Abstract

We described a 26-year-old Italian man with a definite diagnosis of aspartylglucosaminuria, a lysosomal storage disease, frequent in the Finnish population, with a high occurrence of epileptic seizures. At the age of 24 years he began to present, during sleep, events characterized by stereotyped paroxysmal agitated motor behaviour, that recurred many times a night. The video-EEG recording of the episodes supported the diagnosis of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy.
