ABSTRACT

La epilepsia refleja por agua caliente es un tipo de convulsión poco frecuente cuya fisiopatología se desconoce. Estas crisis reflejas suelen iniciarse pocos segundos tras el contacto con el agua y, comúnmente, a temperaturas de 37-48 ºC. Los automatismos y las crisis parciales complejas, con o sin generalización secundaria, son el modo de manifestación principal.La exploración neurológica y el electroencefalograma intercrítico no suelen presentar alteraciones, lo que puede condicionar un retraso en el diagnóstico, por lo que es fundamental la sospecha clínica.El tratamiento antiepiléptico se inicia cuando se asocia a otro tipo de epilepsia o cuando ciertas medidas sencillas, como el descenso de la temperatura del agua en el baño, no controlan las crisis. Es posible la desaparición espontánea. Cuando es necesaria la terapéutica farmacológica, existe, normalmente, buena respuesta.Se presenta el caso de un lactante con diagnóstico de epilepsia refleja por agua caliente.


Hot-water epilepsy is a rare type of seizure whose pathophysiology is unknown. These reflex seizures usually begin a few seconds after contact with water, commonly at temperatures between 37-48 ºC. Automations and complex partial crises, with or without secondary generalization, are the main manifestation mode of this type of reflex epilepsies.Neurological examination and intercritical electroencephalography are usually normal, which may condition a delay in diagnosis, and the clinical suspicion is fundamental.Antiepileptic treatment is initiated when associated with another type of epilepsy or when certain simple measures, such as lowering the water temperature in the bath, do not control crises. Spontaneous disappearance is possible; when pharmacological therapy is necessary, there is usually a good response.We present the case of an infant diagnosed with hot-water epilepsy.

ABSTRACT

Eating epilepsy [EE], where seizures are triggered by eating, is rare and has not been reported in the Gulf region. In EE, the ictal semiology includes partial or generalised seizures. Focal brain changes on imaging, if present, are often confined to the temporal lobe or perisylvian region. Therapeutic options, especially in those patients who are refractory to pharmacotherapy, have not been well-established. We report a series of five patients with EE from Oman, a country located in the eastern part of the Arabian Gulf region, and highlight the usefulness of temporal lobectomy in one patient who had medically-intractable EE. Surgical intervention could be considered as a potential therapeutic option in carefully selected patients with medically-intractable seizures
