Childhood absence epilepsy is a problem identified by recurrent seizures. Some affected people have febrile seizures before they develop childhood absence epilepsy. Febrile seizures are involuntary contraction prompted by a high body temperature level. In most individuals with childhood absence epilepsy, the absence seizures vanish in adolescence. Some affected individuals proceed to have absence seizures into the adult years, or they might develop generalised tonic-clonic seizures, which cause muscle rigidness, convulsions, and loss of consciousness, or myoclonic seizures, which are defined by rapid, unrestrained muscle jerks.
