Abstract: An unusual presentation of absence seizure in a boy in the form of
"throttling sensation" has been described. He has responded well to valporate
after confirming the diagnosis by electroencephalogram. This is to emphasis the
pediatricians about the importance of referral to neurologists for appropriate
diagnosis if they encounter such atypical symptoms among their patients.
Keywords: Absence seizures, electroencephalogram, throttling sensation, spike and wave
