Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, previously known as idiopathic generalized epilepsy, is a form of generalized epilepsy whose cause is presumed to be genetic in origin. The first seizure typically occurs between the ages of 5-12, and symptoms may improve after the fourth decade of life. Seizure may be of different subtypes, including absence, myoclonic, and tonic-clonic. Find the latest research on juvenile myoclinic epilepsy here.

Early Myoclonic Encephalopathy

Early myoclonic encephalopathy is an epileptic syndrome typically diagnosed by three months of age. It is characterized by frequent seizures and severe early encephalopathy and has a severely reduced life expectancy. Causes can include metabolic abnormalities or genetic mutations.
