Abstract

There are new syndromes of epilepsy are being identified due to progress in the research of epilepsy, as it is being recognized as the most common chronic neurological disorder. Thus, there are additions in the context of classification, etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment therapies for epilepsy. Arising of these syndromes is due to de novo mutations and hereditary conditions in patients. Epilepsy with the age of onset of infancy or before has a poor prognosis and shown to be highly lethal or else survivors develop severe psychomotor impairments. One of the reasons can be attributed as most of these epileptic seizure episodes are missed or misdiagnosed as nonepileptic seizures because they co-exist with each other and thus, resulting in disabling of epilepsy. Hence, it is important to know nonepileptic seizure episodes that mimic epileptic seizures to avoid worsening of the diseased condition. Therefore, this review article discusses the detailed aspects of epilepsy intending to provide recent advances that would be helpful to epileptologist and researchers in the field of epilepsy in the correct understanding of the syndrome, associated causes, diagnosis and thus for implementing right treatment therapy.

Key Words

Epilepsy, Etiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, Treatment, Nonepileptic seizures.
