Abstract

Seizures during posttransplant period are not uncommon. The reported incidence after transplantation ranges from 5 to 25%. There are currently no specific guidelines in selection of antiepileptic drug (AED) therapy in transplant recipients. In post liver transplant patients, AEDs without substantial hepatic metabolism should be chosen as first line.
