Epilepsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of consciousness. Anyone can develop epilepsy. Epilepsy affects both males and females of all races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.
Epilepsy panel is used to identify genetic variants associated with epilepsy, a group of neurological disorders that can cause seizures and other symptoms. Epilepsy can be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, and this panel tests for genetic variants that are known to affect nerve function and signaling, as well as genes involved in other neurological processes.
This panel is designed for individuals with a family history of epilepsy or individuals with symptoms of the condition, such as seizures. Genetic testing can provide information on disease risk and severity, as well as inform treatment and management decisions. Testing can also inform family planning decisions and provide reassurance for unaffected family members.
