Abstract: A six-year-old Moroccan boy experienced nausea, paleness and oral automatisms after almost every shower. A clinical diagnosis of bathing epilepsy was assumed. A video-EEG recording was taken during and after a shower and confirmed ictal high voltage repetitive slow waves over the left temporal lobe. Bathing epilepsy or water immersion epilepsy is a rare form of reflex epilepsy often presenting with autonomic seizures. The onset is usually in the first year of life and the evolution is benign. [Published with video sequences].
