Her last episode of seizure was on the day of admission with loss of consciousness, generalized tonic colonic movement of limbs, upward gaze, jaw locking and urinary incontinency similar to previous episodes. She was the second child of a family that has 3 normal children and their first child expired because of prematurity.
