Abstract

Introduction. Whole-head magnetoencephalography (MEG) systems facilitate
simultaneous recording from the entire brain surface and deep
structures. Thus MEG may be accepted as a clinically feasible method for
the evaluation of epileptic patients not diagnosed with EEG. Clinical
case. A 11 year-old female, with tonic-generalized seizures since birth.
At the present time, seizures consist of initial focal signs followed
by fear sensation and both eyes and cephalic deviation to the right,
tonic extension of the superior limbs and prolonged apnea. Complementary
examinations (EEG, Holter-EEG, Video-EEG, CT, MRI, SPECT) were normal.
MEG study was conclusive, diagnosing sharp waves in the internal face of
the left precentral circunvolution. Conclusions. MEG study's utility in
seizures' focus localization and pseudo-seizures differential diagnosis
has been demonstrated.
