We analyzed peri-ictal bed leaving (PBL) symptoms in 105 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). All patients were classified as Engel I at the 2-year follow-up visit. Histopathological examination revealed hippocampal sclerosis (TLE-HS) in 64 patients and other lesions in 38 patients (TLE-other); 3 patients had no lesions. We reviewed 412 seizures. PBL was defined as lateralized leaving of the bed occurring during the seizure or up to 3minutes after the end of the seizure. PBL was observed in 28 of 105 patients (26.7%), and in 45 of 412 seizures (10.9%). PBL occurred more frequently in patients with TLE-HS than in patients with TLE-other (32.8% vs 17.1%, P=0.058). PBL was ipsilateral to the seizure onset in 71.4% of patients and 71.2% of seizures (P=0.012 and P<0.001). In patients with TLE-HS, PBL was ipsilateral to seizure onset in 76.2% of patients and 81.2% of seizures (P=0.008 and P<0.001). In patients with TLE-other, PBL was ipsilateral to seizure onset in 42.8% of patients and 46.1% of seizures. There were no differences in the incidence and lateralizing value between patients with right-sided and those with left-sided TLE. PBL is a relatively frequent peri-ictal sign in patients with TLE. The side of PBL in patients with TLE-HS lateralizes the seizure onset to the ipsilateral temporal lobe.
