Abstract

We describe the case history of a 41 years old contrasted left-hand man, born from a dystocic birth, who started to present partial secondarily generalized seizures starting from his 3rd day of life. The seizures repeated with a multimonthly frequence, notwithstanding the antiepilepsy therapy. His RM resulted normal. Dating back to 1990 the patient started to show frequent episodes of priapism, which was being treated with antiandrogens. In June '97, while abroad, he showed priapism for many hours, such to require surgical treatment. The following day he developed a PSG epileptic status. His intercritical EEG showed right central-parietal anomalies. To the already practiced therapy with Carbamazepine and Fenobarbital, it was added Vigabatrin (2gr/day) which lead to a good control of the epileptic seizures (1 every 3-4 months) and to a clear reduction of the priapism, shown when the seizures approach.
