One hundred random cases of epileptic patients visiting the epilepsy clinic of Ibn-Nafees (Central) Hospital, Tripoli, are surveyed. 82 patients were diagnosed as suffering from grand mal, 9 from petit mal, 7 from partial seizures and 2 from temporal seizures. The ratio of male to female patients was more than fourfold. With the exception of petit mal, a higher proportion of males in their early age suffered from the disease. The importance of EEG recording and CAT scanning in confirming the clinical diagnosis as an indicator of etiology and a guide to therapy, is emphasized. Six types of drugs were prescribed, singly or in combination, after through investigation. The frequency of their prescription was subject to their toxicity.
