Epilepsia Partialis Continua. A form of epilepsy in which there is repetitive motor seizures (jerking, twitching) involving one small area or all of one side of the body. Consciousness is maintained. Treatment with anti-epileptic drugs is often not very effective; surgical treatment should be considered. These seizures can also be associated with Rasmussen’s Encephalitis.
