Abstract

Authentic facial myoclonus without involvement of any other body part is very rare. The most common condiction associated with it is Epilepsia Partialis Continua (EPC). We report one case of EPC with subcontinuos rhytmic twitching of his left lower face and tongue, due to a fixed opercular lesion. In this case, clinical, electrophysiology and neuroradiology data suggest an evidence for a cortical origin of facial myoclonus.
