MIRANDA C, Marcelo. The medical history of Edgar Alian Poe. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2007, vol.135, n.9, pp.1216-1220. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872007000900019.

Edgar Allan Poe, one of the best American storytellers and poets, suffered an episodic behaviour disorder partially triggered by alcohol and opiate use. Much confusion still exists about the last days of his turbulent life and the cause of his death at an early age. Different etiologies have been proposed to explain his main medical problem, however, complex partial seizures triggered by alcohol, poorly recognized at the time when Poe lived, seems to be one of the most acceptable hypothesis, among others discussed

Palabras clave : Alcohol-induced disorders; Biography; Opioid-related disorders.
