This leaflet offers information on our bi-monthly clinics that we run for children and families affected by Complex Epilepsies to try and identify the genetic cause behind each condition. Currently we know of 102 genes that are involved in causing many different types of epilepsy, and if we are able to identify the genetic cause in your child, then we may be able to give more tailored advice on prognosis and treatment, as well as implications for the wider family and risks for future children. However, we still have a lot more to learn, and therefore cannot always identify the reason why your child has epilepsy.
