An analysis of the mechanism of epilepsy and epileptogenesis after traumatic brain injury will give us an insight into neural circuitry. In a retrospective analysis of 48 cases of moderate and severe traumatic brain injury, who reported for follow up to our centre over a period of two years. Of these, 12 patients with post traumatic epilepsy were identified. The risk factors, EEG patterns and the quality of control were analyzed. The pathophysiology and paradigms of management have been discussed.
