – we don’t know why this is so.
