Abstract

Despite studies on traumatic damages to skull, the incidences of post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) are unknown, and there is still controversy about medicine therapy and seizure control of these patients. In our study we compared medicine therapy in idiopathic epilepsy and war induced PTE. The test group was consisted of 50 war-disabled persons, and the control group consisted of 50 adult men who had idiopathic epilepsy. Our questionnaires were analyzed by statistical methods. Occupation rate in control group was 60% and in test group was 44%. In 94% of the control group and in 80% of the test group, medicine therapy was started with a single drug. Convulsion occurred by drug dosage decreasing in 36.4% of the control and in 60% of the test group and by stopping the drug it occurred in 50% of the control. We conclude that drug monitoring in test group in Chaharmahal province is relatively acceptable. It is possible that lower rate of epileptic attacks in test group is due to more attention of physicians to them. It is necessary to pay more attention for their occupations to help their rehabilitation.
