Abstract

Prolonged Todd Paralysis: A Rare Case of Postictal Motor Phenomenon

Todd paralysis (TP) is a relatively rare postictal phenomenon characteristic with weakness of the limbs in various degrees, following epileptic seizures. Since it is a reversible phenomenon in general, the reported duration of TP varies between half-an-hour to 36 hours. However, there is limited data in the literature about TP which persists more than 36 hours. On this aspect, we presented this rare patient with epilepsy who was suffering from prolonged TP persisting since 1 month without any evidence of acute cerebrovascular or structural lesions.
