Abstract

Fifty cases of eating epilepsy (EE) are reported. Mastication of food produced seizures in 49 (98%) and swallowing in 1 (2%). Complex partial seizure was found in 48 cases, the commonest form encountered (96%). EEG was abnormal in 15 cases (30%). The literature and possible mechanisms for seizure are discussed.
