    The prevalence of epilepsy/seizures in APS patients is approximately 8%, which is nearly 10 times the prevalence of epilepsy in the general population (–1%). Epilepsy is a serious neurological condition that can affect anyone, at any age and from any walk of life. Epilepsy affects around one in every people in the UK. Every day, 87 people are diagnosed. One in every four people newly diagnosed with epilepsy is over the age of One in every children will have a diagnosis of epilepsy.

    Sean Flynn, M. Ali Babi, in Pharmacology and Therapeutics for Dentistry (Seventh Edition), Pathophysiology. The pathophysiology of epilepsy and seizures is diverse, accounting for the many different types of seizure disorders. However, one commonality across epilepsies is a disrupted balance between excitatory (via glutamatergic signaling) and inhibitory (via GABAergic signaling) drive.

      Hippocrates wrote the first book about epilepsy almost years ago. He rejected ideas regarding the divine etiology of epilepsy and concluded that the cause was excessive phlegm leading to abnormal brain consistency. Hippocratic teachings were forgotten, and divine etiologies again dominated beliefs about epileptic seizures during medieval. Conclusion: This first epidemiological study shows a high prevalence of epilepsy among patients presenting to the clinic in Lubumbashi, DRC, and reveals a significant treatment gap.

It is aimed at epileptologists and neurologists and provides a distillation of knowledge in a form that is helpful in the clinical setting/5(4).
