Özet

It is known that valproic acid changes the ammonia metabolism. It has been suggested that blood ammonia levels do not correlate with valproate-induced encephalopathy.(1,2) In addition, the hyperammonemia together with encephalopathy was reported both with hepatic dysfunction and without it.(3-5).
