Transient epileptic opercular syndrome.
Publication types: Case Reports ; Journal Article Publication Status: ppublish
Ictal transient opercular syndrome is rarely observed in benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes in children, and even more rarely in epilepsia partialis continua and symptomatic focal status epilepticus in adults. Here we report the ictal and interictal neuroimaging and electrophysiological findings in an adult female suffering from discontinuous focal status epilepticus presenting as a transient opercular syndrome. This patient was unusual insofar as the discharges were strictly unilateral, i.e., that even with extensive neuroimaging no structural abnormalities could be found.
