What Is Occipital Lobe Epilepsy With Cerebral Calcifications?

Occipital lobe epilepsy with cerebral calcifications is a seizure disorder that develops from calcium deposits in the brain.

This condition is characterized by repetitive abnormal electrical discharges within the brain that may manifest as paroxysmal, or sudden recurrence of, visual disturbances.

Q: Where is the occipital lobe?

A: The occipital lobe is one of four lobes of the cerebrum, or upper brain. It comprises the lower rear portion of the cerebrum and mainly processes visual images coming to  it from the eyes through the optic nerve.
