We describe a patient in whom the only electrographic manifestation of a complex partial seizure recorded by video-EEG telemetry was periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) with a left anterior temporal emphasis. The abnormality, which persisted throughout the whole recorded seizure, lends support to the claim that PLEDs can be an ictal phenomenon.
