Epileptic Syndromes

Epilepsy causes may be results into epileptic syndromes by the specific features .These features include the period of time for having seizure in any person, the types of seizure, EEG findings, etc. Epileptic syndrome identification is useful as it helps to determine the basic causes as well as what anti-seizure medication should be given. Syndromes in which causes are not clearly recognized are very difficult to match with the modern classification of epilepsy. Classification for these cases was made arbitrarily. The idiopathic (unknown cause) categorization includes the syndromes in which the general medical features or age specificity strongly point to a supposed genetic cause. Childhood epilepsy syndromes are includes (unknown cause) class in which the cause is recognized genetic, for example benign rolandic epilepsy. Clinical syndromes in which epilepsy is not the leading feature (e.g. Angelman syndrome) were classified symptomatic but it was claimed to include these within the idiopathic classification. Classification of epileptic syndromes will may change with advances in research.

  • Benign rolandic epilepsy
  • Lennox-Gastaut syndrome
  • Angelman syndrome
