Contribution to the genetics of symptomatic generalized tonic-clonic seizures: waking and sleep EEGs in siblings.

Abstract

The presence of epileptiform activity (EA) in the EEG of patients' relatives points to the significance of genetics in the etiology of epilepsies. Waking and sleep EEGs were recorded in 83 siblings of 54 patients suffering from symptomatic generalized tonic-clonic seizures. EA was recorded in at least one sibling of 27 (50%) of the 54 patients. When the 83… (More)
