Overview

Epilepsy affects 40 million people worldwide. With appropriate treatment most can become seizure free. For a minority of patients who also suffer from psychiatric comorbidity, however, diagnosis and management may be complicated by uncontrolled seizures, associated stigma or by the treatment of the epilepsy itself.

Written by the world's foremost authorities on the neuropsychiatric manifestations of epilepsy, Psychiatric Comorbidity in Epilepsy is a comprehensive clinical, research, and treatment text for health care professionals -- including psychiatrists, neurologists, and neuropsychologists -- who treat patients with epilepsy and comorbid psychiatric problems. Based on a thorough knowledge of contemporary neuroscience, this book addresses the critical psychosocial and psychiatric issues that can affect patient care, including depression, psychosis, nonepileptic seizure-like events, antiepileptic drug toxicity, and family issues. This book also examines the possible links between the neurobiology of neuropsychiatric illness and the neurobiology of seizures, providing insight into brain behavior relations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an excellent new book covering the psychiatric aspects of epilepsy. Based on a conference held in 1994 and expanded into a textbook, it is a comprehensive review of this fascinating area. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field, this book is a valuable contribution to psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose is to improve clinicians' understanding and clinical management of the psychiatric aspects of epileptic disorders. The editors believe that it is important to recognize the many ways that epilepsy may affect the individual and its potential psychiatric and psychosocial consequences. This book provides a step towards that purpose.
Audience: The intended audience, according to the editors, is psychiatrists and neurologists who care for patients with epilepsy.
Features: Topics covered include an historical perspective, neural mechanisms, diagnosis, the neuropsychological examination, sleep and seizures, mood disorders, psychoses, diagnosis and treatment of nonepileptic seizures, behavioral effects of antiepileptic drugs, treatment of psychiatric comorbidity, family systems theory, and a chapter on living with epilepsy. There is an up-to-date reference section at the end of each chapter and useful index at the back of the book.
Assessment: This is a valuable and comprehensive new book on the psychiatric aspects of epilepsy. Any clinician who is involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with epilepsy should read and refer to this book.
Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences

Overall, this a valuable book that I now frequently refer to and would recommend to neurologists and psychiatrists with an interest in the neuropsychiatry of epilepsy.

Originally based on a May 1994 conference, the text has been expanded to give a broader view of the role of psychiatry within the field of epileptology. Twelve chapters address the critical psychosocial and psychiatric issues that can affect patient care, including depression, psychosis, nonepileptic seizure-like events, antiepileptic drug toxicity, and family issues. They also examine possible links between the neurobiology of neuropsychiatric illness and of seizures, thus providing insight into brain-behavior relationships. Chapters on family systems therapy and living with epilepsy conclude the work. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
