Özet

Postictal signs are often good indicators of seizure localization, of which language is one. Several types of dysfunction are associated with complex partial seizures, especially originated in the temporal lobe. Few similar case studies and their findings have been reported in the literature. In this light, we present two cases for the epilepsy surgery procedure in our video EEG monitoring unite who speak a foreign language in postictal period and whose epileptic focus have been observed in nondominant hemisphere.
