{"ops":[{"insert":"A 23 year old woman presents 8 hours after a convulsion, following which she has been continuously confused.\n\nShe was camping in the wilderness along with her partner, who witnessed the episode. He saw her collapse to the ground, with jerky movements of all four limbs and frothing at the mouth. This lasted for around 2 minutes.\n\nHer medical and surgical histories are unremarkable, but her family history is significant for a sister with epilepsy. She only drinks socially, is not on any medications, and does not use recreational drugs.\n"},{"insert":"\n"},{"insert":{"image":"\/storage\/case-images\/pd\/PD-M-058_en.png"}},{"insert":"\n"}]}
