A psychotic episode in a 21 yr old male suffering from the age of 14 with generalized convulsions and typical inattention scarcely controlled by antiepileptic drugs is described. The psychotic episode took place after a 'Petit Mal Status', and was characterized by behavior disorders, psychomotor excitement and delusions. During the episode the EEG became normal and epileptic seizures were not observed. Treatment with neuroleptics was followed by reduction of psychic disturbances.
