There was no significant difference in BDI, LSAS and CSEI scores between male and female patients (p > 0.
The relationship of the presence of generalized tonic-clonic seizures with BDI, LSAS and CSEI scores were assessed and no statistically significant relationship was found (p > 0.
We did not find any significant relationsip between the variables in the patient group such as age, duration of the disease, frequency of seizures, and types of seizures and BDI, LSAS and CSEI scores (Table 5).
The major finding in our study was the statistically significant difference in the total BDI, LSAS and CSEI scores between the patients and the healthy controls.
To our knowledge, this is the first clinical study used LSAS in patients with epilepsy.
We also assessed the relationship of variables such as age, the duration of the disease, frequency of seizures, and types of seizures with BDI, LSAS and CSEI scores in the patient group, however, we did not find a significant relationship (Table 5).
