Abstract
Background:
Saint Valentine is a well-known patron saint of lovers. However, few know that Saint Valentine is the patron saint of epileptics.

Methods:
The origin of Valentine's day, the life of Saint Valentine, and his association with epilepsy were investigated through sundry literature, including medical, historical, religious, and literary as well as scientific sources.

Results:
Saint Valentine was a priest and martyr of the 3rd century. Through the monastery medicine age, he became widely known as a patron saint of epilepsy. Valentine’s day became an anniversary related to love by poets and writers such as Geoffrey Chaucer and William Shakespeare.

Conclusions:
While science and medicine have made remarkable progress in modern times, Saint Valentine would still be needed for epileptics.
