Protocol For Research of Genetic Epilepsy
This is a registry, as opposed to a treatment study, and will investigate the course and characteristics of epilepsy with a genetic background. To that end we intend to construct a repository of genetic and clinical data from patients with epilepsy. This data will collected retrospectively and will be used to assess the correlation between the presence of certain genetic mutations and other clinical outcome data such as brain imaging.
