Epilepsy & Seizures
The term “aura continua” typically refers to long-lasting epileptic phenomena without visible motor phenomena. Clinically, aura continua can be classified into 4 types: (1) somatosensory; (2) aura continua that involve the special senses; (3) aura continua with predominantly autonomic symptoms; and (4) aura continua with psychic symptoms. Aura continua might occur de novo, but in most instances it occurs in patients with known focal epilepsies, particularly temporal lobe epilepsy.
