An illustrative case of auditory aura and complex partial seizures is presented to highlight challenges in the accurate localization of the epileptogenic zone. Application and interpretation of various diagnostic tools is discussed in this case using the North American approach to the localization of the epileptogenic zone. Whenever possible, the differences and similarities between the North American and the French/Italian approach for the localization of the epileptogenic zone are discussed.
