Epilepsy and Psychosis - Ask the Family

  • David J. Clarke (a1), Mary E. Buckley (a1) and Bruce H. Burns

Abstract

Psychotic episodes and epilepsy can occur without mental retardation in tuberous sclerosis. The diagnosis may depend on elucidating the family history since physical signs may not be obvious. Establishing the diagnosis makes genetic counselling possible.
