  • Descrizione: The paper is the second part of a survey report about the social implications of epilepsy in Senegal. The study has been conducted by a team of four (2 nurses, 1 social worker and a resident of psychiatric hospital), visiting patients in remote countryside. At the occasion of these visits, enquiries were made among patients and their families, elders, notables, in order to draw a scheme of common perception of epilepsy, which is considered most frequently as a religious or magic mental affection.
