About epilepsy

More than 2.5 million people in the United States have epilepsy and about 181,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, yet it remains one of the most misunderstood health problems. In most cases, there is no known cause. Remarkable advances, however, are improving the quality of life for those diagnosed with epilepsy.
