Taking tegretol for seizure disorder. CT scan showing inflammatory granuloma. What is it?

I am praveen from India, I have a seizure disorder right back 10 years ago, after that doctors advised me to take tegretol 100 for 3 years, I had completed my course and had no compalints for 10 years.

But before 2 days I had similar seizure disorder and agin got admitted in hospital, after treating one day they have discharged me and advised to take EPTOIN.

Now i want to ask that what to do, to completely cure this disease. I am computer researcher and have to travel a lot alone, if that happened while i am alone then i will be in huge trouble. My CT SCAN shows it's Inflamatory gramuloma and all the rest is normal.

Please advise

Welcome to HCM

Mostly in cases of seizure disorder there is no definitive cause can be found. You took treatment form 10 years and remained seizure free for that period then suddenly you again had two episodes. This can happen even with drugs also. You CT is showing inflammatory granuloma. It may be due to granulomatous lesion caused by Neurocysticercosis or may be chronically healed Tubercular granuloma. This may be a cause of seizures. Eptoin is right drug for control of seizures but I would advise you to get yourself checked by a Neurologist. There may be additional need for some medicine for granuloma.
