Abstract

Ictal vomiting is considered a localizing sign indicating nondominant lateralization in patients with partial seizures of temporal lobe origin. We report a case of ictal vomiting associated with left temporal seizure activity in a left hemisphere language-dominant patient with a left mesial temporal glioma. Bilateral mesial temporal depth electrodes helped verify seizure lateralization. Surgery consisting of tumor resection and a left anterior temporal lobectomy and amygdalohippocampectomy resulted in freedom from seizures and episodes of vomiting. This case indicates that ictal vomiting can occur as a manifestation of left temporal onset seizures in left hemisphere-dominant patients.
