Monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) is a routine procedure after severe head injuries. In non-surgical lesions, uncontrolled intracranial hypertension gives a very poor prognosis. The relations between the ICP’s high level and épileptic seizures, though not very often reported in severe head injuries, seem interesting from a practical therapeutic point of view.
