Özet

Objectives: Reflex seizures are proven epileptic seizures that accompany focal or generalized epilepsy syndromes and are precipitated by sensory/cognitive stimuli or motor activity. As there isn't much knowledge about reflex seizures, in daily practice at most epilepsy clinics, inquiries about reflex seizure precipitants are often not made. The aim of the present study was to determine number and type of reflex seizure precipitants identified by patients with epilepsy.
