Preview

A 32-year-old woman with a 10-year history of seizures is referred by her neurologist. The seizures were initially well controlled but have recently increased in frequency. She currently experiences one seizure every 4–5 days despite being on two anticonvulsants. The seizures begin with an odd smell and taste, together with what others describe as a ‘glazed look’. She is unresponsive and unaware of events around her for a few minutes, following which she makes a full recovery. She is right-handed and has recently lost her job because of the seizures. She has no other medical history.
