Earlier diagnosis of epilepsy of infancy migrating focal seizures may be possible

Takeaway

  • Migratory seizures in Epilepsy of Infancy with Migrating Focal Seizures (EIMFS) follow particular patterns rather than being random or independent, and show great intra-individual reproducibility, potentially allowing for earlier diagnosis than reports of KCNT1 mutation.

Why this matters

    Understanding the migration and dynamics of seizures in EIMFS may help with earlier diagnosis and disease management.
