Abstract: The insular cortex is located deep within the Sylvian fissure, and has rich connections. We describe two patients with focal epilepsy arising from this area, with symptoms of choking and strangulation during consciousness. Clinicians should be aware of this unusual presentation and that interictal electroencephalography can be normal.
