Abstract:

<p>This video-illustrated case report concerns a 49-year-old woman who presented with sleep-related hypermotor seizures. The antecedent history of leptospirosis, high frequency of new-onset seizures, presence of an unclassified anti-neuronal antibody, and dramatic response to steroids strongly supported post-infectious immune-mediated pathogenesis in our patient. To the best of our knowledge, post-leptospirosis autoimmune epilepsy presenting as sleep-related hypermotor seizures has not hitherto been reported.
