Lafora body disease (LBD) is a form of progressive myoclonic epilepsy, characterized by seizures, myoclonic jerks, cognitive decline, ataxia, and intracellular polyglucosan inclusion bodies (Lafora bodies) in the neurons, heart, skeletal muscle, liver, and sweat gland duct cells. Electroencephalogram (EEG) findings in LBD may include multiple spikes and wave discharges, photosensitivity, multifocal epileptiform discharges, and progressive slowing in background activity. Periodicity in epileptiform discharges has not been frequently depicted in LBD. We herein report an unusual case of LBD who showed generalized periodic epileptiform discharges in EEG.
