Abstract

We report a 3-year-old boy with bathing epilepsy clinically manifesting as complex partial seizures precipitated by immersion in warm water during bathing and showering. Two seizures were recorded on video. During one, a simultaneous ictal EEG recording revealed an ictal pattern over the left hemisphere. Warm water was demonstrated to be the specific precipitating stimulus; hot dry towels and cold water did not provoke seizures or EEG abnormalities.
