Abstract

Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) is characterized by focal seizures that cannot be stopped. The most common cause of EPC in children is Rasmussen's encephalitis. In this video case report, we describe an 11-year old female with continuous lingual EPC for two years. She has shown no signs of Rasmussen's Encephalitis or other neurodegenerative process and structural MRI is normal.
