Abstract

A 33-year-old woman of borderline normal intelligence had catamenial absence status epilepticus and absences since early teens, diagnosed as temporal lobe epilepsy. Clinical and video-EEG evaluation documented that she suffers from a rare epileptic condition manifested with fixation-off sensitivity, absences, absence status, and infrequent generalized tonic-clonic seizures.
