Abstract

We report the case of a 70-year-old man with pancytopaenia and new-onset recurrent generalised seizures. Detailed evaluation yielded a diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. He was treated with parenteral vitamin B12 supplementation and antiepileptic drugs. Seizures are an unusual manifestation of vitamin B12 deficiency and possible mechanisms of epileptogenesis are discussed.
