A familial temporal lobe epilepsy with auditory seizures and with linkage to chromosome 10q has been recently described. We have analyzed the frequency of cryptogenic partial Epilepsy with auditory semiology in our epileptic pts. Among over 1500 patients in a period of fifteen years, 16 pts with these seizures have been found. The presence of familiarity in 50% of these cases confirms the probable role of a genetic predisposition.
