We analyse subjective and objective clinical manifestations, in 33 patients, among the 63 with "pure" temporal lobe epilepsy, for which we obtained at least a video-EEG or video-stereo-EEG ictal recording. We compared video-EEG recordings (103 seizures, mean 3.9; min 1, max. 23) and video-stereo-EEG recordings (77 seizures, mean 3.2; min 1, max. 13) with anamnestical data, in order to define the degree of reliability of patient and relatives reports. Overall agreement between anamnestic and video-recorded informations is excellent for subjective symptoms, and fairly good for objective signs. Subjective manifestations (reported in 90.1% of this group) are described in detail as well as the objective ones, these latter split divided into early and late manifestations.
