However, seizure patterns revealing the seizure onset zone are thought to give better localizing information, but are impractical due to the waiting time for spontaneous seizures. Therefore, provocation by seizure precipitants may be used with the precaution that spontaneous and provoked seizures may not be identical. OBJECTIVE: We present evidence that hyperventilation induced and drug induced focal seizures may arise from different brain regions in the same patient. METHODS: Hyperventilation and ultra short acting opioid remifentanil were used separately as intraoperative precipitatants of seizure patterns, while recording from subdural and intraventricular electrodes in a patient with temporal lobe epilepsy. Two different ictal onset zones appeared in response to hyperventilation and remifentanil. Both zones were resected and the patient has remained essentially seizure free for 1 year.
