Abstract

We studied a 34-year-old man with focal tonic-clonic seizures sometimes elicited by some active postures of the right hand and evolving at times to secondary generalization. Treatment with carbamazepine (CBZ) in combination with parenteral diazepam induced both a dramatic increase of focal reflex proprioceptive seizures and choreoathetoid dyskinesias in the affected hand. CBZ was withdrawn and clonazepam (CZP) given 2 mg daily, with complete relief of seizures and choreoathetoid dyskinesias. CZP had a suppressive effect on seizures for over 15 years, without development of tolerance.
