Abstract

We report the case of a male aged 2 years 6 months with left temporal lobe epilepsy who presented with ictal bradycardia syndrome leading to asystole. The clinical presentation was remarkable for the occurrence of clustering syncope. A seizure was recorded on a video electroencephalogram- electrocardiogram and analyzed. A cardiac pacemaker was implanted and antiepileptic drug treatment was initiated. We suggest that clustering of syncope is an important feature in the presentation of epilepsy in a young child.
