High Ranking

  • Little is known about genetic testing in adult patients with epilepsy but at times if a genetic etiology can be determined, targeted therapies can be initiated and symptoms may be reduced
  • We report the characteristics and detection rates of a cohort of adult patients with epilepsy undergoing exome and MGPT
  • The detection rate in characterized genes for childhood onset and adult onset epilepsy were both 17.8%.
