An 8-year-old female child, with normal psychomotor development, neurological examination and MRI brain findings, began to have at age 7 years and 10 months frequent brief paroxismal motor attacks, mainly occurrring in sleep, misdiagnosed as payor nocturnus. Video-EEG monitoring during nocturnal sleep revealed a clinical-EEG pattern typical of supplementary sensorimotor seizures. Carbamazepine 200 mg/day was effective to control seizures.
