- Frontal lobe seizures are a common form of epilepsy, a neurological disorder in which clumps of brain cells send abnormal signals and cause seizures. These types of seizures occur in the front of the brain.
Abnormal brain tissue, infections, injuries, strokes, tumors, or other diseases can also lead to frontal lobe seizures.
Because the frontal lobe is large and has important functions, frontal lobe seizures can cause unusual symptoms that appear to be related to psychiatric problems or a sleep disorder. They often appear during sleep.
Frontal praise spells often last less than 30 seconds. In some cases, the restore is immediate.
- Signs and symptoms of frontal lobe seizures can include:
- Movement of the head and eyes to the side
Complete or partial insensitivity or difficulty speaking
Explosive screams, including profanity or laughter
Abnormal posture, e.g. B. One arm extends while the other bends, as if the person is posing as a fencer
Repetitive movements such as rocking, kicking a bike, or pelvic thrust
- Frontal lobe seizures or frontal lobe epilepsy can be caused by abnormalities such as tumors, stroke, infection, or traumatic injury in the frontal lobes of the brain.
- Frontal lobe seizures are also linked to a rare hereditary disorder known as autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy. If either parent has this form of epilepsy, you have a 50% chance of inheriting the abnormal gene that causes the disorder and developing the disease on your own.
For about half of people with frontal lobe epilepsy, the cause is unknown.
