What are the tests for epilepsia partialis continua?
1 doctor weighed in

In brief: 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.
