In recent years, many different DNA mutations underlying the development of refractory epilepsy have been discovered. However, genetic diagnostics are still not routinely performed during presurgical evaluation and reports on epilepsy surgery outcome for patients with genetic refractory epilepsy are limited. We aimed to create an overview of the literature on seizure outcome following epilepsy surgery in patients with different genetic causes of refractory epilepsy.
