The spontaneous pseudoseizures resembling tonic-clonic seizures in 25 patients were recorded on simultaneous videotape and electroencephalograms and were compared with the seizures recorded from 25 patients with true tonic-clonic epileptic events. The goal of the comparison was to identify bedside clinical criteria to assist in differentiating between the(More)
We studied a 24-year-old man who had reading epilepsy after removal of a left frontal arteriovenous malformation. Lesion analysis by means of a neuroanatomic template placed a 2-cm region of encephalomalacia anterior to the left central sulcus in premotor cortex (Brodmann's area 6). Lexical and nonlexical reading activation tests demonstrated seizures(More)
Both ictal nystagmus and cortical blindness may occur transiently in acute cerebral disorders and therefore escape clinical detection, particularly in confused, agitated patients. The following case report describes a young woman with chronic myelogenous leukemia who became progressively ill following bone marrow transplantation. During the course of her(More)
Nineteen epileptic patients with significant history of episodic aggressive behavior were subjected to intensive behavioral and electrophysiologic monitoring for an average period of six weeks in a specialized inpatient facility. Numerous seizures were recorded in these patients but none disclosed ictal aggression. Only two patients showed episodic(More)
In a case of primary reading epilepsy, seizures were consistently triggered by reading, and the associated EEG abnormalities were clearly lateralized to the dominant hemisphere. On the basis of detailed EEG and activation studies, it is concluded that seizures in this patient were evoked by higher cognitive processes associated with language functions and(More)

Atypical facial neuralgia is an ill-defined syndrome of obscure etiology characterized by chronic facial pain. The diagnosis is one of exclusion, made only after carefully ruling out a variety of conditions that may cause orofacial pain. The present study detected brainstem abnormalities on the side of the facial pain through examination of brainstem(More)
