Epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disorder that is characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures.[1][2]

These seizures are transient signs and/or symptoms due to abnormal, excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain.[3]

About 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy at any one time.[4]

Epilepsy is usually controlled, but not cured, with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases.

Not all epilepsy syndromes are lifelong – some forms are confined to particular stages of childhood.

Epilepsy should not be understood as a single disorder, but rather as a group of syndromes with vastly divergent symptoms but all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
