Several focal seizures and one generalized seizure, and progressive clumsiness of the left extremities with a tremor of the left hand have been presented recently, despite treatment with anticonvulsant.

On admission, slight left hemiparesis and intentional tremor of the left hand was observed without any signs of increased intracranial pressure.
