age clinical age seizures

Contrary to what has been asserted in the past, recent literature has demonstrated that the incidence of provoked and unprovoked seizures and of epilepsy and the prevalence of epilepsy in older people is high. It is therefore regrettable that seizures in old age are still relatively under-researched. There are reasons for not relying on data obtained from the general adult population when deriving a picture of epilepsy in old age. The presentation, the etiology, the clinical pharmacology, the functional consequences, and the associated core morbidity are all different in old age.
