    The major literature on psychosis in patients with epilepsy in Japan is reviewed.

    A well-documented case report of postictal psychosis appeared as early as 1908 ; since then, psychiatrists have been taking an active role in the field of epileptology.

    Personal observation of a large number of similar cases indicates that most paranoid psychoses in epilepsy are different from schizophrenia in terms of seizure occurrence, time course, and psychiatric symptomatology and may be classified as (a) postictal psychosis, (b) episodic psychosis. (c) chronic schizophrenialike psychosis. (d) psychosis with generalized EEG seizure discharges, and (e) a combination of epilepsy and schizophrenia.
