Seven cases of cursive and two cases of gelastic manifestations of epileptic seizures are presented. The cases were documented with computerized tomography and electroencephalography (EEG). Most of patients with cursive seizures showed temporal lobe epileptiform discharge in EEG. The authors discuss the theme in relation to pathophysiology and conclude that they are not a homogeneous group according to prognosis and nosology. Every case presented complex partial seizures with or without tonic-clonic seizures.
