Özet

Background: Reflex epilepsy is characterized by seizures that are triggered in response to a specific stimulus and tooth-brushing epilepsy is an extremely rare form of reflex epilepsy in which the seizures are mainly induced by the act of tooth brushing. In this report, we describe an epilepsy patient whose seizures were exclusively triggered by the use of a powered toothbrush.
