Epilepsy case studies

, : Epilepsy case studies. Neurologic Clinics 24(2): 291-307

Epilepsy is a common disorder affecting all age groups. Diagnosis depends on accurate eyewitness description and electroencephalography. Many genetic, metabolic, and structural perturbations of cortical function can cause seizures. MRI is the most important test for etiology. Medication selection is based on classification of seizure type and epilepsy syndrome, with consideration of patient age, gender, and comorbidities. Surgery is a good treatment for some patients who have medically refractory partial-onset seizures.
