Title: Musicogenic Epilepsy: three cases and a review
Author: Seidi, Osheik Abu’Asha
Abstract: Two young men attending a marriage ceremony were in audience for a dancing show. One of them was a 40 years shop keeper who is known to have well controlled temporal lobe epilepsy on Tegretol CR 400 mg BD for years. He suddenly started to behave out of his character and had no recollection of what he did, but shown that on video. The second was a 53 years business man who was well, suddenly fell from his chair to the ground and went into a tonic clonic fit for about 30 seconds after which he was confused for 5 minutes. He denied recollection of what happened and was in denial till shown a video recording of the event. Later on a brain MRI, an ECG, and EEG were absolutely normal. He will be observed as that was the first time he ever had a fit. The third is a retired school teacher who developed a seizure in a public pus where some music as played. He didn’t link it till he heard the same piece of music at his home and developed a seizure. He was later put to EEG with safety precautions and the same piece was played. He developed marked EEG changes in the left temporal lobe which soon became secondarily generalized. A brief review of musicogenic epilepsy will be presented as well as the videos of the fits. This series may be interesting, educational and and stimulus for further research into the possible epidemiology and mechanisms of music induced seizures.
