We present the first documented case of photic-induced epileptic negative myoclonus. A 17-year-old girl had experienced two generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) while watching television. The only EEG abnormality was a photoparoxysmal response (PPR), which was sometimes accompanied by loss of postural tone in both arms. Valproate was effective in abolishing photosensitivity. Negative myoclonus should be included among the ictal phenomena accompanying PPR.
