Abstract

A patient, suffering from an oat-cell bronchial carcinoma, presented with complex partial seizures, complete loss of recent memory, mild disorientation and confabulation. There was no complaint of anxiety. The rest of the neurological examination and four computed tomographic scans of the head were normal. Repeated EEG recordings were abnormal. Antiepileptic and antipsychotic treatment led to full remission within 10 days. Post-mortem examination of the brain revealed no pathological changes.
