Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlations among sex hormones (FSH, LH, estradiol and progesterone), seizures and paroxysmal activity during 2 consecutive menstrual cycles in a female patient with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy and catamenial seizures. Both cycles were regular and ovulatory, and 86% of seizures occurred in the perimenstrual period. The secretion of FSH during the whole studied period (52 days) was significantly correlared with the amount of paroxysmal activity. The possible role of FSH on seizure threshold is discussed.
