Results : The prevalence of psychiatric disorders in patients was 38.8%. In order, the highest frequency belonged to obsessive compulsive, depression and interpersonal sensitivity 46.5%.
Conclusion : Mental disorders are present in a high percentage of epileptic patients, which shows the need for psychological evaluation.
