We report a patient with a generalized frontal-predominant nonconvulsive status epilepticus without clinically apparent altered consciousness. The patient was examined and EEG performed during and after the episode. Severe retrograde and anterograde amnesia during the seizure, contrasting with a preservation of ongoing memories formation that could be assessed only after its resolution, suggests a transient disconnection of access to stored mnesic representations. This unusual memory disorder… Expand
A case of transient epileptic amnesia with radiological localization
TLDR
A 54-year-old man presented to a cognitive disorders clinic having experienced recurrent episodes of transient amnesia over a number of years, with a gradual deterioration in his recall of remote events, despite normal performance on standard memory tests. Expand
Syndromes of transient amnesia
An isolated and self-limiting impairment of conscious memory can occur in a variety of clinical contexts including transient global amnesia, transient epileptic amnesia, and psychogenic amnesia.Expand
Transient global amnesia or transient epileptic amnesia?
TLDR
The patient was a relatively young person: 39 years compared with an average age of 61 with TGA; he suddenly became ‘distressed’; he realized the change and left office; the EEG performed on the second day exhibited right temporal sharp waves. Expand
A case of long-lasting but reversible isolated amnesia of unknown aetiology
We report the case of a 64-year-old man with an acute isolated and prolonged transient amnesic state, The underlying aetiology remained obscure, Brain magnetic resonance examination demonstrated onlyExpand
The syndrome of transient epileptic amnesia: a combined series of 115 cases and literature review
TLDR
It is concluded that transient epileptic amnesia is a distinctive syndrome of late-onset limbic epilepsy of unknown cause, typically occurring in late middle age, and is an important, treatable cause of memory loss in older people. Expand
Transient epileptic amnesia.
TLDR
Transient epileptic amnesia is an under-recognized but treatable cause of transient memory impairment and accelerated long-term forgetting and autobiographical amnesia, which are invisible to standard memory tests, help to explain the discrepancy between normal test performance and prominent memory complaints among patients with epilepsy. Expand
Pure transient amnesia during nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
TLDR
A patient who, during nonconvulsive status, could not perform memory tasks (recall memory), but who nevertheless encoded events into long-term memory is described, which would seem to support Vuilleumier et al.'s hypothesis of a disassociation between these two memory tasks. Expand
Transient global amnesia triggered by the intracarotid amobarbital procedure
TLDR
It is argued that because of its appearance, the associated behavioral abnormalities, and EEG findings, this state was a transient global amnesia (TGA), which may be triggered by stress or angiography during the IAP. Expand
Transient global amnesia.
TLDR
This review summarizes the pertinent clinical features, proposed pathophysiology, epidemiology, imaging, and future directions in understanding transient global amnesia. Expand
Nonconvulsive Status Epilepticus With Neuropsychological Symptoms: Two Case Reports
TLDR
The two patients’ neuropsychological symptoms—visual object agnosia and cortical deafness—were associated with focal nonconvulsive status epilepticus and were successfully treated with anti-epileptic medications. Expand

Absence status (petit mal status) with focal characteristics.
Two patients, aged 23 and 74 years, manifested prolonged episodes of mildly impaired consciousness in conjunction with rhythmical spike waves or spikes (mostly 3/s). This paroxysmal EEG activity wasExpand
Transient Global Amnesia as a Postictal State from Recurrent Partial Seizures
TLDR
It is suggested that “epileptic” transient global amnesia is postictal in nature. Expand
Epileptic Amnesic Syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that an epileptic origin be entertained in patients presenting repeated amnesic attacks resembling TGA or who complain of persistent memory disturbance, after more common etiologies have been excluded. Expand
Epileptic amnesic attacks
TLDR
Two sexagenarians who had recurrent circumscribed attacks of amnesia showed frequent bilateral spikes that arose independently from the temporal lobes, primarily from mesiobasal structures, and these attacks ceased after treatment with antiepileptic drugs. Expand
Memory during subclinical hippocampal seizures
TLDR
The rapidity of recall of a well-learned word list was impaired in 1 subject during ictal fast spiking in the left hippocampus, which may be responsible for a portion of the memory deficits found in patients with epilepsy. Expand
Partial complex status epilepticus
TLDR
The clinical features, ictal manifestations, and EEG phenomena of eight patients with partial complex status epilepticus documented by video/EEG showed confusion, aphasia, motor phenomena, or automatisms associated with recurrent partial electrographic seizures. Expand
Pure amnestic seizures in temporal lobe epilepsy. Definition, clinical symptomatology and functional anatomical considerations.
TLDR
In patients with evidence for bilateral MT dysfunction, a unilateral seizure may presumably suffice to induce a PAS, the contralateral MT structures being unable to ensure normal memory function. Expand
Focal Retrograde Amnesia in Neurological Disease: A Critical Review
TLDR
Current evidence indicates an important role for temporal lobe structures in mediating focal retrograde amnesia, though available evidence points to a greater role for engram destruction/fragmentation rather than disruption of access mechanisms. Expand
Searching for the anatomical basis of retrograde amnesia.
TLDR
It is concluded that the necessary anatomical substrate for the retrieval of old episodic memories lies within the anterior temporal regions and possibly involves an interaction with the prefrontal cortex, and that this damage is dissociable from the medial temporal-lobe damage leading to anterograde amnesia.

TLDR
