Abstract

Fifty-five cases of epileptic seizures associated with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage are reported. Seizures appeared as the first symptom in 23 patients, early (within two weeks after HI) in 18 and late (later than 2 weeks after HI) in 14. From the analysis of the observed cases we noticed that: 1) partial seizures were most frequent type (63%). These appeared mainly in cases with lobar hemorrhage above all; 2) development chronic epilepsy occurred frequently in the case of patients affected by late seizures. We compare our data with those reported in literature in order to highlight main factors which affect the onset and development of seizures associated with spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage.
