Abstract

We report two patients with no history of psychosis or epilepsy presenting with acute psychosis and epileptic seizures as the initial symptom of late- onset epilepsy. Seizures and psychosis resolved with phenytoin. Case 1 presented a recurrence of both psychosis and seizures following abrupt withdrawal of antiepileptic drugs.
