- •196 patients were studied.
- •Generalized tonic-clonic seizure was reported by 134 patients (68.4%).
- •The ROC curve of the age at seizure onset was an acceptable indicator to anticipate GTCS.
- •The best cutoff point was at 9.65 years (age at onset).
- •The odds ratio of the presence of GTCS in JAE compared with CAE was 3.6.
