Abstract

Pilomotor seizures are rarely reported in the literature. Only 1 6 cases have been described up to now. A temporal lobe origin of the seizures was postulated in 10 cases and a cerebral lesion was demonstrated in 9 patients. A 67 year old woman has had four nocturnal tonic-clonic seizures since the age of 63. At the age of 67 brief, very frequent (every 30 minutes) episodes appeared, characterlzed by a sudden, strange feeling of fizziness, beginning in both legs and rapidly diffused to the whole body. Several seizures have been recorded during video-EEG monitoring, showing a right temporal discharge. Neurological examination, CT-scan and NMR study were normal. Phenytoin 200 mg. per day completely controlled the seizures within a few days.
