Book description

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions, affecting up to seventy million people worldwide, with post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) accounting for up to 20% of symptomatic cases. Despite this, there is a dearth of information about PTE available for clinicians. This book will guide readers through the neurobiology of PTE and the long-term consequences and rehabilitation needs of patients. Emerging topics such as concussive convulsions in sports are examined and a chapter dedicated to PTE in children ensures readers have the latest knowledge for treating this high-risk subpopulation. Managing PTE in medium and low-income countries where access to appropriate treatment, and even diagnostic equipment, is often poor, is covered in depth. This book is an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of PTE by active international authorities in the field of epilepsy and traumatic brain injury, with an emphasis on epidemiology, neurobiology, clinical problems as well as management issues.


‘The layout of the book is good … an up-to-date summary on an important topic with a still acceptable price.’
