Abstract

We report on a case of a 45-year-old man in an episode of major depressionwith psychotic features treated with bilateral electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). At the eighth treatment, he manifested unilateral, prolonged, nonconvulsive seizure activity on the left side, which lasted 351 seconds longer than seizure activity on the right, and was terminated with intravenous diazepam. This is the first report of a unilateral prolonged seizure. Its occurrence following bilateral ECT was particularly noteworthy. This case also highlights the importance of two-channel EEG recording during ECT. Without two recording channels we doubt that this event would have been detected, perhaps resulting in nonconvulsive status epilepticus.
