Occipital seizures provoked by intermittent light stimulation (ILS) are rare events. The authors described five patients, age ranging from 10 to 32 years, who presented occipital seizures provoked by ILS. Three presented occipital epilepsies with reflex visual seizures, one presented generalized photosensitive epilepsy with absence attacks, and one is a non-epileptic woman with migraine attacks. Ictal response of the occipital cortex to ILS is a rare type of photosensitivity occurring in various clinical conditions.
