Disease Ontology:8 A childhood electroclinical syndrome that is characterized by brief and frequent absence seizures in children with age of onset between four and ten years.

MalaCards: Childhood Absence Epilepsy, also known as petit mal seizure, is related to idiopathic generalized epilepsy and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy. An important gene associated with Childhood Absence Epilepsy is CACNA1H (calcium channel, voltage-dependent, T type, alpha 1H subunit), and among its related pathways are Calcium channels and SIDS Susceptibility Pathways. The drugs clonazepam and ethosuximide and the compounds amobarbital and primidone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and amygdala, and related mouse phenotypes are no phenotypic analysis and growth/size/body.
