Epilepsy & Seizures
Posttraumatic seizures may occur almost simultaneously with head injury or be delayed for several years. Posttraumatic epilepsy appears in many cases as temporal lobe epilepsy that possibly originates from the hippocampus. Once posttraumatic epilepsy has developed, it remits less often than previously reported. Patients with posttraumatic epilepsy appear to have a higher mortality rate than patients with traumatic brain injury without epilepsy.
