[Variants of Todd's paralysis: postictal apraxia and prolonged postictal hemineglect].
Nervenarzt. 1994 Oct; 65(10):700-3.N

Abstract

Todd's post-epileptic paralysis is a well-known complication after focal or generalized epileptic seizures. The underlying pathophysiology, however, is still unknown. Commonly, it is associated with a hemiparesis, usually lasting minutes or hours, rarely as long as two days, with subsequent complete remission. We report 2 patients with unusual and variant post-epileptic syndromes which have not been previously described in the literature: first, an ideomotor limb apraxia, and second, a severe hemineglect syndrome. Each syndrome lasted up to 70 hours after the seizure and was completely reversible.
