Abstract

The authors report on a young woman with photogenic epilepsy in whom ILS was productive only when she kept her eyes open. Video-EEG monitoring showed that there was a progressive response: first, eyelid myoclonias, then deviation of the eyes, and later of the eyes and head, to the left, then a generalized myoclonic jerk. This case illustrates the possibility of lateralized motor phenomena in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy and with photogenic epilepsy.
