    The platelet monoamine oxidase activity (MAO) of 33 patients with epilepsy was compared with a group of neurological patients and a group of normal control subjects. We found that the MAO activity was increased significantly in the epileptic group when compared with the normal. This was not related to anticonvulsant medication. These results could be explained by the effect of epilepsy or anticonvulsant medication on the maturation of platelets.
