    Inherited Metabolic Epilepsies opens with a section on general principles for diagnosis and targeted intervention including screening protocols, laboratory testing, neuroimaging, seizure patterns and EEG findings, new technologies, and the ketogenic diet in metabolic epilepsies. The next two sections are devoted to the cohort of specific small  › Home › eBooks. • We review hereditary influences in the epilepsies from the perspective of medical genetics. The recurrence risk for epilepsy in close relatives may vary from 2% to 5% up to 50% depending on the etiology of the seizure disorder in the proband. We emphasize the identification of specific disorders

    Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy, also known as SUDEP, is the main cause of death in patients with epilepsy. SUDEP has an incidence of per person-years in adults and per person-years in children. SUDEP accounts for 8–17% of deaths in patients with ://   Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorder, that affects approximately 50 million people in the world and 90% of epilepsy cases are seen in the less developed countries[1,2].Epilepsy and seizures affect nearly 3 million Americans of all tance as etiology for epilepsy has been suspected for e the frequency of seizure disorder and epilepsy

    The neonatal and infantile periods show relatively high age-adjusted incidence of epilepsy compared with other ages of life (Hauser et al. ).The etiology of newly diagnosed epilepsies at these ages also is distinct, showing greater representation of epilepsies of unknown, genetic, or congenital etiologies (Hauser et al. ).The semiology and syndromic phenotypes of epilepsies that first 2 days ago  CiteScore: ℹ CiteScore: CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title.

The syndrome of epilepsy with generalized tonic-clonic seizures on awakening (GTCS-A) may be challenging to separate from epilepsy with sporadic GTC seizures (Figure ).
