Human micturition is physiologically controlled via a complex and finely tuned network of cortical and subcortical regions, hitherto not fully understood. We report the case of a 42-year-old man with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) and post-traumatic epilepsy. Ictal enuresis was the only manifestation of the de novo post-traumatic simple autonomic seizures. Source analysis of the ictal epileptiform discharges showed activation of the cortical areas surrounding the right inferior frontal sulcus, adjacent to the lesional zone. The case depicted here further endorses recent neuroimaging studies which strongly implicate this cortical region in the regulation and the initiation of the micturition.
