Abstract
Reflex epilepsy IS a condition m which setzures can be provoked habitually by exctusively external stimulus or, less commonly, internal mental processes. It may coexist with spontaneously occurring seizures. Reflex seizures are epileptic rather than psychogenic in nature, presenting
often as either focal-onset or primary generalized seizures, with epileptiform EEG changes. Bathing epilepsy or as commonly named hot water epilepsy (HWE), is a form of reflex or sensory epilepsy in which seizures are precipitated by the contact of hot or tepid water over the head and body. We report a case of an 18-month-old Sudanese toddler boy, presented with recurrent abnormal funny turns, noticed by his parents, since he was 6- month old. These events occur while having a bath by pouring tap water over his head. The diagnosis of epilepsy was supported by interictal electroencephalography (EEG). This rare type of epilepsy has a geographical distribution. To our knowledge, this might be the first case report from African and Arab Nations.

Key words: Benign reflex epilepsy, boy, hot/warm water epilepsy, ictal/ interictal EEG, physiopathology, Sudanese toddler, water-immersion epilepsy
