Defecation induced epilepsy is a very rare form of reflex epilepsy, which has not been reported yet in Korea. We experienced a case of defecation-induced epilepsy in a 10 month old boy who has been showing seizure with every defecation since 5 months of his age. Diagnosis was made by clinical history and appearance of clinical seizure with epileptiform activities in electroencephalography after glycerine enema during recording.
Key Words: Defecation-induced epilepsy
