The authors report on the successful management of a 6-year-old male with intractable epilepsy using intravenous lidocaine and lidocaine tapes. At 4 years of age, he developed psychomotor deterioration and intractable epilepsy associated with leukoencephalopathy secondary to the treatment of central nervous system leukemia. His seizures were refractory to conventional antiepileptic drugs. The adjunct treatment with intravenous lidocaine and lidocaine tapes proved effective in controlling the intractable seizures. Mental state and motor activity subsequently began to improve after the reduction of the seizures.
