Abstract

Reflex epilepsy is characterized by seizures that are precipitated by a specific identifiable factor. We describe here the case of a 21-year-old man with notable absence epilepsy since the age of 11 who experienced generalized convulsions 2. years after onset (in the absence of antiepileptic therapy) and reflex absence seizures triggered by walking 7-10 steps. To our knowledge, this case report is the first describing reflex absence epilepsy seizures induced by gait.
