We report a patient in whom the principal clinical correlate of left posterior temporal-occipital partial status epilepticus was a reversible disconnection syndrome, expressed as the inability to name objects and their colors when presented in the peripheral, but not the central, visual fields. Bilateral, localized band heterotopias were the underlying pathology. Resolution of seizures resulted in clinical improvement.
