Abstract

Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) has previously been reported in only two patients with Leigh syndrome (LS). We report here a subject in whom LS and partial deficit of cytochrome c oxidase (COX) were associated with EPC. Epilepsy in this subject appeared when neurologic impairment was clearly evident and MRI showed cortical lesions typically associated with congenital lactic acidosis.
