Seizures and antiepileptic drug use in transplant patients.

Author information

  • 1Department of Neurology, University of Kentucky Medical Center, Lexington.


Seizures may occur as an isolated manifestation of an acute encephalopathy or, less frequently, recur as a manifestation of epilepsy in transplant patients. Determining which of these is the case will lead to appropriate treatment. The selection of the antiepileptic drug (AED) will depend on the patient's type of seizure, general medical condition, and transplant type and also depend on the consideration of potential adverse effects of individual AEDs.
