All three patients plugged their ears with their hands during auditory auras that localized to the superior temporal gyrus and were followed by partial seizures that spread to a wider field, as shown on scalp and intracranial VEEG. All three patients had MEG interictal discharges in the superior temporal gyrus. One patient who was nonverbal and unable to describe an auditory phenomenon plugged the ear contralateral to where temporal lobe-onset seizures and MEG interictal discharges occurred. CONCLUSIONS; Ear-plugging seizures indicate an auditory aura and may also lateralize seizure onset to the contralateral temporal lobe auditory cortex. Stereotyped behaviors accompanied by epileptic seizures in children who have poor communication skills are important in the seizure semiology of localization-related epilepsy.
