Epilepsy has varied presentations leading to confusion in diagnosis . Atypical features like episodic hallucinations, rage attacks, secondary enuresis, and episodic nervousness with sensory, autonomic, and motor symptoms are already present in the literature . The limited understanding regarding clinical presentation leads to epilepsy having a huge burden of disease. This case demonstrates the identification of seizure disorder on basis of detailed history and electroencephalogram findings, despite having an atypical presentation and normal neurological examination.
