A February ARCHIVES review by Silverman et al1 addressed stroke-related seizures and epilepsy. We too have been interested in this area of research for more than 15 years and, as part of our effort, wrote an extensive 2-part critical review of the topic.2,3 Several points that we emphasised in that review were not discussed by Silverman and colleagues, and we would like to address them in this letter.
