Resumen

BENITEZ GORT, Nadieska; VELAZQUEZ ARGOTA, Juana  y  CASTRO PERAZA, Marta. Psychiatric co-morbidity and epilepsy in children and adolescents with mental disability. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.3. ISSN 0864-2125.

Epilepsy is a medical condition of high representation in the infantile-youthful population at world level and if we characterize it in mentally retarded persons, it is possible to find very high figures in this type of population. Thus, it is usual the interest to study if it influence somehow in the behavior of psychiatric co-morbidity in children and adolescents presenting with cognitive inability. If to this paragraph we added the influence of genetic syndromes and of the parental psychopathology in the behavior of above mentioned co-morbidity in these children and adolescents, we will be achieving a very complete and updated compendium on the influence of significant biological factors in this particular condition. The objective of present review is to study in depth the knowledge of this paragraph and update it according the more recent and advanced studies on this subject. Here, we will found the researchers consensus in the criteria of the direct influence of these factors in the great presence of psychiatric co-morbidities in cognitive incapacited persons, as well as its major features favoring this behavior.

Palabras clave : Epilepsy; genetic syndromes; parental psychopathology; infantile-youthful psychiatric co-morbidity; cognitive inability; association.
