Abstract

Clinical histories of two patients now aged 16 with temporal lobe epilepsy and later schizophrenia are examined. Seizure disorder began in childhood; seizures control was achieved only in polytherapy. After 13 years of age, EEGs no longer showed abnormalities during wakefulness or sleep. Antiepileptic drugs were tapered. Seizures no longer occured. At age 14 patients developed schizophrenia. This peculiar chronological evolution of the illness is discussed.
