Juul-Jensen's present address is Jaegerstien, Skaade bakker pr. Hoejbjerg, Denmark. Later, Omorokow, 2 in a series of 52 patients with EPC, came to the same conclusion on the basis of numerous biopsies of the cortex.
However, subsequent reports have not borne out the Russian opinion that EPC is referable to encephalitis; the syndrome has been reported to be caused by many different factors, and the cortical and subcortical origin of the seizures is still a subject of discussion.
The definition of EPC is not exactly the same in the various papers. By EPC we mean clonic muscular twitching repeated at fairly regular short intervals in one part of the body for a period of days or weeks. Each twitch is an abrupt jerk lasting. Arch Neurol.

Epilepsia partialis continua
This article includes discussion of epilepsia partialis continua of Kozhevnikov, epilepsia partialis continua Bancaud type I, focal motor epilepsia partialis continua, focal motor status epilepticus, Kozhevnikov syndrome type 1, and partial motor status epilepticus. The foregoing terms may include synonyms, similar disorders, variations in usage, and abbreviations. Epilepsia partialis continua is a rare form of simple focal motor status epilepticus of mainly cerebral cortical origin. It manifests with repetitive, regular, or irregular localized clonic muscle twitching, lasting for a few milliseconds and repeated at least every 10 seconds for hours, days, or months without impairment of consciousness. Onset occurs at any age, but starts before 16 years of age in a third of cases. Both sexes are equally affected.
