We describe an epileptic syndrome of bilaterally coordinated limb movements, axial movements, vocalization, and nonmasticatory oral activity. EEG and physiologic evidence indicates the syndrome is caused by ictal discharge in the mesial frontal lobes. Two of 12 patients were not helped by anterior temporal lobectomy, and 3 others improved after section of the anterior two-thirds of the corpus callosum.
