Epilepsia. Jan-Feb 1992;33(1):119-21. doi: 10.1111/j.1528-1157.1992.tb02293.x.

Abstract

Severe watery diarrhea and eosinophilic colitis induced by carbamazepine (CBZ) has not been described previously. We report the first known case of CBZ-induced watery diarrhea and eosinophilic colitis in a 57-year-old man receiving CBZ for secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizures that developed after a cerebral infarction.
