The cingulate gyrus is located above the corpus callosum and forms part of the limbic system. Cingulate gyrus epilepsy poses a diagnostic challenge, given its diverse and variable seizure semiology. We present two patients with seizures arising in the cingulate gyrus that highlight the electroclinical and imaging features of this rare form of epilepsy. Cingulate seizures can give a wide range of clinical manifestations, which relate to the underlying neuroanatomy and subdivisions of the cingulate cortex. Here, we review the semiology of cingulate epilepsy and how this relates to the location of seizure onset and patterns of propagation.
