This disorder is characterized by fits or seizures which are often sudden, usually resulting in loss of consciousness.
The symptom here is fleeting loss of consciousness, where the patient (usually a child) may be seen to stare straight ahead into space.

This is more common type of fit. It is characterized by an aura, loss of consciousness with generalised convulsions and post epileptic phenomena. Loss of consciousness is often preceded by a sharp scream. Acute fits can be brought under control.
