Abstract

The authors report a case of epilepsy presented as infantile masturbation. The patient was a 3-year-old girl with paroxysmal attacks of masturbation mimicking seizures. Her physical examination was completely normal, with no other neurological problems, although her EEG showed abnormal changes. By administration of anticonvulsant, the number of attacks reduced primarily and with the increment of the dose, subsided totally.
