Epileptic nystagmus is defined as a rapid repetitive jerky movement of one or both eyes associated with rhythmic eye oscillations that occur only during epileptic seizures. It is a rare epilepsy form, more frequently seen in the pediatric age group, and mostly associated with other oculomotor symptoms. We present an unusual case of epileptic nystagmus in a young male patient who showed a prominent response to low-dose antiepileptic drugs.
