What is Petit Mal?
Petit mal is the lesser type of epileptic seizure, which is idiopathic. It consists of brief periods (seconds) of unconsciousness, when the eyes stare blankly but posture is maintained. Children suffering from it frequently may have learning difficulties but the condition may disappear in adult life.
