Mise en oeuvre d’une étude épidémiologique au sein d’une population de militaires d’active hospitalisés pour une première crise d’épilepsie dans le service de neurologie de l’hôpital d’instruction des Armées du Val de Grâce

Abstract : Introduction: epilepsy is a common and universal condition. In the exercise of their profession, soldiers are particularly exposed to epileptogenic factors such as stress or sleeping debt. The main objective of this study is to compare epidemiological characteristics of in-patient military hospitalized for first epileptic seizure by distinguishing three groups: patients receiving anti epileptic treatment from the start during hospitalization, patients treated at a distance after recurrence and those free from any treatment. Materials and methods: a descriptive and analytical observational monocentric epidemiological study was carried out from January 1, 2008 to October 1, 2015, within the HIA neurology department Val de Grâce. The data was collected through the Medical Information Department cell (DIM) of the hospital. Results: 88 patients were included in this study. The recurrences of comitial seizures concentrated over a short period or the discovery during the history of a concealed epileptic antecedent led to the introduction of a drug therapy in the first two groups. A normal electroencephalogram increases the probabilities of therapeutic abstention. The consequences of these crises in terms of military medical inaptitude pronounced are considerable for the patients and their career development. Conclusion: military could constitute a population at risk of epileptogenesis. The discovery of the disease causes significant limitations in their professional activities.
