A Case of Pure Autonomic Seizure Presenting as Sinus Tachycardia

Tachycardia rarely consists of an ictal symptomatology associated with autonomic symptoms such as sialorrhea, even if it commonly precedes or combines with a limbic aura of complex partial seizure. A 14-year-old boy with recurrent palpitation, chest discomfort, and sialorrhea suffered from a pure autonomic seizure presenting as sinus tachycardia with a neural origin, which had been misdiagnosed as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia without improvement by cardiac medication. The right mesial temporal origin was revealed by video CCTV-EEG with the profile of the heart rate during ictus. Key Words: Ictal tachycardia, Epilepsy, Temporal lobe
