RESUMO

Neste estudo analisamos a relação entre a resposta fotoparoxística e: os diferentes tipos de epilepsia, história familiar para epilepsia, sexo, duração das epilepsias, freqüência de crises epilépticas.


SUMMARY

A retrospective study was performed on 34 patients with photosensitivity detected on the electroencephalogram. This group was compared to an aleatory sample, with 218 patients. The objectives were to evaluate the photosensitivity and: type of epilepsy, age of onset of seizures, sex ratio, frequency of seizures, and family history.
