Abstract

We herein report 4 Japanese children who suffered epileptic seizures while watching a popular animated TV program. They showed a photoparoxysmal response that is more frequently observed in response to rapid color (blue/red) frame changes than monochromatic ones. These patients were all considered to have photosensitive epilepsy; however, chromatic sensitivity also plays an important role in the generation of such seizures.
