Abstract Epileptogenic lesions affecting the supplementary motor area usually create partial seizures of the postural type, and these seizures may be associated with sensory, inhibitory, or autonomic phenomena; vocalization or speech interference; and a variety of ictal sensory experiences. Contributions leading to the present understanding of the supplementary motor area in humans and the history, findings, and care of a patient who was treated successfully by means of surgical excision of this area in her dominant hemisphere are the bases of this presentation.
