A fifty seven year old man presented to the emergency at the University hospital with a 3 month history of episodes of arousals from sleep with groaning and deviation of head to his right side. These were followed by a period of “confusion” that lasted for a “couple of minutes”. He had a witnessed “convulsion” in the hospital during this last visit and was loaded with one gram of phenytoin. A computed tomography (CT) scan of the head three months ago was reported as normal. Neurology was consulted for further investigations and long-term management
