Sudden death in an epileptic patient without any apparent cause is not common and becomes a dilemma for a forensic pathologist in arriving at the cause of death. It becomes even more complicated when death occurs in an apparently healthy young individual with absence of gross or microscopic changes at autopsy. Herein, we present a case of a young male who was brought dead after a sudden collapse at home and in whom the cause of death could be ascertained only after a detailed enquiry into the past history of the deceased.
