Abstract

We report a case of focal status epilepticus (SE) associated with peri-ictal water drinking (PIWD) behavior in a nine-year-old left-handed boy with epilepsy. We reviewed prior cases of epileptic peri-ictal water drinking. Only one adult patient with status epilepticus and PIWD has been reported previously. This is the first reported case of PIWD SE in a pediatric patient with frontal lobe epilepsy. We found PIWD to have no lateralizing value.
