Two foreign language automatisms in complex partial seizures.

Kececi H, Degirmenci Y, Gumus H - Epilepsy Behav Case Rep (2012)

Bottom Line: Ictal speech manifestations with or without loss of consciousness can frequently occur in TLE in which sometimes the patient may remain responsive, even in conjunction with automatisms.Foreign language ictal speech automatism (FLISA) is a rare ictal sign in temporal lobe epilepsy arising from the non-dominant hemisphere.While our literature review revealed no report of CPSs with two foreign language ictal speech automatisms, we here represented a rare case of a Turkish woman with TLE experiencing two foreign language ictal speech automatisms.

ABSTRACT
Ictal speech manifestations with or without loss of consciousness can frequently occur in TLE in which sometimes the patient may remain responsive, even in conjunction with automatisms. Foreign language ictal speech automatism (FLISA) is a rare ictal sign in temporal lobe epilepsy arising from the non-dominant hemisphere. While our literature review revealed no report of CPSs with two foreign language ictal speech automatisms, we here represented a rare case of a Turkish woman with TLE experiencing two foreign language ictal speech automatisms.

f0005: Interictal EEG: generalized spike-wave discharges.

Mentions: On examination, the patient was alert and oriented. There were no abnormalities on neurological examination. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was also normal. Compatible with the reports of her previous electroencephalography (EEG) recordings, her interictal EEG showed generalized spike–wave discharges (Fig. 1) as well as recurrent bilateral temporal lobe spikes lasting 1–2 s which were dominant over the right hemisphere. No changes were seen with photic stimulation or hyperventilation. Potential brain mapping of the patient revealing right temporal focus dominancy, as shown in Fig. 2.
