Major types of Epilepsies

Epilepsy can affect anyone, at any age and from any walk of life. In the UK, 600,000 or one in every 103 people has epilepsy. Epilepsy is a neurological condition. There are several types of epilepsy, each with different causes, symptoms, and treatments.

When making a diagnosis of epilepsy, your doctor may use one of the following terms: idiopathic, cryptogenic, symptomatic, generalized, focal, or partial. Idiopathic means there is no apparent cause. Cryptogenic means there is a likely cause, but it has not been identified. Symptomatic means that a cause has been identified. Generalized   means that the seizures are involving the whole brain at once. Focal or partial means that the seizure starts from one area of the brain.
