Abstract

We present a case of a 45 year-old woman with epilepsy diagnosed 24 years earlier. Epilepsy was confirmed by EEG and many seizures episodes were treated with different combination of anticonvulsive drugs. A 24-h Holter ECG monitoring revealed an episode of asystole lasting 82 s. The pacemaker was implanted and antiepileptic therapy with valproic acid chrono (1800 mg/d.) was continued. We review in this article present data on arrhythmic epilepsy.
