Abstract

The etiopathogenesis of autistic disorder (AD) seems to be related to a neurobiological multifactoriality; epilepsy is frequently reported. We describe 16 patients with AD and macrocephaly without congenital or acquired encephalopathy; 6 of them (37.5%) had epilepsy. The association between AD, macrocephaly and epilepsy is particular and in literature there are not many data: therefore this argument deserves further studies.
