We describe the clinical and neurophysiological features of 14 non-familial cases of Idiopathic Lateral Temporal Epilepsy. Although the evolution may be variable, a group of patients may be identified with a phenotype fully resembling Autosomal Dominant Lateral Temporal Epilepsy. The relative paucity of secondarily generalised tonic-clonic seizures may distinguish clinically sporadic from familial cases.
