What is Epilepsy?
By definition, an epileptic disorder is present if several epileptic seizures occur spontaneously.
Epilepsy is a relatively common disease, affecting 0.5 - 1% of the European population, which corresponds to 1.6-3.2 million people!
Children and younger people are often affected, but the disorder may also begin at a later time, or even at a late age. There are many different causes of epilepsy, and its careful identification is essential for appropriate treatment.
