Abstract


On the basis of study of dependence between the personal traits of patients with epilepsy with duration of diasease over 5 years and range of factors (etiology and duration of disease, age and sex of patients, treatment efficacy) we determined the features of psychological pathomorphosis of epilepsy. Positive (referring to health) therapeutic psychological pathomorphosis was noted in patients with full seizure control. Negative mixed (exo- and endogenous) long-term psychological pathomorphosis was observed in patients with prolonged course of disease, in age group over 45 years, in males, as well as in true and pseudoresistance to treatment.
