The leading etiologies of deafness and of epilepsy are similar resulting in significantly more epilepsy in the deaf population. This study of 50 deaf epileptics reveals more males than females, a high rate of multiple disabilities, and a lower mean I.Q. The major finding was that 36 percent of the sample had serious problems with violent behavior.
