Epilepsy

It is a chronic brain disorder that can affect people of any age. It is characterised by recurring convulsions caused by excessive electrical impulses in groups of brain cells. The consequences can be neurological, cognitive, psychological and social.

In 2005, epilepsy was defined as “a disorder of the brain characterized by an enduring predisposition to generate epileptic seizures”. Epilepsy is therefore diagnosed when patients experience two or more seizures, separated by a period of time that can last from 24 hours to 10 years.
