We report three nuclear families in which affected individuals had the onset during childhood or adolescence of drug-responsive focal seizures characterized by prominent vertiginous auras. The interictal EEG abnormalities were localized around the parieto-temporo-occipital regions and MRI was normal. Genetic analysis excluded epitempin mutations. We propose the existence of a familial focal epilepsy characterized by prominent vertiginous auras suggesting a parietal or parieto-temporal onset.
