Physicians treating patients with epilepsy are often faced with two complementary problems: those dealing with adult patients are frequently unaware of their history, and those treating children often wonder what the outcome of the epileptic encephalopathy they have just diagnosed will be.
Through a review of the primary syndromes involved (West, Dravet, Lennox-Gastaut, etc.), the aim of this book is to answer these two questions.
The book first describes the condition, its discovery, definition, characteristics and treatments and the various social and medical care regimens required.
This is followed by a series of concrete case histories dealing with the entire disease from its initial diagnosis to its long term management.
These case histories are presented with illustrations showing the various stages in the development of the disease.
This is an indispensible guide for physicians, healthcare professionals and the social services.
