Abstract

In this paper, three more cases of eating-induced seizures are reported. We have obtained ictal video-electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings for two patients, which confirm the heterogeneity of ictal semiology of these seizures. However, in all the cases the inclusion of this kind of reflex epilepsy (RE) among the localization-related epilepsies (LRE) is confirmed. The usefulness of video EEG monitoring in studying these seizures and reflex epilepsy in general (RE) is stressed.
