The authors describe a 33-year-old woman who, from the age of 15 years, presented many generalized epileptic seizures per year starting with right-sided adversion or gyration, several times per month long absences and occasional absence status lasting up to 3 days. In this patient, the hyperpnoea provoked a clinically typical absence status with 3 c/sec rhythmic continuous spike-and-wave discharges which were more evident on the left frontal regions of the scalp. This electro-clinical picture is compared to similar cases described in the literature and its nosological specificity is discussed.
