Seizures are a little-recognized component of the syndrome of autonomic dysreflexia. Three patients who exhibited seizures during episodes of dysreflexia independent of intracerebral pathology are described. The presence of seizures in patients with traumatic myelopathy T-6 should alert the physician to a possible dysreflexic episode, and measures should be taken to avert such an episode.
