Abstract

There is accumulating evidence of a mutual relationship between multiple sclerosis and structural epilepsy. Comorbidity of these severe neurological disorders is reported in numerous recent publications in the available foreign literature. Modern diagnostic tools include comprehensive neurological examinations as well as computed tomography, electroencephalography and 18FFDG positron emission tomography. In this paper we report the case of a female patient with multiple sclerosis and structural epilepsy.
