Abstract

We describe a case with symptoms of transient diffuse right hemisphere dysfunction (hemispatial neglect, dyscalculia, and disturbance of both spatial construction and visuospatial perception) occurring after status epilepticus. The clinical picture of this case suggested to us that these features could be understood as a variant of Todd's paralysis. (C) 2001 BEA Trading Ltd.
