Sample text

Detailed ictal symptoms of frontal lobe seizures vary depending on what region of the frontal lobe is involved. Seizures originating from the mesial frontal region or supplementary motor area (SMA) are characterized by vocalizations and abrupt tonic asymmetric extension of the proximal extremities. Consciousness is unusually retained, and postictal confusion is minimal. Lateral dorsal frontal lobe seizures are characterized by speech arrest, forced thinking, contraversive head and eye deviation, and automatisms such as laughing, crying, sniffing, chewing, or kicking.

Occipital lobe seizures are characterized by elementary visual hallucinations of fixed or moving flashing white or colored lights. They start in the contralateral visual field and spread to the entire visual field. The eyes may deviate contralaterally, and the eyelids may rapidly blink. If the seizure spreads to the posterior temporal region, which is known as the area of visual association cortex, complex visual hallucinations may occur. 3 Epilepsy with Diffuse Hemispheric Disturbances Infants and young children with diffuse hemispheric disturbances such as Rasmussen’s encephalitis, vascular malformations, Sturge–Weber syndrome, hemimegalencephaly, and large congenital porencephalic cysts may develop frequent unilateral or generalized motor seizures.

3 Epilepsy with Diffuse Hemispheric Disturbances Infants and young children with diffuse hemispheric disturbances such as Rasmussen’s encephalitis, vascular malformations, Sturge–Weber syndrome, hemimegalencephaly, and large congenital porencephalic cysts may develop frequent unilateral or generalized motor seizures. In case the patients already have severe hemiparesis, hemispherectomy can suppress seizures in 70–80 % of patients and reverse the developmental delay, without inducing further neurological deficit.
