Olfactory sulcus meningioma was incidentally discovered in young man after experiencing a grand mal seizure (generalized tonic-clonic seizures). Soon after admission to the emergency department, the patient experienced a second attack during which he sustained a humeral head fracture with scapulohumeral luxation. This event generated a series of problems concerning inpatient safety and surveillance. The patient subsequently filed a claim of negligence against the medical staff. The medical staff counterclaimed that the traumatic bone lesions were the sequelae of the epileptic attacks.
