Water immersion epilepsy or bathing epilepsy is a rare form of reflex epilepsy. We report a 4-year-old child with water immersion epilepsy who manifested with an unusual presentation in the form of acute onset right hemiparesis triggered by sudden splashing of water on his face. The case is an attempt to sensitize clinicians about this entity. It also highlights the role of meticulous history-taking, examination, relevant investigations and management plan in such scenarios. Keywords : water immersion seizure, bathing epilepsy, water immersion epilepsy, reflex epilepsy
