Epilepsia Partialis Continua (EPC): An Interesting Case Video
A focal motor variant of status epilepticus is Epilepsia Partialis Continua (EPC), which is characterised by an increased frequency of repetitive and arrhythmic muscular jerky movements that can continue over a prolonged time interval. These movements may affect a group of muscles or a single muscle. These movements are usually stereotyped and might affect the entire limb or hemi-body. EPC is a rare disease and is reported mostly in the form of case series. The incidence is higher in males compared to females and is mostly treatment-resistant. We, hereby report an interesting video of a young girl with EPC, who was managed successfully and discharged in a seizure-free state.
