We used regression analysis to compare the semiologic features of temporal lobe seizures that occur during sleep (TLS-S) and wake (TLS-W) in the same patient. Most semiologic features correctly lateralized seizure activity during either sleep or wake. No significant differences were found between TLS-S and TLS-W in the 18 semiologic features analyzed. The diagnostic value of TLS-S semiology is similar to that of TLS-W semiology.
