Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyse the symptoms of auditory aura (AA) in 53 patients with idiopathic partial epilepsy with auditory features (IPEAF). Fifty-three IPEAF patients were interviewed for detailed characteristics of their auras. AAs were isolated in 53% of patients and associated with other symptoms in the remainder. Auditory symptoms were described as: unform, sometimes distorted sounds like hissing or buzzing (72%); negative auditory symptoms like hearing loss or blocked ear (24.5%); experiential AA (40%) characterised by specific acoustic symptoms, like music or structured human voices. Most of the patients were unable to localize the origin of aura (56.6%), in 15% of patients, the aura was bilateral and only 28.3% of patients reported symptoms confined to one ear. In the 13 patients able to specify the side of AA, interictal or ictal EEG showed contralateral abnormalities in six and ipsilateral abnormalities in four. AA are uncommon in TLE. Our preliminary findings precluded any lateralizing value of AA and there was no correlation between side of origin, quality of the aura (complex or elementary; positive or negative) and handness.
