    This paper presents a case study of a seizure-induced transient dyslexic episode experienced by a radio presenter while reading a script live on air. An analysis of the recording of the episode in conjunction with the script being read yields a number of interesting observations. There is, for example, a distinct temporal pattern of breakdown from what can be characterized as orthographic errors through to semantic confusions. Many of the orthographic errors can be explained as a form of repetition blindness. Furthermore, the pattern of lexical error lends support to a two-stage model lexicalization.
