Abstract

Circling seizure in which the patient walks repetitively in samall circles is relatively uncommon and may either represent a benign form of primary generalized epilepsy or occur secondary to a focal epileptic activity. Especially circling due to focal seizure activity has been regarded as rare. The authors report 6-year old boy who showed many repetitive circling behavior toward the left side, running automatism, vocalization and mental confusion for 6 hours. He had a history of relatively intractable epilepsy for 3 years of adversive seizures(turning to the right side), staring and vocalzation followed by tonic fencing posturing with cyanosis. The electroencephalography demonstrated frequent focal spikes in the left fronto-temporal area.
