Abstract:

Seizure-induced psychiatric disorders have gained increasing attention, highlighting the bidirectional relationship between neurological and psychological conditions. Studies worldwide have reported that the prevalence of depression in individuals with epilepsy can range from approximately 20% to 60%. However, the coexistence of seizure-induced conditions, such as depressive disorder, and borderline personality traits remains a relatively underexplored area of study. Borderline personality traits encompass a range of emotional dysregulation, unstable interpersonal relationships, and impulsivity, which may interact with neurological events to influence symptomatology and treatment outcomes.
We present a case report of a young, unmarried female, who experienced a seizure-induced depressive disorder following a head injury and exhibited borderline personality traits. This case sheds light on the complex interplay between physical trauma, psychiatric symptoms, and personality traits.
