Late-Onset Epilepsy LOE, with onset in adult life, is often attributed to cerebrovascular disease and intracranial tumor. Herein we present a LOE patient with history of Linear Scleroderma en Coup de Sabre LScs and abnormal cranial MRI signs. Curiously, his band-like skin lesion, presenting on the forehead, was in line with the surface projection of the intracranial focus shown in MRI. This gave a clue of the link between the skin lesion and the intracranial focus and the epilepsy. To sum up, it exposed a rare cause of LOE. Moreover, it underlined the significance of recognizing the cause to be associated with a substantially increased risk of developing epilepsy.
