Clinical features of sleep-related hypermotor epilepsy in relation to the seizure-onset zone

Takeaway

  • Frontal and extrafrontal drug-resistant sleep-related hypermotor epilepsy (SHE) share many clinical features, however semiology patterns (SPs) vary depending on the location of the seizure-onset zone (SOZ).

Why this matters

  • The presence of certain SPs and non-motor manifestations may help to localize seizure onset in patients with SHE.
