Childhood Epilepsy With Occipital Paroxysms: Disease Bioinformatics
Epilepsy is defined as a diverse set of neurological disorders characterized by seizures. These seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Factors that may lead to epilepsy include, but are not limited to, brain trauma, gene mutations, strokes, brain cancer, and extensive drug and alcohol use. Seizures occur due to a large release of glutamate, which causes a spread of excitation throughout the brain, which propagates the electrical signal and can lead to neuronal death. Childhood epilepsy with occipital paroxysms is associated with occipital spikes, and there are two distinct forms. The late-onset form consists of seizures that lead to visual symptoms such as hallucinations. Migraines are likely to follow the seizures, and the seizures are often activated by eye closure. About 50 million people have epilepsy, with 80% of that population located in developing countries. It is possible to control epilepsy with medicine, but many cases may require surgery in order to relieve symptoms.
