Summary: This case report presents an argument that a tonic-clonic
seizure, in the absence of external trauma or significant risk factors for fracture, resulted in multiple vertebral compression fractures.
The results showed important diminution and some cases cure of seizures was most significant for tonic-clonic
and tonic seizures in the first group (83% and 100%, respectively), in the means that in the second group was for tonic and tonic-clonic
(57% and 68%).
seizures were the most common type of generalized seizures accounting for 23% of all and 88% of generalized seizures.
7] During tonic-clonic
seizures, TMJ dislocation occurs when uncoordinated forces caused chiefly by the lateral pterygoid muscles, unilaterally or bilaterally, protract the articular discs and mandibular condyles out of the mandibular fossa causing both the condyles and the articular discs to crossover the articular eminence into infratemporal fossa.
0%) were generalized tonic-clonic
status epilepticus, and two (9.
6%) of generalized tonic-clonic
seizures among the epileptic patients in their study.

Myoclonic jerks reported as unilateral nocturnal generalized tonic-clonic
seizures and focal EEG abnormalities are other factors contributing to misdiagnosis.
Indicated for adjunctive therapy for partial onset seizures in adults and children; monotherapy in partial onset seizures, monotherapy for generalized seizures associated with Lennox-Gastault syndrome and tonic-clonic
seizures in generalized epilepsy
He had first experienced a tonic-clonic
seizure nine years before this admission, after he witnessed the murder of a friend.
Children who have tonic-clonic
seizures often pass out, get stiff, and then have jerking movements.
17, 18) The latency time to the onset of myoclonic, clonic, and tonic-clonic
convulsions was recorded after PTZ injection.
