Etiology of Epilepsy

Congenital malformation is major risk in children of mothers with epilepsy. Traumatic injury due to accidents can cause Epilepsy. Brain conditions that causes Epilepsy are brain tumours and stroke.  The leading cause of epilepsy is stroke for people with age group more than 35. A mutation in a person’s genes can put him or her at risk of developing epilepsy. Often, these are the genes that control the excitability of nerve cells (neurons) in the brain. Around 40 percent of epilepsy is due to Genetic predisposition.
