EEG and imaging: Epilepsia partialis continua (epc) is frequently seen in patients with an anatomical/pathological abnormality at or near the gray-white junction in the brain. An eeg would confirm the clinical diagnosis but MRI (preferably) would be needed to localize the lesion. Treatment of this type of epilepsy is difficult, frequently requiring multiple medications.

Abort the seizures: Typically these are intermittent partial focal seizures during recovery from status epilepticus, but such activity can occur with brain infections and even diffuse brain problems from toxins, poisons, and medication withdrawal. Intravenous anti-epileptic drugs are provided within a hospital setting, and treatment should be aggressive, as there is potential mortality if left alone.
