The Comorbidities of Epilepsy offers an up-to-date, comprehensive review of all comorbidities of epilepsy (somatic, neurological and behavioral) as discussed by active international authorities in the field of clinical epileptology, emphasizing epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. This book includes a critical appraisal of methodological aspects and limitations, along with public health problems. Pharmacological issues in the management of comorbidities are also discussed, providing a comprehensive tome on a group of neurological disorders that affect about 50 million people worldwide. As health professionals are now realizing the importance of comorbidities in patients with epilepsy, this book will help improve quality of life. During the last 15 years, a number of studies have shown that some disorders are more frequently encountered among patients with epilepsy as compared to the general population. These findings have led to several hypotheses about a shared pathophysiology between epilepsy and these disorders that has stimulated research in this area and emphasized the importance of recognizing this specific group of comorbidities.
