Growth hormone and prolactin in temporal lobe epilepsy.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University, Montreal, PQ, Canada.


Growth hormone and prolactin levels were measured sequentially during wakefulness and sleep, in seven patients with unilateral temporal lobe epilepsy who underwent telemetric EEG monitoring (10-24 h), and in three additional patients studied while temporal structures were stimulated with implanted electrodes during pre-surgical evaluation. The results indicated that growth hormone/prolactin release patterns were not significantly affected by selective unilateral stimulation of deep temporal structures, or, when sleep patterns were normal, by epileptic activity confined to one temporal lobe.
