A 7-week-old female presented with a 2-week history of recurrent, brief spells that consist of bilateral arm and leg flexion (left more so than right). She also had head flexion to the left and leftward eye deviation. Each event lasted less than 1 s, but these occurred several times a day in clusters that lasted up to 10 min. Events were particularly prominent shortly after waking. She was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and started on Topiramate by her local pediatric neurologist. The events persisted without a change in event frequency, despite dose increases to 20 mg/kg/day.
