Abstract: This study searched for the knowledge of the most affected aspects in the quality of life (QoL) of patients with epilepsy. The sample consisted of 134 individuals with epilepsy, aging 18 to 59 years (M=35.38; DP=9.86) chosen at random from the Ambulatory of Epilepsy of HC/UNICAMP, interviewed by the QoL-65. Most of the subjects have not completed elementary school (58.2%), have not had any paid work (69.5%) and were single (48.5%). The most affected factor in epilepsy was the work area (31.29%), what reinforces studies showing the high level of unemployment or subemployment in epileptic population and aware to the importance of the insertion in the work-market as an economic and social integration factor and as a way of improving self-esteem.
