Various kinds of physical and cognitive acts and different sensory inputs to the brain have been described to induce reflex epilepsy. Usually simple sensory stimuli or motor acts precipitate epilepsy. Rarely, however more specific sensory stimuli orcomplex motor or cognitive acts have been known to do so. We report a case of reflex epilepsy following the act of micturition. In this patient, generalised tonic-clonic seizures have occurred independently as well as after the initiation of act of micturition. The CT scan and EEG were suggestive of right frontal lobe focus, a finding extremely rare to have association with reflex epilepsy of any known nature. The possible mechanisms of reflex stimulation have been discussed.
