Abstract: Objective To explore the clinical features of epilepsy after stroke. Methods One thousand and eighty-two patients with stroke, admitted to our hospital from June 2002 to December 2008,were chosen. The clinical data of 68 of these patients having epilepsy after stroke were collected; the clinical characteristics, seizure types and locations were summarized; the relations between epilepsy and both the stroke types and the locations of stroke lesions were analyzed. Results In patients with secondary epilepsy, the lesion of seizure mainly located in the temporal lobe with simple partial seizure as its main seizure type; patients with epilepsy secondary to cerebral hemorrhage had a higher prevalence as compared with those secondary to cerebral infarction and subarachnoid hemorrhage (P<0.05). Patients with secondary epilepsy having their lesions in the lobes had a higher prevalence as compared with those having their lesions in other locations (P<0.05) Conclusion Stroke patients having cerebral hemorrhage and lesions in the lobes are likely to have secondary epilepsy; the lesion mainly locates in the middle of the temporal lobe; simple partial seizure is common.
