The authors describe a 23-year-old male patientaffected by symptomatic partial epilepsy who presented ictal discharges constantly stopped by sudden unexpected sensory stimulation of auditive, visual, tactile and somatosensory nature. CT-scan showed a small hyperdense lesion involving the right globus pallidus and a marked enlargement of cerebral sulci. The authors discuss the importance of the subcortical and cortical abnormalities found in the eventual pathogenetic mechanism at the basis of this phenomenon.
