Childhood Epilepsy


This panel is developed for use in cases where early onset epileptic encephalopathy is suspected. Generally the earlier the age of onset the more likely it is that there is a genetic component. For neonatal onset of seizures, positive findings are made in approximately 60% of patients. The panel also contains genes for familial focal epilepsies and epilepsies with later age of onset of seizures.

The panel is frequently evaluated and updated. The current version includes 110 genes.
