She was a known treated case of tuberculoma of the brain who was not on any antiepileptics, and had been seizure free for the past two years. She developed two episodes of seizures precipitated during pregnancy termination with misoprostol. She received intravenous diazepam and phenytoin and was safely discharged home after she aborted.
