Abstract

Episodes of rage and anger with violent outbursts are common manifestations of various psychiatric and behavioral disorders. Though rare, it can be a manifestation of fronto-temporal lobe epilepsy which is often misdiagnosed. Here we present a case of 20 years male having intermittent episodes of anger and violent outburst for three years who was later diagnosed as a case of fronto-temporal lobe epilepsy.
