  Hormonal Disorders in Patients with Epilepsy  
  Authors: Haseitel M, Silva E  
     
  Epilepsy is one of the most common chronic neurological diseases with multifactorial etiology (congenital, trauma, central nervous system infection, etc.). There are several multidirectional interactions between hormonal axes, seizures and the use of medication to control this disease. For example, alterations in endogenous or exogenous hormonal levels can directly affect neuronal excitability as well as susceptibility to crises or indirectly through changes in the concentrations of antiepileptic drugs and, conversely, structural and physiological abnormalities of the brain affected by epilepsy or medication can affect the different hypothalamic-pituitary axes.
