Abstract

A series of 150 patients with seizure disorders was analyzed in detail. Older individuals (over the age of 65 years) with a short duration of seizure activity at the time of computerized tomography (CT) examination (less than 6 months), associated with specific neurological findings and focal seizures secondarily generalized, produced the highest number of intracranial CT abnormalities. Relationships between CT, electroencephalography (EEG), and other diagnostic procedures and pertinent historical and neurological findings are discussed.
