Abstract: 

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most common behavioral disorder in children (1). Prevailing theories suggest that this disease is caused by the disruption of dopamine transmission in the frontal lobe and frontostriatal pathway (2). The prevalence of such a disorder worldwide is approximately 5.2-12% (1)(2). ADHD is one of the most common disorders followed by epilepsy that affects the quality of the patients’ life and is an important risk factor of academic achievement (3). Many recent studies imply that there is a complex and bidirectional relationship between ADHD and epilepsy (3)(4)(5).
