[Case records of Epileptic Disorders. Anatomo-electro-clinical correlations. Case 02-2008] We report the case of a young boy presenting with pre-frontal seizures including singing automatisms. There was no visible lesion on MRI, but following localisation using stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG), surgery revealed an underlying dysplastic lesion. [Published with video sequences]
