Abstract

A 26 year old female with right mesial temporal sclerosis presented with events characterized by repetitive piloerection (goose bumps). These events were monitored using prolonged video-EEG. The events occurred at a rate of one per every 15 min, and were demonstrated to be simple partial seizures of right mesial temporal origin. The manifestations included piloerection, cold shivers and ictal tachycardia. These were effectively treated with lorazepam. Acute repetitive pilomotor seizures are rare. This is the first reported case with right mesial temporal sclerosis.
