Core Tip The brain and the gut have an intense but complex interaction through a strong relationship between the enteric and the central nervous systems. Epilepsy and the gut may affect each other in diverse ways. At the same time, about 2.5% of patients with epilepsy are misdiagnosed as gastrointestinal disorders, especially at an early age. Gut dysbiosis also has a significant role in epileptogenesis. Epilepsy, in turn, affects the gastrointestinal tract in different forms, such as abdominal aura, epilepsy with abdominal pain, and the adverse effects of antiseizure medications on the gut and the gut microbiota. At the same time, many gut manipulations successfully managed some cases of epilepsy.
