Abstract

We describe the clinical history of a 14 year old girl who presented recurrent focal and generalized seizures in association with fever. The patient presented seizures frequently associated with fever and characterized by left side hemilateralization with Todd's paresis. At the age of 5 years she presented convulsive status epilepticus which resulted in permanent left hemiparesis. During the following years, focal,myoclonic and generalized seizures, and recurrent convulsive status epilepticus occurred. Treatment with corticosteroids, immunoglobulins and antiepileptic drugs was successful in convulsive status epilepticus. Neuroimaging findings were suggestive of possible vasculitis.
