Chronic focal seizure disorder as a manifestation of intracranial iophendylate

Epilepsia. May-Jun 1988;29(3):294-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1528-1157.1988.tb03721.x.

Abstract

A 46-year-old woman developed focal seizures 10-15 years following iophendylate myelography. Focal epileptogenic abnormalities on electroencephalogram corresponded to the localization of residual iophendylate in the right sylvian fissure. Intracranial iophendylate may have produced chronic meningeal reaction leading to cortical irritation and a chronic seizure disorder.
