Abstract

Objective: Since some case reports about the ototoxicity of valproic acid have been published, probable adverse effects of valproic acid on hearing in the epileptic patients became a subject of interest. We wanted to investigate if ototoxicity occurs in pediatric epileptic patients using VPA for long terms.
