Abstract

A case is reported of a patient unsuccessfullytreated for "typical" schizophrenia inseveral centers. He had a poor tolerance for narcolepticsand in the course of their administrationexacerbation of his symptoms was noted. Eventhough no abnormalities were found in his first eegexamination, an analysis of circumstances in whichhis episodes had occurred has, lead to a hypothesisabout temporal epilepsy. This was confirmed bothby the second eeg examination, and by the effectivenessof appropriate treatment.
