Lucy suffered two grand mal seizures last Thursday for no apparent reason. Since then she has become more aggressive and lethargic at the same time. She is here on the Neurology and Neurosurgery Service for an MRI evaluation of the head and neck. The images may or may not show a cause for the seizures but are only part of a complete examination and diagnostic work-up.
