Abstract

Objective: Neuronal auto-antibodies (NAA) have recently been shown in some patients with chronic temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Psychiatric comorbidity is a significant part of the TLE course and a different profile can be a marker for "autoimmune" epilepsy. For this reason, we aimed to determine the psychiatric profiles of TLE patients associated with NAA and their differentiating features.
