Abstract

The authors studied 52 patients who had undergone surgery because of intractable temporal lobe epilepsy. Investigation of postoperative psychiatric illnesses focused on psychotic disorder (293.81 and 293.82) and mood disorder (293.83) due to a general medical condition diagnosed according to DSM-IV criteria. Presurgically, two episodic psychotic syndromes, acute interictal and postictal psychosis, were defined operationally. A correlation was confirmed between presurgical acute interictal psychosis and postsurgical psychotic disorder, as well as between presurgical postictal psychosis and postsurgical mood disorder. An excellent final outcome for postoperative mood disorder in contrast to a less favorable one for psychotic disorder was also suggested.
