A seizure characterized by the presence of stereotyped crying, this may be accompanied by lacrimation, sad facial expression, and sobbing. The subjective emotion of sadness may or may not be present. These seizures often accompany focal emotional seizures with laughing in the setting of a hypothalamic hamartoma. They can also occur in seizures arising in frontal or temporal lobes. Crying is a rare feature of an epileptic seizure, and is more commonly a feature of a non-epileptic seizure.
