Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Reading epilepsy is a rare type of reflex epilepsy. The seizures often comprise facial twitching and alexia, but can be difficult to recognise and mistaken for non-epileptic events. Previous reports have identified reading of printed text, television and computer screens as inducing seizures, but hand-held digital media have not been implicated. We report a 44-year-old woman with difficulty using the text message function of her mobile phone with a long background of unrecognised reading-induced seizures.
