An old myth asserts, that the lunar phases influence epileptic seizures. This Christmas article examines the assertion by reviewing four articles about the correlation between the lunar phases and the frequency of seizures in patients with epilepsy and in patients with non-epileptic seizures. Hypotheses suggest, that sleep disturbances, melatonin level and nocturnal illumination may play a role in the relation between lunar phases and epileptic seizures. However, because of inconsistency in the literature, we cannot conclude any relation between the occurrence of epileptic seizures and the lunar phases.

Translated title of the contributionThe influence of lunar phases on epilectic seizures
