We do agree with the statement of Dr Saka and Dr Saygi quoting the excellent papers of Saka ed and of Lancmand ed al and Chopia ed al. We would like to point out that the aim of our short article was to present a videographically and electroencephalographically well documented case of rotatory seizures and not an exhaustive literature review. Even though Saka ed al are describing 12 patients with rotatory seizure we persist in stating that rotatory seizures are a rare epileptic manifestation on the basis of literature. On the other hand we do agree with the two authors that rotatory seizures have different aetiologies and are associated with different types of epileptic seizures which is actually mentioned in our paper.
