Purpose: The existence of absence epilepsy and temporal partial seizure pattern in the same patient is an uncommon state. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate whether the process of kindling as a model of complex partial seizures with secondary generalization is altered in rats with genetic absence epilepsy.
