The authors describe the case of a 69-year-old patient, with no previous history of epilepsy, who presented several episodes characterized by transient global amnesia and fever, lasting several hours. During one of the episodes an EEG was obtained, which showed diffuse slowing as well as paroxysmal activity occurring asynchronously on both temporal areas and on one occasion giving rise to a subclinical ictal discharge. No medical reasons for the rise in temperature were found. The patient was treated with carbamazepine and no further episodes occurred.
