Abstract
A 57-year-old female was hospitalized for visual disturbance and right hemiparesis. MRI revealed cortical and sub-cortical infarcts in the left occipito-parietal area. One week later, she experienced paroxysmal electric shock like pain on the dorsum of her right hand. All analgesics failed to relieve her pain, but an antiepileptic drug eradicated the pain com-pletely. This unusual seizure could have been misdiagnosed as a thalamic or pseudothalamic pain syndrome had an ictal EEG not been performed. We report the post-stroke somatosensory seizure, only with unilateral ictal pain.J Korean Neurol Assoc 19(1):49~51, 2001Key Words : Ictal pain, Painful seizure, Stroke
