Abstract :

We describe a patient displaying unusual head tap-induced seizures. The patient is 15 years old and suffers from drug-resistant epilepsy, intellectual disability, and developmental delay. A seizure can be induced in the patient when they receive an unexpected tap to the side of the head. The patient possesses mutations in the GABRG2 and HSD17B10 genes, mutations in these genes are known to cause epilepsy syndromes and may explain the patient’s unusual seizure symptom.
