Interleukin 17A (IL-17A) is implicated in the pathogenesis of several neuroimmunologic diseases. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between IL-17A and seizure severity in patients with epilepsy.

Interictal serum IL-17A and related cytokine (IL-23, IL-6, IL-1β, interferon gamma (IFN-γ), and IL-10) levels were measured.
