Abstract

Ictal vomiting is a rare clinical manifestation of temporal lobe epilepsy. This manifestation is considered a clinical lateralizing sign pointing toward seizure activity within the nondominant temporal lobe. However, we have experienced a case of ictal vomiting associated with temporal lobe epilepsy within the dominant hemisphere. The ictal vomiting occurred early in the course of the seizure when rhythmic discharges predominantly involved the left temporal lobe. This patient underwent a left anterior temporal lobectomy and experienced markedly reduced seizure frequency for more than 2 years.
