Abstract

We read with interest the recent article by Iranzo-Tatay et al. on the subject of psychiatric symptoms after temporal lobe epilepsy surgery [ 1 ]. The article assesses the mental health of patients with the use of psychopathological evaluations using previously validated scales, presurgery, and 6- and 12-month postsurgery. It concluded that the only significant risk factor for poor mental health outcomes was a presurgical history of mental health issues. These reasonable conclusions produce a number of clinical questions and implications regarding patient care.
